Hong Kong, China:

The high rise building at Hong Kong's waterfront looks like a space rocket ready to take off at night.

Victoria Bay is the most famous and main bay in the fifteen baies of Hong Kong. Motor boats in the foreground, Hong Kong shows off her waterfront closely packed urban buildings.

They plunge down the tracks in bright daylight with the distant residential high rise buildings as the backdrop.

Tokyo, Japan:

Avenue in Shinjuku. Tokyo, Japan

Crowded crossing in Ginza shopping district. Tokyo, Japan

Imperial Palace. Tokyo, Japan

Shanghai, China:

At night, Pudong casts a golden glow upon the river.

Pedestrians in the city Bund and the opposite Oriental Pearl TV Tower in the Pudong New Area, Shanghai

Queer historical buildings, broad street along the river

Beijing, China:

Seoul, Korea:

Osaka, Japan:

Guangzhou, China

Sun Yat-sen's famous spirit "The Whole World as a Community" penetrates each visitor's heart.

Night on the Zhujiang River.

Western style buildings in Guangzhou

Hainan Island, China

Enjoy the sea under mushroonlike summerhouse on the beach, Sanya

Sheraton Sanya Resort in Asian Dragon Bay (Yalong Wan), Sanya.

The Asian Dragon Bay, with blue sea, azure sky and verdant trees, is called 'natural outdoor bathing place'.

Guilin, China:

Mist wreathed over the landscape, Li River, Guilin

The skillful use of lighting shows the limestone formations to their best advantage. Here the reflections of the stalagmites in the still water of the underground lake resemble the waterfront of a modern city.

The morning mist and the reflections in the still waters of the river give the scene an ethereal  atmosphere that has inspired both poets and artists over the centuries.

Harbin, China:

Annual Ice Lantern and Snow Sculpture Exhibition in Zhaolin Park

The St.Sophia Orthodox Church, among many Orthodox churches in Harbin,is the most impressive and imposing with its typical Byzantinesque structure.

"Ice Sacred Way"

Xian, China:

Steps show the grandeur of Emperor Huangdi!

Being the biggest square in Asia, this squre possesses the biggest music fountain in the world, surrounded by architecture imitations of Tang Dynasty(618 - 907).

The Terra Cotta Warriors and Horses are the most significant archeological excavations of the 20th century.

These are nice pictures.. I really would like to visit either China or Japan some day, yet I think with me knowing almost none of these languages, it would be hard for me to do so.But perhaps I will meet a native chinese or japanese man and become friends, then we can visit the country and he could show me around and translate

     China is unreal, man. Guilin looks very mystical, and Hainan is beautiful. All the cities look amazing, too.

Acturally, I have some better pictures about Guilin. If you want I can post some. ps: I am a photographer and tourism marketing manager. lol. I'd love you talk about this    . If you come to China, personally I don't suggest you go to Herlbin. There is dangerous.

Where is Herlbin? Or are you talking about Harbin? I heard it's beautiful. It's nicknamed "Oriental Moscow", isn't it?

yes, it's Harbin. There is beautiful indeed. I highly suggest you go to Dun Huang, ػ in Chinese.  A arts and oriental religion museum, on the Silk Road.
