Home to both ancient villages and modern cities, China is a country of rapid change. In no other country do the ancient and the modern, the tranquil and the hurried provide such a contrasting experience.
Explore China’s ancient past with visits to the Terracotta Warriors in Xi'an, The water villages near Suzhou, the Great Wall of China, the Temple of Heaven, the Forbidden City, and the hutong neighborhoods in Beijing. Step out of the past and into China’s modern cities as you watch an acrobat show in Shanghai; enjoy a Peking duck dinner in Beijing. The scenery of a Three Gorges Yangtze River cruise, the Himalaya Mountains, and the awe inspiring Li Mountains is worth experiencing as well.
When to Travel
Travel to China is possible year round; however, the best times are in the Spring (March to May) and Fall (September to early November). Summer can be very hot especially in northern and central China, and winter tends to bring bitter cold temperatures to the north.
