Hello Mi Fans,

You might feel like you’re stuck in a rut in your daily life. Or you’re yearning for something exciting and different. You’re craving new experiences and new challenges. Travel is the ideal place to test yourself. With the the Mi Bunny's Wanderlust, we would be exploring various countries.

Today let's talk about Mi Bunny's HQ China! China is a fascinating place, with a storied history culminating in its emergence as an economic superpower. China is a place filled with sites that offer glimpses into the transformation of a country that has become the most talked about nation in the world today. From awe-inspiring works of art to tombs shrouded in mystery, we've uncovered China's various Wonders.


  • The Great Wall
Perhaps China's most iconic man-made structure is its massive Great Wall. At 8,850km (5,500 mi), it is the largest man-made structure in history. It is the greatest human construction project ever, in terms of man hours and lives expended, and it is by far the world's longest wall.  Construction of the Great Wall began under Emperor Qin in 221 B.C. and continued up until the Qing Dynasty. The purpose of the wall was to protect the Chinese empire from any attacking armies. The Great Wall's structure changed over its 2,000 years to include higher walls, passes, signal towers and watchtowers. Today, the Great Wall is one of China's most popular tourist attractions. Today, much of the wall has been renovated and reconstructed from centuries of damage, and continues to be preserved for tourist purposes.


  • Terra Cotta Warriors (Xi'an, Shaanxi Province)
The Terracotta Warriors in the city of Xi’an, are a collection of sculptures built for the funeral of China’s first emperor, Qin Shi Huang. In 1974, while digging a well in the city of Xi'an, Chinese farmers discovered an underground tomb filled with 8,000 statues of ancient Chinese warriors together with 130 chariots with 520 horses.  They are so vividly and exquisitely made and painted with colours, showing the skilful workmanship of Chinese designers 2,000 years ago. According to Chinese tradition, death is simply a continuity of life. People can take their possessions with them in death. Some international famous historical archaeologists think it is comparable with the “Seven Wonders of the Ancient World”, calling it “the Eighth Wonder of the World.”


  • Forbidden City
The Forbidden City in Beijing is the largest ancient palace in the world. Situated of the north side of Tiananmen Square is the Palace Museum, or Forbidden City. Stretching over 7 million square feet and containing over 10,000 rooms, the Forbidden City was built to represent God's palace in heaven. The Forbidden City was the imperial palace of the Ming and Qing dynasties; it is the largest and most complete imperial complex and really an unparalleled masterpiece of ancient architectural technology. Before the 20th century, the public was not allowed to enter the Forbidden City. The palace buildings were built with wooden, yellow glazed tile roof, green white stone base, decorated with magnificent paintings. The palace stands in a line from south to north on the central axis, the left and right sides is symmetrical. It marks the country’s long cultural tradition and also shows a spectacular architectural achievement by craftsmen about five hundred years ago.


  • Hanging Monastery (Mount Hengshan, Shanxi Province)
Located at the foot of Mount Hengshan on the west cliff of Jinxia Gorge, the Hanging Monastery has been filling visitors with wonder for over 1,400 years.  Since it hangs on the west cliff of Jinxia Gorge more than 50 meters above the ground, it is called Hanging Monastery. The gravity-defying Xuan Kong Si Hanging Temple is unlike any other place you’ve seen before, as it miraculously hangs on the cliff of Hengshan Mountain, about 246 feet above the ground. In spite of centuries of the harshest climate conditions, including a massive earthquake in 1303, the Hanging Monastery has remained unscathed. The 105-foot-long Hanging Temple consists of 40 halls, two pavilions (South Pavilion and North Pavilion), and a bridge connecting the pavilions. The halls are decorated with some 80 religious statues, with one of the halls containing statues of Sakyamuni, Confucius, and Lao-tzu.


  • Leshan Buddha (Leshan City, Sichuan Province)
Over the centuries, the cultural treasures springing from the fertile Sichuan Basin region have grown in number. Among them, the most remarkable is the Leshan Giant Buddha. As the largest Buddha statue in the world, the Leshan Giant Buddha draws millions of tourists and Buddhist pilgrims from all over the world. The statue stands over 233 feet high and over 90 feet wide. According to records, it took 90 years to carve the huge Buddha. The entire statue is made of stone, except for the ears which were crafted of wood, affixed, and then covered with clay. The charm of the Buddha lies not only in its size but also in its architectural artistry. There are 1,021 buns in the Buddha's coiled hair. These have been skillfully embedded in the head. The skill is so wonderful that the 1,021 buns seem integral to the whole.


