China is the largest country in Asia and with 1.4 million people the most populous country on earth. It can look back on a history of over 5000 years. Thus, it is one of the oldest civilizations in the world. Everywhere in the Middle Kingdom, as it used to be called, there is evidence of this ancient culture. Since its opening 30 years ago, China has developed at a breathtaking pace into a modern economy characterized by services and technology.
In this process, huge megacities with more than 10 million inhabitants have emerged. The largest of these cities are Shanghai, the capital Beijing, and Hong Kong, the latter of which was able to maintain a special status with a high degree of internal autonomy after it was handed over to China by the British. Food in China is traditionally taken with chopsticks. The cuisine is as diverse as China’s population structure. The total population is made up of 65 ethnic groups, of which the Hang Chinese are the largest group with over 90 percent.
