Three Cities

February 2016

Hopping through few of the largest cities of China: Xian - Ancient capital of the West; Beijing - current political and cultural centre; and Shanghai - the largest city proper in the world.

After long travels through inhospitable deserts and mountains of central asia and western China, I arrive to the largest cities of the eastern nation. Namely I pass through Xian, the ancient capital of China and city with largest city wall in the world; Beijing, the current culutral and political capital with its famous forbidden city; Suzhou, on the outskirts of Shanghai, ancient city with many water chanells but booming industry around; and ultimately Shanghai, the largest city proper in the world and home to few of the largest skyscrapers on the planet.
