Western Hills

China, an East Asian country is one of the world’s oldest civilizations. It has a vast cultural history of more than five thousand years and an outstanding natural beauty. On the other hand, this country has remained a comparatively isolated and secluded one, and being a land of mystery, this country is not known to the western half of the world. However, China is rapidly developing and has grown in the phase of modernization, with an immense speed and is also welcoming the outer world to interact and do business with them.
To the west of Beijing lies an extended range of hills known as the Western Hills. The hills are home to a number of fascinating sites that include the Temple of the Sleeping Buddha called Wofo Si, the Fragrant Hills Park, the Temple of Azure Clouds called Biyun si and the Eight Great Sights called the Badachu. Unlike the manmade complexes of Beihai Park and the Summer Palace, the backdrop of the Western Hills has been preserved in its original appearance. The temples, pavilions and buildings that are found in the area, all appear to have been designed to blend into the natural scenery.
The Western Hills is definitely one of the popular tourist attractions in China. It is worth paying a visit while touring the country. This place will leave a pleasing and unforgettable memory and justify the proud cultural tradition of China.
