Discover China multi-centres

As the world’s second largest country and its most populated nation, it comes as no surprise that China offers a vast and spectacular range of natural and cultural landscapes as well as captivating ancient traditions. Ever-growing cities, where futuristic skyscrapers brush shoulders with colonial architecture and seemingly ageless remnants, reflect the nation’s rapidly expanding economy but still hold onto that Eastern charm that is sought by the discerning traveller.

The modern and efficient Beijing Capital International Airport is located 20 miles from the centre of the city. It can be reached from the UK by a direct flight and connects well to other Chinese cities. Similarly Shanghai’s Pudong International Airport is reached by a direct flight from the UK and has frequent domestic services to other cities within the country.
