Rating: ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ – 5 adventure travel stars

China is without question one of the premier adventure travel destinations if you’re interested in rich cultural experiences. It has one of the earliest civilizations known to man, and it was ruled for thousands of years by imperial dynasties until 1911.

There is so much culture to explore that it can be quite overwhelming, but incredibly exciting at the same time. You’ll be bumping into history everywhere you go. And then there’s the beauty of the graceful dances, enchanting songs and the unbelievable displays of the martial arts.

When in China you can expect a variety of mouth-watering cuisine as you go from region to region with staples of rice and noodles to be expected. Traditional Chinese foods are based on opposite flavors where cold balances hot, fresh balances pickled and the mild flavors balance the spicy ones. You’re in for a real treat.

The magnitude of the amazing Chinese culture is far too vast to do it justice in a brief synopsis. Suffice it to say that China is a land of wonder and mystery that you have to see to believe.
