History and culture on a dazzling scale

On a China holiday, experience the way world-renowned history, stunning natural beauty and thoroughly modern cities co-exist.

From the snowy peaks on the Tibetan border to the humid metropolis of Hong Kong, it’s fair to say that China has a lot going for it. That means that a China holiday can be exactly what you want it to be.

You could explore China’s fascinating history with a walk along the Great Wall or come face to face with an ancient army in terracotta form. You could immerse yourself in world-leading restaurants among the skyscrapers of China’s great cities, Hong Kong, Shanghai and Beijing. Or you could find tranquillity in the mountains, rivers and tea plantations of rural China.
