Join us on a holiday to China

A mesmerising mix of man-made sights and astounding natural wonders, where skyscrapers rub shoulders with temples and gardens, China is as diverse as it is fascinating. Captivating, mysterious and wholly a world away from the West, tours of China are a joy to experience.

Walk with the ghosts of emperors on the Great Wall and gaze through time at some of the best historical remains of China in Beijing. The home of world-famous sites including the Temple of Heaven, Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City, only a few places on earth can match the remarkable historic treasures of Beijing, although China’s past remains ever-present in its progressive and futuristic present.

Explore the streets of Shanghai’s glass and steel razzmatazz and take in the sounds of the bustling bazaars and street markets. Stroll along the promenade beneath the buildings of the ancient Bund, and admire the glitzy skyline of towering skyscrapers including the iconic, rocket-shaped TV Tower. Catch your breath in Shanghai's Old City as you stroll around the tranquil pools of the Yu Garden.

Take a cruise on the ageless Yangtze river, witnessing the spectacular Three Gorges Dam - an engineering marvel - and discover a land rich in myth, legend and stunning scenery.

Travel with Newmarket Holidays and sample rural Chinese life as you visit one the country’s most beautiful cities, Guilin, surrounded by brilliant green mountain landscapes.

Wherever you holiday in China, from cities and temples to rivers and hills, our friendly, experienced Tour Managers are there to guide you along the way. Savour the pleasures of observing a totally different way of life with Newmarket Holidays and create memories from the Far East that will remain with you for many years to come.
