► CHINA DESTINATIONS BY CULTURE THEME

The Chinese are very proud of and have a deep and diverse culture that is very different to what we have in the West. In the last ten years or so there has been a cultural renaissance across China with huge sums being spent on the renovation and restoration of temples and palaces fuelled partly by the new found wealth of the nation but as much by a restored pride in their history which the local people are keen to showcase to visitors from around the world taking tours in China.
