Located at a fabulous junction of ancient Oriental traditions and customs meeting modern living and contemporary city life, China has a little something for everyone.
China has a long and varied history. There are many notable historic sites that absolutely must be visited while traveling through the Asian country. In Beijing, don't miss the chance to stop by the Forbidden City, and the tragic tiananmen square.
In Xi An, be sure to marvel upon the eerie grandeur of the thousands of terracotta soldiers that were buried with China's first Emperor to guard him into the next life. Of course, no trip to China would be complete without visiting the Great Wall -- one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World.
While historic China is one piece of the puzzle, so too are the bright lights and cosmopolitan vibes of Shanghai. Stroll along the Bund, enjoy some of China's best nightlife and revel in the international vibes of China's most Western city.
China is best enjoyed in the spring and fall months. In the summer, some parts of the country get blisteringly hot, whereas in the winter, they often dip deep into the minuses.
