Participants from more than 80 universities and overseas institutes sent over 670 essays to compete. The selected essays are compiled into a book commemorating the contest, My Beautiful Encounter with China.
Here are excerpts from the article:
Speaking the beauty of China, the first kind is its external beauty. In recent decades, China has undergone enormous changes and has become a fascinating modern country with continuous development. Thanks to the reform and the joint efforts of people, China now has many highly-modernized cities, excellent transport infrastructures, good social order and the beautiful, symmetric environment. Although they say��There is no scenery in a familiar place��, I am still mesmerized by the beauty of the eye-pleasing scenery in Guazhu lake in Shaoxing, the picturesque West Lake in Hangzhou and the overwhelming cherry blossoms of our university. Then there is also the world-famous high-speed railway, both comfortable and safe, at which the world marvels and whose technology the world wants to learn. Owing to the high-speed railway, I can return to my ��hometown�� (Shaoxing) within 19 minutes and spend some quality time with my family.
