Measuring in at 3,915 miles long, the Yangtze is the longest river in Asia and the fourth longest river in the world.
Pretty impressive by anyone’s standards.
And since the best way to see China’s sights is experience them, no trip to this vast country would be complete without a cruise down the Yangtze.
One of the most popular routes is between Chongqing and Yichang. Qatar Airways actually flies from Doha to Chongqing so it’s a good place to start your journey through China.
Fly to Chongqing, witness the giant Buddha in Leshan and trek up the Emei Shan Mountain before you embark on your cruise down one of the world’s most magnificent rivers.
Walk the Great Wall of China
Sweeping all the way along the historical northern borders of China, the Great Wall is truly a wonder of the world.
The building of this incredible feature of human construction began more than 2000 years ago but now it’s a must-see on any trip to China. It’s actually easily accessible from Beijing and you can either visit independently or with a tour guide.
Just remember that due to its age, some sections can be steeper and more hazardous than others. However, take a good pair of walking boots and you’ll stand in good stead.
Don’t forget to bring your camera either – you’ll want something to remember the fantastic scenery by.

“Touristy” has become a dirty word among travellers, but the curious thing is that the word so accurately describes some of the most popular activities in the most popular destinations around the world. For example, people going to Paris might want to climb the Eiffel Tower, or someone going to London for the first time might want to ride the London Eye. Now, there’s nothing wrong with these sorts of activities – they’re famous and “touristy” for a reason, after all! But many travel destinations known for one or two things in particular are also home to some fantastic sights and attractions that it would be a shame to miss on vacation. Here are five examples of popular destinations, and how to enjoy them beyond the obvious attractions.
One of the most captivating and popular travel destinations on the planet, Paris is known specifically for a few attractions: the aforementioned Eiffel Tower, the Louvre museum, and the general café scene. And more than most locations, Paris can perhaps best be enjoyed by those who just soak it all in, so to speak. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t a few hidden attractions and sights worth seeing.
The best thing to do to enjoy genuine Paris is to ask locals where they best like to eat (rather than taking the advice of Yelp or popular travel sites). However, another experience to put on your checklist is a stroll through the Montmartre area, where you’ll find an incredible range of culture and artistic activity. Visit the Sacre-Coeur Basilica for one of the most incredible, little-known attractions in town.
Cape Town, South Africa
Cape Town seems to be a more popular travel destination every year, though the truth is many people who want to go there can barely tell you why! The city just offers such a unique and beautiful image that people can’t help but want to see it in person, and then of course there is a great reputation for beach activity and the bar and nightlife scene. But what should you actually put on your Cape Town to-do list?
As with Paris, you can often best enjoy Cape Town by just soaking it all in. But there are a few specific activities to put on your list as well. First off, it’s a shame to visit this city and not take in its jazz scene, which is both traditionally vibrant and wonderfully unique. Additionally, consult Time Out’s list of “hidden waters” beaches, such as Beta Beach and Oudekraal, where you can escape the main tourist crowds and enjoy raw beauty and tranquillity.
As is the case with each city on this list, Londonis home to some truly breathtaking sites and historical locations. When visiting London, many people think first of the House of Parliament, Big Ben, or even the visual landmark of the London Eye. As for activity, the city is recognized for everything form pub crawls to museum visits! However, a great visit to London is often marked by visiting annual events and competitions that occur in the city.
The best examples are in popular sports, where events such as the Wimbledon Championships for tennis, or the FA Cup Final for football draw enormous crowds of locals and tourists alike. However, there are plenty of other exciting events that pass through London once a year. Poker players, for example, have a great deal to enjoy in London each February and March. The partypoker-sponsored National London WTP event has become an extremely enjoyable place to easily experience a professional poker atmosphere. It’s always simpler to just play a few hands with the partypoker iPhone app, but for true poker players and competition lovers, nothing beats this sort of live event that has become a mainstay on the London calendar.
Like Paris, Rome is best known for a few historical sites (such as the Colosseum) and an endless array of decadent modern cafés. And also as with Paris, these sites certainly aren’t to be ignored. But there is a great deal more to a trip to Rome than simply following the flocks of tourists that have been there before you!
Talking to locals is again a good idea if you’re looking for the best places for genuine local food (or coffee, for that matter), but there are also a few specific ways to enjoy the area beyond the obvious. First off, try to visit the popular attractions early in the morning or late in the evening to avoid enormous crowds. The Trevi Fountain, in particular, can be breathtaking to visit when you’ll be at least somewhat close to alone. Beyond this tip, the best tip in visiting Rome is to allow yourself to get lost down its side streets and alleys, finding quaint, incredible shopping and eating destinations. And when you just need to get away from the crowds, head out of town to the beautiful, cliff-side Anzio beach.
