Victoria Harbour

The vision over Victoria Harbour from Victoria Peak is to Hong Kong as climbing the Great Wall is to China; it offers the iconic viewpoint over Hong Kong's "high rise" to achievement and wealth.

Victoria Peak is the finest place to get a bird's eye view of Hong Kong. Viewed from the top, both day and night are worth taking in. See high-rise structures around the hectic Victoria Harbour broadening out towards Mainland China. At night the setting is beautiful, when the Symphony of Lights of numerous buildings gets started.

The Potala Palace in Lhasa

The Potala Palace is a representation of Tibet. In 1994 it was acknowledged as a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site. It is an enormous treasure house of resources and articles from Tibetan history, faith, philosophy and art. The palace is widely known for the valuable figures, paintings, scriptures, Buddhist statues, murals, antiques, and religious jewellery contained inside.

The Yellow Mountains

In Eastern China, neighbouring Shanghai and Hangzhou, Yellow Mountain Scenic Area entices tourists with its five marvels: sun rises, seas of clouds, oddly-shaped rocks, warped pine trees, and hot springs. The Yellow Mountains are the most renowned peaks in China, and one of China's three best national parks.

The Forbidden City in Beijing

It was formerly a "palace city" where regular society were prohibited admission. An excessive demonstration of prehistoric Chinese construction, over 8,000 lodgings with golden rooftops are stylishly designed and tinted in reds and yellows.

The Forbidden City was royal palace to the Ming and Qing Families for 560 years until 1911. Now recognised as ‘the Palace Museum' among Chinese, it is a treasure house of Chinese cultural and historic relics. It is accepted as one of the five most important palaces in the world (with the Palace of Versailles, Buckingham Palace, the White House, and the Kremlin)

The Great Wall of China

One of the iconic symbols of China, the Great Wall is the lengthiest fortification on the planet, an overwhelming feat of ancient defensive construction. Its snaking path over rough country and sheer elevations makes for stunning scenery. It warrants its place amid "the New Seven Wonders of the World" and UNESCO World Heritage Sites in China.

The wall reaches from China’s western border to the east shore, making it around 3,100 miles, but the most cohesive and best unspoiled segments are near to Beijing.
