If you are looking for a complete cultural change from life in the West, travelling to China is possibly the place for you. It is unlike almost anywhere else on the planet. Of course, the trappings of a modern society are everywhere to see. The mobile phone is ubiquitous and modern office blocks and skyscrapers now tower above the ancient street of many of the large cities.
Dig a little deeper and look past the superficial trappings of modern living, then you will find a country with its own unique food and drink, distinct languages and literature, a mix of different cultures, and a fascinating history.
The ‘new’ China is a powerhouse economically and politically. This is a country eager to make the rest of the world sit up and take notice. It is hard to ignore the political and economic impact of this vast country; however for the adventurous tourist there is a great deal to be discovered.
There are the obvious great sites of China, such as The Great Wall, Shanghai, the Forbidden City and the Terracotta warriors of Xi’an. These are all rightly at the top of any tourists list of must-sees. But there is so much more when you get off the tourist trail.
