Mainland China? Humm... I'm afraid the topic is a bit... broad. You may probably need to collect information about Chinese culture, news, politics(Ah, forbidden by the Chinese Government), and so on. It's would be tiring if you do it alone. Just narrow the topic, for instance, Chinese Kungfu, I suppose it would be better.

Who is your ideal visitor?
If the site is for people in China than you may want to do the entire site in Chinese characters.

Quote:
China cracks down on media's use of English

By Bo Gu, NBC News

China has banned websites, publishers and newspapers from using “unnecessary” English words, prompting a wave of online sarcasm and criticism.

The General Administration of Press and Publication, which supervises all media in the country, said on Monday that foreign languages, in particular “English, English words and acronyms,” have diluted Chinese in recent years.

“Such abuse of language … destroys the harmonious and healthy cultural environment and causes an unhealthy social impact,” the government media watchdog said.

As a result of practices that damage the “purity of the Chinese language,” the regulator prohibited the “arbitrary” use of English words or acronyms from foreign languages mixed with Chinese. It also forbade the use of “ambiguous” words that are neither Chinese nor foreign.

When words in a foreign language have to be used, the government decreed that a note or annotation in Chinese must be added. And the names of foreign people, places and science terms also have to be translated into Chinese.

If the order was to be strictly exercised many English acronyms Chinese people often use, such as DNA, GDP, CEO and WTO, would have to disappear or be replaced by Chinese equivalents.

Sarcasm
While decrees like this one alarm few – such government notices are rarely followed – they do elicit bouts of pungent sarcasm.

In April, TV channels were told to ban English acronyms like NBA, which translated into Chinese in as long as 10 characters: “Mei Guo Nan Zi Zhi Ye Lan Qiu Lian Sai.”

One commentator responded to the ban in April with: “Ban English acronyms? Fine, don’t call yourself CCTV anymore.” CCTV, a.k.a. China Central TV, is China’s biggest official TV service and displays its logo with four English-language letters on-screen.

The most recent notice elicited similarly acerbic responses.

“I suggest we get rid of Arabic numbers too, they’re also foreign,” one person said in the comment section on news giant Netease.com.

Another said: “Dear Administration, can you tell me how to say ‘iPad,’ ‘iPhone’ in Chinese?”

Some commentators seemed to take the issue a bit more seriously: “Tell me, in modern science, which word comes from Chinese? They are nice enough to let you use their words, and now you want to protect your ‘language purity’?”

Authorities’ obsession with power is at the root of the decision to ban English, one commentator says.

“(The government) is so proud now as China’s economy is booming,” Zhu Xueqin, a history professor at Shanghai University, told BBC News in an interview. “They think foreigners ought to learn from us, we do not need to learn from them anymore.”

It isn’t only the use of English that is imperiled, Zhu said. A large number of frequently used Chinese words in science and sociology come from Japanese, such as constitution, cadre, and socialism.

“If we are not allowed to use such words we simply won’t be able to speak anymore,” he said.

NBC’s Beijing Bureau requested an interview with the General Administration of Press and Publication but received no answer.

I think it would be great if someone from outside China could make a really good Website on China from a tourism point of view. How to go about the Visa, what travel restrictions there are, the better places to visit etc.

That would be a great place to start, for both people wanting to visit China and for Chinese wanting to travel outside the country.

Get the cast of futurama to program it for you for no reason.

China is a pretty huge country so how about a site focussing on your town or region instead?
You can easily get all the details/pictures locally - places to stay, customs/festivals, interesting things for tourists, nearest airports/train stations etc, then have a few pages with more general 'Visit China' stuff with links to the visa authorities and anything else thats useful?

Only you make this website?or absorb capital?

Based on my experiences, different parts of china are very different.
I felt like in another country when I was in another province.
Just take note that China is not the same everywhere.
mengshi200
