About China

China cradles a fascinating dynastic history in one palm and a rocking, modern nightlife in the other. It's both present and retrospective as nowhere else will you find the confusing fusion of traditional tea houses dwarfed by manmade glass skyscrapers. The Great Wall is a must for the workout, the view and the rich legacy alone. Between the Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square and the glorious Yangshuo Kast Mountains, China delivers every time.
