Summary

Beijing to Bangkok overland does have a certain ring about it and this trip will not disappoint.
It takes in some of the greatest sites of China and South East Asia as well as visiting places
that most travellers never see. So if you want to see more than just the Great Wall, Pandas,
Three Gorges or the Terracotta Warriors, then you might consider this epic journey.
There are some great hikes on this trip, including climbing with all the pilgrims to the summit
temple of Emei Shan, or through the stunning “Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon”
landscapes of Wudan Shan, or hiking 2 days above the incomparable Tiger Leaping Gorge.
In Laos, we get to explore on foot the forests of the Nam Ha National Park and to see the
highlights of the Mekong, including the 4,000 islands.
But it’s the amazing architecture and religious buildings that will astound you along the way,
whether it’s the quiet beauty of Luang Prabang, the historic splendour of Angkor Wat or the
magnificence of the Forbidden City.
