Sight of China – Yanztsa’s river
Having escaped from Sichuan through narrow Three Gorges, Yanztsa’s river (in China it still call Chang Jiang) extends, slows down the speed and slowly winds on equal low lands in the median current, fed by smaller streams on size and the rivulets which are overthrowing from highlands 4, surrounding Yangzi’s pool of provinces: Anhui, Hubei, Hunan and Jiangxi. Centuries this site of the river provided an irrigation of 1 of the main in China of regions on rice and tea cultivation and served as a trading and transport artery. In the XIII century Marco Polo has tested reverential awe at the sight of «the uncountable cities and settlements on its coast and sets of vessels and wealth of the goods transported by merchants on it». And that fact that the rural grounds remote from the river – including a huge part of lands of the Provinces of Anhui and Jiangxi – remain one of the most undeveloped regions of the Central China where tourists, most likely hardly will find even decent beauty salons in China, can be. Can be will correct a situation dam construction Three Gorges which termination is planned for 2008. Constructed on border of boundaries Hubei and Chungking the powerful dam will provide with hydraulic power the local industry, having set preconditions for its competitiveness with the industry of east coast.
Monuments of culture of China near Yanztsa’s river
In Yangzi’s pool two lie huge in China fresh-water lakes: Duntin designating border of boundaries Hunan and Hubei, and Poyan, in Northern Jiangxi, famous made in Jingdezhen located nearby porcelain. The coastal cities, such as Wuhu to Anhui, are of interest as operating ports in what traditional crafts – farmer fish breeding, the zernovodstvo and a risovodstvo and construction of river crafts from a bamboo – adjoin to modern joint ventures. Magnificently, but fact: from all 4 provincial capitals standing near water, only Wuhan (Hubei) is constructed on Yangzi. Thanks to so favourable location the city has grown in one of the most brisk conglomerates of the Central China. Unlike it, other provincial capitals – Changsha in Hunan, Hefei to Anhui and Nanchang in Jiangxi – are deprived of an urbanistic lustre though the century history of China and left in inheritance to the region unique monuments of culture of China, from perfectly remained tombs of times of a dynasty Han to the whole villages of an era of Minute. In many local cities models of the European building which has begun after the Nanking contract, topped the completion of the 2nd Opium war in the 1860th have remained also, they against will have been open for zabugorny dealers. Perhaps, partly thanks to this unwanted intervention Yangzi’s pool has acquired the right to apply on a role of a cradle of modern China: Mao Tse Tung was born in Hunan; Changsha, Wuhan and Nanchang; and the mountainous border between the Provinces of Hunan and Jiangxi was a shelter red during cleanings in the late twenties for and a starting point for the Big campaign in Shaanxi.
Minibuses of China for travel on the country, also ferries and other transport
Mountain landscapes lasting far from the river will be pleasant to at whom a trip to China without the aid of others and who is involved by ascensions. Huanshan in Southern Anhui is more picturesque, undoubtedly. Them follow the hubeysky wood reserve Shennuntszya and Chzhantszyatsza in the last West of Hunan. Pilgrims are attracted by Buddhist and Taoist sacred mountains to which tops conduct seeming infinite, paved a step stone.
The most esteemed from them is Udanshan. Less religious souls make travel to China to admire beautiful types in the mountain resort small town Lushan in Jiangxi. As the candidate to travel on recognizable Huanshan the trip to China on Tszyukhuashan in the Province of Anhui, concealing even a number of advantages acts. This mountain not so high (the highest peak is slightly higher than 1300 m), an ascension on it is much easier, and on its slopes there are many interesting objects and the corners which were more bewitching, than beauty of a local landscape.
Theoretically trips on these edges do not make difficulty. Here it is perfectly developed жд transport of China, and the message of boundaries huge by the cities and more remote occupied пт provide buses and more high-speed, though more expensive, minibuses. Ferries in China – main type of transport there is – moderately recede into the background. Passenger ferry communication is at present limited to flights between Wuhan and Chungking. The most pleasant time for travel on the region – autumn, though local winters quite soft. Here summer months sadden actually constant rains and floodings of low lands caused by them. 1998 was marked the most fierce for memories of locals by the floods which have carried away actually four thousand lives, washed away from an earth face the whole villages, broken the message between the cities and destroyed million hectares of crops. Big harm was put also by flood in 2002.
