Travelers welcome! This time we will move to the other side of the ocean to discover an Asian wonder: China.
The PRC is the world’s fourth largest country and most populous continent, with a figure of around 1,339,724,852 people! Although its capital is Beijing, the city with most residents is Shanghai. This vast region is divided into 22 provinces, so the great variety of Chinese Mandarin dialects makes one of the most difficult languages to reproduce.
