Whilst in Shanghai get up early and watch the silent agile movements of the Shanghainese as they practise the ancient art of Tai Chi. Then head over to the Yu Garden Bazaar for a delicious breakfast of steamed dumplings – try the delicious Nanxiang dumplings stuffed with pork and dipped into vinegar and ginger.

Our China holidays showcase an ancient and modern clash, from the powerhouse that is Shanghai to spiritual Lhasa. Beijing is a must with the exquisite Forbidden City and mighty Tiananmen Square at its heart. Futuristic Shanghai skyline looks down on gems of gardens and European architecture on the waterfront Bund and competes with the high-rises of Hong Kong clustered around its stunning harbour.

Discover our timeless China holidays with the limestone islets of Guilin, ancient streets in Yangshou and the heavenly gardens of Suzhou. To be truly inspired walk a section of the mind-boggling Great Wall and wonder at the skill of the artisans who crafted Xian's Terracotta Army. For nature at its best sail through the stunning Yangtze Gorges and admire the handiwork of man as you pass the formidable Yangtze dam.

China holidays reveal a land of diversity; in the west discover the ancient oasis towns along the Silk Road with their colourful markets, the everlasting wildness of the Tibetan plateau and its monasteries once again populated by monks, the rugged mountains and ethnic minorities of Yunnan Province and the iconic panda in Szechuan Province. And that is only the beginning...

For thousands of years China has kept to itself, and foreigners still find it difficult to penetrate the inner depths of this fascinating and enigmatic nation. Since the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing showcased some of its most spectacular attractions however, there has been a major increase in travellers wanting to explore the exotic destination. There is a great deal to discover in this, the world's most populated country, the third largest in the world territorially with more than 1.3 billion citizens.
 
What makes China Holidays so unique for Western tourists is the chance to experience fascinating culture and valuable antiquities. Ruins and relics from Neolithic settlements and the dynastic reigns of the mighty emperors are there to behold, along with adventures along the legendary ancient trade routes, such as the Silk Road. The Forbidden Palace, Great Wall of China, and Terracotta Army of X'ian are just some of the incredible attractions to be seen in this ancient Eastern empire.
