You can design your self-exploration route of this international metropolis to cut the price down. The convenient transportation in Hong Kong makes it possible to access to most famous attractions easily.

You are suggested to take Tsuen Wan Line to the Central District first and take the Peak Tram to the Victoria Peak, where you can see the whole island under your feet. Promenading along the Aberdeen and Repulse Bay should also be a good recreation. The Stanley Market in the south of Hong Kong is a wonderful destination as well to find singular gadgets and taste snacks.

Today, we will arrange an exploration of Badaling Great Wall in the morning. After breakfast, our guide and driver will come to get you at the hotel and take you to the Badaling Great Wall. Climbing the Great Wall is really energy-consuming, so you are advised to have a big breakfast at the hotel and prepare some snacks with you.

Lunch is not arranged by us, but we suggest you have a meal in a fast food restaurant at the foot of the Great Wall, for the food provided in other restaurants is of low quality. Your guide will be willing to recommend you some restaurants for your choice. After that, we will head for the Sacred Way. You will see a grand stone archway, several animals' sculptures, and stone pavilions while you are marching along this 4-mile stone path.

Being the capital of the Tang Dynasty (618 - 907) for around 300 years, Xian is endowed with many traces of that period. In the afternoon, we will arrange a stop to the Xian Museum and Small Wild Goose Pagoda built at the time. Although the top of the pagoda has been destroyed because of several earthquakes and has not been repaired yet, it leaves the Small Wild Goose Pagoda an incomplete beauty.

At night, our guide will take you to the Shaanxi Song and Dance Theater to enjoy splendid performances, which tell the stories of the Tang Dynasty and reproduce the luxury imperial life on stage. You will also be treated with dumpling dinner.

With precious antique exhibits on display, you will have a better understanding of the profound history and civilization of China.

After an a la carte lunch valuing CNY120.00 per person at a well-known restaurant, continue your China group tour from Hong Kong to the Great Mosque.

If time permits, you can stop by a local villager's home on the way to know more about their daily life.
