3 Reasons to Put China on Your Travel Bucket List

3 Reasons to Put China on Your Travel Bucket List Published on .

Great wall under sunshine during sunset | Just Fly Business Blog

In the past decade, the number of UK citizens visiting China has been on the rise, with a combination of more flight availability and easier routes to getting visas. China is a vast country, which means there are endless things to see, yet it’s often overlooked as a destination, with Brits more likely to visit neighbours such as Singapore and Hong Kong.

However, with business class flights that’ll take you into the country in 12 hours or so, it’s worth considering next time you’re looking at long haul holidays. Here are just a few reasons to visit.

Ancient history

Terracotta Warriors located at Xian

China’s culture dates back over 3,000 years, so there are few countries in the world who have such a long and colourful history. There are so many historic sights to see that it’s impossible to list them all, but most visitors will no doubt want to see:

  • Forbidden City – a 15th century palace that once housed the dynasties and governments of China
  • The Great Wall of China – more than 2,000 years old and often considered among the wonders of the world
  • Terracotta Army – one of the world’s most amazing archaeological sites, the Terracotta Army was made to guard the tomb of China’s first emperor
  • Potala Palace – a 13 storey high palace built for the Tibetan government in the 17th-century

Visiting certain areas of China is like stepping back into a mystical ancient world, making it the ideal destination for history buffs.

China has a rich cultural scene, with people who are proud of their traditions and who still practice many of the ancient arts. Fly to Beijing with British Airways and you can be in China’s cultural hub, visiting sites such as the Zhengyici Peking Opera Theatre where you’ll see traditional plays in a beautifully preserved wooden building. Or book a Chinese tea ceremony and learn more about where this tradition originates.

Natural beauty

With China becoming an industrial hub in recent decades, it’s easy to think of the country as a series of mega-cities. However, vast areas of China are completely unspoilt, from mountains to coastline, so you can get close to nature.

Take cheap business class flights to one of the major cities like Shanghai, and you’ll have a huge choice of train routes across the country, with fast and modern services. From Yalong Bay with its white sand beaches and clear blue seas, to Wuzhizhou Island, which is known as the Maldives of China, the coast is spectacular. China even has an emerging ski scene, with areas such as the Xiling Snow Mountain Ski Resort bringing a little bit of the Alps to the east, with miles of trails and thick powder.

If you’re thinking of visiting China or any other worldwide destination, simply visit for the best deals on premium travel. Or call the team on 0208 417 1366 and we can help you find the right itinerary.
