China is a land of contrasts; a land where the ancient world meanders through a modern one with high tech bustling cities towering above time-forgotten rural villages. Its rich history and ancient customs still influence daily life and its diverse beauty keeps visitors returning time and time again.
    The ancient city of Beijing, home to Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City, the largest imperial palace in the world, is a must for first time visitors. Whilst a visit to Xi’an, with its rich collection of relics and historical sites including the Terracotta Army and the Big Wild Goose Pagoda – one of China’s most famous Buddhist pagodas, should not be missed.
