A while back all of us were surprised to see a report selecting a potential nomination from Hong Kong. The time may have already passed, so it may never be put forward. However, I did make a visit and it was beautiful to say the least, though I doubt it could ever prove OUV on its recent origin!

Chi Lin Nunnery and Nan Lian Garden (Hong Kong)

I had not known much about China's 2 nominations this year. But all is revealed once the WHC session starts.

Shennongjia Nature Reserve (or Hubei Shennongjia) is quite an old nomination. Rejected in 1980, and the current nomination was added in 1996 to China's Tentative list. When a country has 55 tentative nominations, and its still putting forth nominations from 20+ years ago, I think it speaks for itself.

Zuojiang Huashan Rock Art Cultural Landscape is very close to Nanning, which I just realized put me within an hour or two drive from all 3 serial sites of this nomination! Another close call, since I was in the Nanning and Guilin area for about 10 days in 2006, almost exactly 10 years ago! Since this rock art nomination only came into existence in 2008, perhaps my ignorance is to be expected. The challenges of a WH traveller! In hindsight I should have been more ambitious while I was in Guangxi province, but I was tired from 2 weeks of traveling that covered Beijing, Qufu, and Xi'an!

Italy 51
China 50


2017
Gulangyu (China) Inscribe
Qinghai Hoh Xil (China)
Venetian Works of Defense (Italy) Inscribe
Silla National Park (Italy) Not Inscribe
Primeval Beech Forests [Extension] (Italy)

Based on recent reports, there is definitely an awareness in Chinese media of the possibility of China becoming the leader/co-leader of the most world heritage sites. Based on the ICOMOS/IUCN reports we can reliably confirm China and Italy will (at least) have 52 world heritage sites each by the end of the WHC. The possibility still remains that Italy will surpass China (by one) if the Primeval Beech Forest [Extension] is approved.

2018
Maritime Silk Road - Qunazhou (China)
Fanjingshan (China)
The Prosecco Hills of Conegliano and Valdobbiadene (Italy)
