The Chinese culture is one of the most distinctive in the world. In addition to bustling metropolises like Beijing, Shanghai, and Hong Kong, China is also home to stunning mountain ranges, rivers, valleys, and plains in the west and south. Micro-cultures, languages, cuisines, and ethnicities abound throughout China.

This is a land with many layers, where everything has a tale to tell. With tips on what to do, how to get around, how to remain secure, how to save money, and much more, our travel guide to China can help you plan your trip to this massive country (there are over a billion people here covering 9.5 million square kilometers).
