iVisa.com Recommends

China is a country that has earned a lot of fascination, especially with its utterly different culture dating back more than 5000 years. That's why each visit is a quite special experience. Exceptional palaces like the Forbidden City and Summer Palace in Beijing revive the days of China's rule by celestial emperors, concubines, and eunuchs.

Thanks to its size, China offers travelers an endless range of exploration. So whether you decide to travel aboard a classy cruise ship through the picturesque Yangtze gorges or simply seek out the calmness of an ancient temple, this country is full of incredible experiences.

The magnificent Great Wall of China is a perfect spot to start your adventure. It stretches more than 6,000 kilometers from the fortresses of Shanhaiguan. The most visited section of the wall is Badaling Pass northwest of Beijing. You can reach this part by public transportation or with an organized tour.

Other places you can visit in China are the Forbidden City & the Imperial Palace, the Terracotta Army, the Li River, the Yangtze River, and the Three Gorges.
