Remember when Lady Gaga sang, “I’m on the edge”? Well, she wasn’t singing it from the outer edge of China, but she very well could have been – it’s huge. The country’s entire outline spans a whopping 22,000 kilometers, bordering a total of 14 neighboring states including India, Afghanistan, Russia, Vietnam, Laos, Nepal and more.
This month’s cover story takes us exactly there: the borderlands of China.

Pick up a copy to get a look into what life is like on the line.
