Having gone there for decades, we like to think of ourselves as old China hands. And yet we are constantly rediscovering this vast country. If you yearn to see the well-known sights—Beijing’s Forbidden City, the Great Wall, Xian’s Terracotta Warriors, the limestone karsts of magic Guilin—we'll help you navigate them without the crowds and in the company of connoisseurs. You may also enjoy branching out from those classics to marvelous places like Kunming, nicknamed the City of Eternal Spring, and Yunnan Province’s spectacular gorges and snow ranges. Prefer to take in your scenery by boat? We offer river cruising along the Yangtze and the Yulong.
The list goes on: You could traipse into the high Tibetan borderlands, visit panda preserves, investigate China’s millennial tea culture, trace the rise and fall of dynasties, or dally in remote tribal villages. The possibilities are endless, as beﬁts this huge, diverse, and massively intriguing country.
