Hong Kong to Shanghai Overview
Ancient sites, bright lights and cultural rites in captivating China
Travelling in China reveals a country of exciting contrasts, a place where city lights brighten ancient alleyways, where spectacular, natural landscapes conceal imperial monuments and where village life continues as it has for centuries. Breathe in the vibrancy of Hong Kong and Shanghai, escape from the crowds in laid back Fenghuang, bike ride in Hangzhou and cruise along the famed Yangzi. Discover these distinctive contradictions as we traverse from beating city to rustic countryside and back again.
