The early Chinese people knew there were
other tribes of people to the north. But they did not know there were
other ancient civilizations in other parts of the world. The Chinese
were isolated by their many natural barriers.
To the east and south, China borders two
seas - the China Sea and the Yellow Sea. Although these bodies of water
provided food and water routes for trade, both seas are located in the
Pacific Ocean. The Pacific Ocean is a pretty big place, and few of the
early Chinese mariners attempted to explore the Pacific in the early
days of China's development.
A huge mountain range called the Himalayan
mountains ran along China's border. China also borders two of the
world's most dangerous deserts.
You can see why China was isolated for so
many years from the rest of the ancient world!
