Excursions
Great Wall of China

The Great Wall of China is a barrier fortification in northern China running west-to-east 13,171 miles (21,196 km) and was built from the 3rd century BC to the 17th century AD. It's a sight to behold.

Forbidden City

The Forbidden City, situated in the very heart of Beijing, was home to 24 emperors of the Ming (1368–1644) and Qing (1644–1911) Dynasties. Entry was forbidden to ordinary people, hence it's name.

Summer Palace

Once the playground of emperors it is said to be the best preserved imperial garden in the world, and the largest of its kind still in existence in China. It covers 70k sq/m and holds over 3000 houses.

Terracotta Warriors

The terracotta army, part of First Emperor Qin's mausoleum, was created to safeguard and serve him in his afterlife.  The work began in 246 BCE and involved over a staggering 700,000 workers.

Panda Reserve

The Giant Panda Breeding Research Base specializes in baby pandas and their care. It's one of the most popular destinations for foreign travelers. And it's a must-go place when you go to Chengdu.

Zhangjiajie National Forest Park

In 1982 it was recognized as China's first national forest park with an area of 11,900 acres. Photographs here inspired the floating Hallelujah Mountains in the movie Avatar.

Relax with a boat ride down the lake through Phoenix Ancient Town.  The views from the boat allow for a mouth watering spectacle of ancient buildings, mountains, and water.

Longji's terraced fields offer some of the most fantastic scenery in China. The sight of when the sun reflects onto the rice paddies is truly mesmerising.
