Melbourne is a multicultural city but one nationality is fast dominating the landscape.

According to a CNN report on the "millionaire visa":
(http://edition.cnn.com/2014/02/04/world/asia/australia-china-immigration/)
  • Chinese are the biggest group to apply for Australia's 'millionaire visa'
  • High wealth individuals must invest $A5 million in Australia to get a visa
  • Those investing for more than four years are eligible for permanent residency
  • Chinese are the third largest immigrant group in Australia after the UK and NZ
The 2001 Australian Census list Chinese in Australia as coming from (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chinese_Australian)
Country/Region Population Country/Region Population
Mainland China 132,020 East Timor 4,880
Hong Kong 59,810 Philippines 2,230
Malaysia 51,910 Thailand 2,210
Vietnam 41,230 Laos 1,450
Taiwan 21,520 Burma 1,030
Indonesia 19,620 Mauritius 820
Singapore 19,120 South Korea 190
Cambodia 9,500 Ghana 110

The Chinese have never shy away from emigration ever since the gold rush days.
They can be found from New York, USA to Johannesburg, South Africa.
They have not been known to accept their fate.
They're better know to take fate in their own hand and strike out a new destiny in a distance land.
Their hardwork, perseverance and survival instinct makes them adaptable from Indonesia to India.
Just like the Jews, the Chinese also have a similar disapora all over the world summarised neatly in the phrase 四海为家.

    So-called "Xinjiang"'s landscapes are extremely varied, ranging from alpine mountains (Mt. Bogoda, Tianshan etc.) clad in a mantle of firs and beeches, to grassland (Jungaria) to the deserts (GObi, Taklimakan) and oasis towns (Turpan, Kumul, Kashgar). You can get the feel of Swiss mountains, Saharan desert and Mongolian steppe.

    juzunme: Yes, fresh snow is pretty but not when it melts. Well, a thing of beauty don't last forever.
    Unfortunately time was short but I would love to travel f ...
    I have been to so-called "Xinjiang" around a dozen times. It is fascinating because it is NOT like China proper; it has less uniformity and a lot more open spaces. The less Chinese it looks, the more authentic it is. Unfortunately, Urumqi is mostly a Chinese city that looks like a replica lifted straight out of the eastern sea board.
