  • Taklimakan Desert
  • North China Plain
  • The Taklimakan Desert is very dangerous, strong winds shift sand dunes and create powerful storms. Vegetation is also scarce, it only grows along rivers and oases. The name means once you go in you will not come out. Legend says two armies and 300 cities are buried 600 feet below the surface.

  • Gobi Desert
  • Chang Jiang Basin
  • The Gobi Desert is covered with small pebbles and particles of sand, there are very few sand dunes. Plants here are very small and widely spread apart.

  • The Northeastern plain is usually cold and dry, but there are short, warm summers. The climate is too cold to grow crops but the prairie grass is good food for raising livestock. The rivers in this plain are used as roads to transport goods. Invaders used this river to invade Inner China.
  • Northeastern Plain
  • 216
  • The North China Plain is sometimes called the "Land of the Yellow Earth" because the ground here is covered with yellow silt from the Gobi desert. The Huang He flows through this region of land causing floods and disasters. The soil here is very fertile from the Huang He floodings.

  • The Chang Jiang Basin has many tributaries and rivers making its soil very fertile. The climate here is very warm and moist, just right for growing rice, but not crops. The vegetation here is a thick forest but there are not enough grazing areas to raise livestock.
