hey green, there are a million places in the world that are worse off than china, chinese life is not all you say it is, in general the people there don't live much diffrently than people live here. I am going to live there, not because of some pretty pictures, but because I have alwase wanted to live there. All you know about china is what you've read in news papers, and the only thing that maes the papers is turmoil. China is nothing like what it was just a decade ago, and even though it is a work in progress, it is by no means a 3rd world tyranny.

My God, some of you people are absolutley clueless. Of course it's stunning but the country itself is in utter turmoil, full of disease, literal human slavery, extreme industrialism in the cities and even countryside, and forget freedom and noncomforism there. Yes, I finnd the Far East, including China, to be very interesing (I have a map of China in my room for Christ's sake), but the fact is, currently, it's one the worser places to live, you fools "oh gosh-e-gee, I wanna live in china, because some pictures look pretty!". Now that's ignorance. Want to know a place that's somewhat alike in culture,history and landscape? Try for South Korea, Japan, Thailand, maybe Laos. One place in China I would agree with though, is Tibet, however,they're not exactly Chinese. But for the love of God, as beautful as it is, and as wonderful the people are, the leaders, the government itself, just isn't (but hey, what government really is?)

The Phillipines do not have the monopoly on rice paddies. I have been to China, and the limestone formations are from the Li River (Between Guilin and Yangshuo) and the photo of the rock that looks like an Elephant drinking is DEFINITELY Guilin. http://www.travelchinaguide.com/attracti...

AVDPeonix. fist of all chinese citys are very advanced, New York would be considered the size of an average city. theve got electricity and all those things, and I have no idea if your trying to be ironic or somthing with that whole "cable tv and 7/11s" thing but if your not in what world are those things a part of paradise, is there a star bucks when you enter heaven. and you have no idea what life is like in china. for any of the people, especially what it's like for the people liveing in rural china. it's not like nazi germany or north korea. The chinese people are practicly on the verge of an entierly free market society (wether or not thats a good thing or not is a matter of opinion) people in china are just as proud to live in china as americans are to live in america. it is entierly just your arrogance that you think you know so much about a country and a government that is so far removed from you

With the mass scale wholesale animal abuse that we Americans subject our feed pigs, cows, and especially chickens to -- we should freaking have upside-down candy pyrimid mountains. I mean, we grind up male baby chickens WHILE THEY'RE ALIVE to make commercial livestock/housepet feed.

By the way, a vast majorty of those cats and dogs killed in china are generally raised for their fur, which is sold to American manufacturers of pet toys (Think: Hartz Real Fur Mice, etc. etc.) and Asian fur novelty-toy manufacturers (again, exported to America.)

The ones that are eaten live and die in conditions no better or worse than those of our own pigs, an animal of easily equatable intellect.

Dammit. This isn't even China. It's the Banaue Rice Terraces in the Philippines. One of the Forgotten Wonders of the World.

ok all this about cruelty to dogs and cats in china, i know it's horrible but do you really think that just because a minority do it then everyone in china must agree with it? What about battery chickens, that's disgusting but it doesn't mean we shouldn't get nice hills too. Plenty of animal cruelty goes on in the world. Anyway, this isn't even china apparently.

ok i'm off soap box. Great pics, btw!

Lucky Communist Chinese animal-killers...
It's gorgeous, but if it really is China, how is that fair? They throw dogs and cats in crates and stomp on them, and they get these lovely hills? Although not all Chinese are bad...lol it's still quite beautiful

The sad part is that eventually China will look much like our urbanized countries, full of polution and industrialization. Even now tradtional fishing villages are being destroyed from the polution manufacturing plants are dumping into the rivers, and farmers are being moved out of their farming territory to make way for urban expansion...
