China Custom Tours
Shanghai is overflowing with mystery, intrigue, and beauty. Xian conveys a staggering sense of unreasonable loyalty to an emperor’s’ household. Wherever you go, China offers a multitude of options for sightseeing, travel, luxury, and adventure.
The Great Wall
The Great Wall stretches a total of over 6,700 miles (4,160 miles) from Shanhaiguan in the east to Lop Nur in the west, roughly delineating the southern edge of Inner Mongolia. If you wish to experience this architectural wonder for yourself, we can arrange a variety of travel packages to The Great Wall of China, including hikes with overnight sleeping under the stars and side visits to the Ming Tombs.
The Terracotta Warriors of Xian
The Terracotta Army is a form of funerary art buried with the First Emperor of Qin (210-209 BCE). The Terracotta Army was discovered in the eastern suburbs of Xi’an by local farmers drilling a water well. The size and majesty of this site will astound you.
The Forbidden City
Serving as the home of the Emperor as well as the political center of Chinese government, the Forbidden City acted as the Chinese imperial palace from 1406 to 1420. The Forbidden City was declared a World Heritage Site in 1987, and is listed by UNESCO as the largest collection of preserved ancient wooden structures in the world.
In one of China’s most famous scenic areas, majestic limestone mountain peaks rise into the sky along the Li River. The small town of Yangshuo is the most famous location along the river and barges cruise between Guilin and Yangshuo on a daily basis.
The Yellow Mountains
The Huangshan mountains in the Anhui province of eastern China are a frequent subject of traditional Chinese paintings and literature. The mountaintops often offer views of the clouds from above, known as the Sea of Clouds. Today, it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of China’s major tourist destinations.
Since explorer Marco Polo claimed it as the most beautiful city in China, its legend carries on. One of Hangzhou’s most popular sights, West Lake is known to tea lovers for its highly coveted Longjing tea.
Jiuzhaigou Valley is a nature reserve in the north of Sichuan, known for its many waterfalls and lakes. It was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1992. Flights are available from Chengdu for visitors wishing to experience its natural, untouched beauty.
The Bund lies north of the walled city of Shanghai and is home to 52 buildings of diverse architectural styles. If you enjoy day or evening strolls, this former British settlement is a delight.
The home of Sun Yat-sen and the Potala Palace are also worth a visit.
