India, Far East & Australasia / China

Beyond its famed cuisine, China serves up a feast for the senses, rich in imperial history. Sometimes inscrutable, always incomparable, China provides an unexpected world for today’s traveller. The pleasure lies in experiencing its many contrasts – a fascinating blend of the ancient, imperial, rural and modern. Rent a rickshaw to discover the teeming hutongs of ancient Beijing, and enjoy special viewing access to the incredible Terracotta Warriors of Xian. A day of trekking along the Great Wall, especially its more remote stretches, will build up an appetite. Savour the endless streams of dim sum which will delight even the more adventurous palate. In Shanghai on the Yangtze estuary the Jade Buddha Temple and Yuyuan Garden reside in a city reaching skywards at an incredible pace. Amidst the foothills of the vast central Tibetan plateau is Shangri-La, an isolated mountain paradise of undiluted beauty where young monks sell religious charms outside Buddhist temples and the imposing Jade Dragon Snow Mountain dominates the horizon.
