From its pagoda-topped mountains to gleaming skyscrapers and ancient temples, China is a heady mix of imperial splendour, natural beauty and rapid development. Sip cocktails on Shanghai's postmodern Bund, uncover the Terracotta Warriors in Xi'an or just sit back and explore China through Beijing’s many delicious and vastly different regions.

Feel the imposing grandeur of Beijing landmarks like the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square, or head south for the ultra-modern skyscrapers, glamorous bars and tree-lined avenues of Shanghai.

By the grand old age of ten, your little darlings can probably ride a bike, do their times tables and beat almost everyone on the games console. But what if they could add sandboarding in the desert, going on safari in Singapore or climbing the Rockies to this list of achievements? Here are the ultimate travel experiences every child should do in their first decade.
Flights to China
The culture of modern China is a complicated blend of fervent capitalism and ancient tradition. Fast-paced and cosmopolitan, Shanghai’s skyscrapers loom above imperial temples and parks are filled with locals doing tai chi in Beijing. Muslim Xinjiang and Buddhist Tibet, like many of China's vast regions, have their own unique cultures and flavours to be discovered.
Things to do in China
Scale Hunan Province's sacred Hengshan Mountain, dotted with temples built into the cliffs, or hike the Tiger Leaping Gorge in Yunnan Province. Camp beneath the mystical towers of the Great Wall, cycle in the shadow of the limestone peaks around Yangshuo, or sail the mighty Yangtze from Chongqing.
