China Holidays

A LIFETIME’S SUPPLY OF CULTURE AND BEAUTY

China holidays reveal the ancient culture that is found across this vast and diverse country, from the winding Yangtze River to the snow-capped mountains, the farmers working the fields to the thronging cities.

Few places can offer travellers the variety of experiences that holidays in China do. For a start, the country is huge, with landscapes from the snow-capped peaks of Tibet to tropical Hong Kong. As diverse as the changing landscapes are, so too is the culture, history, people and cuisine as you travel from one place to the next in this vast land.

There is something here for everyone, from cruising the winding Yangtze to cycling through the rice fields in Yangshuo, discovering artefacts thousands of years old or the newest cocktail bar in trendy Shanghai.

Food- got to taste many different dishes as our group mostly ate together.

There was time in Shanghai for us to go to Shanghai Museum for 2 hours. 6 out of the group of 10 decide to go in free time. It was outstanding and should be included in itinerary I believe.
I know it was not a shopping tour but could have been given a little more time to purchase items. I know this is tricky depends on the group.
