China is off the scale massive, incredibly diverse and so much in constant change that one visit is just not enough. And, each visit is an adventure by itself. Delve into the cultural treasures of one of the world’s oldest civilizations like the Great Wall, the Terracotta warriors, the Forbidden City. Add to that the melting pot that is Shanghai, the food, its people and you will find that China offers something to everyone and there is plenty to learn.
Japan is a fascinating mix of ancient and modern, where glassy modern buildings are juxtaposed against living temples and shrines, where modern fashion meets traditional kimonos, where modern Japanese restaurants collide with age-old tea ceremonies, where you can visit an ultra modern Tokyo or Osaka and make a quick getaway to a remote village, hot spring spots and scenic countryside. All this is in harmonious confluence. This is the country where you can set the clock against the futuristic bullet trains. There is nowhere quite like Japan and it will spellbind you.
