Panjin Red Beach

Red romance

There’s no destination that sets the mood for love quite like Panjin Red Beach, a protected wetland in China’s northeastern Liaoning province. Every autumn, the beach turns red thanks to a type of algae that flourishes on its shores, transforming the entire area into a crimson paradise. The ephemerality of this phenomenon makes it a must-visit for travellers seeking natural magnificence. Time your visit at sunset to catch the sea of red reeds merging with vermillion skies.

Zhangye Danxia Geopark

A symphony of colours

Zhangye Danxia’s sandstone rock formations in Gansu are the closest thing to a rainbow manifested in solid form. They were created from the layering of sandstone and mineral deposits over millions of years, resulting in vibrant streaks as far as the eye can see. Explore this stunning topography at dusk or dawn, when the changing light transforms it into a symphony of colours. You can also see Zhangye Danxia in Zhang Yimou’s forthcoming film The Great Wall, featuring Matt Damon, Andy Lau and Eddie Peng.

798 Art Zone

Revolutionary chic

A military factory from the Cultural Revolution is the last place you’d expect to find art or beauty, but the 798 Art Zone in Beijing has both in spades. The decommissioned Beijing factory was taken over by avant-garde artists in the 1990s, and has since played host to huge exhibitions such as the Beijing Biennale. With its combination of German Bauhaus architecture and preserved Communist-era slogans that give it a Mao-kitsch feel, the former factory offers an industrial chic backdrop for experimental art.
