Fujian Province with its capital Fuzhou, is on China's southeastern coast. This province is blessed with a rich history, famous historical sites and beautiful natural landscapes. Fujian is a unique tourist attraction now being discov-ered by tourists.A popular site to visit is Mount Wuyi, lying in northern Fujian Province with a long cultural his-tory. The site of the Wuyi Palace built in the sev-enth century for emperors to conduct sacrificial activities remains today. It has been an important center of China's Taoism and was listed as one of the top nine Taoist Temples in the 10th century. Mount Wuyi is the most outstanding biodiver-sity conservation zone of Southeast China. It's the largest and most representative example of Chinese subtropical forests and South Chi-nese rainforests' biodiversity as well as being a UNESCO World Heritage Site.Henan Province is located in eastern central China, on the plain between the Yel-low and Huaihe rivers. To many people's great surprise, the little-known Yuntai Mountain, lo-cated in central China's Henan Province, has been called by some "the most beautiful moun-tain in China" as well as in the "Top 10 Most Beautiful Tourist Attractions in China". Shao-lin Temple, in the region of Song Mountain, is reputed to be the 'the Number One Temple under Heaven' and is included on UNESCO's World Heritage list in 2010. The temple is the cradle of the Chinese Zen Buddhism and the Shaolin Martial Arts.Henan Province is considered the cradle of Chinese civilization due to its location on the Yellow River. The remains of some of the earliest human settlements have been un-earthed there, including the over 7000 year old Peiligang Culture Site, the 6000 year old Yangshao Culture Remains and the 5000 year old Dahe Culture Remains. All these cultural remains have profound significance in the history of Chinese civilization. Shaanxi Province is located in the very heart of China and includes most of the middle stretch of the Yellow River. As far back as one million years ago, some of China's earliest in-habitants lived in this region and began spreading their culture along the life sustaining Yellow River. Throughout history 13 dynasties established capi-tals here. Because of this rich history, cultural rel-ics and ruins are plentiful and many can be found preserved both above and underground. Shaanxi is call the 'authentic history museum' in China. There are many historic places to be visited. In the capital city, Xian, you can see the City Wall, which was begun in the Han Dynasty, a cen-tury before the Christian era, and is now the largest and most well preserved ancient wall existing in China. Forest of Stone Steles Mu-seum boasts the largest collection of stone tab-lets in China. In or near the city are 72 ancient tombs and remains, including the mausoleum of the Tang emperor Wuanyuan (the Yellow Emperor), who initiated Chinese civilization.The highlight of a Shaanxi tour is the amazing Museum of Qin Terra-cotta Warriors and Hors-es who guard a site honoured as the Eighth Great Wonder of the World. This year Xi'an will host the International Horticultural Exposition from 28 April to 22 October, 2011.
