If you've not yet ticked the Great Wall of China off your bucket list then now's the time to do so! Listed a New Wonder of the World back in 2007, it's China's most visited sites and included on all our group tours to the Land of the Dragon where you'll find a rich history, marvellous monuments and mouth-watering cuisine. It'll be the year of the dog and what better way to honour tradition like the trusty canine sign than with a visit to the imperial city of Beijing or the royal funerary art of Xi'an's Terracotta Warriors?
It's believed China's economy will overtake that of the U.S. in 2018 so this world superpower shows no sign of slowing down. The best place to experience modern China is in the glitzy city of Shanghai where skyscrapers rise from the ground for miles around. It's also the year that the FINA World Swimming Championships will be held in Hangzhou so aquatic enthusiasts will find plenty of entertain them.
