Many trips begin in Beijing, a microcosm of China where ancient history meets the modern world. Winding through its traditional hutongs (backstreets) reminds you of bygone dynasties, yet a visit to the Olympic Park showcases the country’s rapid change. Away from the busy streets and skyscrapers, the karst scenery and minority villages of Guangxi province are easily accessed via Guilin, while a Yangtze River cruise takes you through the jagged peaks and vertical cliffs of the Three Gorges.
