  ► DAY 1 - ARRIVAL BEIJING
 
ARRIVAL IN BEIJING WITH TIME TO RELAX AT THE HOTEL AFTER YOUR FLIGHT

Welcome to Beijing, China’s cultural and political capital and a real highlight with it’s extraordinary blend of ancient and modern sights. Your guide will greet your family at the airport with a transfer by private car to your hotel. The rest of the day is free to relax from the long flight or start to explore the city with the help of your personalised and exclusive Trip Guidebook we send you before the trip. The area around your centrally located hotel is perfect for an introductory walk. We tend to find that by the end of the day any concerns you may have had about China not being child friendly have been dispelled!

♨ Meals included: None today.

OVERNIGHT BAMBOO GARDEN HOTEL  ✭ ✭ ✭ ✭
Long time favourite for those looking for Chinese traditional style combined with a good deal of Western comfort. A real Beijing experience.

 
  ► DAY 2 - BEIJING
 
TEMPLE OF HEAVEN, TIANANMEN, FORBIDDEN CITY, JINGSHAN PARK & LAO SHE TEAHOUSE

Today see some of the highlights of Beijing starting with the Temple of Heaven, considered by many to be the most beautiful building in China. What makes the Temple of Heaven really special is that it is set inside a vast park which is a centre for a wide range of cultural activities. Here you will see - and be able to participate in if you wish - kite flying, Tai Chi, various styles of dancing, all manner of martial arts, water calligraphy and a range of sports peculiar to China. In short, there is something for everyone.

On to the vast Tiananmen Square, home to the Mao Mausoleum (it may be possible to visit if open) and Monument to the People’s Heroes before walking to the huge palace complex of the Forbidden City with its 980 buildings with 8,707 rooms (you can keep the kids busy by asking them to check this figure!) We walk up the middle axis from South to North taking in the splendour of the most important buildings before finishing the ancient garden by the north gate. Directly north of the Forbidden city is Jingshan park where we climb beautifully landscaped “Coal Hill” for one of Beijing’s best views.

A fun evening of entertainment awaits you at the Lao She Teahouse to experience a variety of traditional  performances including Peking Opera, Acrobatics, Martial Arts, Cross Talk, Music and Shadow Puppetry. Transfers from and back to your hotel are included.

♨ Meals included: Hotel Breakfast & Restaurant Lunch.

  ► DAY 3 - BEIJING TO XIAN
 
THE GREAT WALL AT STUNNING MUTIANYU & THE 2008 OLYMPIC VENUES

Today we will be showing you one of China’s most famous sights - the Great Wall. We visit the dramatic and less crowded Mutianyu section 70 km from Beijing set amongst spectacular mountain scenery. Dating back to the 6th Century and largely rebuilt in the 16th century during the Ming Dynasty, it is one of the best preserved sections of the wall largely due to the high standard of construction. You can also opt to descend from the Wall the exhilarating way by toboggan (small local payment required).

On the way back to the city we stop at the 2008 Olympic sites of the spectacular Bird’s Nest Stadium and the aquatics centre known as the Water Cube - external viewing only.

After the tour a transfer to the station for an overnight sleeper train.

WE SUGGEST - note NOT included in this trip yet!
We can arrange the bullet train to Xian for those wanting a more modern China travel experience although this requires one more hotel night, increasing costs - just ask us for more details!

♨ Meals included: Hotel Breakfast & Restaurant Lunch.

overnight train  

OVERNIGHT SLEEPER TRAIN
There is nothing like a sleeper train journey to experience the real China. Standards are good and the class of cabin we use is comfortable and secure.

 
  ► DAY 4 - XIAN
 
THE TERRA COTTA ARMY, CALLIGRAPHY LESSON, CITY WALLS, MUSLIM QUARTER & TANG DYNASTY SHOW

Morning arrival in Xian, the once golden city of Emperors, soldiers, arts, culture and the capital of the prosperous Tang Dynasty. Your guide and driver will meet and transfer you to your hotel.

Please note that the check-in time is 12 noon but if a room is available or you have pre-booked early check-in you can go straight to your room. We have booked an extra breakfast for you today due to your early arrival.

Today visit one of China’s most extraordinary sights, the Terra Cotta Army built by China’s first Emperor Qin Shi Huang in 246 BC. Several thousand of the life-sized soldiers are on display and, with no two soldiers looking alike, make for a truly impressive spectacle.

After lunch it is time for a calligraphy lesson. There is more the the Chinese script than just writing as characters often have stories and deeper meaning attached to them. You will have an opportunity to learn the brush technique and keep the results of your efforts. After this we finish on Xian’s largest construction, the 13.7 km City Walls which are up to 18 meters thick at the base and 12 meters in height. The walls were constructed during the Ming Dynasty from 1370 AD and replaced an even larger wall. It is possible to hire bicycles and ride some sections of the wall (a decision that can be made and paid for locally) and the top of the Wall is perhaps the safest place in China to ride a bicycle!

