China has so many historic, cultural and architectural highlights that selecting a shortlist could pose quite a problem. So this Highlights of China tour presents you with the country’s absolute must-see, tick-the-box attractions.
In Beijing you’ll visit the vast Tiananmen Square and the secretive but beautiful Forbidden City, home of China’s emperors for centuries. Then, of course, you’ll walk along the Great Wall, before setting off for the ancient city of Pingyao, founded 2700 years ago.
