► DESTINATIONS BY ARCHITECTURE THEME

Consciously or unconsciously the architecture you are surrounded by in China will be a major part of the overall impression you get of the country and China certainly has the full range from the dire to the inspiring, ancient to modern, mega projects to time old village houses. With 1.35 billion people to provide for China needs a vast amount of buildings to do so. You will see legions of brand new apartment blocks and offices surrounding the often more historical and traditional centres of each city.
