China

"China's vastness cannot be imagined in miles. Its beauty cannot be captured in photos. Its changes are too swift for definition. Now is the time to see China; it is a country in motion and will not hold still. To be among the people of China is to feel the energy of evolution. Cities are filled with bicycles jingling with an intense human spirit; the slower pace of the countryside is quickening. A trip on the great Yangtze River through the heart of the country reveals both old and new, enduring and vibrant." - TAUCK
