Roam around one of China's 700 nature preserves in a country that boasts more wildlife than any other in the world.
Wander the vastness of the Gobi Desert and skirt the darkness of history while exploring the assault on Nanking, and be shaken by observations of death during the upheavals of the Red Guard.
Go riding with Ghengis Khan, explore the Forbidden City, and walk along sections of the Great Wall that are seldom visited.
You can taste and smell the food as it is cooked in alleys and inns, reach down and touch relics older than most of Europe, and enjoy the sights and the sounds of the Dragon Boat Festival.
