It has never been as easy to travel East, with many major companies now operating charter flights costs have also dropped dramatically. The diversity and culture of the country is something to be marveled at, offering over 23 world heritage sites, the great wall and Forbidden City to mention just a few. Tourism is growing at a huge pace and there is plenty here to feed the needs of the most discerning traveler.
When you have had your fill of culture and historical sites then why not visit one of the dice dens (casinos) see if lady luck is on your side, or enjoy the vibrant atmosphere of Beijing’s markets where you can barter for goods, sample local delicacies or just watch the acrobats performing their amazing stunts. If you are a karaoke fan then you will be in your element here as most of the nightlife is centered around Karaoke bars, nightclubs are slowly popping up but are poor in quality in comparison to our western type super clubs.
The huge variety of food available in China is amazing, most of it is served fresh which means if fish is on the menu you get to choose it yourself from the tank, superb if washed down with the local rice wine. Lastly don’t forget the beaches, you may think that they will not be upto much, but you will be pleasantly surprised I am sure as they can rival any beach in Asia with soft sands, warm waters which combined with the hot sunshine and the fact that they are safe and uncrowded makes for the ideal beach get a way.
