China – Ancient and Modern

China – Ancient and Modern China – Ancient and Modern

This captivating journey from the cosmopolitan city of Hong Kong to the enchanting outposts of the Tibetan Plateau in Yunnan, illustrates perfectly the contrasts between the China of old and today’s dynamic country.

From Hong Kong you fly to Yunnan, a land of snowbound peaks, verdant terraced fields and rugged frontier lands, populated by some thirty different ethnic peoples and seemingly frozen in time. In the charming town of Lijiang, whose cobbled streets, arched bridges and canals date back to the Ming Dynasty, you explore traditional villages, thriving markets, fine monasteries and majestic scenery. Continue north, via the spectacular Tiger Leaping Gorge on the Yangtze River, to Zhongdian, which is surrounded by snowcapped mountains and is renowned for its traditional Tibetan culture and hospitality. The tour ends back in Hong Kong with the opportunity to explore this vibrant bastion of commerce and symbol of modern China.
