China is a the third largest country in the world, roughly the same size as the USA and with the world’s largest population. It’s a country with an ancient history and Chinese civilisation has endured through millenniums of revolutions, golden ages and anarchies.

The depth and variety of Chinese civilisation, with its abundant heritage, has long fascinated western travellers such as Marco Polo and continues to excite travellers today. The country has a lot to offer, some of which I’m sharing with you here.
