China is a huge country with an extremely long history, hence it can be difficult to decide what to do or where to go. Below is a list of the top eight not-to-be-missed activities you should take part in if you visit, or are already in, China.

Panda snow fight in Chengdu, Sichuan Province 

What is more interesting than having a snowball fight with your friends? Watching pandas play around in the snow!

When an unexpected snowfall hit Chengdu, Southwest China's Sichuan Province, at the beginning of 2018, no one was more surprised than the local resident pandas. Living in the southern part of China where the temperature is usually warm, pandas usually don't have the chance to see snow. So when this recent snow hit the region, the animals had a great time rolling in snow covered fields. Their charmingly naive behavior has attracted numerous visitors to the Chengdu Giant Panda Research Base and some of their funny actions have even become memes online. Who knows how long it will be before the snow melts, so you might want to book your trip as soon as possible.

Explore the newly opened Qixiang Gate area at the Forbidden City 

On January 1, the Palace Museum opened up the Qixiang Gate in the Forbidden City. This move opened up several areas of the imperial palace that had never before been seen by the public. This year will also be a good time to visit the Palace Museum because the regular exhibitions at the Treasure Hall and Clock Museum are going to be changed up for the first time ever, meaning some new exciting objects are sure to be put on display.

After a day-trip in the imperial palace, we recommend taking home a Chinese fu (fortune) character from the shop, it just might bring you good luck!
