Travel content

If you long for a taste of China which celebrates the country’s often-forgotten imperial past and unique approach to medicine and healing then allow us to show you both with a little extra besides. Alongside the capital’s hunger for modernity sit stone walls and carefully preserved monuments from another age. Where Hutong alleyways wind their way through back streets under the shadow of sky-scrapers, ancient imperial courts and sacrificial temples nestle in amongst busy streets and where the art of Traditional Chinese Medicine still holds court alongside more modern alternatives. A China of historic intrigue and the pursuit of health and longevity. Discover the ancient past and medicinal wisdom of China.
