Our clients visiting Shanghai Bund
This 6 days' China private tour will literally start from today and your first destination is Shanghai Museum. Selected exhibits collected throughout China, such as bronze wares, potteries, and paintings, will reveal the past of this ancient oriental country in front of you. After that, we will drive you to the Yuyuan Garden. This peaceful garden is like an elaborately designed bonsai placed in a busy bazaar. At noon, we will arrange an a la carte lunch at a famed restaurant and the value is CNY150 per person which is included in our price. Your guide will recommend local special dishes for you.

In local people's mind, tales of the Bund are exactly the stories of Shanghai City. In the afternoon, the guide will take you to the western bank of Huangpu River to explore the iconic Bund, which is clustered with 52 European-style buildings of 1920s. On its opposite is Lujiazui Financial & Trade Center with towering modern skyscrapers. The flowing Huangpu River is like a boundary line dividing the past and present of Shanghai. We will arrange a one-hour Huangpu River cruise for you to view the scenery on both sides.

After that, we will transfer you to an art block - Tianzifang, brimming with distinctive workshops and stores. Here you can take a sip of the cultural flavor of the old Shanghai. If you want to have a rest, you may have a cup of coffee in a comfortable bar. When today's tour is over, we will drive you back to the hotel.

Meals: Western buffet breakfast, a la carte lunch

Day 4 Beijing
Tiananmen Square, Forbidden City, A la carte lunch, Summer Palace. (B+L)
Badaling Great Wall, Beijing
Your private Beijing tour will start from the center of the city, Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City. Tiananmen Square is the world's largest square in downtown area. To its north is the Forbidden City, the living place of 24 emperors in history. With the description of your guide, you can easily imagine the everyday life of the royal family. Then, the guide will take you to a nice restaurant and treat you with traditional Chinese cuisines. The a la carte lunch costs CNY150 per person and is included in our price.

Having visited the dainty private Yuyuan Garden in Shanghai, this afternoon, we will drive you to the Summer Palace, which is a grand summer resort of the royal family. Different from the tiny ponds and exquisite rockeries in the Yuyuan Garden, which can only be viewed, in the Summer Palace, you can take a boat in the large mirror-like Kunming Lake, climb up the Longevity Hill, and stroll along the Long Corridor to feel the magnificence of this imperial garden.

Meals: Western buffet breakfast, a la carte lunch
Day 5 Beijing
Badaling Great Wall, Bird's Nest (drive by), Temple of Heaven. (B)
Forbidden City, Beijing
Today, we will take you to the Badaling Great Wall, which has received numerous visitors from home and abroad, including more than 400 world's leaders. Climbing the Great Wall takes a great effort. Please wear something comfortable and pack some snacks for energy-replenishing. You may have lunch around Badaling on your own, and your guide is willing to give you some suggestions.

In the afternoon, we arrange you a visit to the Temple of Heaven. On the way back, you will view the Olympic National Stadium (Bird's Nest) and National Aquatics Center (Water Cube) in a distance. The Temple of Heaven was the sacrificial altar for emperors to pray for the blessings of the God. But now, the park of the temple is a great place to immerse in local people's leisure life. Many citizens will gather here to exercise, chat, and dance.

Meals: Western buffet breakfast
