China is a truly diverse and interesting country. China's fascinating culture dates back thousands of years, and the country is full of incredible historical sites. At the same time, a number of thriving ultra-modern cities can be found in the country, stuffed with bustling industry that has made China one of the modern world's most formidable economies. At the same time, China is still home to many beautiful and relatively undeveloped rural areas, with their vast swathes of beautiful, natural scenery.
For many visitors who choose to go on luxury China holidays, the long history of the nation is the biggest attraction. Certain historical sites and objects are immediately familiar around the world. The incredible Great Wall is one of the most well-known historical attractions in China of all, closely followed by the army of terracotta warriors. Most cities in China boast a museum, and many of these contain a range of artefacts and artworks dating back thousands of years.
Chinese food is also world-famous and loved around the globe. The dishes available in Western restaurants are just the start of China's food culture. Each region has its own distinctive spin on the nation's cuisine. Wherever you go in China, you will find a range of distinctive and delicious dishes to enjoy.
Luxury holidays to China allow you to experience the unique and exotic culture of this great nation.

With tailor made holidays to China, you can expect to encounter some truly beautiful scenery, and the country houses a number of very different but equally breathtaking types of scenery. Mountains, in particular, are central to many parts of Chinese culture. They have inspired aspects of the nation's philosophy, art and literature. When you see the rugged beauty of the Chinese mountains, it is easy to see why they have had so much influence on the nation. The Huanshan Mountains, which are also called the Yellow Mountains, are one of the most famous mountain ranges in the country. The Himalayas, of course, are more famous still, and their towering shapes are a truly humbling site.
Luxury China holidays are also associated with beautiful rivers, and incredible cave systems. Thousands of people from around the world come every year to see the beauty of the Li River, or to cruise along it and experience the various towns the river meets on its course to the sea. Many Chinese caves, meanwhile, are adorned with statues and tie into the country's long history. Among the most popular is the Reed Flute Cave, with its colourful illumination and beautiful halls.
