China traveler reviews
’Upon returning to Beijing we stepped into Tiananmen Square for the first time. What a huge space, 800m long by 500m wide, the largest square in the world! The final day before the tour we hired bicycles. A must for anyone visiting. A great way to explore the city but also a real eye-opener, fun and hairaising, at one point we crossed what must be the widest road i have ever seen, 6 lanes each way + a 4 lane cycle path! So roughly 16 lanes in total!’

‘China has been a great experience, and so has Shanghai in particular. It's a bizarre city with modern buildings rising out of slums, food stalls at every corner, washing lines attached to anything possible and the tired 1930's architecture looking bizarrely out of place’.

’9am meet and 2 local buses took us to The Terracotta Warriors. This army was built during Emperor Qin Shi Huangdi's reign roughly 2200 years ago. He unified Chinas territories and standardised the written language. The discovery was made by farmers digging a well in 1974 and has since become Xi’an’s biggest tourist attraction.’
