This tour through China has everything you could want in a China vacation: visits to ancient sites, thrilling experiences, opportunities to learn about the culture, authentic cuisine, and more. Start in Beijing, end in Shanghai, and overnight along the way in Xi’an, Chengdu, Hangzhou, and aboard a 3-night Yangtze River cruise.

As you walk along the Great Wall, marvel at its expansiveness. Also impressive are the Terracotta Warriors, built 2,000 years ago to protect the first emperor in his afterlife. You’ll stand in awe as you take in the life-size soldiers, chariots, and horses.

On your 3-night Yangtze River cruise, enjoy the spectacular beauty and tiny villages as you cruise through the Three Gorges. Take a walking tour of Shibaozhai and its 400-year-old pagoda built high on the cliffside. In Hangzhou, more scenic beauty awaits on your cruise on West Lake, surrounded by mountains on three sides and known for its picturesque landscape and collection of ancient bridges, causeways, temples, and palaces. Also visit Fei Lai Feng, a limestone mountain with over 300 stone statues dating from the 10th to the 14th centuries, and Lingyin Temple (Temple of Soul’s Retreat), one of China’s most famous Buddhist temples dating back 1,700 years.

Globus has included out-of-the-ordinary experiences, like a rickshaw ride through Beijing’s hutongs (ancient alleys) and a xiaolongbao lunch in Shanghai. Other thrilling experiences include a visit to the Giant Panda Research Base, a ride on the bullet train from Chengdu to Chongqing, a calligraphy class, sightseeing with Local Guides, and much more.

From the serene and picturesque landscapes to the vibrant cities and from the many historic sites to the modern accomplishments, this China tour is a once-in-a-lifetime vacation opportunity! SHIP INFORMATIONVictoria Anna
