Map of China
Vast and varied, traditional yet dynamic – few countries can match China. Soaring skyscrapers stand amidst remnants of a three thousand year old civilisation and the remains of the powerful Han dynasty. Whether roaming the Forbidden City or exploring minority villages in Yunnan; staying in a plush hotel or a humble hostel; enjoying a boisterous festival or dining in the finest dim sum restaurant, use our map of China below to plan your trip around this captivating nation.
The Great Wall of China is one of the country’s most popular tourist attractions for a reason; take a hike along the defensive walls and marvel at the ancient ramparts and fortifications, some dating back to the fifth century BC. Join the pilgrims and circuit Lhasa’s Jokhang, Tibetan Buddhism’s holiest temple, or get up close and personal with highly endangered Giant Pandas at a Sichuan sanctuary. Alternatively, glide down picture-perfect Li River, where you’ll pass Guilin’s stunning karst pinnacles.Find out more about Chinachevron_right
