China: a tourist mecca of the highest order!

China has enjoyed an uninterrupted Dynastic history spanning more than 5,000 of years.
As in Italy, Greece and Egypt, one has only to stick a spade in the ground and the likelihood that some item of antiquity turns up is great. There is so much to see and to experience in China.

If you have travelled from afar, and can afford to stay a few more days, you should treat yourself to some rest and relaxation and see the major historical sights. Click here for more information
