China is a country on everyone’s lips as it rushes head first into the future. It is a nation of epic proportions, world famous cuisine, ancient wonders and has a history that dates back thousands of years.
This well-aged country retains a deep sense of traditional identity and as the old and modern worlds collide there has never been a better time to experience China’s diverse array of attractions. China will have you bumping into yin and yang at every turn – from ancient wonders such as the Great Wall, hutongs, temples, traditional water villages and the remarkable terracotta army to the dominating cutting-edge architecture, glitzy large scale malls and high-speed rail lines.
The bustling megacities of Beijing and Shanghai are quickly becoming cultural hubs but venture outside these urban centres and you can truly appreciate the contrasts this country has to offer – take a cruise along the Li River and discover the striking scenery, enjoy the creative and imaginative Harbin Ice Festival, relax and socialise in a Sichuanese teahouse, explore the mighty Yangtze River, hike the Tiger Leaping Gorge or journey across the infamous Silk Road.
The vast and varied land of China is an ideal destination, whether it’s a few days’ break or an in-depth journey of exploration. Discover amazing landscapes, cultural delights, relax luxuriously or get refreshingly active. China undoubtedly will impress.
