You can experience China’s ancient culture by walking on the Great Wall of China, viewing the impressive Terracotta Warriors or visiting the Forbidden City. From spirituality to huge modern cities, China is a country full of great contrasts.
We have picked the best places to stay in some of the major cities of China.
Located two minutes from the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square, The Peninsula is one of the most emblematic hotels in the capital. It stands out for its spectacular Chinese-style entrance.

Sheraton Huzhou has an unusual design and is in the form of a ring rising from the south bank of Taihu Lake in Huzhou. It offers easy access to the nearby hot springs and bamboo forests.
The St. Regis Shenzhen is located on the 28 upper floors of Kingkey 100, the tallest building in Shenzhen. The hotel’s 28-meter indoor pool comes with floor-to-ceiling windows that offer fantastic views of the city.
The Okura Garden Hotel is located in the heart of the old French Concession west of the Huangpu River. It was built by the French between 1924 and 1926 and the decor reflects the hotel’s French heritage. The Shanghai Municipality considers the Okura Garden Hotel to be an architectural heritage site.
Novotel Xinqiao is a short walk from Tiananmen Square, the Forbidden City and the Temple of Heaven. The hotel features three restaurants, a lounge bar, a health centre, a spa, a sauna, a tennis court and other facilities. The metro station is only a 10-minute walk and has easy access to the shopping district as well as to business and government buildings.
Each of these territories offers a unique experience: Hong Kong is an economic hub of lights, skyscrapers and non-stop action with a British influence; Macau is often called the Las Vegas of Asia and overflows with casinos, nightclubs, drinks and debauchery; and Tibet is an extraordinary mountainous wonder on the northern side of the Himalayas that was once the winter residence of the Dalai Lama.
China’s capital is an imposing metropolis of skyscraper buildings and non-stop action. It’s the place to go for historic sites like the Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square, The Great Wall, the Summer Palace, Mao Zedong’s mausoleum, the Temple of Heaven and the Ming tombs.
The coastal city of Shanghai is East China’s financial hub and transport center. With 24 million inhabitants and growing, it’s also the nation’s most populated city. Sky-high buildings line the waterways creating the iconic Lujiazui skyline. Within its borders you’ll find the The Bund, Nanjing Road, the Jade Buddha Temple, Zhujiajiao water town, the Oriental Pearl TV Tower and Disneyland Park.
Chengdu is the attractive capital of Sichuan province. A mix of pagoda temples and high rise buildings line the banks of this economic center. It’s the fifth-largest city in China and, while it has been privy to development, holds a wealth of natural beauty including Mount Qingcheng and the Sichuan Giant Panda Sanctuary.
The city of Xi’an is rich in history and archeological discovery. Located in central China and surrounded by a well-preserved city wall, it’s perhaps most famously known as the site of the Terracotta Army. This is a series of detailed, life-sized terracotta statues that date back more than 2,000 years. Other highlights include Giant Wild Goose Pagoda, Small Wild Goose Pagoda, Stele Forest and Daming Palace National Heritage Park.
The autonomous territories of Hong Kong, Macau and Tibet belong to the People’s Republic of China. While they’re destinations in their own right, they should not be missed if you’re visiting China.
