China is both old and new, ancient and modern, moving forwards with a consciousness that lingers in the past. Icons such as the Great Wall of China and the Forbidden City are a reminder of China's 10,000 year old history whilst the skyscrapers of the Bejing CBD and the Bund district of Shanghai are a rush into the future.
Populated by a staggering 1.35 billion people, China holds the title of the world's most populated country. Many people land in Hong Kong for a connecting flight to the rest of the world but now more than ever, tourists are including China in their Asian adventure. Surrounded by other growing favourites such as Nepal and India, it is quickly moving up on the ultimate travel bucket list.
Visit the busy cities of Shanghai, Guangzhou and Hong Kong and you'll experience the craziness of China's metropolitan side. Take your journey further afield to the sacred mountains of Tibet to get lost in the idyllic landscapes of the west and escape the overwhelming pull into modernity.

Best way to get around
For fast and reliable travel around China, travel by rail. You'll need to show your passport when booking tickets.
If you want to visit those hard-to-reach areas that aren't accessible by train, take the bus. Avoid going by bus on long journeys as air-conditioning is not always available but cramped conditions are guaranteed.
If you're short on time, you can fly between the major cities. Have your passport with you at all times, it is the only acceptable form of I.D. for international tourists.
Hire a car and explore the vast and varied landscapes. Roads are better in more populated areas.
