China has many advantages to its geography. It also has many disadvantages. China was isolated by the Himalaya mountains, Gobi desert, and The seas. This can be a disadvantage, because China couldn't trade for new resources for its neighbors. This was also an advantage, because China developed their own culture.

China relied on the Yellow (Huang) River to provide rich fertile soil for the Chinese rice plantations. The people didn't know this. All they knew was that the Yellow river was claiming more lives every year. They built walls called dikes around the river. This helped for a bit, but the soil kept piling up at the bottom of the river. The Huang over-flowed, and the yearly floods began again.
