    Why Embark on a China Tour?

    For many people, a trip to China is a life's dream, due to the special culture and its diverse landscapes. The cosmopolitan cities of Beijing, Hong Kong or Shanghai are pulsating metropolises where the future has already begun. On the other hand, there is the traditional China, where culture is cultivated. Unique sights, such as the Oriental Pearl Tower in Shanghai, the Forbidden City, the mighty Yangtze River, and the beautiful Chinese national parks await you. One of the absolute highlights of a trip through China is definitely the Great Wall.

    Where to Go on Your China Vacation

    China is known for its modern world metropolises, such as Beijing or the mega-city Shanghai—but China also has a lot to offer in terms of landscape with its unique national parks. You should definitely include these places on your China tour.

    What You'll Experience on Your China Tour

    Hike Through Mountains, Rice Terraces and National Parks

    Discover the mystical, green karst mountains and rice terraces of Longsheng, which are seemingly endless, reach up to an altitude of almost 900 meters and were already created by humans 700 years ago. In Suzhou, the artistically designed gardens and canals are particularly enchanting. In the water village Zhujiaojiao you will encounter more than 2,000 years of Chinese history and culture. The village owes its nickname "Venice of Shanghai" to the numerous bridges of the Ming and Qing dynasties.

    Explore China's Metropolises

    In stark contrast to this rural idyll is the metropolis of Hong Kong. Here you look down from "Victoria Peak" at a height of 373 meters on the metropolis. You can also visit the "Floating Village Aberdeen", where the fishermen still live on houseboats as they have for generations, with the magnificent skyline of the cosmopolitan city in front of your eyes. Another highlight is a visit to the mega-city Shanghai, where traditional houses stand next to modern skyscrapers in the old town. Here you can also see beautiful examples of Chinese horticulture. From the imposing "Jinmao Tower" you have a fantastic view of the whole city. Stroll through the Hutong quarter "Tian Zi Fang", where small restaurants and bars invite you to stop for a bite to eat.

    Where to Go on a China Vacation?

    Terracotta Army

    The UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Terracotta Army in Xian is an oversized collection of life-size terracotta sculptures in battle formations symbolizing the imperial guard troops of the first Emperor Qin Shi Huang of Imperial China. For years the massive mausoleum of Qin Shi Huang remained undiscovered for centuries. It is one of the most important archaeological excavation sites of the 20th century.

    Jangtze Cruise

    The Jangtze River is the longest river in the country and the entire continent, at over 6,000 kilometers. A cruise on this breathtaking river is a unique life experience. You will pass the scenic scenery of the famous Three Gorges Qutang Gorge, Wu Gorge and Xiling Gorge while exploring the historical relics and ancient cultural sites along the mighty river. Observe the landscapes of the mountainous valleys and the wonder of the Three Gorges Dam, the largest dam in the world.

    Great Wall

    With a length of over 21,000 kilometers, the Great Wall of China is the longest fortification on earth. Built with a combination of bricks, stones, wood and other materials, it was originally built to defend against the nomadic incursions from the north that threatened the Chinese empires. The Great Wall of China can be visited in several places and is a unique and unforgettable experience.

    Breeding Station of the Panda Bears in Chengdu

    The Chengdu Giant Panda Breeding Station was created to mimic the natural habitat of the animals, so that they have the best possible environment for breeding and rearing. The giant pandas are not only a Chinese national treasure, but are also loved by people all over the world. They are only found in the provinces of Sichuan, Shaanxi and Gansu.

    Rice Terraces in Longsheng

    The rice terraces in the village of Longji show a picture of great dynamism and imposing beauty. With a history of more than 700 years, the area is still used for growing high-quality rice. The rice terraces are built into the hills and look like big steps cutting into the slopes. This sophisticated irrigation method makes the best use of the scarce arable and water resources in this mountainous area. Less

    Useful Information for Planning Your Trip

    Due to the size of the country, it is difficult to say when is the best time to travel. In large parts of the country, however, especially in spring and autumn, the climatic conditions are very pleasant. It is then neither very hot nor too cold and the monsoon hardly plays a role during this time. If you travel from north to south through this huge country, you will cross several climate zones. From snow-covered tundra areas to extensive forests with a moderate climate and rainforests to the white sandy beaches in the south, you will experience the most diverse weather conditions in China. Would you like to visit Shanghai? This is also very possible in winter, because here in southwest China the temperatures in winter are mild.
