Mesmerising mix of the ancient and modern
China is a fascinating country rich in centuries of history, steeped in ancient traditions with stunning landscapes and architecture. Today's China is a mesmerising mix of the ancient and modern. Its population is the fourth largest in the world and justly proud of China's unique cultural legacy and its achievements as a rapidly growing world superpower. The origins of silk, tea, paper money, porcelain and gunpowder lie here and with China effectively closed for most of its 6,000 year recorded history, much of what makes China an exceptional place remains mysterious to westerners.
There is no better way to experience the mysteries of China's Eastern paradise than on this 17- day trip. Highlights include of Tiananmen Square – its majestic Forbidden City the seat of imperial power for 600 years and spread over 250 acres and 9,999 rooms, The Great Wall of China and Beijing with its beautiful Summer Palace. Travellers get the opportunity to visit Xian, the centre of Chinese culture for 2,000 years and site of the Ming Dynasty's imposing 60 ft city walls and The Terracotta Army. There's travel through the stunning Three Gorges Dam, the Yangtze River and the sights of Shanghai.
This holiday includes scheduled flights, 15 nights' accommodation in four-star hotels including three nights on board a five-star Yangtze cruise ship and daily breakfast Guided tours of the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square, and the Great Wall (amongst others) are included in this trip of a lifetime.
