  • China Travel | Places to visit in China | Rough Guides
    Guide Splendidly diverse in its geographic ethnic culinary and social make up China is a nation on the march Developing at a rate unmatched in human history already huge cities are adding sprawling suburbs and cutting edge architecture on a day by day basis even as an ever expanding web of high speed rail ties the country together Nevertheless this apparent modernity is based on a civilization that has remained intact continually recycling itself for over four millennia Chinese script reached perfection during the Han dynasty 220 BC 220 AD and those stone lions standing sentinel outside sleek new skyscrapers first appeared as temple guardians over three thousand years ago Indeed it is the tension and contrasts between change and continuity that make modern China so fascinating The first thing that strikes visitors to the country is the extraordinary density of its population In much of China villages towns and cities seem to sprawl endlessly into one another along the grey arteries of busy expressways Move to the far south or west of the country however and the population thins out as it begins to vary indeed large areas are inhabited not by the Chinese but by scores of distinct ethnic minorities ranging from animist hill tribes to urban Muslims Here the landscape begins to dominate green paddy fields and misty hilltops in the southwest the scorched epic vistas of the old Silk Road in the northwest and the magisterial mountains of Tibet While travel around the country itself is the easiest it has ever been it would be wrong to pretend that it is an entirely simple matter to penetrate modern China The main tourist highlights the Great Wall the Forbidden City the Terracotta Army and the Yangzi gorges are relatively few considering the vast size of the country

  • Cambodia Travel | Places to visit in Cambodia | Rough Guides
    modest player on the world stage this was once the seat of one of Asia s most magnificent early civilizations the mighty Khmer empire of Angkor whose legendary temples continue to provide a touchstone of national identity as well as attracting millions of visitors every year Away from the temples much of the country remains refreshingly untouristed and in many places largely unexplored Cambodia s sleepy towns and cities are a delight with their faded colonial architecture and old fashioned charm while in the countryside a host of memorable landscapes await from the mighty Mekong River and great Tonle Sap lake to the remote forested highlands of Rattanakiri Mondulkiri and the Cardamom Mountains Down south in complete contrast the coast serves up a beguiling cocktail of party lifestyle hedonism idyllic beaches and magical islands Much of Cambodia s appeal derives from its slightly anachronistic faintly time warped character Compared to the far more populous and economically developed countries of Thailand and Vietnam that hem it in on either side Cambodia remains an essentially rural society and something of a regional backwater The country s provincial hinterlands appear to have changed little in generations offering a refreshing throwback to an older and simpler era from the outside at least with beautiful stilted wooden houses set amid a patchwork of rice paddies and sugar palms And although living standards for most of the population are basic in the extreme Cambodians as a whole remain among Asia s most friendly and welcoming people It s perhaps this warmth and hospitality which most impresses many visitors to Cambodia and which is all the more astonishing given the country s tragic recent past For many Cambodia remains synonymous with the bloody excesses of the murderous Khmer Rouge regime whose delusional leaders succeeded in killing or

    incomparable range of landscapes cultures and people Walk the streets of any Indian city and you ll rub shoulders with representatives of several of the world s great faiths a multitude of castes and outcastes fair skinned turbanned Punjabis and dark skinned Tamils You ll also encounter temple rituals that have been performed since the time of the Egyptian Pharaohs onion domed mosques erected centuries before the Taj Mahal was ever dreamt of and quirky echoes of the British Raj on virtually every corner That so much of India s past remains discernible today is all the more astonishing given the pace of change since Independence in 1947 Spurred by the free market reforms of the early 1990s the economic revolution started by Rajiv Gandhi has transformed the country with new consumer goods technologies and ways of life Today the land where the Buddha lived and taught and whose religious festivals are as old as the rivers that sustain them is the second largest producer of computer software in the world with its own satellites and nuclear weapons However the presence in even the most far flung market towns of internet cafés smart phones and Tata Nano cars has thrown into sharp relief the problems that have bedevilled India since long before it became the world s largest secular democracy Poverty remains a harsh fact of life for around forty percent of India s inhabitants no other nation on earth has slum settlements on the scale of those in Delhi Mumbai and Kolkata Calcutta nor so many malnourished children uneducated women and homes without access to clean water and waste disposal Many first time visitors find themselves unable to see past such glaring disparities Others come expecting a timeless ascetic wonderland and are surprised to encounter one of the most

    planet Prepare to be pleasantly disorientated as you negotiate this fascinating land where ancient gods customs and craftsmanship are mixed up with cutting edge modern technology futuristic fashions and up to the second style High speed trains whisk you from one end of the country to another with awe inspiring punctuality In the suburbs of a sprawling metropolis you can catch sight of a farmer tending his paddy field then turn the corner and find yourself next to a neon festooned video games parlour One day you could be picking through fashions in a boutique designed by an award winning architect the next relaxing in an outdoor hot spring pool watching cherry blossom or snowflakes fall depending on the season Few other countries have in the space of a few generations experienced so much or made such an impact Industrialized at lightning speed in the late nineteenth century Japan shed its feudal trappings to become the most powerful and outwardly aggressive country in Asia in a matter of decades After defeat in World War II it transformed itself from atom bomb victim to economic giant the envy of the world Having weathered a decade long recession from the mid 1990s Japan is now relishing its soft power as the world s pre eminent purveyor of pop culture with the visual mediums of anime and manga leading the way In the cities you ll first be struck by the mass of people These hyperactive metropolises are the place to catch the latest trend the hippest fashions and must have gadgets before they hit the rest of the world It s not all about modernity however Tokyo Kyoto Ōsaka and Kanazawa for example also provide the best opportunities to view traditional performance arts such as kabuki and nō plays as well as a wealth of Japanese visual arts in major museums Outside the cities there s a vast range of travel options from the UNESCO World Heritage listed Shiretoko National Park in Hokkaidō to the balmy subtropical islands of Okinawa and you ll seldom have to go far to catch sight of a lofty castle ancient temple or shrine or locals celebrating at a colourful street festival In common with all developed countries Japan is not a cheap place to travel in or to but there s no reason why it should be wildly expensive either Some of the most atmospheric and traditionally Japanese places to stay and eat are often those that are the best value There s been significant price cutting in some areas in recent years particularly airline tickets which now rival the famed bargain rail passes as a means to get to far flung corners of the country It s not all perfect however The Japanese are experts at focusing on detail the exquisite wrapping of gifts and the tantalizing presentation of food are just two examples but often miss the broader picture Rampant development and sometimes appalling pollution are difficult to square with a country also renowned
