A land of ancient traditions, captivating landscapes and fascinating cultures.

China is a country of contrasts. Tradition and innovation sit side by side, with peaceful rice fields and monastery villages existing alongside buzzing ultramodern mega-cities. Those with a love of history or food will be in their element and whether you cruise through the karsts of Guilin, visit the giant pandas of Chengdu or shop till you drop in Shanghai, China never disappoints.

  • The food is out of this world, whether it’s Michelin starred or fresh from the market
  • The history - even in the metropolitan cities you can still feel the history of this ancient country
  • It is home to the endangered giant panda and you can visit centres to watch them play
  • You can cruise the mighty Yangtze surrounded by spectacular scenery
  • Shopping in Shanghai, a not to be missed experience

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.
