China tours and holidays

Inspiring China tours and holidays at Asian Horizons

It is impossible to say that any one country is the most exciting destination on Earth given the abundance of vibrant cultures and intriguing people that colour our world, yet China is regarded by many as the centre of wisdom, a vision of beauty and a cradle of civilisation. Many travel companies offer ‘cultural’ tours that take people from one historic site to another, implying that ‘culture’ is about ‘history’. On the contrary! At Asian Horizons we believe Chinese culture is the living, breathing essence embodied in the multi ethnic peoples, diverse places, aesthetic art and distinctive cuisines.

To really understand the magic of China you have to awaken your senses. It’s not just about the beauty you see but also the objects you touch, the sounds you hear and the fragrances you smell. This is the concept we bring to all of our tours: To show you China in a way that is vibrant, enlightening above all, enjoyed at a leisurely pace! With a range of destinations and journey lengths to choose from, there’s something for everyone with our China tours and holidays today.
