Want to go to China, but don't know where to start? This tour package is the one for you. Covering five incredible destinations, the Classic China Tour offers everything from mountain getaways to a ride on the fastest train in the world!
You'll start your guided tour in the capital, Beijing, where you'll first visit the city's main attraction, the immense imperial complex of the Forbidden City. We'll then transport you just outside of Beijing and back in time hundreds of years to the Great Wall, where you can walk along the ancient ramparts of this wonder of the world. Your visit to Beijing will also include visits to remarkable religious sites such as the Temple of Heaven, the impressive classical gardens of the Summer Palace, and state-of-the-art sports venues from the 2008 Olympics. You'll also have the opportunity to jaunt around local neighborhoods in a rickshaw, witness astonishing acrobatic performances, and feast on exceptional, authentic Chinese cuisine.
Once in Xi'an, you will finally find out what the big fuss is about, after seeing Emperor Qin Shihuang's Terracotta Warriors for yourself. Afterward, you can take a bike ride around the ancient capital's 600-year-old city walls, visit the iconic Big Wild Goose Pagoda, and explore Xi'an's colorful Muslim Quarter.
Guilin is famous for its stunning scenery, and you will start off your visit to this area via a hike around the world-renowned Longji Rice Terraces. You'll then be able to take in Guilin's breathtaking mountain landscape from the comfort of the Li River cruise, which will transport you to the countryside town of Yangshuo. Here, you'll explore shimmering karst caves and ride on a bamboo raft along the bucolic Yulong River.
The final leg of your tour will take you to the futuristic city of Shanghai, where you can take in views of Pudong New Area's many skyscrapers while walking along the riverfront promenade of the Bund. Shanghai is also home to peaceful gardens like Yuyuan Garden, historic canal towns like Zhujiajiao Ancient Water Town, and the quaint, winding lanes of the French Concession.
As always, we can customize your tour to suit to your individual preferences; simply ask your agent!
