TRAVEL TO CHINA

To travel to China is to immerse oneself in one of the countries that have exerted the greatest fascination for Westerners. Despite the multiplication of artistic and cultural exchanges between East and West, travel to China remains associated with the idea of mystery, exoticism, and surprise, with the fragments of a millenary culture materialized in its great constructions of the past and the exoticism of those new paradises whose news are slowly distilled in the media: Shangrilá, Lijiang, or Lhasa.

During the trip to China, personal experience will allow organizing in an adequate way the fragments of information that make up its rich reality, because traveling to China is an experience that includes a multitude of situations always different, in a country with a thousand mysterious faces where any wonder seems possible. From that monumental culture inherited from imperial times, already familiar to some travelers, the journey to China opens up a range of possibilities that extends to the limits of its borders, encompassing little-known peoples, heirs to legendary kingdoms, and surprising cultures that are home to some of the most spectacular landscapes on our planet.

China blossoms for the traveler. Between its modernity and its tradition, the bustling cities of the coast and the solitary landscapes of the interior, its secrets revealed and those others that remain half-kept, no one will return disappointed from a trip to China, because whatever his interest, he will find an offer of activities capable of fulfilling his expectations.
