Where emperors reigned
and dragons roamed

In China, red lanterns symbolize warmth, happiness, and good fortune.

The Great Wall and giant pandas, the imperial past and technological future: even if you haven’t been there (yet), China is already in your head, and maybe also your heart. With so many centuries of history and even more miles of landscape on offer, exploring China can be a challenge. Except with Cosa. Whether you’re in Beijing or Hong Kong, we make it as easy as ordering your favourite Chinese meal, although by the end of your trip, you’ll have a few of those.

The limestone scenery around Guilin is breathtakingly dramatic and the best way to see it is on a leisurely boat along the Li River.

Row upon row of soldiers buried to honour a long-dead emperor and yet somehow looking so lifelike. That’s the wonder of the Terracotta Army.

Hong Kong literally means ‘fragrant harbour’ and the former British colony still attracts visitors with its atmospheric smells, sights and sounds.

China facts

There are so many fun facts about China, it’s hard to know what to pick. Perhaps, that it’s the world’s most populous country (1.4 billion inhabitants) and the third largest in area. Or that it’s home to Mt Everest and borders on 14 other countries. Maybe it’s enough to know that the whole country has only one time zone. That’s one result of being a Communist state, the People’s Republic of China, that is governed from the capital in Beijing.
