China is one of the most diverse and vibrant countries of the world with a mix of modern entertainment centres, areas of unspoilt mountain regions and national parks to explore.

China’s capital city Beijing boasts all of the nightlife, cultural and entertainment options you'd expect from a cosmopolitan major city, and plays host to the world-renowned Beijing Opera and acrobatics of the Chinese State Circus.

There are a number of major cultural and religious festivals held in cities, towns and villages in China throughout the year. Some of the most notable of these include the Chinese New Year festival (usually held between late Jan and early Feb) and the dragon boat festival in May.
