China is great not only in size, but also in the number of miracles hidden in it. It is difficult to find a state that will be just as multifaceted and mysterious. Here, many centuries of tradition are connected with the metal and glass of skyscrapers, and the ancient temples do not interfere with the European lifestyle. Central Asia with its deserts, true tropics in the south, the Roof of the World Tibet, caves, remnants of ancient civilizations and much more create the paradoxical pattern of this country.
Most of China’s territory lies within the temperate and subtropical zones, the southern part is in the tropics. The opinion that China is hot all year round is wrong. Summer is hot with a small amount of precipitation (average temperature + 32 ° C). Winter in the north and north-east is cold with temperatures as low as -25 ° C, in the central part the climate is milder and winter temperatures do not fall below -5 ° C. In the very south (Guangdong province) you can sunbathe and swim all year round (average air temperature is + 30 ° C, water + 22 ° C).
