Flying into China from Australia will likely land you either at Beijing, Shanghai or Hong Kong, which conveniently are the three biggest cities in China. Take time to create an itinerary as there is so much to see and do at each of these cities. But don’t forget to visit star attractions in other parts of the country such as the Great Wall of China.
Beijing is the capital of China and is home to two of the most visited Chinese landmarks, Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City also known as the Palace Museum. For a quieter atmosphere, stop by at the Temple of Heaven or the Summer Palace, both of which are great for a bit of solitude and mediation, especially as the rest of the city is alive with vibrant noises, sights and smells.
Board a sleeper bus and travel to Shanghai, where sensible walking shoes and a large appetite are a must. Take a walk around the older parts of the city and try Shanghainese cuisine, which is surprisingly dominated by steamed seafood dishes. Nanjing Road is a long, busy road of shops, ranging from small boutiques, vendor stalls and upscale boutiques.
Hong Kong is the cosmopolitan centre of China. With its long history of British occupation, Hong Kong has become one of the most urbanised cities in Asia. To make sightseeing more convenient, make sure to purchase an Octopus payment card, a smart card which allows you access to the city’s public transportation, when travelling around the city. Shopping is definitely a must in Hong Kong where prices for luxury items are generally cheaper than Europe. There are also many interesting heritage sites to visit, such as the Temple of Ten Thousand Buddhas and the Po Lin Monastery.
But don't forget to visit star attractions in other parts of the country such as the Great Wall of China, or pop over to Macau - one of Asia's newest and brightest entertainment hotspots!
