Holidays to China promise history, culture, scenic grandeur and unique wildlife spectacles that will long stay in your memory
China is a vast and varied country with innumerable rewarding sights to see. Mostly we think of the pulsing cities of Shanghai, Hong Kong and Beijing. Such cutting-edge places are undoubtedly fascinating to visit, but beneath all that glitz the old way of life still continues.
Beyond the great metropolises of Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong, other must-see’s in China include imperial Chengde, the huge Buddhist sculptures in the cave temples at Datong and the enchanting Bai town of Dali. Then there’s dramatic Tiger Leaping Gorge, the karst landscape and cormorant fishing of Guilin & Yangshuo, the panda research centre in Chengdu, and Chongqing – where cruises begin their scenic route down the Yangtze.
