It may sound like an impossibly colossal country, but the historic and cultural gems dotted all over this cultural melting pot make China one of the most exciting and diverse travel getaways. Be wowed by huge cosmopolitan cities, humbled by the welcoming folk of smaller communities and taken aback by the historic glory of past emperors and dynasties.
