An Ancient & Modern Empire

China transports us into an exciting and vivid world where crowds of pedestrians thread their way through honking traffic, ubiquitous bicyclists carry two or three riders, and street food vendors claim the sidewalks in front of global enterprise headquarters. Burgeoning and madly cacophonous, this enormous country has built itself up layer by lasting layer, with highlights of its 5,000-year-old culture still visible today. Year by year, China becomes even easier to travel, allocating billions of dollars to improve and expand its vast network of roads, railways and airports.
