   schema:description "With full-colour photographs throughout, this work captures the natural and architectural diversity of China and it's many people. In the Land of the Dragon, cities with skylines that look like backdrops to sci-fi movies coexist with millennium-old monuments. Densely populated cities contrast with the forests and brilliant lakes of Sichuan, the Himalayan peaks, and the deserts and Blue Mountains of Xinjiang. Here a kaleidoscope of perspectives opens up on life in and around nine major metropolises, from Zhenghou and its archaeological discoveries to Macao, the Las Vegas of the East. The photography captures the entire range of China's natural, architectural, and human diversity, while the book's narrative explores the many traditions and aspirations nurtured by the people. The result is a beautiful tableau that lets the reader discover today's China through a choice of sumptuous itineraries."@en ;
