We simply couldn't talk about China's must not miss aspects without mentioning the famous Great Wall. A site of historical importance and sheer beauty, the iconic landmark winds up and down deserts, grasslands, mountains and plateaus, stretching up to 21,196km.

The Pudong Skyline

When you think of Shanghai, chances are the Pudong Skyline comes to mind. Famous around the world, it features the iconic Oriental Pearl Tower and many other futuristic skyscrapers.

Enchanting Guilin

For breathtaking scenery, Guilin in the province of Guangxi has plenty to offer. Here you'll find an area rich in history surrounded by giant mountains covered in bamboo. Play the adventurer and take a tour through the mysterious caves, sail above crystal clear waters in the many lakes or take in the city's sights, like the beautiful Sun and Moon Twin Pagodas.

Taipa Village

While Macau has been quite modernised, some parts of the enclave still honour the past. Taipa Village showcases its authentic Portuguese atmosphere that was so prevalent when the Portugese ruled Macau until the late 1990s.

The Peak, Hong Kong

Also known as Victoria Peak, the Peak boasts one of the most magnificent views of all Hong Kong, stretching from Victoria Harbour to the New Territories. Accessible through Bus 15 and 15C near Central Pier 7 and Exchange Square, it's something you simply have to do when you visit this exciting destination.
