I went to China for a brief working visit, and I thought that Shanghai was interesting, but Beijing totally grabbed me.
China is one of those vast, continental conglomerates that... I mean, if they were to start a tourist trade in China, they'd just bus people in from another province, you know what I mean?
They're very self-contained.
More understand China, then more people will have interest in China and more people will come to China to visit us
because I am a tourist ambassador.
The traveler sees what he sees,
the tourist sees what he has come to see.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
There are two worlds: the world of the tourist and the
world of everyone else. Often they're side by side.
But the tourist doesn't actually see how people live.
The tourist who moves about to see and hear and open himself to all the influences of the places which condense centuries of human greatness is only a man in search of excellence.
