  • Great Wall, Mutianyu The Great Wall is the most supreme treasure of Chinese history and civilization. It is one of most enduring symbols for over 2000 years. It is built along an east-to-west line across the historical northern borders of China. The majority of the existing wall is from the Ming Dynasty. The travelogues of the 20th century further enhanced the reputation and the mythology of the Great Wall that the misconception of China wall being visible from the Moon or even Mars still exists.

  • Forbidden City, Beijing The Chinese imperial palace from the Ming dynasty to the end of the Qing dynasty is now the Palace Museum. It served as the home of emperors and their households as well as the ceremonial and political centre of Chinese government for almost 500 years.
    The Forbidden City remains important in the civic scheme of Beijing. The design was meticulously planned to reflect the philosophical and religious principles, and above all to symbolise the majesty of Imperial power. Almost all roofs in the Forbidden City bear yellow glazed tiles as yellow is the colour of the Emperor.

Ram Kapoor

I visited Shanghai on a business trip 3 months ago. One of my colleagues lost his luggage on arrival and got tensed. We called ICICI Lombard, our insurance provider, who compensated for the loss and allowed us to continue the trip with peace of mind. The entire process of making the claim was simple and easy


Raj Kundra

While visiting a Buddhist Temple in Beijing, I lost my balance and seriously injured myself on my last trip to China. Ultimately, I ended up in the hospital and the medical expenses were enough to scare me. Thanks to ICICI Lombard, who helped me to cover my hospitalisation expenses through a simple and easy claim.
