More than 2,000 years ago, there were students from East Asia and the Arab States who came to China to study. From the 19th century onwards, China began to build modern universities. After the founding of The People’s Republic of China in 1949, an increasing number of universities were established. China, an ancient, mysterious and beautiful land, is always appealing to adventurous foreign visitors. As the third largest country in the world occupying an area of 9,600,000 sq km, it spans 62 degrees of longitude and 49 degrees of latitude.
