“A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step”.
Lao Tzu – Chinese pholoserpher
There are many reasons why over sixty two million worldwide choose to visit China every year. Most would say it was the opportunity to embrace the culture of a five thousand year old civilisation and explore some of the worlds greatest archaeological sites that attracted them to visit this vast and diverse country. Others would claim Tibets Mount Everest or Hong Kong’s financial and shopping region was their draw.
If it’s not ascending the worlds highest mountain peak that attracts you, then it’s surely walking the Great Wall, visiting the Forbidden City’s Chinese Imperial Palace and inspecting the Qin Tomb Terracotta Warriors that satisfies your wish list.
Touring China’s Golden Triangle of Beijing, Xi’an and Shanghai would cover all of these attractions and much, much more. Add a Yangtze River cruise or a close encounter with a Panda to your vacation and it will surely be a trip of a life time.
