Varying dynasties, powerful emperors and 21st-century communism have collectively made China the prosperous nation that it is today. As the fourth largest country in the world, China has so much to offer that it would be impossible to see it all in one journey. Luckily, there are plenty of options available across this vast nation which can provide an unforgettable experience.
For first-time visitors, we can provide a ‘Best of China’ tour, taking you to China’s capital, Beijing. Here, you will be able to experience landmarks such as Tiananmen Square, the Forbidden City, and the Great Wall of China before embarking on a luxurious river cruise along the Yangtze. From here, you will visit the Three Gorges Dam, the world’s largest engineering project, admire pandas in Chongqing Zoo, witness the famous terracotta army in Xi’an, and wander among the towering skyscrapers of Shanghai.
More adventurous travellers may want to embark on an adventure holiday, and there are plenty of rewarding journeys available. You can trek the Great Wall of China, allowing you to admire rural life whilst passing through the watchtowers that connect this magnificent historic landmark.
Alternatively, you travel outside of the hustle and bustle of China’s cities and experience the lush green countryside on offer. Regions such as Guilin and Yangshuo are home to idyllic forested mountains and limestone cliffs. No journey to this part of China would be complete without witnessing the stunning golden sunset across the horizon.
China is one of the fastest growing cruise regions in the world at the moment, with many operators building ships specifically for the market. These are then stationed in places such as Tianjin, Shanghai and Xiamen. These ports, along with cities such as Haikou, Guangzhou and Dalian, are also popular with other cruise ships visiting the area.
