Far and wide, China is a giant country that’s still relatively unknown to many. With world-class museums, modern city skylines, incredible national parks and the world’s tallest mountain range there isn’t a shortage of places to visit in China. For travellers seeking adventure and wonder, China destinations offer some of the vastest and most incredible landscapes imaginable. For the culture and history buff, China proves to be a melting pot of different cultures and heritages.
No visit to this far Eastern land is complete without visiting some of the most beautiful places in China; Beijing and the Great Wall of China and the modern city of Shanghai. Other highlights include Xian, the home of the incredible Terracotta Army, Sichuan Province, the center of spicy food and pandas and Tibet.
In China you’ll have conversations with locals over hotpot, ride some of the fastest trains in the world and wander across a wall measuring over 13,000 miles. Some of the most modern experiences await in Shanghai one day and the next you’ll be meditating with monks in a centuries old Buddhist temple the next.
China is land of contrasts, where the old and the new live side by side and when the present rubs shoulders with the past. Young businessmen live in high-rise apartment blocks next to ancient Taoist temples home to monks. There’s no country quite like it.
