Tours in China
A wealth of diversity
Travel in China dates back over 5,000 years to the time of the Great Silk Road when Westerners such as Marco Polo and Gottfried Leibniz ventured in search of silk and spices to trade - such is the rich cultural heritage of China. It shares borders with over 14 separate nations most of which it has been at war with at one time or another. The most obvious in today’s China being the remnants of the Great Wall - built to keep the invading Mongols from the North out.
China is as diverse as it’s history. Across the vast countryside, you will find large variations in culture, language, customers and economic wealth. The major cities such as Beijing, Guangzhou and Shanghai are modern and comparatively wealthy. Yet, about 50% of Chinese still live very simple rural existence.
The list of things to do in China would be simply never-ending. From the incredible history and culture like the majestic Forbidden City in Beijing, to the wonderful environment such as the breathtaking scenery of Jiuzhaigou. China has the third-largest number of UNESCO World Heritage Sites, after Italy and Spain. One of the most enduring images of China is the gumdrop mountains and steeply sloping forested hills with bizarre rock formations that appear in so much Chinese art. These strangely eroded rock formations are known as Karst and are predominant in and Southern China.
