Very few countries can rival the offerings of China with its vast space, ancient civilisation, sumptuous cuisine, outstanding architectural structures and gorgeous natural attractions. Admire impressive landmarks and monuments or go on an adventure hike amidst breathtaking mountains, gorges and ridges. Delight your palate with authentic Chinese dishes or enjoy stunning views of cities from a skyscraper. And if you love towns or the countryside, China is the perfect choice for places to visit. The landscapes are precious. Flights to China arrive at Beijing Capital, Shanghai Pudong or Guangzhou Baiyun International Airports. Air China, Singapore Airlines, All Nippon Airways, Qantas and British Airlines are major air carriers that operate in the country.
Beijing is the capital city of China, a modern urban centre with a magnificent past. Admire the hallmarks of imperial architecture such as the Great Wall of China, the Ming Tombs, the Summer Palace and the Forbidden City - all proud testaments to a glorious history. Ramble along Hutongs (public alleys with private houses) to catch a glimpse of the traditional lifestyle or buy anything under the sun in the outdoor markets, from pearls and silk to bags and antiques. Shanghai, the second most important city in the country, is also a major financial hub. Teeming with skyscrapers and shopping malls, Shanghai boasts of a pretty waterfront promenade, monasteries, temples and museums. It has also a colourful nightlife and the dining scene is so rich it's practically decadent.
