China Tours, Vacations and Experiences
China, known as the Middle Kingdom by the ancient Chinese as the centre of the universe, is the 3rd largest country in the world. It is surrounded by 14 other nations and has 5 different time zones.
A visit to China offers the opportunity to view the development and progress of this country with its modern skyscrapers and contemporary designs but at the same time, it is also the world’s oldest continuous civilization and this can be seen everywhere you travel.
A short list of must sees - and this is a very short list – are Beijing, the capital with the Great Wall of China and the Imperial Palace also known as the Forbidden City, Shanghai, a city for the future but retaining its contrasting old neighbourhoods, Xian, China’s oldest city with the renowned. life-size Terra Cotta Warriors, Guilin with its unique mountain and river scenery, Lhasa, Tibet with the majestic Potala Palace overlooking the city, Suzhou, also known as the Venice of the East with its network of canals, silk industry and ornamental gardens and Kunming with its myriad of ethnic minorities.
Want to get off the beaten track? Consider a trip along the Silk Road of China stopping at the same places Marco Polo did many centuries ago. Want to go cruising while experiencing beautiful scenery? Consider a Yangtze River cruise.
And let’s not forget the various wide ranging food styles in China such as Shanghainese or Szechuan cuisines.
Two neighbours of China are Hong Kong and Macau. Both make for the perfect extension after visiting China. Honk Kong’s wonderful geographical coastal setting with its busy but scenic harbour dominated by Victoria Peak on Hong Kong Island is just one of the many attractions here. Macau, a short ferry ride away from Hong Kong still retains its Portuguese heritage in its interesting architecture and cuisine.
