The journey from Lhasa to Everest Base Camp is one that you will cherish all your life. The tour starts at Lhasa to help you acquaint yourself to the higher altitude and to let you see some of the most popular attractions in Tibet.
Who isn’t familiar with attractions such as the Terracotta Army or the Great Wall of China? Who hasn’t heard of destinations such as Shanghai and Beijing? The Forbidden City? The Giant Panda? The Ming Dynasty? For a country as big as China, it is surprising to see that so many people aren’t aware of the magnificent wonders that it has on offer. Having Chinese food and exploring the Chinatown in your city doesn’t even count as coming to know China.
Shanghai is full of modern skyscrapers, high rises and buildings, but it doesn’t boast of as many must-visits places like NYC. Instead, it takes all the action down to its streets, the best venues to see daily life unfold in front of your eyes and explore Chinese culture at its very best.
Sure flying between those Chinese cities is an option, but when you’re visiting a country that has the third-largest railway system on the planet as well as a delightful mix of conventional trains and modern bullet trains, don’t you think it makes sense to add a train journey into your itinerary.
Adventurer Marco Polo introduced China to the world, and our love affair with this mysterious land hasn’t diminished ever since. Despite years of economic growth and modernization, China feels exotic and breathtaking, and its ancient traditions and rich culture still find a place in modern-day society.
