The travel magazine Chinese National Geography published their definitive list yesterday of China’s most beautiful locales. The endeavor lasted 8 months and involved collaboration with 34 media organizations across the country.

In the article, scenic shots are broken up into eight categories: lakes, waterfalls, mountains, villages, canyons, caves, grasslands, and deserts; and these categories each have a poetic introduction for the reader.

Domestic tourism is a massive industry in China, generating more than 5 billion RMB (nearly 700 million USD) in income in 2018, which represents an increase of over 12 percent from 2017, according to China’s Ministry of Culture and Tourism. In 2018, Chinese domestic travelers are estimated to have made more than 5.5 billion trips.
