Beijing is renowned for its opulent palaces, temples, parks and gardens, tombs, walls and gates, and its art treasures and universities have made it a center of culture and art in China. The city is also known for it’s cuisine, especially the very popular Peking Roast Duck. Additionally, it is famous for it’s opera, and Beijing opera is considered one of the highest Chinese cultural achievements. Besides an active night life scene, there are hundreds of tourist attractions within Beijing and surrounding it, including the Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square, The Temple of Heaven, The Summer Palace, The Ming Tombs, and The Great Wall of China.


Xi’an is the capital of the Shaanxi province, and it sits in the southern portion of the Guanzhong Plain. The city is surrounded by water and hills, and it’s geography makes it a suitable destination any time of the year
besides winter.

Xi’an retains many aesthetic characteristics of it’s past and many tourists appreciate it’s old world charm in comparison to other popular destination cities. Xi’an is known as the eternal city, and the changes in the city over time make it a living history book of sorts.


Lhasa Lhasa is rightly one of the most featured and dreamt-about cities in the world. This is not only because of its high altitude at 3,650 meters (11,975 feet) which means remoteness and limited accessibility, but also because of its over 1,000 years’ cultural and spiritual history which leaves an impressive heritage that has helped to create the romantic and mysterious Tibetan religion. Different from the inland cities and other places in that high land, Lhasa is unique with an allure all of its own. In the Tibetan language, Lhasa means the Holy Land or the Buddha Land. It is the center of Tibet’s politics, economy and culture. The city has also been appointed as one of the 24 historical and cultural cities of China. The splendor and grandeur of the Potala Palace remains a world-famous symbol of the enigmatic power of politics and religion in this region.
