China has emerged as a true superpower of the 21st century, using its massive population and influence to grow at a rate unrivalled around the world.

With expensive domestic projects and a burgeoning middle class, the modern culture of China is in a state of evolution and presents a fascinating exploration for tourists.

Of course, there are also millenia of history spread across the country with some of the world’s most famous landmarks – the Great Wall or the Terracotta Warriors, for example. The Oriental art and architecture on display is a testament to human creation, while the varied regional foods is reason enough to travel across China.
