Welcome to China

China is an immense country: a thousand experiences waiting to happen. This is a country of strong traditional culture mixed with ultra modern lifestyle that will never cease to amaze the visitor. The grand scale of this unique blend of old and new is never more evident than in China. From the Forbidden City’s 9,999 rooms, the length of the Great Wall and thousands of Terracotta Warriors to the mass of modern sky scrapers of Hong Kong and Shanghai. From the forbidding deserts of the far west to the lush green landscapes of Yangshuo, whether you are cruising the Yangtse or hiking the Great Wall, China encompasses a multitude of landscapes.
