China is perhaps best known for its populous cities, where skyscrapers effortlessly mingle with ancient temples and beautiful city gardens. Yet, travel away from the cities and you enter stunning scenery of water towns, rivers, lakes and karst peaks, sculpted by water movement spanning millennia. Bordering a number of neighbouring countries, Yunnan Province has a diverse set of beautiful landscapes and cultures. Spend time in Kunming – the heart of Yunnan – before a three-night stay in UNESCO World Heritage listed Lijiang. In addition, experience a visit to Chengdu, home of the Panda Breeding Research Institute, as the final stop on this discovery of China’s highlights.
