Abstract:

China is the third-largest country in the world after Russia and Canada, covering 3.7 million square miles (9.6 million square kilometers). Its massive geography stretches from the Himalayan Mountains of Tibet in the west to the Yangzte River Valley in the east, from the desert plateau of Inner Mongolia in the north to the Pearl River Delta in the south. China's neighbors are a varied bunch. To the south lie Vietnam, Laos, Myanmar, India, Bhutan, and Nepal, while Pakistan, Afghanistan, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, and Kazakstan nudge China's western edge. It shares its northern border with Russia, Mongolia, and, in the far northeastern corner, North Korea. The special administrative regions of Hong Kong and Macao were returned to China at the end of the 1990s from Britain and Portugal respectively. Both are in the south of the country. China also regards Taiwan as part of its territory, even though Taiwan is ruled by its own democratic government.
