China is the only great civilisation from the ancient world to have survived to the present day. Its culture and economy are both thriving, and its population is over 1.3 billion!
So, where do you even start? We can send you to the major cities like Bejing and Shanghai. We can also send you to some of the least visited parts of China, like the semi-mythical Shangri-La. You could also consider an epic trek along the Great Wall, and see the iconic Terracotta Warriors.

China is a wonderful country, with a rich heritage and totally unique culture. Your trip is likely to start in the capital city, Beijing. Here you will find a booming metropolis, so prepare yourself for the busy streets! Home to many iconic sites, including the famous bird’s nest stadium which housed the Beijing 2008 Olympics.
In China, you’ll find the new intertwined with the old. Visit the Gulou, the famous drum tower which originally served for musical purposes; it was then used as a timepiece time during the Ming period, drumming without fail every hour. Head to the Zhonglou, the bell tower just opposite the drum tower. Both will give you a glimpse of old world Beijing.
The next place on your trip should be Xi’an, where you can see the famous terracotta warriors.
Last but definitely not least is Shanghai. Its modern and vibrant atmosphere will end your trip on the highest of highs. Known for its luxury hotels offering impeccable service, you will see evidence of China’s vast economic growth wherever you look.
What Everyone Does In China
Beijing is always the best place to start. Head to the Fordibben City where you’ll see China’s largest collection of preserved ancient buildings. History is very important in Chinese culture; hardly surprising considering their civilisation is 4000 years old.
What Some People Do In China
Take a trip to Hong Kong, a former British colony and autonomous region. You’ll see a recognisably Chinese culture but with greater freedoms. Not to mention vast wealth.
What No One Does In China
Head to Inner Mongolia and see the famous site of Xanadu, the pleasure palace built by Kubla Khan where Aleph the Sacred River ran. See if you can separate the facts from the myths.
