Massive throngs of tourists who are on break for the Golden Week holiday in China have been flocking to the Great Wall of China and other local hotspots since Monday.
The week-long public holiday kicked off on October 1 with 145,000 people attending a special flag-raising ceremony at Tian’anmen Square. The celebration marked the 69th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China.
A skull found in China nearly 40 years ago is giving new clues to the origin of modern humans, suggesting that we actually descended from both Asian and African ancestors.
The “Dali skull,” estimated at 260,000 years, was first found in Dali County, Shaanxi Province, in 1978. It was then thought to belong from the Homo erectus.
A 33-year-old man is being hailed as the “national husband” across Chinese-speaking countries for having an image that defies unpleasant stereotypes of local men.
