A country of contrasts and contradictions, China is as sprawling in size as it is in diversity. Here you'll find futuristic cityscapes studded with skyscrapers, layer upon layer of temple-adorned mountains and a coastline that seems to stretch on forever - not to mention the world-famous Great Wall that's so expansive it can be seen from space. This intricate blend of antiquity and modernity makes China one of the most fascinating places to visit right now.
Whether you’re a city dweller or outdoor adventurer, China’s endless camera reel of landscapes is forever changing, extending the country’s appeal to just about anyone. Explore emerald forests, swoon over temples and rice terraces, kick back on blissful beaches and get sucked into the vigour and vitality of city life; the possibilities here are truly limitless.
China is one of the four ancient civilisations, the others are Babylonian, Mayan and Egyptian. It also has the largest population in the world, comprising of 56 ethnic groups, each with their own distinct culture. China also has the only surviving pictographic writing system. This seems to have learnt it the accolade of the world’s most difficult to learn first language.
