China offers diverse landscapes, history, culture and will become an unforgettable experience for any traveller. If you’re seeking an adventure, a shopping holiday and exotic food, then place China at the top of your list. Here are a few highlights…
The Forbidden City, or Palace Museum
The Forbidden City (Imperial Palace) sits in the heart of Beijing and is the largest and most complete ancient building in the world.
The Great Wall – Amazing
The Great Wall winds its way across China covering over 5,500 miles (8,850 km). While the latest construction occurred after 1368 during the Ming Dynasty, construction of the Great Wall began over 2,000 years ago. Its winding path over rugged country and steep mountains takes in some great scenery. It deserves its place among “the New Seven Wonders of the World”
Terracotta Warriors – Unbelievable
A terracotta army, buried in 210 BC with the first emporer of the Qin dynasty, is a breathtaking site. The thousands of life-size figures have individually unique faces, hair and armor styles appropriate to their rank.
Karst Mountain Terrain in Yangshuo
Their beauty and imposing structures make this an almost spiritual place to visit and experience. Today, thousands of people visit the site each year and are attracting thousands more as the news of its beauty is being spread all over the world.
Jiuzhaigou Valley is a nature reserve located in China’s Sichuan province. A beautiful example of China’s varied landscape, Jiuzhaigou is famous for crystal blue lakes and multi-level waterfalls. It is populated by a number of Tibetan villages so is also a superb place to see and experience Tibetan local culture.
