  1. Be adventurous. China has some delicious and interesting cuisine including barbequed insects and donkey burgers, so why not try something new!
  2. Find the seaside. China has amazing beaches so head to Qingdao in the Shandong Province because it is extremely laid-back and peaceful.
  3. Hire a guide. English is not the first language in China so unless you are fluent book a place on a guided tour, especially if you wish to travel away from the top tourist areas.
  4. Discover China’s 5,000 year old history. This is one of the main attractions of China so make sure you visit the many museums in the country. The Terracotta Army is a must-see!
  5. Travel by train. If you want to see some of China’s stunning landscapes book a train journey and admire the view! You’ll also get to spend some time with the locals and experience the high-speed rail.

An evening cruise on the river gives an unprecedented view of The Bund at night and The Great Wall of China is an adventure in itself- not to be missed!
