China
The Essential

China is a gigantic country that cannot be explored in just one trip. You will have to choose between regions and hop on a plane or high-speed train to get from one to the other. Whatever the distances, you will be rewarded by a journey, rich in infinite horizons, diverse landscapes and a wealth of atmospheres.
Whether you start by peeking behind the walls of the legendary Forbidden City, in the heart of the capital of a hundred faces, Beijing or on the stones of the incredible Great Wall of China, you will immediately realise you are in a country unlike any other. Whether you continue on foot, gazing up at the sparkling skyscrapers of Shanghai or down the canals of Suzhou, the "Venice of the East", you will be spellbound. As you continue over the head-spinning footbridges of the Yellow Mountains, a landscape that seems to have stepped out of a Chinese etching, or to the rice paddy terraces carved out of the hillsides at Yuanyang, the pleasure is unadulterated. As you meditate on the banks of the beautiful Lake of Five Flowers in the enchanting Valley of Jiuzaighou, or on Peak Victoria at the top of bustling Hong Kong, you understand that you are living a unique moment - in which every minute seems unforgettable!
