    China

    Simultaneously the world's most modern and ancient civilisation

    A trip to China is simply transformative. Offering a culture, history, and way of life so different to ours and very much its own - the experience for the visitor can be overwhelming. Despite its dominance in today’s world, China has historically remained underdeveloped as a luxury travel destination. This is now changing and we have developed new ways of experiencing the country that are off-the-beaten-track and authentic, yet retain total comfort.

    Your tailor-made-holiday will likely start in one of the metropolises of Beijing, Shanghai or Hong Kong. In each of these characterful cities, we can take you beneath the tourist veneer through our expert guides and friends on the ground. In Beijing, experience the Forbidden City with an architecture specialist, who can take you to hidden spots, untroubled by other visitors. We can also make a visit to Great Wall of China even more extraordinary, by taking you a little further to a quiet section of the wall where a stunning picnic will be waiting for you.

    Only a two-hour drive from the fashion-forward Shanghai lies dreamy Hangzhou, with its mystical West Lake which has been enchanting poets and artists since the 9th Century.

    In Chengdu in the exciting Sichuan province, we can arrange special experiences with pandas and also cooking classes where you can understand the fantastic fiery cuisine of the south. The city is also the gateway to Jiuzhaigou, a national park with breathtaking scenery.

    With our Destination Experts’ depth of knowledge, the possibilities in China really are endless. From exploring the wild Yunnan province, to even experiencing the mythical Lhasa in Tibet, we can offer clients something truly extraordinary.

    Hong Kong is without question one of the world’s most vibrant cities and it is well worth spending at least two or three nights soaking up all that this enigmatic destination has to offer. If you have the time, a fascinating day can be spent hiking and visiting remote villages in the Northern New Territories outside of the city, where rural life continues relatively unchanged.
