China, Asia


Few countries can boast a history as rich and ancient as China, and few can match its gigantic cities in modern development. This nation is a behemoth in every sense – so how do you begin to unpack it as a tourist destination?

You could spend years exploring all the nooks and crannies of this vast and varied land, but there are two iconic sights that simply cannot be missed. First, the Great Wall of China, which can’t even be missed from space, apparently. A walk along these famed ramparts is a must, as is a visit to the eery Army of Terracotta Warriors – the stone-faced battalion of sculptures, which depict the armies of Qin Shi Huang, China’s first emperor. These two attractions alone are unlike anything else on Earth, and draw countless visitors every single year.
