Rail Tours in China

Enigmatic, historic, culturally rich and filled with wonders, China is thoroughly enthralling

For many western travellers, arriving in China for the first time is akin to stepping into another world. Although the country boasts the world's oldest civilisation and retains many ancient customs and traditions, China's major cities are dazzlingly futuristic, teeming with colour and life. Nevertheless, historical and cultural highlights from earlier eras are abundant, and whilst westerners may have learned about landmarks such as the Great Wall, the Forbidden City and the Terracotta Warriors from guide books or the internet, nothing can compare with the extraordinary experience of seeing them at first hand. The third-largest country in the world, it seems every inch of China is packed with unforgettable sights, from exquisite ancient temples and pagodas to crowded, neon-lit cityscapes, snow-capped mountain ranges to endless rice-paddies. Yet China's remarkable urban and rural beauty is only part of the country's endless allure; there's also a rich cultural and artistic legacy to explore, sumptuous cuisine to be sampled and a seemingly limitless fund of unique attractions, experiences and activities to enjoy.
