For many, travel to China is the fulfillment of a dream. To explore the Forbidden City, home to Chinese emperors over the centuries, to gaze in awe at an entire army of Terracotta Warriors and to walk proudly on a Great Wall that stretches for over 4,000 miles. And yet these famous sights are only the first steps in discovering this fascinating land. A land of beauty with its poetic landscapes around Guilin, dramatic gorges along the Yangtze and striking mountain scenery in Nine Villages Valley.
For the more adventurous, there is the opportunity to travel along the ancient Silk Road or venture overland into mystical Tibet. Not forgetting everyone’s favourite, of course, the Panda’s!! Yet beyond these great wonders, the most enduring memory is often the charm of the Chinese themselves.
