When it comes to Unusual Tourist Attractions In China where do you even start!? This is the land of the unusual and the land of the strange. If anything, it is not finding the more quirky things to visit it is a case of whittling it down to just ten of the very best. After some long, hard decisions I have finally done it…
10 – Shanghai – guff.com/upside-down-houses-exist-and-they-boggle-the-mind%20Shanghai
There are lots of upside-down houses all over the world, but I love seeing them, so they will always make my list of favourite places to see.
9 – Beijing – www.telegraph.co.uk/travel/destinations/asia/china/10720849/Chinas-weirdest-tourist-attractions.html
What better place to stay while on a tour of the weird than in a hotel made to represent 3 Chinese gods!
8 – Hunan Province – www.boomsbeat.com/articles/116/20140118/tianzi-mountains-china.htm
Like the strange, alien world of the movie Avatar, this is one amazing place full of cable cars, world’s tallest lifts, glass bottom walks and other amazing things for all those brave enough to do them.
7 – Panjin – thecitizensoffashion.com/2013/08/21/beauty-is-a-beach-6-of-the-worlds-most-unusual-beaches/panjin-red-beach-china-2
While not a beach as such, it is just a name the locals call it. This is one of the world’s largest wetlands that is covered in seepweed that turns red at the autumn time.
6 – Jiangsu Province – forum.xcitefun.net/richest-village-of-china-huaxi-village-t69204.html
Considered to be China’s richest village it is a site to see that is made up of over 2,000 homes that are all the same shape and size.
5 – Guangxi – www.atlasobscura.com/places/reed-flute-cave
While it is only colourful thanks to its neon lighting by over 4,000 LED lights it is still amazing to see.
4 – Tianjin – www.thousandwonders.net/Tianjin+Eye
It’s a giant observatory Ferris wheel that is actually part of a bridge! What is not to love about that?
3 – Yunnan – www.discoverchinatours.com/travel-guide/yuanyang/honghe-hani-rice-terraces/honghe-hani-rice-terrace-04.htm
It might not be much more than a 1,000,000 acre farm, but it looks amazing and was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
2 – Foshan – www.amusingplanet.com/2014/02/toilet-bowl-waterfall-in-foshan-china.html
It’s a waterfall made from over 10,000 recycled toilets! Everyone needs to see this at least once in their life, even if it is just in picture form.
1 – Guoliang – www.atlasobscura.com/places/guoliang-tunnel
Nice to look at outside, but inside it is a treacherous, slippery climb that will get the heart racing and fear flowing.
