China is one of the oldest civilizations with friendly people and many of the world’s most famous archeological and geographic treasures such as The Great Wall, the Terra-Cotta Warriors & Horses, and the Yangtze River. For visitors who prefer the bustling city and nightlife one can also find spectacular architecture and towering skylines in Shanghai and Beijing as well as the most funky, exclusive or exotic restaurants and bars.

Ruby Roads combines the adventure of a new culture with the comforts of home to provide you with a travel experience you will remember. The official spoken language in China is Mandarin Chinese. Although English is gaining popularity, the majority of the population speaks little to no English. Our travel concierges are here to help you communicate 24/7.
