CHINA TOURING


An extraordinary land of natural magnificence, mythical legend and spectacular modern advancements, the China of the 21st century is a captivating blend of excitement, intrigue and wonder.

A fascinating country that that has retained its traditional heritage in the midst of world-class contemporary development, it is little wonder that the world’s most populous country has established itself as one of the most popular to visit too.

While many of China’s ancient sites need little introduction, there is no comparison to actually seeing these remarkable  landmarks up close, so a Travelbag China tour is the perfect opportunity to see, touch and experience them like never before.

...

With Travelbag you will have the chance to stroll along the Great Wall of China, be transported to another era in Beijing’s majestic Forbidden City and explore pockets of China’s rural towns, such as the picturesque Lijiang and quaint Kunming.

Furthermore, Travelbag is committed to ensuring your experiences are unique, from discovering the sleepy ancient water town of Zhujiajiao, to sharing a delicious homemade feast with a welcoming local Beijing family, to making acquaintance with the inspiring Giant Pandas of Chengdu.

Board the Victoria Grace cruise ship, take a seat on your own private balcony and marvel at the spectacular scenery as it floats by, come face-to-face with the mysterious Terracotta Army of historic Xian and admire new and old alongside each other in the sprawling metropolis of Shanghai – the timeless beauty of China will leave you in awe.

For an adventure into China’s mesmerising rural reaches, a Tibet tour takes you to the heart of the snowy peaks of the Himalayas, where monasteries, cliff-top palaces and idyllic lakes are waiting to be discovered.

More than that though, beyond its incredible ancient finery, a tour to China is a chance to witness a country evolving in real-time, a contemporary status immortalised by Beijing’s legendary hosting of the 2008 Summer Olympic Games, the ascending skyline of Shanghai and the introduction of the Maglev ‘bullet trains’.

There has never been a better time to discover 21st century China, ideal for those seeking a rural adventure on a path less well travelled, a chance to immerse themselves in a striking culture or cities thriving against the backdrop of a grandiose past.
