From a cliff carved in the shape of a Buddha to a glass bridge, snaking around vertical cliffs, we reveal 6 attractions to check out in China.
1. Leshan Giant Buddha
Seventy-one metres: that’s how tall the Leshan Giant Buddha is. That’s about the same height as the tallest tip of the Sydney Opera House. It’s huge, and it’s particularly impressive given this statue was carved out of a cliff face at the confluence of the Min and Dadu rivers in the Sichuan province, back in the year 713. To this day, the giant Buddha is an important tourist attraction and a stunning sight.
