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. That, and if you join them up on a map, they make a triangle shape!
Your guided tour will begin in the capital, Beijing, a city full of hidden gems. In addition to visiting stunning religious sites like the Temple of Heaven, the immense imperial complex of the Forbidden City, and the elaborate gardens of the Summer Palace, you'll get an intimate view of local life and culture via a rickshaw ride through the city's ancient alleyways.
Just a short distance from Beijing, we'll take you to the Mutianyu section of the Great Wall, one of China's most famous and awe-inspiring attractions. 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 dazzling Terracotta Warriors, an intricate stone army from the dawn of China's imperial era. After your trip, the name of this ancient capital will bring back countless memories of other adventures: cycling the city walls, exploring the Muslim Quarter, and tasting delicious local delicacies, to name but a few.
You'll wrap up your trip in the bustling metropolis of Shanghai, one of the world's most populated cities. Here, you'll stroll along the European-style promenade of the Bund, which overlooks the futuristic skyline of Pudong New Area, and get a sense of Shanghai's varied history by visiting the exquisite Yuyuan Garden and the French Concession's zigzagging alleyways.
