China

China must be one of the most evocative of country names, conjuring images of Beijing and the Great Wall, Xi’an with its terracotta warriors, Chengdu with its pandas, the southern regions with their strange mound shaped mountains, rivers and foggy vistas.  

We can certainly take you to see all those places, as can all other tour operators to China, but we can also offer you something different - especially if you have already seen all the usual places in China on a previous holiday, or, just want to avoid them and the tourist crowds.

Would a visit to the far west of the country with its towering green clad, cloud capped mountains, deep valleys and hidden towns and villages, where the population looks distinctly Tibetan appeal to you more?

You could end it off in the high-tech city of Shanghai and its neon lit ultra modern cityscapes.  A great formula for a holiday of contrasts, we think.

You could begin with an arrival in Beijing and then fly into Inner Mongolia on China’s western borders, with its barren sandy deserts, camels and oases. A very different image of China and its people.

You surely won’t want to miss the beguiling pandas in their Chengdu home, or the monks of the Shaolin Temple and their astonishing martial arts expertise.

Fly in and out of Hong Kong - another of China’s instantly evocative city regions. A ‘must see’ place if you have not been to this part of the world before.   

Whatever you want to do on a holiday to China we can do it for you - from short breaks to Beijing and its delights, to Xi’an and its monumental excavations, coastal Shanghai with its long European history and the mountains and rivers of Guilin, the rock carved gigantic Buddha statues in Luoyang and the desert towns and cities on the far western borders.

Just ask us and we will put together the perfect China holiday just for you
