Xian 西安

The home of the world famous “Terra Cota Soldiers” this ancient city attracts millions of tourists, both domestic and foreign. These amazing characters were carved out of stone, and were created to protect the Emperor in the afterlife. Look into an up to date account of the main tourist attractions of Xian, which will help you to plan your trip.


Shangri La 香格里拉

This is known as the town in the clouds, which sits on the Chinese border with Tibet and is about 4 hours’ drive from Lijiang. The Yunnan Mountains make up the surroundings and if you love natural beauty, this is the place to visit, and with a National Park not far away, this is the ideal place to spend a few days.

Pingyao 平遥

This historical city was the capital of the Ming Dynasty, which ruled China from the 14th t0 17th centuries. the splendid architecture is a reminder of how wealthy the rulers were at that time. European tourists LOVE seeing the amazing buildings and temples, which were very much a trademark of the prosperous era in China’s history.

There is so much to see, do, and experience in mainland China. I enjoy travelling free & easy (a.k.a non-guided tour) but travelling in China without a tour guide isn't the best option because navigating between attractions can be a hassle. We reckon do some research online at the planning stage and look out for guided tours! Till then x
