Holidays to China

Holidays to China are fascinating affairs. The China of old: enigmatic, secretive and quietly powerful is today entering a new, dynamic, phase in its history. The old ways are being swept aside, and the country is opening up, as it strides purposefully into the 21st Century on the back of a tremendous economic boom. However, despite all the obvious changes the Middle Kingdom still holds true to many of its traditional values and there is a pervading sense of the established and ancient as you walk along the Great Wall, wander through the corridors of power in the Forbidden City or gaze at the Terracotta Army as it stands guard on its eternal watch.

As well as including these world famous attractions in your holiday to China or tour to China, Bamboo Travel can show you the other side of China, less well known but every bit as enticing. Cycle through old villages outside Yangshuo, walk along Tiger Leaping Gorge, mingle with colourful hill tribes in the tiered paddy fields of Yunnan or marvel at the sublime beauty of Hangzhou’s West Lake. As the infrastructure improves so holidays to China and tours in China are easier to put together making it a great time to sample the wealth of splendours, both natural and man-made, that abound in this amazing and massive country. Whatever your desires we can help you turn them into a reality with our in-depth knowledge of China and our bespoke approach to your holiday.

"Overall, the trip was totally fantastic. The organisation was great - the guides were always there when we arrived, the hotel reservations were all fine, all entrances to sites were paid up, the vehicles..."  Lyndsey Gunn - London
