Get under the skin of China's fascinating centuries-old culture with this alternative tour. Discover its unprecedentedly rich history and explore the splendour of its rural countryside. Relax in the romantic coastal town of Xiamen. Stay with a Hakka family in a traditional earthen roundhouse. Trek through Wuyi Mountains and taste its ancient oolong tea. Bamboo-raft down Nine Curves River. Explore the whitewashed, black-tiled homes of feng shui villages in Huangshan, and climb the crooked, supernatural peaks of Yellow Mountain, poking through the ethereal cloud sea. Be swamped by the enormous metropolis of Shanghai, and discover its Ming era gardens, Buddhist monasteries and colonial architecture.

We will tailor this trip to you. Change anything - from excursions to accommodation to places visited.
