In the last few years we have run several fantastically successful trips to Sichuan/Tibet with five guides, and we all loved birding there so much that we have decided to extensively broaden our coverage. It is hard to know exactly what sets China apart, but with fascinating culture and great food along with pheasants, cranes, and mind-blowing migration, you have an alluring combination. For 2012, we have set departure tours to Sichuan and custom trips to Beidaihe. For 2013, we have also added fantastic and innovative new trips to Southeast China and Tibet. It is difficult for even the most single-minded birder not to be impressed by the cultural tourism sites here, and we recommend that you take some time to check some of them out.
