China

In its three millennia of existence, China has experienced its fair share of upheaval and revolution and even more than its fair share of innovation – the invention of paper, printing and the compass, to name a few, have had a massive impact on the development of the world. Today China is an ancient culture reinvented; whilst some aspects of life remain as they have for thousands of years, especially in rural areas, many aspects are being embellished by the new, with state-of-the-art modernity endemic in every town and city. Because of this the rewards of travelling through China are endless whether you come looking for ancient heritage or contemporary culture.

From the biggest, most magnificent sights on everybody’s bucket list – the Great Wall and Terracotta Warriors to name a few, to languid pandas, vibrant mega-metropolises, serene landscapes and undiscovered corners, China is as diverse, complex and rich as a whole continent. Every province brings a new set of flavours to its cuisine and a new range of beliefs, philosophies and languages to its people – and all of it is ripe for exploration. The hardest bit is just deciding where to go first.
