Original China’s top ten historic sitesThe first place is worthy of the name


In 1985, “China Tourism News” ranked China’s top ten historical sites, which are distributed throughout the motherland, including natural landscapes, historical buildings, cultural relics and cultural landscapes. Now that 35 years have passed, some scenic spots have long been well-known in the world, and some scenic spots are not well-known, and they have even been rated as “fictional”. Why is that? Get to know it together.

Great Wall

Although China is rich in land and resources and has many historical sites, the Great Wall is undoubtedly one of the best, and no other scenic spot can match it. This is the most famous military fortification in ancient China. It was built nearly 3,000 years ago and has a total length of 21,196.18 kilometers. It ranks first among China’s top ten historical sites and deserves its name.

Guilin Scenery

Almost everyone in China has heard such a sentence: “Guilin’s mountains and rivers are the best in the world.” This is not an exaggerated statement. China has many natural beauties, each with its own characteristics, but its scenery and humanities can resemble Guilin. The perfect combination is very few. When you come to Guilin, take a boat tour on the Lijiang River, as if you are in a beautiful fairyland, which makes people linger.

the Forbidden city

As the imperial palace of the Ming and Qing dynasties in China, the Forbidden City in Beijing can be regarded as a master of Chinese classical palace architectural art. It covers an area of ​​720,000 square meters, has more than 70 large and small palaces, more than 9,000 houses, and has different roofs. There are more than 10 kinds. Therefore, every time I go to the Forbidden City in Beijing, I cannot help being shocked by its grandeur.

Hangzhou West Lake

Among the numerous lake attractions in China, although West Lake is not the most beautiful, it is the most legendary. In this scenic area of ​​only 49 square kilometers, there are more than 100 park attractions, large and small, which can be called a step-by-step scene. Its interruption bridge, Leifeng Pagoda, Qianwang Temple, Jingci Temple and other scenic spots are well-known. Almost every tourist can say some allusions.

Suzhou gardens

If the Forbidden City in Beijing is the master of ancient Chinese palace architecture, then Suzhou gardens are the outstanding ones of Chinese classical private gardens. The history of Suzhou gardens can be traced back to the 6th century BC, but most of the gardens that survive today originated from the Ming and Qing dynasties, representing the Humble Administrator’s Garden, the Lingering Garden, and the Lion Forest.

Huangshan, Anhui

As the saying goes: “The Five Sacred Mountains do not look at the mountains when they return, and the Huangshan Mountain does not look at the mountains when they return.” The Five Sacred Mountains are believed to be familiar to everyone. They are Taishan, Huashan, Hengshan, Songshan and Hengshan. They are distributed in the north and south of the river and have their own characteristics. However, Huangshan Mountain is the master of the mountain landscape, not only the Five Sacred Mountains, but also the Five Sacred Mountains.

Three Gorges of the Yangtze River

I believe that my friends have memorized this poem by Li Bai: “The resignation of the Emperor Baidi to the colorful clouds, the thousand miles of Jiangling will be returned in one day.” Among them, Baidi City is one of the famous scenic spots in the Three Gorges of the Yangtze River, located on the north bank of the Yangtze River at the mouth of the Qutang Gorge. On the top of Baidi Mountain, there are towers of flying eaves and pavilions, hidden among the lush forests.

Sun Moon Lake, Taiwan

Among China’s top ten historical sites, Sun Moon Lake is undoubtedly the most controversial one. Many people think it is a mere name, and neither the scenery nor the historical heritage is commendable. However, as the largest natural freshwater lake in Taiwan Province of my country, Sun Moon Lake was a major tourist attraction during the Qing Dynasty. It is known as “a cave outside the world”, and it is unique and worth visiting.

Chengde Mountain Resort

Although compared to the other top ten places of interest, the mountain resort is not as famous as it is, but it is still a tourist attraction not to be missed. This is one of China’s three ancient architectural complexes, covering an area of ​​5.64 million square meters, with more than 120 groups of large and small buildings. It can be called “a garden in the mountains and mountains in the park”. Pavilions, pavilions and landscapes and grasslands reflect each other. Communication outlines a picture of a beautiful landscape garden.

Xi’an Qin Terracotta Warriors

Originally, among the many ancient monuments in Xi’an, it was particularly difficult to rank as the top one, because all of them were very large and many could be contended, but since the advent of the Qin terracotta warriors and horses, there has been no such controversy. Some people have always wanted to give the terracotta warriors and horses the title of “the eighth wonder of the world”. The starting point is good, but I think the historical and cultural significance of the terracotta warriors and horses does not need any title to prove it. It is one of the greatest miracles in the world. After the editor: Today, although these top ten places of interest are somewhat controversial, they are rare tourist attractions on the whole. If you have the opportunity, it is recommended to go all over and admire the great rivers and mountains of the motherland
