Instagrams of the Week: China

May 1, 2015 Mark Bonington

From the architectural awe of the Great Wall to the natural majesty of the Yellow Mountains, China is a land full of incredible sights. It's little wonder the culture and landscape have fascinated visitors for centuries. This week, we shared some of the amazing snapshots taken by our travellers. Scroll down and see China through their eyes.

The peaceful Yangshuo County, beautifully captured by @lindsey_nicholls. The perfect place to take in nature's serenity.

@raveneyephotography explored some of the lesser-known landscapes around The Great Wall. China is full of mysteries beyond what you'd expect, making it perfect for the adventurous traveller.

The Longji Rice Terraces are named “the dragon’s backbone” because the tiered terraces resemble a dragon's scales, while the peaks look like its spine. Stunning regram from our own @joffierski.

The winding Great Wall of China, taken by traveller Zara B. Built primarily during the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644 AD), the wall stretches a total of 8,851km (5,500 mi).

Wrapping up our week in China, we have the majestic Huangshan from traveller Karyne C. Known as the Yellow Mountains, they are a favourite subject in traditional Chinese art and poetry.
