China tours

Always been keen on China tours? That's understandable because travel in China ( also known as the 'Middle Kingdom' ) makes for an unforgettable experience. China is a large area with a rich cultural history and a civilization more than 4,000 years old. Present day China is also a major economy with an immense surface area and an incredible population size - the largest in the world. All this makes any journey through China hugely fascinating.

If you decide to travel to China then you will not be able to escape the remains of the ancient empire. A well-known example is the Great Wall of China, large parts of which have been preserved. Originally this defensive wall was more than 6,000 kilometers long ! However, when your group travels in China you get to see so much more than the Great Wall. Do not miss the old walled city of Pingyao. This well-preserved traditional Han city is recognised by UNESCO for good reason. Walk through the small alleys, past the houses decorated by red lanterns and in the background hear the ringing rickshaws.

While travelling in China you will also want to see the impressive terracotta army of Emperor Qin Shihuang. Thousands of man-sized clay soldiers stand guarding his tomb. Also the district of Wuyuan will no doubt impress you. In this area there are many small villages where life still continues as it did centuries ago. In Wuzhen and Hangzhou you will also experience ancient China, a network of waterways, narrow streets and houses full of beautiful carvings .

Our group tours to China also provide the chance to visit the Forbidden City, part of Beijing, where once the emperors lived and ruled the country. You feel a real emperor amid the magnificent palaces and gardens! The Forbidden City alone is reason enough to make the trip to Beijing but there are many more impressive historic sites to be found in this city. And what about all the local restaurants where you can of course eat Peking Duck? Beijing has, in recent decades developed into a modern metropolis with gigantic skyscrapers and huge shopping malls .

China is a country of contrasts. Take up a trip to China so as not to miss out!
You enter Beijing with all the hustle and bustle of a metropolis and in the country you find yourself in the other extreme. Here you can enjoy beautiful, rustic views during a bike ride or walk where you can see how traditional farmers cultivate their rice fields .
Travel through China is really very rewarding. Do you want to know the country of contrasts? Be welcomed by the friendly people of the Middle Kingdom on one of our China tours.
