China holidays tell a tale of two countries – one is an ancient kingdom embedded in the past, the other an electrifying age of change. Beijing’s Imperial City is a trove of ancient treasures, with the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square echoing with history. Xian is home to the outstanding Terracotta Warriors which were discovered in 1974 by a group of farmers who were digging a well. These are just some of the many landmarks in this colourful history book that are a must-see.

Day 1

Destination 1 - Beijing

A holiday to Beijing, China's majestic capital city, offers an experience of World Heritage Sites - from the Great Wall, to the sprawling Tiananmen Square.

Day 1

Destination 2 - Xian

The famous Terracotta Warriors truly are a sight to behold, while Xian also provides shoppers and culture vultures with plenty to whet their appetite. The Ming dynasty certainly knew how to live, with Xian's stately city wall and seven storey Wild Goose Pagodajust, a couple of landmarks in the colourful history book that are a must-see on a holiday to Xian.
