With its myriad of ancient sights, cultural delights and breathtaking scenery, China is a country that should be on every bucket list. Few places manage to fuse history and modernity as seamlessly as the Middle Kingdom. Its cities tell stories of opulence and splendour, while its culinary scene is second to none. Wander the streets of Beijing, China’s iconic capital, and observe the architectural shift from the ancient to the modern in the space of 50 metres. Take a walk down the Bund in Shanghai for a glimpse of China’s colonial past, or journey to Chengdu to see the Giant Panda in its native home.
From the lush mountain ranges of central China, to the desert dunes of the north and the tropical beaches in the south, China truly does have it all.
