Introduction - Discover China

Discover China is a comprehensive showcase of a fascinating country whose scenic beauty vies with its rich culture and heritage. Start off in Beijing to walk on the Great Wall of China; visit the Hutongs and the iconic Tian An Men Square. Journey, by express train, to Xian, whose stupendous Terracotta Warriors and Museum of Horses promise to leave you awestruck. Take a picture with the endearing Giant Pandas in Chengdu before travelling onward to see the World Heritage town of Lijiang, home to the ethnic Naxi people.

Stop in Guilin, a city situated in the northeast of Guangxi prefecture, a region known for its unique Karst. Take a cruise down the Li River to Yangshuo. Tour the Moon Hill and visit the historical Xinping fishing village to see expert cormorant fishermen at work afloat bamboo rafts. Enjoy the scenic mountainous road to Longji, a rural town surrounded by terraced rice fields. The vibrant commercial city of Shanghai is the last stop before you travel back home.
