China has emerged from centuries of civil unrest and dictatorial domination to become a modern superpower. Bordered by Russia to the north and Laos, Vietnam, India, and the Himalayas to the south, China is the origin of some of the world’s greatest philosophers, scientists, and religious and military leaders, each of whom have left their mark on the soul of the nation.
China’s geography ranges from plateaus and mountains in the west, to extensive plains in the east, and the Gobi Desert in the north. Life flourishes along the country’s rivers, with both the Yangzte and Yellow home to a variety of endemic species and flowing through widely-varying ecosystems.
The marvels of the ancient range from the smallest of temples to the impressive Great Wall, one of the world’s oldest wonders. In Beijing, find opulent palaces and treasures from past dynasties inside the Forbidden City, its preserved wooden structure contrasting with the shining facilities built for the 2008 Winter Olympic Games.
The wealth of history and culture in China makes an excellent addition to any itinerary in Asia. Talk to your Ker & Downey travel expert about including the country in your custom itinerary, or simply choose from our suggested itineraries with China as the focus.
