Gorgeous book of photographs. Includes everything from ancient and natural wonders though modern marvels like the Watercube and the Bird's Nest. There's a great picture of the Forbidden City in the snow that's simply breathtaking. There are a lot of interesting panoramic foldouts too. My only complaint is its small dimensions.

Beautiful scenery!! Amazing look at the history that China has managed to maintain over thousands of years. We should learn from them how to keep the good from our past.
