China has grown in leaps and bounds over the past half a century and its cities have reflected this progress. Despite embracing modernity, the Chinese still respects their cultural heritage and traditions which have kept them united for several centuries. A tour of China is an opportunity to explore a nation which is rapidly modernising but still staying true to its roots. The combination of the culture, modern buildings and state of art road network, which are just a few things one simply cannot miss out on. Don’t forget that as with most of our tours, there’s the option of being matched with a roommate to take avoid the single room supplement.



Shanghai is a well planned port city located where Yangtze River pours into the East China Sea.
