Since the dawn of civilization, man has created many incredible landmarks, while nature and time have shaped the environment into breath-taking forms. One country that is rich with cultural heritage sites and natural wonders is China. From the majestic ancient city of Liangzhu to Mount Fanjing and Mount Wuyi, here we reveal some of China’s most remarkable places of beauty that beg to be explored. Witness them in their beauty on YouTube.

Liangzhu Ancient City

A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the ancient city of Liangzhu in Zhejiang Province offers a window into China’s historic past. Dating back 5,000 years, the sprawling archaeological site spanning 3.66 km comprises a palatial complex with cemeteries, granaries and sophisticated waterways. Near the ruins is a museum where relics can be witnessed and China’s past can be explored further. To protect Liangzhu, remote sensing UAVs patrol the site to keep it safe, while traffic has been reduced in the area.

Mount Fanjing

Piercing the skies of Tongren in Guizhou Province, Mount Fanjing is the summit of the Wuling Mountain Range. A UNESCO World Natural Heritage Site, the rocky peak is known for its unique tropical ecosystem and magnificent biodiversity with 800 plant species. From the beautiful Dove tree and Chinese tulip tree to the Guizhou golden monkeys unique to the area, Mount Fanjing bursts with wildlife. To conserve this amazing ecosystem, China has encouraged sustainable local socio-economic development to achieve a balance between protection and development.

Mount Wuyi

Dotted with ancient temples and monasteries and sliced up by a winding emerald river, Mount Wuyi in Fujian Province is a sight to behold. A UNESCO World Cultural & Natural Heritage Site, this spiritual place gave birth to the ancient Min culture and Zhu Zi Neo-Confucianism. China goes to great lengths to conserve Mount Wuyi, using technology to monitor data, regulate fishing and keep ecological equilibrium.

China is deeply committed to taking measures to protect its beautiful natural and cultural heritage sites. Preserving these wonders will continue their legacy for generations to come and are of great significance for the rest of the world. Indeed, it’s all of mankind’s responsibility to conserve the planet’s marvels and this mission should be undertaken for the benefit of all.
