Discover More About China

China

Today China is a bewildering blend of modern mega-cities, high-speed bullet trains, ancient monuments and traditional life. Beijing's epic Forbidden City is a stone's throw from the Great Wall, the ancient town of Pingyao and the Terracotta Warriors of Xi’an. Travel the Three Gorges on a Yangtze cruise, visit the pandas in Chengdu, explore the stunning national parks of central China or spend time experiencing the lush paddies and limestone peaks of the south. Beautiful Yunnan Province is home to charming small towns and spectacular mountain scenery or, for the more adventurous, the Silk Road can be followed as it snakes through the deserts of the west. For something completely different, Tibet has retained its sacred Buddhist traditions and remains unlike anywhere else in the country. With our knowledge and experience we can help to create a unique holiday to China that is tailored exactly to your requirements.
