Highlights

 

Take off on a journey of discovery through diverse and delicious cuisine on this 13 day Taste of China food tour with Great Wall and flights. Plus opt to add on time in another of Asia’s culinary hotspots by spending 3 nights in Singapore on the way home.

See both sides of Shanghai with two days in China’s largest city. Join an insightful walking tour that encompasses the varied neighbourhoods of the city, from the 1920s architecture along the waterfront Bund, to the winding lanes of Old Shanghai and the European-influenced facades of the French Concession. Turn your hands to the skill of filling and folding xiaolongbao (Shanghai’s famous soup dumplings) in a chef-led cooking class. The broth-filled parcels you make will be that night’s dinner! Fly from Shanghai to the capital of the Sichuan province, Chengdu. This province’s cuisine is renowned for its spice – and plenty of it. Follow a chef into the local markets to learn more about the flavour profile of Sichuan cuisine and to pick up the ingredients you’ll need to replicate some of the region’s most emblematic dishes. Your appetite gets a respite with a walking tour through the Chengdu city centre that visits Tianfu Square and People’s Park, among other locations. Another of the highlights of your time in Chengdu (especially for the animal-lovers in the group) will be the visit to the Giant Panda Breeding Research Base. Look in at the habitats housing these adorable creatures and find out more about the Base’s ongoing conservation work.

Experience one of China’s modern marvels – the bullet train – for the trip to Xi’an in the Shaanxi province. The long-stretching imperial history of Xi’an has gifted the city with a richly varied culinary scene, including influences from Islamic culture. Hearty eaters will be in gastronomic heaven with the province’s reputation for belt-busting portions, and those fond of getting their hands dirty will love the chance to prepare the dough and make noodles and sauce in another of the tour’s immersive experiences. Time in Xi’an is also devoted to two of the city’s renowned sites: Giant wild Goose Pagoda, and the line-up of ancient statues and figures found at the Terracotta Army. Another bullet train whisks you to Beijing, the behemoth Chinese capital. Find yourself standing in the centre of the grand Tiananmen Square as you contemplate its legacy and scale, and follow in the footsteps of old world emperors as you cross into the mysterious Forbidden City. Learn about the lives of Beijing natives with an excursion into the city’s hutongs and then at a lunch with a local family. Lace up your most comfortable walking shoes on an outing to another of China’s instantly recognisable landmarks – the Great Wall of China. Visit at the Mutianyu section of this ancient defensive structure and relish the chance to meander these iconic stones.

Put off your return home for a few days – and continue your culinary expedition around Asia – by extending your trip to include a 3 night stopover in Singapore. You’ll stay in a luxurious 5 star hotel and have complete free time to explore the gastronomic and cultural treasures of this exciting city-state.

 
 

Day 1: Australia – airplane-takeoff – Shanghai

Arrive at the airport at the necessary time to board your flight to Shanghai in China! You arrive in this incredible city, the largest city in China, are greeted by your transfer and assisted to the hotel for check in. As well as its commercial clout, Shanghai has a world-wide reputation for its cuisine, from xiaolongbao and steamed crab, to Peking duck and Beggar’s chicken.

Day 2: Shanghai (B, D)

Join your tour leader and fellow travellers for a walking tour into the heart of historic Shanghai. Wander along the waterfront Bund to get a sense of the city’s 1920s era, and then meander the winding lanes (known as nongtangs) of old Shanghai to get a peek into the daily lives of locals. Embrace the European feel of the French Concession and understand why this area is nicknamed the ‘Paris of the East’ as you take in its tree-lined avenues and Tudor-style architecture. Later this afternoon, get hands on with a dumpling-making class. Pick up the tricks to mastering the art of filling and folding potstickers and xiaolongbao (soup dumplings) and savour your handiwork in this experience, which is led by a local chef. The treats you make will double as tonight’s early dinner. You have free time afterwards.

Day 3: Shanghai – airplane-takeoff – Chengdu (B)

This morning is allocated as free time until this afternoon’s one-way flight to Chengdu. Some things to do for your final hours in Shanghai may include visiting Shanghai First Foodmall, a sprawling store that spans multiple storeys and shops selling fresh, dried and exotic foods – a great go-to for travellers wanting to stock up on specialty souvenirs! You might also visit the Propaganda Museum, head up to the observation decks of the Oriental Pearl TV Tower, test out your bartering skills in local markets, or amble through the Yu Garden.

A transfer greets you following your flight to Chengdu and takes you to the hotel for check in.

Day 4: Chengdu (B, L)

Chengdu is the capital of the Sichuan province and is a UNESCO Creative City of Gastronomy – the first of its kind to be designated in Asia. Sichuan is renowned for its cuisine, in particular its tastebud-tingling pepper. Your time in Chengdu begins with a trip to the local market. Under the tutelage of a local chef you will learn about the nuances of Sichuan cuisine, and you’ll also scout out ingredients needed to prepare a tantalising Sichuan feast. Make notes of the techniques and flavours highlighted in this cooking class, and tuck into what you prepare for lunch. Afterwards, your group sets out on a walking through the city centre. See the statue of Chairman Mao in Tianfu Square, and take a moment to observe locals while in People’s Park. Settle into a bamboo chair while in the park, sip a cup of tea and watch on as Chengdu residents go about their day-to-day business. You might also try your hand at mah-jong or badminton.

