The charms of China, to many foreigners, lie in its rich traditional cultures, ethnic customs, and how they are merged into the modernization process. In consideration of its rich history, city planners have to ensure that the traditional and ancient elements of the city will not be eroded. As a result, the environment and the layout of the city frequently embody both the modern and the ancient elements. A number of cities, such as Lhasa, Lijiang and Beijing, have strong historical and cultural affiliation, hence, they became cultural symbols of the country. And with their rich cultural heritages, each unique in its own way, these Chinese cities present a more exciting scenario for one to fully appreciate them.
