Fly to cosmopolitan Shanghai for a three-night stay. On arrival, you will be transferred to your hotel.
❱ Hotel stay: Shanghai (3 nights)
Shanghai is China’s great metropolis, where east and west collide on streets lined with futuristic skyscrapers and 10thcentury temples. Start with a visit to the peaceful Yu Garden, pass through the bustling old town. Visit a Silk Museum to see the process of silk creation from beginning to end. View the city at night from the Huangpu River on a panoramic cruise. This evening, enjoy a meal of Shanghai cuisine.
Take a visit to Zhujiajiao, one of Shanghai’s neighbouring sleepy water towns. Afterwards see the antiquities of the Shanghai Museum and unwind in the People’s Square. Admire the magnificent architecture during a stroll along the Bund.
Fly to the scenic city of Guilin. Visit the Seven Star Park, which is not only home to two Giant Pandas but also has beautiful scenery to stroll through. You can also explore the spectacular formations of Seven Star Cave.
❱ Hotel stay: Guilin (1 night)
Take a relaxed cruise along the Li River to the charming village of Yangshuo. Around every river bend is a view to take your breath away as jagged karst peaks loom over rural scenes of lush greenery, grazing buffalo and local fishermen.
❱ Hotel stay: Yangshuo (2 nights)
Yangshuo sits in an exquisite rural location, surrounded by landscapes of jewel-green paddy fields and dramatic limestone karsts. Spend the morning exploring the countryside before having an afternoon at leisure. There are many optional activities available including cycling and rafting (at your own expense), or take a relaxing walk through the town.
Return to Guilin by road. Stroll around Ronghu Lake and admire the Sun and Moon Pagodas – two towering examples of traditional Chinese-Buddhist architecture. The South China Pearl Museum covers the fascinating 1,700- year history of pearling in the South China Sea. There are also beautiful pieces available to buy. Later stop for a photo opportunity on the banks of the Li River and meet a cormorant fisherman.
Fly to the ancient city of Xian. Stroll around the beautiful Little Wild Goose Pagoda before feasting on traditional Shui Jiao dumplings and watching a performance of Tang Dynasty dancing.
❱ Hotel stay: Xian (2 nights)
After their fortuitous discovery in the 1970s, the Terracotta Army of China’s first Emperor, Qin Shi Huang, has intrigued visitors ever since. Spend the morning viewing the enigmatic ranks of life sized warriors. Visit the workshop of the craftspeople who recreate Terracotta Warriors in the style of their ancient counterparts. Watch the skilled production process and buy a souvenir warrior to take home. Later stroll on the beautifully preserved 14thcentury city walls that enclose Xian’s old town.
Board the bullet train to Beijing, the capital of China. Enjoy a fascinating rickshaw ride through the warren-like hutongs, and visit a local family to gain a deeper insight into Chinese culture and local customs.
❱ Hotel stay: Beijing (3 nights)
This morning is dedicated to China’s most iconic sight – the Great Wall. Taking a walk on this incredible structure is the best way to appreciate both the sheer magnificence of the wall itself and the dramatic scenery that it crosses. Visit a jade factory where you can understand the delicate process of carving this stone. In the afternoon wander amongst traditional Chinese gardens and view the exquisite architecture in the Summer Palace. Round off the day with an evening Chinese acrobatic show.
Soak up the harmonious ambience of the Temple of Heaven, an orderly oasis in a bustling urban landscape, where you can watch, or participate in, a dance class. Heading to Beijing’s symbolic heart, stroll across Tiananmen Square and into the sprawling magnificence of the Forbidden City. Entering through the Gate of Supreme Harmony, you will find a complex full of imperial riches. This evening, relish Beijing’s best known delicacy – Peking Duck.
This morning is at your leisure before you are transferred to Beijing airport to board your flight to Australia.
Arrive back in Australia this morning on your flight from Beijing (depending on your flights, you may arrive in Australia on the night of Day 13 instead).