Day 5: Chengdu (B, L)

Chengdu isn’t just known for its cuisine. One of the most popular things to do in Chengdu is to coo over some of China’s most iconic (and furry) emblems – the residents of the Giant Panda Breeding Research Base. Find out more about the ongoing efforts to conserve this endangered species; there are fewer than 1000 pandas left in the world and 80% of the population is found in the mountains of Sichuan. More than 80 giant and red pandas called the Base home and visitors can watch them play, eat and interact with the habitats.

From one of Sichuan’s icons to another; a lunch of Sichuan hotpot is on the cards following the Base visit. Known as huo guo, Sichuan hotpot is a dish thought to date back more than 1000 years, when it was first eaten by local boatmen working on the Yangtze River in nearby Chongqing. Authentic hotpot is traditionally served as a communal pot of deliciously-spiced broth, with diners choosing their own ingredients to then be cooked in to the hot liquid.

Day 6: Chengdu – train-icon – Xi’an (B)

Take breakfast at the hotel and then be transferred to the railway station in time for your to board a bullet train service to Xi’an. A driver picks you up on arrival and takes you to the hotel for check in.

Day 7: Xi’an (B, L)

The distinctive cuisine of the Shaanxi Province (of which Xi’an is the capital) is yours for the tasting today. The flavour profile of this style of cuisine is marked by rich aromatics and ample spice. A large Muslim community in the area has also given Shaanxi cuisine a strong Islamic influence, from the array of nut and pastry shops throughout the city, to the fixture of kebabs and flatbreads as common street snacks. Other calling cards of Shaanxi cuisine include generous portions, family provenance, and the prominence of noodles and dumplings as side dishes. This morning’s first touchpoint with Xi’an is at Giant Wild Goose Pagoda, located in Da Ci’En Temple in the city’s south. This is followed by a class where you’ll try your hand at one of China’s most revered culinary arts – noodle making. Get hands on as you prepare the dough, pull and shape the noodles, and mix up the sauces to serve alongside.

Day 8: Xi’an (B, L)

Head out on an excursion out of the city to one of China’s most world-renowned sites: the Terracotta Army. This incredible archaeological find was discovered by complete chance in 1976, and comprises more than 8000 statues – soldiers, horses, chariots – that were created to guard the tomb of Emperor Qin Shi Huangdi more than 2000 years before being uncovered. Marvel at the scale of the site and the unique features bestowed upon each figure as you learn about ongoing excavation works. Lunch is taken at a local farmer-operated restaurant. The day ends with time in the Muslim Quarter. Your exploration of the area will unveil why Xi’an is regarded as the snack capital of China, as you pass by street food vendors selling everything from kebabs and cold noodles, to hot soups and steamed dumplings. Indulge in any bites that catch your eye (or your appetite) at your own cost. Your leader will be on-hand to help you place your order.

Day 9: Xi’an – Beijing (B)

You have the day as free time until a driver picks you up and takes you to the train station. Board a bullet train for Beijing and arrive in the Chinese capital to be greeted by a transfer and taken to the hotel for check in. There is no set sightseeing or activities for the afternoon or evening, and you are free to use this time to relax at the hotel or head into the city for independent exploration.

Day 10: Beijing (B, L, D)

Beijing is a true melting pot of cultures and cuisine. The city’s culinary landscape has been influenced by everyone from emperors and royally-summoned chefs, to commoners and those that settled here after travelling from afar. Make your way to Tiananmen Square in the centre of the city. This is one of the largest public plazas in the world and is flanked by some of the city’s most notable sights and landmarks. From the Square, you will venture into the once off-limits realm of the Forbidden City. Wander its courtyards and gardens as you learn about the Ming and Qing dynasties that formerly resided in this other-worldly complex. It is then into the labyrinthine network of alleys and traditional homes that make up Beijing’s renowned hutongs. You will join a local family for lunch at their house. There is more feasting on the itinerary for tonight as you sit down to a Peking duck dinner at a restaurant that specialises in this beloved dish.

Day 11: Beijing (B, L)

Make the two-hour drive out of Beijing to the Mutianyu section of the Great Wall of China. Here, you will have the opportunity to explore, fill your camera with shots of this legendary structure, and even walk some of the Wall for yourself. You will have ample chance to learn about the wall, from its original purpose to its construction and the role it now plays as one of China’s most recognisable sites. Be sure to wear your most comfortable shoes today as parts of the Wall are quite steep in places. Your visit to the Wall is followed by taking lunch with a local family. Return to Beijing in the evening. This is your last night in China.

Day 12: Beijing – airplane-takeoff – Australia (B)

A transfer picks you up from the hotel at the appropriate time and takes you to the airport for you to board your return flight to Australia. You have free time until your transfer arrives.
