Ancient China

With a history of over 5000 years, China has a profound and mysterious history. Like other great civilizations, China experienced rise and fall of every great dynasty and accumulated abundant valuables in every respect, attracting people all over the world to explore year upon year. Despite periods of turbulence and disunity, China enabled herself to grow, to expand, to integrate, to forbear, to learn, and to develop, and ultimately, becomes a great country we see today.
