► OUR FAVOURITE CHINA DESTINATIONS

This is, to some extent, a subjective list but based on innumerable trips to China as well as time spent living there since 1997. All are destinations we would heartily recommend although some may be more suitable than others depending on what you are looking for in your own trip. In short, this is a list of places we would want to cover in our ultimate China tour!

The Must See Sights of China Offering Great Variety

Below you will find many "must see" sights such as Beijing and Yangshuo, Shanghai and Xian all of which we have been to many times. Others are places we have visited but would also want to visit again if (when!) given half the chance! They include a fantastic variety of experience and, between them, cover all the categories we have split destinations into above.

If you are, like us, lucky enough to have visited all these places we are sure you will share our passion for travel in China. We are also sure that over time there will be more places to add to this list so keep returning to see where the next place we recommend will be.
