The ultimate tour of China with Times Expert Traveller

See this extraordinary country, from the Forbidden City to the thrusting towers of Shanghai, on this exclusive Times Expert Traveller tour.


China is an astonishing destination: a vast country of staggering dynamism layered with millennia of history and culture. The only way to appreciate its sheer scale, energy and nuances is, of course, by visiting in person. This special escorted tour itinerary has been designed to take in the stand-out sights with expert insight at every stage. Meet the locals in Beijing. Spend time with the pandas of Chengdu. Take a moment to reflect at spectacular Buddhist temples. Marvel at the Terracotta Warriors; and gaze out from the sleek high-rise towers of an economic powerhouse. From the Forbidden City to Shanghai, via the bucolic meanderings of the Yangtze River, experience a nation at its powerful, beguiling best.
