Nothing can really prepare you for travelling through majestic China. As if set in two separate worlds, one half lies in an ancient kingdom, while the other half is pushing forward at an electrifying pace, creating massive metropolises a longside the colonial past. China is a vast nation, with well over a billion people, providing many cultures, languages and cuisines.
Its varied landscape encompasses grasslands, desert, mountains, lakes, rivers and thousands of miles of coastline. The capital Beijing, mixes modern architecture with historic sites, such as, the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square. Shanghai, located to the south, is the skyscraper-global financial centre whilst the iconic Great Wall runs from east to west across the north of the country. This great nation certainly requires more than one visit, as there is simply so much to see and do.
