A powerful modern country, China has a great and proud history of strong empires.
With a recorded history of more than 5,000 years, China is one of the world’s earliest civilizations. It is also the home of some great historical monuments such as the 21,000 km-long Great Wall of China, built between the 5th century BC and 16th century BC to protect the Northern borders of the Chinese Empire from nomadic tribes.
Other places not to be missed are the Terracotta Army, Forbidden City, Summer Palace, and the Temple of Heaven. Witness the breathtaking beauty of China, when you take a cruise along the Li River. From Bamboo groves, farming villages and picturesque hills, one can understand the hidden charm.
Disneyland of Hong Kong is a dream for children in Asia, Australia and even Europe. China is also famous for traditional festivals that boast of their rich culture and history. Be a part of dragon festivals and lantern festivals when in China, cuddle a panda, or even walk on the Great Wall.
China is also a haven for souvenir collectors whether it is jade, fresh water pearls, or silk carpets. Buy some authentic, famous green tea on the way back.
