China has long been a source of intrigue, enchanting western travellers for centuries. This curious, vast land has seen its roots firmly planted in ancient history, now tightly entwined in the fast-growing vines of modern development and rapid urbanisation. Holidays to China are, as to be expected, a two-sided coin, with visits to the ultra-modern Shanghai countered by explorations of age-old Kashar or Beijing’s Forbidden City.

Needless to say, this perfectly-blended partnership of extremes has forged a spectacular culture in a country of boundless natural beauty and varied landscapes. Such a vast country with a fascinating path through history creating varied regional cultural identities, China is incredibly rich in its diversity and offers something for every kind of traveller.

Visit the ancient oasis towns along the Silk Road with their colourful markets, come face-to-face with iconic pandas in Sichuan Province or discover the Quinghai-Tibet Plateau at the base of the Himalayas. Travellers who visit Zhongdian – more commonly known as Shangri La City and a firm favourite with Regent staff – are afforded the opportunity to watch monks worship at remote monasteries, or explore the surrounding mountains, forests and emerald lakes.

Having lived and worked in Beijing myself, it has to be one of my very favourite places. The Forbidden City and Summer Palace are incredible must-see icons, but I suggest heading to the hutongs for a taste of the real China. These haphazard neighbourhoods are filled with ancient narrow streets and alleyways, and Beijing’s frantic pace seems to have by-passed the local residents.

Stefanie's Tips
Discover timeless China with the limestone islets of Guilin, ancient streets of Yangshuo and the gardens of Suzhou.
To see one of the best-appointed sections of the Great Wall, head to Mutianyu, also home of the Ming Tombs.
Chengdu, the capital city of Sichuan province, is a great place to dine on sumptuous cuisine and experience family life.
