Kuoni Insider

On every trip to China I'm struck by ferocious contrasts – from the imperial architecture of Beijing to the lofty skylines of Shanghai; the dramatic mountain tops of Yunnan to the deep gorges of the Yangtze River. And no matter how many times I visit, the spellbinding Great Wall of China never fails to impress.
