Discover the charm of a B&B
Holiday in a Bed and Breakfast in China
A visit to China is an out-and-out journey of discovery. Admire the permanently snow-topped summits of the Himalayas and the richly-coloured Inner Mongolian steppes. Or immerse yourself in giant, ultramodern cities, where it’s still possible to experience traditional life in quaint, hidden neighbourhoods. Some of China’s must-see highlights are the Great Wall of China, the Terracotta Army, giant pandas, the Great Buddha and the turbulent Yellow River. Stay in bed & breakfasts, boutique hotels and pensions, where you’ll be introduced to the real China.
Bed and Breakfast in Beijing
China has an illustrious history spanning numerous dynasties. The most glorious was the Ming Dynasty. The Great Wall of China, the Forbidden City, the Temple of Heaven and famous imperial tombs were all built under the rule of this monarchy. A number of these impressive sights are found in Beijing, so make sure that you see, touch and experience them. In the evenings, you can let your hair down at one of the many karaoke bars in the city. A visit to Beijing is often combined with a visit to Xi’an. The Terracotta Army, consisting of more than nine thousand life-sized statues of soldiers, horses and chariots – dating back to the time of the first Chinese emperor – was discovered in 1974 just outside this sub-provincial city.
B&B in Shanghai
Shanghai, with more than twenty million inhabitants, is China’s largest city. Along with ultramodern skyscrapers, motorways and a maglev train, you’ll find authentic herb and tea markets, balmy parks and hushed temples. Stroll along the historic boulevard of The Bund, from where you’ll have a fantastic view of the Pudong skyline that includes the Shanghai World Financial Centre and the famous Oriental Pearl Tower. Make time to see the Shanghai Museum, the Jade Buddha Temple, the Yuyuan Garden and the picturesque waterside villages just outside Shanghai. A luxurious high-speed train will transport you to the lovely historical city of Hangzhou within an hour. In this city, the West Lake, the Lingyin Temple and the Six Harmonies Pagoda are sights not to be missed.
Bed & breakfast in the Karst region
The town of Yangshuo is surrounded by a magical karst landscape of irregularly shaped, towering limestone formations. Here, you can go on a fantastic guided cycling tour or float down the Li River on a bamboo raft. Explore rice paddies and scenic spots where time seems to stand still, and climb the more than eight hundred steps up Moon Hill. At night, you can watch the famous Liu San Jie light show over the Li River or enjoy the energetic nightlife of this lively town. In Yangshuo Park, peep over the shoulders of gambling card players or admire people doing Tai Chi.
Bed and Breakfast in Tibet
Tibet, ‘the roof of the world’, has a fascinating effect on visitors. They praise its breath-taking views, precious monasteries and temples, charming villages and azure-blue holy lakes. For centuries, the capital Lhasa has been Tibet’s centre of politics, culture and religion. Its greatest attraction is the Potala Palace, the now disused winter palace of the Dalai Lamas. Nearby is the Drepung Monastery, dating back to 1416, still home to about seven hundred monks. En route to the Namtso saline mountain lake located at an elevation of 4718 metres, you’ll pass yak herders and the Yangpachen thermal springs. You’ll be tempted to take a dip in the hot spring water.