  • Avatar Mountains
This area of Hunan province contains three major tourist sights: Zhangjiajie National Forest Park, China’s first national forest park and home to the Avatar stone pillar said to have inspired film director Cameron; the Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon, where you will find the world’s highest glass-bottomed bridge; and Tianmen mountain, which boasts the world’s longest cable car ride and spectacular views. It’s all part of a Unesco-listed World Heritage Site called the Wulingyuan Scenic and Historic Interest Area. Zhangjiajie is famous for its 3,000 vertical pillars, each hundreds of feet tall and covered in dense green foliage. These pillars were formed by erosion and draw in upwards of 30 million tourists every year. One particularly majestic column stands over 3,500 feet tall and apparently served as the inspiration for the floating mountains in the film Avatar. Park officials have since renamed this pillar “Avatar Hallelujah Mountain.”


  • Zhangye Danxia landforms, Gansu province
The awe-inspiring geological landforms of Zhangye National Geopark are often named as one of the most beautiful sights in China. The surreal, multicolored landscape is formed of sandstone, laid down by sedimentation over millions of years and shaped into dramatic peaks and troughs by erosion. Zhangye's danxia landscape has lots of precipitous red cliffs, most of which are several hundred meters high, and multicolored ridges of weathered strata, sometimes stretching to the horizon. These formations, sometimes smooth sometimes sharp, stand out against the greens or grays of the plains, looking grand and magnificent, vigorous and virile.


  • Mount Changbai and Heaven Lake, Jilin province
Changbai Mountain is situated in Antu County of Yanbian Korean Autonomous Prefecture in northeast China, bordering the Democratic People's Republic of Korea in the south. As a dormant volcano, Changbai Mountain boasts marvelous lakes, amazing hot springs, forests stretching to the horizon and many rare animals & plants like Changbai Mountain ginseng.  Heaven Lake is a crater lake in a caldera at the summit of Mount Changbai on the border between China and North Korea. The caldera was created by a volcanic eruption in around 969 AD and sits at an elevation of 2,189 meters above sea level. As a result of this high elevation, the peaks around the lake are capped with snow for most of the year, giving the mountain its other name of “white headed mountain” (Baitoushan). There is splendid scenery during the four seasons, but it is especially beautiful in winter.


  • Shi Bao Zhai Temple (Yangtze River (south bank))
Shibaozhai (Chinese Name: 石宝寨), literally means Stone Treasure Fortress, located in Zhong County at the south bank of the Yangtze River, 278 kilometers away from Chongqing City. The Shi Bao Zhai Temple stands 12 stories high and is attached to a cliff without a single nail.  In addition to the murals, sculptures in the wooden architecture, the view of the river and the farms and village below is terrific. And there were two unusual interesting features of the Shibaozhai fortress. The first is the Duck Well at the top of the hill. Supposedly you can take a duck and drop it down the well and it will re-appear swimming in the Yangtze far at the bottom of the hill. The Rice Flowing Well is the second feature. Legend has it that enough rice would flow out of the small well hole each day to feed the monks that lived in the temple and their guests.


  • The Grand Canal
The Grand Canal (or Beijing-Hangzhou Grand Canal) is the longest artificial river in the world and also one of the oldest canals in the world. The Grand Canal rivals the Great Wall in being two great projects in ancient China. The Grand Canal is a vast waterway system in the north-eastern and central-eastern plains of China, running from Beijing in the north to Zhejiang province in the south. The Grand Canal’s flourishing lasted for over 1779 years. It has played an important role in ensuring the country’s economic prosperity and stability and is still in use today as a major means of communication.


  • Giant Pandas of Chengdu
When someone says Chengdu there are generally two things which come to mind: pandas, which are native to Sichuan, and the fiery centerpiece of Sichuan cuisine called hotpot. Here, the Chengdu Panda Base aims to recreate this endangered creature’s natural habitat in order to preserve the livelihood of what is considered one of China’s national treasures. Animal lovers will adore it here as it’s one of the few places you can see (and hold!) the endangered animal. Along with the research and breeding facility is the Giant Panda Museum, which aims to educate tourists about the animal, its history and its conservation. Throughout your visit to China you’ll find the panda has an important place in Chinese culture, and is used often as a symbol of peace and friendship.


Well, these are not just all. Apart from these beautiful places, there are Potala Palace, “Baoxie Plank Road, Zhaozhou Stone Bridge, also called Anji Bridge, Dunhuang Mogao Caves, also known as “Thousand Buddha Caves”, Tiananmen Square, Nanjing Road - the shopping street that runs through the city of Shanghai, Jiuzhaigou nature reserve and National Park, Mount Wudang- the slopes of which are adorned with magnificent temples, palaces and bridges -- each built in harmony with the surrounding landscape.

Even today we are still amazed by wonders created without modern technology and machines. All the wonders are not-to-miss destinations and will offer you a once-in-a-lifetime journey. You can also share your travelling experience with us and share photos clicked with your Mi devices!
