different ideas to the country, such as clothes and food.
• Clothes that are brought are sort of like what come to Beijing like
Gap, Aroepostle, and Abercrombie. Food brought like McDonalds
and KFC .
• Yet most of Tibet is still true to it’s cultural heritage, which is a good
thing hopefully it will stay like this, to keep it unique.

The Southeast Coast
The southeast coast of Jiangxi, Fujian, and Hainan’s main characteristics can
be described in 3 words: rainy, warm, and, humid. Because of this, the region
is successfully agricultural. It is also plentiful in aquaculture because of its
location near the ocean. These are the characteristics that help the Southeast
Coast economically as well as create the people’s everyday life.

The Loess Plateau
The loess region is the wind-blow alluvium, is rich in
calcium and thus fertile. But the soil does not absorb
the water, causing a lack of irrigation. Two of the major
resources are oil and silk. Not a rich region for food
production and poor in economy trading.

There are many legal and
illegal coal mines in Shanxi
These mines damage the
environment, ecosystems and
illegal mines are often unsafe,
causing deaths of miners
Shanxi burns coal which
causes great pollution in
some cities such as Linfen
The pollution is concentrated
that clothes hung outside will
turn black before drying.
The amount of coal produced
and burnt in Shanxi is
expected to rise annually.
Mines are expected to
become safer and the wages

Coal accounts for 70% of

Shanxi is China’s greatest
producer of coal. The coal
sent to Shijiazhuang,
Beijing, Shanghai, and
Henan and other parts of
China
This helps with energy
shortages in those places.
Also, Shanxi will develop a
stronger economy due to
the income from selling the
coal.

The North China Plain
The North China Plain is in the north of China, and is a major agricultural
region. It is a relatively flat, and has many lakes and rivers that create
marshes and shallow swamps, sometimes causing floods. This region
also has extreme weather conditions during the winter and summer. The
North China Plain is considered to be one of the cradles of Chinese
civilization, and China’s earliest dynasties and agricultural societies are
there. Even today, the North China Plain is still a land of agriculture.
Wheat, cotton, and tobacco are some of the main crops grown there.

Xinjiang Region
Xinjiang is unified with its physical
characteristic. There are a lot of
mountains in Xinjiang. The
elevation level is relatively high in
all of Xinjiang. There are also lots
of deserts as well. This is what
unifies Xinjiang as one region.
Most of the area is covered by
the Tarim Basin, which is mostly
of the Taklimakan desert. Some of
the high mountains of Xinjiang
would be: Tianshan, Karakorum,
and Kunlun.

Increasing use of water and forest resources

Endangered animals (e.g. snow leopards,

Main exports: Fruits (mostly grapes), jade, gemstones, silk (carpets)
Many natural resources exported including beryllium, muscovite, iron,
petroleum, and natural gas are sent to other countries or other cities of
China.
Many ideas come into Xinjiang. Many restaurants, including American fast
food places such as KFC and many Beijing restaurants come into Xinjiang.
Fashion ideas also come to Xinjiang. There are a lot of foreign clothing
stores in Xinjiang.
Those ideas probably come when foreigners arrive and tell people about
their ideas. And also people from Xinjiang might travel, and come back
with those ideas.
There aren’t much ideas other places take from Xinjiang.
