The advent of high-speed rail in China has opened up a lost world of Chinese villages that have remained largely unchanged for generations. Ancient China: Towns introduces 143 historic Chinese river towns, mountain towns, fortress towns and border towns. The architecture of ancient Chinese towns includes public buildings like ancestral temples, colleges, opera towers, guild halls and bridges.
These titles contain a wealth of information about Chinese history, culture and architecture and are intended as much for the armchair traveller as for those actually making journeys.
