China is a destination of many contrasts; a country with one foot in the past and a hand reaching towards a bold and innovative future. From ancient wonders to neon marvels, and a whole lot in between, this 16 day tour will showcase the very best China has to offer in one thrilling package.

Beijing, Shanghai, Xi’an, Hangzhou, Yichang, Chongqing… this trip covers it all. Step back in time with a visit to the UNESCO listed Forbidden City, a vast complex once home to 24 successive emperors; enjoy a stroll through impressive Tiananmen Square; and fulfil that lifelong dream to walk along the remarkable Great Wall. In Xi’an, the Terracotta Warriors and Horses are waiting to blow your mind. See cultural relics at the Henan Provincial Museum or Zhengzhou Museum; enjoy a boat ride on the beautiful West Lake of Hangzhou; and admire the futuristic Shanghai skyline from The Bund. When it seems the trip can’t get any better, it then takes to the mighty Yangtze River for a four night 5-star cruise. Along the way you’ll witness grand cities, remote villages, and towering mountain ranges! Want to delve a little deeper? An amazing range of optional tours are also available.
