This tour will take you to Beijing, Xi'an and Shanghai, otherwise known as China’s Golden Triangle. You will also board a cruise ship that will take you all the way along the Yangtze River.
Your Beijing adventure will feature must-see sights like Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City, as well as excursions around the city streets to see what day-to-day life is like for the people of the city.
No Beijing-based itinerary is complete without a trip to the Great Wall of China. The Mutianyu section is a lot of fun. When you’re finished taking in the beautiful views, you can head back down in a toboggan!
Despite the fact that your trip to Xi’an will be packed full of activities, you will probably find yourself more relaxed by the end of it. You’ll visit Qin Shihuang’s Tomb, the Terracotta Warriors, and practice tai chi on the city walls.
In Chongqing, you will climb aboard a five-star ship for a half-week voyage. We feel that the Century cruise line offers great value for money, but as always, every aspect of your itinerary is customizable, so let us know if you have a preference.
When you wake up in Shanghai, the first thing you will do is stroll along the gorgeous waterfront. With one-hundred-year-old buildings on one side, and super-modern skyscrapers on the other, Shanghai’s skyline is like nothing you have seen before.
