Our experience in China stretches back to when Mao was still in power, when his eponymous suits were de rigueur and the Little Red Book was more than just a tourist souvenir. Yet we've never stopped rediscovering this fascinating country and unearthing new gems. Our team in China will take great pleasure in helping you get beneath the skin of this fascinating country.
In Beijing we can get you behind-the-scenes access to doors that are closed to most in the Forbidden City. Or for those of a more theatrical bent, we can arrange for you to attend the Beijing Opera training school and experience everything from the authentic costume, to the magnificent face painting.
In Hong Kong, learn how to make renowned Chinese dim sum. Reward yourself afterwards by trying your own creations with the chef over lunch. A cup of Chinese tea can be enjoyed everywhere in China, but for a unique experience visit Shanghai's oldest teahouse with an expert tea master, to guide you through the different flavours.
For those who feel the 'need for speed' we can arrange for you to test drive a car on Shanghai's Formula 1 track. Or if you are more interested in some of China's ancient arts and secrets, then how about a Feng Shui lesson with a Master?
Further a field, be enlightened by a ceremony performed by a monk reciting special scriptures in the Tibetan capital of Lhasa, said to bring wealth and happiness.
Whichever part of China you are exploring, you can always have peace of mind that our local team are on hand to ensure that everything goes smoothly and you get the most out of your visit.
