Just some of the Highlights of a Trip to China
★ BEIJING – THE GREAT WALL
Perhaps China’s most famous site and included in all our Beijing itineraries. Takes a day trip from Beijing to reach the best spots.
★ XIAN’S TERRA COTTA WARRIORS
another one of China’s top attractions. The ranks of the warriors are impressive although Xian has many other sites to see as well.
★ BULLET TRAINS
An increasingly used alternative not just to overnight trains but also flights with travel times often being comparable to flying factoring all in.
★ SHANGHAI’S SKYLINE
China’s brash financial centre has an increasingly impressive skyline that is starting to give Hong Kong a run for its money in more ways than one.
★ BEIJING’S FORBIDDEN CITY
Another must see in Beijing is the vast former home of several Dynasties, the Forbidden City located right in the centre of the city.
★ YANGSHUO’S SCENERY
The area around Guilin and the more pleasant Yangshuo has some of China’s most iconic scenery providing nice balance to the cities.
★ CHENGDU’S GIANT PANDAS
For many a trip to see the Giant Pandas in Chengdu is reason enough on its own to come to China. It is also possible to be a volunteer keeper for a day.
★ CRUISE THE YANGTZE RIVER
The mighty Yangtze can be cruised with trips starting at 3 nights up to 7 nights making it one of China’s most popular attractions.
★ TIBET’S POTALA PALACE
Lhasa is home to one of China’s most extraordinary buildings, the Potala Palace. Tibet makes for a fitting and adventurous addition to any trip.
★ EVEREST BASE CAMP IN TIBET
The best and most easily accessible views of Everest are from the Tibetan Base Camp which is best visited as part of a Lhasa to Kathmandu tour.
★ ANCIENT CITY OF PINGYAO
Off the beaten track but actually quite easy to fit in between Beijing and Xian, Pingyao is atmospheric of a much older China and well worth a visit.
★ HANGZHOU’S WEST LAKE
Just one hour from Shanghai by bullet train, the gardens and temples of Hangzhou’s West Lake are a superb place to learn about Chinese culture.
★ SUNRISE ON MT HUANGSHAN
The stunning yellow mountain offers up spectacular scenery and a famous sunrise for those with a good head for heights.
★ HONG KONG’S HARBOUR
This ex-British colony still feels distinct from the rest of China and with it’s nightlife, shopping and ease of travel makes for a great end to a Trans-Siberian trip.
