The Great Wall of China. Started in the 7th century BC as a deterrent to incoming hordes, it is now one of the most awe-inspiring reasons that 21st century visitors find China irresistible.
Forget any other fortifications you may have visited in the past, the Great Wall of China is the most astounding chain of castles to be found anywhere on Earth.
Talk to Robert Kent and Daniel Mills – our China specialists – and they will tailor-make a holiday itinerary that will include a walk along the wall. But Neil will also use his personal experience to take you further into China than you’d dreamed possible.
The Forbidden City will open its doors to you. You will be able to explore the Temple of Heaven and the Summer Palace and – in Xi’an - introduce yourself to an army of terracotta warriors.
China is a vast cauldron of possibilities. You can journey from the colonial French architecture and modern glass towers of Shanghai, for example, to the ineffable rural beauty of Yunnan Province, far from the usual tourist trail.
Your luxury holiday to China could include watching the Yangtze cascade through the awesome Tiger Leaping Gorge, photographing the towering limestone peaks of Guilin and Yangshou or – on a family holiday - introducing your children to a less-than-inscrutable superpower.
