► CHINA DESTINATIONS BY HISTORY THEME

With over 5,000 years of written history and an almost unbroken line of dynasties during this period China has an extraordinary history on show from both the ancient past to the history in the making that is going on in the present as China continues to change at a dramatic pace in the early 21st Century.
 
For many it is this the ancient sights and the stories which go with them that is the driving reason for their holiday to China and this almost always plays a major role in the tours we offer.
