China Bucket List Travel Ideas

  • Temple of Heaven in Beijing

Why is China considered a top bucket list destination?

With one of the longest-existing civilizations on earth, China has a rich history and deep culture that attracts millions of travellers every year. It offers a huge range of experiences for every type of traveller which makes it a leading bucket list destination. It also boasts an impressive 55 UNESCO World Heritage sites - ranking as  one of the top in the world.

What are the top bucket list activities on a China vacation?

When people think of iconic travel experiences in China, walking on the Great Wall most certainly tops that list. Equally, no trip to China would be complete without a cruise on the iconic Yangtze River. For those looking for an equally beautiful cruise could consider the Li River in Guilin. Animal lovers should not miss a visit to Chengdu where visits to the Giant Panda Breeding Center and other reputable sanctuaries are a major highlight.
