Our group at the Badaling Great Wall Photo by our client Ms. Carolyn Jean Kohn
After enjoying a rich breakfast, you will meet other group members for the coming trip at the hotel lobby. Your first stop of your 9 days China tour package is the world famous Tiananmen Square, the largest city square in the world. Next we go to the Forbidden City where you can sense the vicissitude of our once feudal country. You will have a glimpse of the luxurious royal life from the splendid palaces, delicate decorations and precious cultural relics. Enjoy an a la carte lunch (valued at CNY150.00 per person and included in our price) at a superb local restaurant.

After lunch, continue history appreciation at the Temple of Heaven. The highlight of the evening will be a brilliant Chinese Kung Fu Show presented at the Red Theater.

Meals: Western buffet breakfast, A la carte lunch
Day03 Beijing
Forbidden City, Beijing

The highlight of today's trip is a visit to the Great Wall. The part we will visit is Badaling, which is the best section on the "neck of the huge dragon". A jade factory is arranged. Since the food offered in the restaurants there was not well spoken of by our former clients, we would like to leave it on your own and advise you have some fast food around the site. 

In the afternoon, we visit the Sacred Way. Then we drive by the Bird's Nest (Olympic National Stadium) to the urban area. You will have a chance to take some photos of this wonderful building.

Meals: Western buffet breakfast
Day04 Beijing - Xian
Chinese countryside people celebrating the traditional festival
This morning's excursion will first cover the Summer Palace, the largest existing royal garden in China. Constructed over 200 years ago, it is famous for the magnificent buildings and charming landscape. After a visit to a pearl store, you will be entertained with an a la carte lunch (valued at CNY150.00 per person and included in our price) at a noted local restaurant. 

Then you still have some time to experience old Beijing history and special culture in the old Hutongs before taking the flight to the second destination of your 9 days China itinerary, Xian. Landing in Xian, your local guide and driver will meet you at the airport and take you to the hotel.

Meals: Western buffet breakfast, A la carte lunch
Accommodation: Sheraton Hotel
Day05 Xian
Our travel consultant Ruby with her clients
After a big breakfast at the hotel, head to the Terracotta Warriors and Horses Museum, the amazing underground project built more than 2,200 years ago. A pottery-making factory is scheduled. Then we have a local family visit with the home cooked a la carte lunch (valued at CNY120.00 per person and included in our price). It is quite special and exciting that you come to a foreign country, learn how to cook the local food and dine with the local people in their family. 

In the afternoon, continue appreciating the city's long history by visiting the Small Wild Goose Pagoda and Xian Museum. Your evening will be enlightened by the Tang Dynasty Music and Dance Show while partaking of the traditional food, the dumpling dinner.

Meals: Western buffet breakfast, Home-cooked a la carte lunch, Dumpling dinner
Tips: Clients visiting in December, January, February and March will arrange the dinner and evening activity on their own for this day, since the theater will not be open at that time.
Day06 Xian
Local pupils going back home after school
The first stop today is the well-preserved City Wall. It's very popular among the visitors to cycle on the top for a whole circle to have an overall perspective of the city. You may also have a try if you like (the rent will be on your own). The next destination is Shaanxi History Museum, the symbol of Chinese long history and rich culture.

After an a la carte lunch (valued at CNY120.00 per person and included in our price), you will be transferred to the Great Mosque. For those who love collecting souvenirs and gifts for families and friends, the Muslim bazaar beside the mosque is a wonderful place to go.

Meals: Western buffet breakfast, A la carte lunch
Day07 Xian - Guilin
Picturesque scenery along the Li river
Continue your 9 days guided tour of China to Guilin. You will take a morning flight and the local guide will welcome you at Guilin airport and transfer you to check in at the hotel. The rest of the day, you will be taken to visit the Reed Flute Cave and a sea water pearl store. 

Meals: Western buffet breakfast
Accommodation: Sheraton Hotel
Day08 Guilin - Yangshuo - Guilin
Clients' comments on our service
Today you will have a chance to appreciate the supernatural landscape by cruising on the Li River. The cruise will depart from Guilin at 09:00 and arrive at Yangshuo at about 14:00. The box lunch provided by the cruise company today may not meet your expectation, so we suggest you have a big breakfast at the hotel. 

When you arrive at Yangshuo, our guide will arrange you to enjoy the rural scenery of Yangshuo. On the way, you will visit a local peasant's home. After that, you will get back to Guilin and visit the Elephant Trunk Hill.

Meals: Western buffet breakfast, Lunch
Day09 Guilin Exit
Today you will make your own way from hotel to the airport and board your onward flight. We wish you a nice trip home.

If you need us to arrange the departure air tickets or a subsequent travel, please feel free to contact our consultants.

Meals: Western buffet breakfast
