China is immense: there are so many things to see, so many ports in which to dock, so many people to meet, and so many excursions to take to better understand these industrious people.
Everything here is new for a Westerner but you can’t say you’ve seen the world without taking a cruise to China. An immense territory that stretches from the snowy peaks of the world's tallest chains, to one of the most impenetrable deserts, to forests and the sea. Tea, rice and spices are grown across entire regions and form the basis of exports. But China also has a Western aspect, which is reflected in the gleaming glass skyscrapers of Shanghai. The capital Beijing is a megalopolis and Hong Kong is a dream reflected on the water of its bay. Everything is fascinating: the art, the traditional architecture, the martial arts, the fabrics, the wonderful food and even the modernity of cities still linked to an ancient past.
