The country is so vast--about 3,100 miles east to west and 3,400 miles north to south--that only a series of China luxury tour packages begin to skim the surface. Home to the world's highest point--Mount Everest at 29,035 feet in the Himalayas--and one of its lowest--the Turfan Depression at 505 feet below sea level in the Uighur Autonomous Region. With 8,700 miles of coastline and some 12,400 land borders, China has more than 4,000 years of recorded history.

China Luxury Tour Packages

Your choice of China luxury tour packages might focus on the famous Silk Road that reached 7,000 miles from Xian across Central Asia to the Mediterranean. At its beginning is the magnificent terracotta army of the first Qin emperor, uncovered only in 1974. A magnificent and picturesque route, the Silk Road is one of the more popular of China luxury tour packages for the best of reasons.

Another of China's exceptional sites, of course, is the famed Great Wall, built 2,000 years ago to protect China against Mongolians and other invaders. Visible from space, the Great Wall stretches like a dragon more than 4,100 miles across China. Despite much of it being in ruins and large stretches lost to time, the Great Wall of China is without doubt one of the world's most magnificent architectural achievements.

The famed Yangtze River winds 3,900 miles, and cruises along its picturesque banks are memorable indeed. From the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square in Beijing, to the old city and Bund of Shanghai, to the Mogao Caves of a Thousand Buddhas, China is a magnificent destination. Travel there is certain to be as memorable as you could ever hope.
