China stands along­side some of the most ex­otic an­cient civil­i­sa­tions, as well as In­dia, Baby­lon and Egypt.

It is home to a vast and var­ied ge­o­graph­i­cal ex­pan­sion, as well as a rich and pro­found cul­ture.

This cul­ture is very di­verse and unique, at the same time, mul­ti­cul­tural bring­ing to­gether vis­i­tors from around the world to ex­pe­ri­ence their dif­fer­ent life­style.

China’s na­tional her­itage is tan­gi­ble and in­tan­gi­ble, hold­ing some of the world’s great­est won­ders and historic sites, as well as eth­nic fes­ti­vals, songs and life­style. Chi­nese cui­sine has a count­less ar­ray of fan­tas­tic and de­li­cious dishes. How­ever, some of these dishes can be de­ceiv­ing in their taste.

These foods have no limit in their cre­ativ­ity, sur­pris­ing peo­ple with flavours of sweet, salty, bland, sour or spicy. A great amount of thought has been tai­lored to each meal with these unique flavours cater­ing to the spe­cific re­quire­ments and likes of vis­i­tors and lo­cals alike.

Walking around the an­cient streets of China is a blast from the past.

The at­mos­phere is filled with all kinds of smells and flavours of dif­fer­ent street foods. Ev­ery­where you turn, be­hind ev­ery colour­ful street, you are faced with dif­fer­ent lo­cal stores and mar­kets sell­ing their prod­ucts.

There will be count­less op­por­tu­ni­ties to try unique street food and ex­pe­ri­ence the true lo­cal life­style.

These dif­fer­ent food cul­tures had a sig­nif­i­cant impact on how they were pro­duced dur­ing the Chi­nese mid­dle ages (which saw a steady change in regimes).

China went from four war­ring king­doms to be­ing the most cul­tur­ally tech­no­log­i­cal and so­phis­ti­cated of the de­vel­oped na­tions.

Be­cause of the An­cient Bat­tles raged against China, we are now able to bet­ter ap­pre­ci­ate the his­tor­i­cal sig­nif­i­cance of places like The For­bid­den City, The Great Wall of China, Ter­ra­cotta War­riors and the Longji Rice Fields just some of the mar­velous des­ti­na­tions that China has to of­fer.

With all the amaz­ing peo­ple, fab­u­lous lo­ca­tions, mag­nif­i­cent views and his­tory, this is the per­fect get­away for any­one who loves to ex­pe­ri­ence new things or travel on a truly cul­tural ad­ven­ture.
