With thousands of years of history, China has a beautifully rich and complex culture that should be experienced first-hand. Home to amazing cities like Shanghai and Beijing, and famous sites and cultural landmarks like the Great Wall, China can be a fantastic place for anyone’s next vacation. As one of the largest and most biodiverse countries in the world, each of China’s different regions has its own cultural identity. With almost 300 different languages spoken throughout the country, you’ll likely have the opportunity to experience something new each time you visit.
On your first visit, be sure to make Beijing, one of the largest cities in the world, a priority. Beijing is home to seven UNESCO World Heritage Sites like the Great Wall of China, Forbidden City, and the Summer Palace. You can also walk in the footsteps of history as you stroll across Tiananmen Square and soak in the culture and the history of Beijing. The ancient cultural landmarks and amenities of the modern city can make Beijing an unforgettable destination.
If the city life isn’t for you, take a trip to Lijiang. Famous for its own UNESCO World Heritage Site, Old Town of Lijiang, the city’s unique combination of traditional Chinese and the more local Nakhi cultures can make Lijiang a wonderful vacation spot. After taking in the history and sights of Lijiang, escape the city tempo and bask in the tranquility of Lugu Lake or Black Dragon Pond Park.
