Later, the Ming Dynasty (1368–1644) is known for trade and exploration and during this time Beijing's famous architectural and cultural treasures, the Forbidden City and the Temple of Heaven, were built. Beyond the capital, China's other metropolitan drawcard is Shanghai. The skyline from The Bund is a spectacular tribute to engineering and neon.

Temples and teahouses to explore and of course, the Great Wall of China to walk. It's a misconception the Wall is an unbroken fortification – it's in sections; some of which are restored and heavy with tourists, others have a more authentic feel. Wherever you go, the food will be light years away from your local takeaway but that's the point. A holiday in China takes you far into another world.
