This 15-day tour is perfect for those who really want to take their time and see some of the best of what China has to offer. Over the course of your trip, you'll experience China both past and present, from ancient Buddhist carvings in Luoyang to Shanghai's mind-bogglingly fast maglev train.

Start your journey in China's capital city, Beijing, where you'll tick sights like the Great Wall and the Forbidden City off your bucket list. From Beijing, you'll travel to Luoyang, one of the four great ancient capitals of China and site of the 1,700-year-old Longmen Grottoes, full of intricate Buddhist carvings.Your next stop is another ancient capital, Xi'an, home to the world-famous terracotta warriors. Be sure to get your picture taken in front of the warriors for that essential Facebook profile picture!

Having immersed yourself in history, it's time for something a little bit different. In Chengdu, you'll have the opportunity to get up close and personal with China's adorable "national treasures": the giant pandas. Of course, Chengdu is also famous for its food and you'll get to sample some of the city's famously fiery dishes.

Your journey comes to a close in the bustling modern metropolis of Shanghai. But don't worry, it's not all skyscrapers and urban jungle. You'll also visit the outskirts of Shanghai to see the sleepy, canal-crossed water towns of Suzhou and Tongli.

This amazing China adventure is suitable for travelers of all ages. As with all of our itineraries, this tour can be customized to suit your needs.
