Explore all of China's five top destinations in the best designed China overland tour itinerary. This exciting journey is an eye-opening and life-changing experience to be remembered for the rest of your life.
Walk on the Great Wall; tour the mystic Forbidden City; discover the old, narrow streets of Beijing by rickshaw - you will find endless treasures to unfold in China's proud capital city. On to Xian in central China, you marvel at the 6,000 life-sized warriors in the Terra-cotta Legion, visit the Wild Goose Pagoda, and enjoy an optional show in memory of the great Tang Dynasty.
Your journey continues to China's southwest subtropical Guilin, cruise on the Li River and soak in China's most famous landscape that seems lifted straight out of a Chinese scroll painting. What makes this trip truly unique and exciting is an exclusive hiking tour to the hidden gem of Longsheng's Dragon Spine Terraces, inhabited by minority nationalities. This discovery is rarely available in the conventional itineraries. Visit the Giant Panda Breeding Center in Chengdu.
Fly to Shanghai, the center of China's economic boom. Tour the colonial Bund; admire the charming architecture in the French Concession, overlooking Pudong new zone from China's tallest building. From Shanghai, a side trip offers you a chance to visit to the 2,500-year-old city of Suzhou, famed for its classic Chinese gardens, silk and embroidery, and to the Water town Tongli to cruise on its many canals.
This phenomenal itinerary represents a diverse mix of history, modernity, natural scenery, minority culture, and people-to-people experience, offering a perfect balance of popular highlights with the off-the-beaten-path expedition. As the tour name suggests, this journey will showcase you "China's Best Treasures."
