China

China offers a fantastic blend of the old and the new; on the one hand, the Great Wall of China stands for the impressive and long history that this country has to offer, while on the other the bustling cosmopolitan city of  Beijing offers a glimpse into the hi-tech world of modern China.

Known as the Middle Kingdom, China is the third largest nation in the world bordering 14 countries that include Russia, Mongolia, and Vietnam. Due to its size, this country boasts a diverse landscape ranging from snow-capped mountains to enchanting deserts. With a long history that dates back to around 1250BC, China is also full of fascinating artefacts, making it a thrilling destination with a little something for everyone.
