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.
It only takes an hour-and-a-half to get to The Great Wall from Beijing’s city center, and the Mutianyu section comes highly recommended. You know what they say, “you haven’t been to China, unless you have visited the Great Wall.”
For most people, the name Xi’an evokes images of the staggering Terracotta Warriors. After your trip, the name will bring back countless memories of other adventures: cycling the city walls, exploring the Muslim quarters, and tasting delicious local delicacies, to name but a few.
Wrap up your trip in Shanghai, the most populated city proper in the world (and therefore one of the most diverse.) Stroll along the futuristic waterfront one day and visit the traditional Chinese Yuyuan Gardens the next; you may feel like you have stepped back in time.
As always, we can customize your tour to suit to your individual preferences, simply ask your agent!
