About the Region

About the Region

China is a land of history and refinement unparalleled in the world. Attentive visitors are immersed in a sea of visual and cultural experiences unlike any other they may have had elsewhere. Each geographic area in China teems with its own identity as an energetic variation on the great theme of Chinese civilization. You will be amazed at how regions differ vastly yet express similar values and ideas. China's industrial and commercial real estate investment and development has been unsurpassed in the world for the past decade.

Begin touring in Hong Kong, the southern gateway to modern China and the mainland’s window to the world. Here, people are attracted by the dramatic scenery: the bustling harbor with its backdrop of skyscraper – covered hillsides, the rugged island of Lantau, and the New Territories, where traditional walled villages and ancestral temples continue to exist alongside the new towns.

Shenzhen is the hyper modern city of mainland China just across the border from Hong Kong in Guangdong Province, on the Pearl River Delta. Shenzhen's location gives it a geographical advantage for economic development and transport. It has many of the world's tallest buildings and largest industrial parks. Since 1980, the first Special Economic Zone of China has made Shenzhen a highlight of China known for its rapid economic growth and development.

While retaining its time-honored culture, Japan rapidly absorbed Western technology during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Japan has maintained the delicate balance of economic development and keeping its ancient culture of cuisine, art, dress, architecture and aesthetics.

Tradition and modernity reign together in Japan.

Your trip centers on Tokyo, the capital of Japan and one of the world's largest cities. The city's history can be appreciated in districts such as Harajuku, Shibuya and Asakusa, and in many excellent museums, historic temples and gardens. Tokyo also offers a seemingly unlimited choice of shopping, entertainment, culture and dining to its visitors. Surprisingly, Tokyo also offers a number of attractive green spaces in the city center.
