Some of history’s most fascinating chapters, within the walls of The Forbidden City and buried with the Terracotta Army.

The epitome of a good life is described in a single Chinese saying: “[Be] born in Suzhou, live in Hangzhou, eat in Guangzhou, die in Liuzhou”.

The contemporary art districts in both cities offer a glimpse of the new China, while ancient hutongs, the famous wall, historical palaces, and spectacular temples illustrate the Middle Kingdom’s glorious past. Other delicious reasons to visit include Peking duck, steaming baos and more regional cuisine than you can shake a chopstick at.
