Why do we call Beijing, Xi’an and Shanghai ‘the Golden Triangle?’ The answer is simple; if you can only visit three Chinese cities, these are the ones you must see. Well, that, and if you join them up on a map, they make a triangle shape! Beijing is full of hidden gems. You’ll get to know them up-close-and-personal during your rickshaw ride through the city’s ancient alleyways....

Zhujiajiao is the closest and most touristed water town near Shanghai. A good choice if you don't have a lot of time. It includes a canal boat ride and you get a chance to stroll the streets of the village. But if you do want to make a longer day of it we would recommend our Tongli Water Town / Suzhou one day tour from Shanghai, or our Two Water Towns in one day tour.

This tour is perfect for those who enjoy a full-on hike followed by an afternoon of relaxation. Jinshanling offers the best views of the Great Wall. Some portions are restored, but others grow wild, so climbing there is not for the faint-hearted! There is nothing better than a morning hike, followed by a few hours soaking in a mineral-rich pool.
This day trip is packed full of historical and religious significance. Your first stop, the Longmen Grottoes, are a sight to behold, both from the outside and within! Despite the ‘long men’ (huge statues of Buddha and his disciples) who welcome you on your arrival, ‘Long Men’ is actually Chinese, not English! The name translates as ‘Dragon’s Gate’. The White Horse Buddhist...
Those that are serious about their Emei Shan experience stay at the peak, and some even get up before dawn to see the sunrise. Realize that as they have a captive market, hotels at the top offer average service at best, with greatly inflated prices, in comparison to their competition outside the park gate.
