Day01 Arrival in Beijing
Your enjoyable escorted China tour starts with our helpful pick-up service. On landing at Beijing airport, our guide will greet you outside the customs area, and then transfer you to the hotel in a clean and comfortable private minibus. The remainder of the day is free for you to have a good rest and refresh from fatigue after a long journey.

Meals: No meals, advice freely available
Accommodation: Novotel Beijing Xin Qiao
Day02 Beijing
Our guest toasting on the Great Wall
After breakfast, you will meet with your fellow group members in the hotel lobby and then set off for today's visit. The first destination will be Tiananmen Square, the largest city square in the world. Then follow your guide to enter the Forbidden City. The halls with flying golden roofs and red walls, carved dragons, and lion statues in the palace reveal the past glory of the fallen imperial family. 

To avoid cheap and low quality tourist restaurant, we specially serve you an a la carte lunch (valued at CNY150.00 per person and included in our price) at a famous restaurant to taste authentic Chinese cuisine.
In the afternoon, continue your visit to the Temple of Heaven, the imperial altar for the emperors of the Ming (1368 - 1644) and Qing (1644 - 1911) dynasties to worship the god of heaven. This evening, enjoy a sensational Chinese Kung Fu Show at the Red Theater.

Meals: Western buffet breakfast, A la carte lunch
Day03 Beijing
High Speed Train
The morning's excursion takes you to Badaling Great Wall, one of the world's wonders. Constructed in the Ming Dynasty, Badaling is the best preserved section among the 5,500 miles of the Great Wall. The wall, dotted with beacon towers, stretches along mountain ridges for miles, resembling a huge flying dragon. A jade factory is scheduled along the way.

The restaurants nearby are of low quality, so we do not arrange lunch. TCG suggests that you have a big breakfast and have some fast food for lunch by yourself. Your guide will be also glad to provide you with advices. 

Then proceed to the Sacred Way in the afternoon. The whole day's sightseeing will come to an end after seeing the appearance of the Bird's Nest (National Olympic Stadium) on the way back. You can also have a short stop to take some photos with the huge “nest” and the nearby “water cube” (National Natatorium).

Meals: Western buffet breakfast
Day04 Beijing - Shanghai
Today's visit starts with the Summer Palace, the largest and best preserved imperial garden in China and then a pearl store. Constructed on the natural scenery of Kunming Lake and Wanshou Hill in the Qing Dynasty, the garden is a perfect combination between landscape and imperial palaces. 

After that we will serve you an a la carte lunch (valued at CNY150.00 per person and included in our price) at a good quality restaurant. 

The guide will see you off for an afternoon high-speed train to Shanghai. Upon arrival at Shanghai Hongqiao railway station, you will be picked up and transferred to the hotel. Have a good rest in the remainder of the day.

Meals: Western buffet breakfast, A la carte lunch
Accommodation: Pullman Shanghai Jing An
Day05 Shanghai
Shanghai Bund at sunset
An entire day trip will show you a versatile Shanghai. In the morning, you will get a general knowledge about the history, culture and development of this city in Shanghai Museum. Then proceed to Yuyuan Garden. In this Ming-dynasty garden, you will see traditional Chinese buildings with beautiful carvings and decorations, and artistic artificial hills and clear ponds with stone bridges. A silk shop is scheduled later. 

Around noon, an a la carte farewell lunch (valued at CNY120.00 per person and included in our price) will be served at a popular restaurant. 

Then continue on to visit the iconic Bund area, which has witnessed the city's development since the last century. A few minutes' walk away is the famous Nanjing Road, where you will find both international brands and featured local specialties. Today's last stop is an ancient cultural street. Once an outdated residential area, it is now turned to a modern art zone where the old houses become lovely art centers, exotic restaurants and bars. Upon returning to the hotel, our guide will see you into the lobby and bid you bon voyage.

Meals: Western buffet breakfast, A la carte lunch
Day06 Departure from Shanghai
