China’s Attractions Added to World Heritage List

China’s Hani Rice Terraces and Xinjiang Tianshan area were recently added to the UNESCO World Heritage List, bringing the total number of World Heritage Sites in China to 45. The Hani Rice Terraces, in Yunnan Province, were developed over 1,300 years by the Hani people of China, creating not only a functional farming system, but also a stunning landscape. The Xinjiang Tianshan area is part of the Tianshan mountain system, one of the largest mountain ranges in the world. The natural scenery of the larger area includes spectacular snow-capped peaks, untouched forests, clear rivers, red canyons and even extends into deserts with large dunes, making for a visually striking experience.
