China is slightly larger than the United States. It is the most populated country in the world, with over 1.25909 billion people, about 22 percent of the world's total.

As a tourist spot, China offers a limitless variety of spectacular scenery and historical wonders. Generally May, September and October are ideal for touring anywhere in the country. During June to August, travelers often visit central and northern China, as rainfall is likely to occur in southern China during this time. Moreover October is ideal to travel anywhere and any region in the country. Because of the popularity of this tourist destination, large numbers of flights between China and countries like the United States, France, Britain and Hong Kong have been added, making it easier to make travel plans. As a matter of fact, during 2004-05, the revenue of the tourism industry of China exceeded $30 billion and is expecting to rise. The Chinese government has spent billions developing China's tourism industry by establishing international five star hotels including Hilton, Hyatt and Sheraton. They have also improved their rail system and are continuously spending money to upkeep their many ancient monuments and historical sites.
