China is a vast country with plenty to see and do, from the bustling metropolises of Beijing and Shanghai, to the stunning natural landscapes of Yunnan and Xinjiang. If you're looking for a taste of China's amazing diversity, here are some of the most beautiful and unmissable natural highlights.

For incredible mountain scenery, head to Zhangjiajie National Park in Hunan Province. The park is home to the world-famous Huangshan Mountains, made famous by the surreal 'Avatar' landscape scenes filmed there. If spectacular canyons are more your thing, check out Jiuzhaigou Valley National Park in Sichuan Province - located in the heart of the Tibetan Plateau, the park is home to some of the deepest and most colourful canyons in the world.

For a serene and stunningly beautiful river journey, take a trip down the Li River in Guangxi Province. The 83-mile route from Guilin to Yangshuo winds its way through dramatic karst peaks, making for some unforgettable views. If you're looking for an active adventure, China has plenty to offer too. Hiking and camping are popular activities in the many beautiful national parks, while those looking for a more adrenaline-fuelled experience can try their hand at white water rafting or mountain biking.

Whatever your interests, China is sure to have something to amaze and inspire you. So why not plan a trip to this incredible destination and explore all that it has to offer?
