✈UK – Beijing (4 Nights): First we will fly you from the UK to Beijing, where we’ll meet you on arrival and transfer you to your first hotel, where you’ll stay for 4 nights.

Buzzing, busy and breath-taking, Beijing is home to some of the World’s most incredible sights, and is the second largest city in China (after Shanghai). Its history dates back over 3000 years and its longevity is clearly displayed in its plethora of remarkable sights like The Great Wall, the Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square, the Pearl Market and Silk Alley as well as its many stunning temples, palaces and parks.

✈Beijing – Xi’an (3 Nights): After your stay in Beijing we’ll transfer you back to the airport for an onward flight to Xi’an. We’ll then meet you at the other end, to transfer you to your next hotel where you’ll stay for a further 3 nights.

Xian, the fascinating capital of the Shaanxi Province has a rich heritage. Xian is the starting point for the famous Silk Road and it was the former capital city of China for more than a thousand years, spanning 13 dynasties. Xian’s history is clearly demonstrated in the abundance of cultural attractions with undoubtedly the biggest draw, the truly mesmerising Terracotta Warriors.

✈Xi’an – Chongqing (Yangtze River Cruise) (3 Nights): Once you’ve checked out of your Xi’an hotel, we’ll transfer you to the airport for your flight to Chongqing. We’ll then meet you in Chongqing and transfer you to your luxury river cruise ship, which you will be staying on for the next 3 nights.

Your Yangtze River Cruise will be a magical experience, giving you front row seats to some of China’s most stunning scenery. The cruise brings together the three canyon gorges, Qutang, Wu and Xiling that surround the river in a Y shape, as well as many ancient cultural sites along the river.

✈Yichang – Shanghai (4 Nights): Once the ship arrives in Yichang, you’ll disembark and we’ll transfer you to the airport for your flight to Shanghai. We’ll then transfer you from Shanghai airport to your last hotel where you be staying for your final 4 nights.

The vibrant metropolis of Shanghai is China’s largest city. It has seen phenomenal growth over the last 25 years and is now a global financial centre with a skyline crammed full of modern skyscrapers overlooking the Shanghai of old with its classical Chinese architecture and pagodas. The mix of the modern cosmopolitan vibe and the traditional Chinese culture is a great draw for tourists as it offers a variety of experiences.

✈Shanghai – UK: On your final day in China, we’ll transfer you back to the airport, where you will get your flight back to the UK.
