As one of the world's largest countries and the most populous, there is so much to discover and explore in China.
Understanding the history of China is key to understanding modern China. The people are proud of its past, and keen to share its heritage with the world. In a country that defies superlatives, the words 'vast', 'astonishing' and 'variation' don't really seem to cover it - China really does have it all!
From the phenomenal karst rock formations and mountains of the south, the vast deserts of the west, the high plateau and towering mountains of Tibet, and the incredible rolling landscapes of the east, China contains some of the most stunning and varied scenery to be found in all of Asia. The entire country is teeming with beautifully-chaotic modern cities juxtaposed with thousands of years of fascinating history and heritage. Throughout the country, China's unique culture, music, architecture, history, cuisine and society shines through, and we immerse ourselves in it through every journey through it.
Beijing is the hub of political and international focus - it is truly a magnificent modern city merged with the ancient heritage and architecture of the past, such as its celebrated sites of the Forbidden Palace and the Summer Temple.
China has endless highlights such as the world-famous Terracotta Warriors in Xi'an, the incredible scenery of the Tian Shan mountains near Kashgar, the Buddhist caves of Dunhuang, Dazu and Datong, the incredible holy mountain temples of Wudang Shan, Wutai Shan, Kongtong and Emei Shan, the stunning traditional towns of Pingyao, Lijiang and Dali, and of course the phenomenal Great Wall of China, one of the world's great sights!
