DAY 2: IMPERIAL BEIJING
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. Enjoy a rickshaw ride through the warren-like hutongs, and visit a local family to gain an insight into Chinese culture and local customs. 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. This evening sit down to a traditional dinner of Peking Duck.

DAY 3: GREAT WALL
This morning is dedicated to China’s most iconic sight – the Great Wall. Taking a walk on this structure is the best way to appreciate both the wall itself and the dramatic scenery that it crosses. Visit a jade factory and savour an afternoon in the idyllic landscapes of the Summer Palace as you see the traditional Chinese gardens and exquisite architecture.

DAY 4: FLY TO XIAN

But as we cruise upstream nature takes over, revealing some of the world’s most dramatic scenery including the Three Gorges themselves.

Disembarking from the cruise vessel, visit the Panda House at Chongqing Zoo. Fly to the charming city of Guilin.

DAY 11: LI RIVER CRUISE

DAY 12: YANGSHUO
Yangshuo sits in an exquisite rural location, surrounded by jewel-green paddy fields and dramatic limestone karsts.
