CHINA Escorted Tours

Thousands of years of history have blessed China with a rich culture plus a wealth of magnificent landmarks, making it an essential country for the discerning traveller. On an escorted tour to China, you are offered the chance to discover this mesmerising, mysterious land, which was closed to foreign visitors right up until the early 1980s.

Beijing is often the starting point for China holidays, thanks to attractions such as the imposing Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square and the elegant pavilions of the Summer Palace. Not far from the capital are some of the most impressive sections of the Great Wall - photos simply don't do it justice.

Another must-see on China tours is the Terracotta Army at Xian, created by an emperor to watch over his tomb for eternity. The 9,000 figures he left behind include soldiers, cavalry and chariot drivers, each man standing up to 6 ft 5 in tall and with a unique face.

Visit any of China's skyscraper-lined cities and you'll see why the country is fast emerging as the world's new superpower. The vibrancy and colour of everyday life is truly remarkable, from the hustle and bustle of the street markets to the group Tai Chi exercises in every public park.

Travel beyond the cities on your China holidays and you'll see the rice fields that feed this nation of more than a billion people plus a uniquely beautiful countryside. One of the country's enduring artistic images is of rivers winding around steep, misty mountains, and a cruise along the Yangtze is the perfect way to discover this timeless vision of China.
