The Best of Luxury Travel in China

Vast landscapes that stretch from shimmering seas across windswept steppes, carefully tended fields, wild forests, soaring mountains – China’s scenery alone makes it worth venturing to the Far East. With a rich tapestry of history dating back more than 5,000 years, this is a destination that demands deeper exploration. Whether you’re planning a stay at a traditional Chinese hotel, or looking for the best of luxury travel in China, you’ll be in for
a wondrous adventure.

Officially known as the People’s Republic of China, the country is at once mesmerising and full of seeming contradictions. The world’s most populous country, comprising of 22 provinces including Taiwan, four municipalities, five autonomous regions and the two special administrative regions of Hong Kong and Macau, the Middle Kingdom is a mix of massive urban metropolises and remote rural landscapes. 



China has fascinated and bewildered visitors for centuries and the bewilderment continues today making the assistance of a professional concierge or travel service essential to enjoy the best of this vast country. Accommodation in China offers the full bandwidth of options to suit every type of traveller, and Secret Retreats has curated a collection of Chinese traditional hotels and luxury boutique hotels china-style, giving guests a true sense of heritage and place.

Rich in heritage and cultures, ancient, modern and natural wonders can all be enjoyed on the same itinerary, sometimes all within a single destination! From the riveting UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Beijing to the sprawling modern cities of Shanghai and Hong Kong filled with towering skyscrapers, which are interlaced with narrow, winding streets of yesteryear, urban life in China is a blend of old and new.

Further afield, small historic towns are strewn across China’s immense countryside, replete with indigenous cultures, languages, and local cuisine, propose an altogether different yet inspiring experience filled with legends and myths.

The possibilities in China are endless... as is accommodation across the country.

Partir?...
oui mais où ?

Historiquement, la « Grande Chine » rassemblait la Chine continentale, Hong Kong, Macao,Taïwan et ses îles voisines. Fier de son histoire vieille de plus de 5 000 ans, officiellement dénommé République Populaire de Chine, ce pays fascinant et plein de contradictions est, avec l'Inde, le plus peuplé au monde. Comprenant 22 provinces, 4 municipalités, 5 régions autonomes et 2 régions administratives spéciales, le « Royaume du Milieu » est autant rural qu’urbain.

Riche d'une histoire foisonnante et d'un patrimoine exceptionnel, ce vaste empire a depuis des siècles passionné et déconcerté les visiteurs. Qu’il s’agisse des fascinants sites inscrits au patrimoine mondial de l’Unesco à Pékin ou des modernes mégapoles tentaculaires de Shanghai et Hong Kong où les gratte-ciel toujours plus nombreux s’enchevêtrent dans les vieilles rues étroites et tortueuses, la vie citadine en Chine est un mélange d’ancien et de nouveau. Plus loin, avec leurs légendes et leurs mythes, les petites villes historiques disséminées à travers l’immense campagne chinoise offrent une grande diversité de cultures, de langues et de cuisines locales, proposant ainsi des expériences totalement différentes mais toujours passionnantes. En Chine, les opportunités de découvertes sont sans limites.
