The spectacular scenery, ancient traditions and futuristic major cities make this a country of huge contrasts. The Great Wall or the Forbidden City in Beijing are the perfect place for experiences full of wonder.

The charm of ancient traditions

Ancient traditions coexist in China with the most futuristic modern developments. China’s extraordinary history is most apparent when visiting popular monuments such as the Great Wall, which is over 9,000 kilometres long, the Terracotta Army in Xian, or the Giant Buddha, 71 metres tall. The peace of Fenghuang, known as a city frozen in time, contrasts with the bustle of one of the business and shopping capitals of the world, Hong Kong. Ready for contrasts?
