Who is Wendy Wu?
After completing her degree, Wendy Wu decided to go to Australia where she began working for American Express. During this time, she set up a programme to China for American Express and realised that her expertise and business acumen combined with a relatively untapped market were the perfect match for success in this field. She set up her own company in Australia in 1996 and expanded to the UK in 2005. Wendy Wu Tours is going from strength-to-strength and its success is being marked by an expansion to the United States, where the company will be opening offices in New York this autumn.

What would you say to UK travellers to encourage them to visit China?
China is a fascinating land of striking beauty which offers a myriad of possibilities for travellers. It is a country brimming with spectacular scenery, ancient monuments, undiscovered territories and amazing history. The sheer diversity of China’s terrain will take you from buzzing, cosmopolitan cities to isolated Ming-Dynasty villages where you can hear a pin drop. One of the most brilliant aspects about China is that it caters for a multitude of different tastes. History buffs will be intrigued by the ancient relics as they uncover a history spanning 5,000 years; the towering skyscrapers and pulsating nightlife of Shanghai will be a magnet for city slickers and animal lovers will not be able resist the adorable Pandas in Chengdu. For these reasons and many others, China has become one of the top travel destinations of 2010.
