Highlights

 

Take in ancient sites, world-renowned structures and landmarks, and a fascinating culture on an 8 day Delights of China tour.

Touch down in Tianjin, a major port city that is home to European-inspired houses, a beautiful waterfront promenade and a solid helping of modern skyscrapers. Meander through the Five Great Avenues in downtown Tianjin and pinpoint the architectural influences from France, Germany and Spain. Get a taste of local flavour with a walk down Ancient Culture Street or momentarily transport yourself from China to the Mediterranean by checking out Italian Style Street.

Visit some of the sites and stadiums used in the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics and then tick off what is sure to be a bucket list experience: climbing the Great Wall of China. Arguably China’s most recognisable landmark, the Great Wall of China is as epic as it is fascinating. Learn about its construction and history – and take plenty of photos at the same time – before spending the night in nearby Gubei Water Town. Return to Beijing to explore the Chinese capital and appreciate the grandeur of Tiananmen Square.

Those eager to see another of China’s great cities can take up the opportunity to extend the tour to a 10 day itinerary. This includes 2 nights in Xi’an and a trip to the Terracotta Army site.
