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.
