There is something so mysterious about a country that is steeped in such fascinating ancient history and culture and I can’t wait to share my own experiences with you. China is a truly diverse country and if you have the time I would highly recommend taking your time to explore it. From the breathtaking Great Wall to the peaceful rolling rice terraces and quaint hidden villages; there really is so much to discover. My tip would be, don’t miss out on the highlights but also make sure to spend at least a few days out in the countryside to relax and take in the incredible landscapes.
When I had the opportunity to plan trips to China I jumped at the chance. From the impressive Great wall to the Terracotta Army, rice paddies to Tiger Leaping Gorge, this ancient country has everything for an avid traveller, from great cuisine to history and culture – why would anyone want to miss out on such a diverse and exciting destination? Not to mention those pandas!
China has always fascinated me so when I had the opportunity to visit some friends who were living in Beijing, I jumped at the chance to head out there on my first trip with Rickshaw Travel. During my time away I visited the Summer Palace, Forbidden City and of course The Great Wall! I then travelled by overnight sleeper train and flight to Xi’an and Chengdu to learn all about the cuddly pandas.
