Instagrams of the Week: Adventures in China

January 15, 2016 Mark Bonington

There are more experiences waiting in China than you could ever hope to fill in a lifetime. Travel back in time with a history stretching back over 5,000 years all while experiencing cities that come straight from the future. China is massive on every scale, equipped with everything needed to suit all types of travellers.

When the legacy of an ancient past meets the pioneers of a modern age, the result is unmatchable.

In the northern Hunan Province, traveller @jcruxphoto watches the sunrise break over the rocks of Zhangjiajie National Forest Park.

Shanghai. A city inspired by the past and paving the way for China’s future. For @mamitatravel, it was love at first sight!

No trip to China is complete without a visit to the iconic Great Wall. The majority of what we see today was built during the Ming Dynasty to protect China from raids and invasions. This picture comes courtesy of traveller @blogmochilando.

“First time I saw the sunset in Hong Kong I got goose bumps,” recalls Wanderer-in-Residence Gary Arndt of @everythingeverywhere who took this shot of China’s densely populated metropolis from Victoria Harbour.

Traveller @ michael_libis enjoys a peaceful morning on the calm waters of the Li River in Yangshuo. This tranquil region is popular with both Chinese and international visitors.
