Regardless of where you go and how long your visit is, though, one thing is for sure: going on any of the numerous China tours available will leave you breathless and coming back for more.
Chinese tradition dictates that the first imperial dynasty was flourishing by 2070BC. With a culture dating that far back in time, you already know that China is chock-full of historical sites that will make for outstanding parts of your itinerary.
From the Great Wall of China up in Beijing to the Terracotta Army in Xi’an, and the West Lake in Hangzhou all the way back to the Forbidden City in Beijing, tours in China cannot do without a look into the country’s rich and storied past. These ancient treasures, many of them World Heritage Sites, are what keep the Chinese culture alive and intact to this very day.
