Holidays to China are fascinating affairs. The China of old: enigmatic, secretive and quietly powerful is today entering a new, dynamic, phase in its history. The old ways are being swept aside, and the country is opening up, as it strides purposefully into the 21st Century on the back of a tremendous economic boom. However, despite all the obvious changes the Middle Kingdom still holds true to many of its traditional values and there is a pervading sense of the established and ancient as you walk along the Great Wall, wander through the corridors of power in the Forbidden City or gaze at the Terracotta Army as it stands guard on its eternal watch.