Finish the day with a wander through Xian’s vibrant Muslim quarter, including a visit to the Great Mosque, unusually built entirely in the Chinese architectural style. This area is an excellent place to souvenir shop and eat - just ask your guide for recommendations.

This evening a trip to the lavish Tang Dynasty show performed in a beautiful theatre. The show itself highlights Chinese culture from this Dynasty, considered a golden age in China’s long history. Music, singing and dance with a traditional orchestra and colourful costumes makes this a visual feast for all ages! Tickets include return transfers.

♨ Meals included: Hotel Breakfast & Restaurant Lunch.

xian grand noble hotel  

OVERNIGHT GRAND NOBLE HOTEL  ✭ ✭ ✭ ✭ ✭

  ► DAY 5 - XIAN TO CHENGDU
 
THE SUPERB UNDERGROUND HANYANGLING MAUSOLEUM & FLIGHT TO CHENGDU

On the way to the airport we visit the unique Hanyangling Mausoleum, the burial place of the Emperor Jing of Han who ruled from 188 BC to 141 BC. The Mausoleum is China’s first underground museum where you can actually walk over the burial pits along glass paths. Much less crowded and more intimate than the Terra Cotta Army, the experience allows you to get up closer to the ancient artifacts which are well presented.

After lunch continue onto the airport for your onward flight.

♨ Meals included: Hotel Breakfast & Restaurant Lunch.

chengdu buddha zen hotel  

OVERNIGHT BUDDHAZEN HOTEL  ✭ ✭ ✭

THE WORLD FAMOUS RESEARCH BASE FOR GIANT PANDA BREEDING

Today we visit Chengdu’s famous Research Base for Giant Panda Breeding which has over 60 pandas and is considered the best place in the world to see these endangered icons of China. In addition to the many pandas you can see here (including Red Pandas) there is an opportunity to hold a panda cub although note that this is not guaranteed and requires a local payment direct to the the Research base of RMB 2,000 per person in the photo (not per photo) and must be booked in advance which we can do for you.

WE SUGGEST - note NOT included in this trip yet!
We can also arrange a full day volunteering at the Panda Centre. This involves helping with the daily duties from preparing the pandas food and cleaning out their quarters! Full clothing is provided as well as a certificate on completion for the day. Available Monday to Friday only - ask us for more details.

Return to your hotel with the rest of the day free. In the evening trip to the colourful, loud and exciting Sichuan Opera. Not sure if opera is for you? Well this opera is like no other including it’s cousin - Peking opera. In spicy Sichuan the show combines stunts such as face-changing, sword play and fire spitting with the plot. The tickets include transfers from and back to your hotel.

♨ Meals included: Hotel Breakfast & Restaurant Lunch.

  ► DAY 7 - CHENGDU TO LIJIANG
 
LIJIANG OLD TOWN, MU PALACE & IMPRESSIVE VIEWS FROM BLACK DRAGON POOL

After breakfast a transfer to the airport in good time for your flight. Arrival in Lijiang, a UNESCO World Heritage city of cobbled streets and tiled roofs set against the magnificent backdrop of the 5,596 meter high, 13 peaked Jade Dragon Snow Mountain. Your guide and driver will meet and transfer you to your hotel.

Today you have an half day tour of the Lijiang’s Old City including the fabulous palace of the Mu Clan who ruled over this area for 400 years. This large complex is a superb example of local Naxi architecture. You also visit the Black Dragon Pool, a beautiful park containing traditional architecture and one of the most famous views in China of the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain - stunning if the weather cooperates!

THE 13 PEAKED JADE SNOW DRAGON MOUNTAIN & THE FRESCOES OF BAISHA VILLAGE

Today we drive the 15 km through beautiful countryside to the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain, the 5,596 meter, thirteen peaked massif clearly visible from Lijiang but much more impressive up close. We take a spectacular cable car ride up to a high grassland plateau on the mountain from where the snow covered peaks tower above making for quite an adventure!

WE SUGGEST - note NOT included in this trip yet!
While on the mountain why not experience the spectacular “Impressions of Lijiang” show involving a cast of over 500 and directed by Zhang Yimou perhaps better known for films such as Hero and House of Flying Daggers as well as the Beijing 2008 Olympic opening ceremony. The show brings to life the traditions of the Naxi, Yi and Bai people who live in this areas of Yunnan.

Descend by cable car and visit Baisha Village, the earliest known settlement of the Naxi people and a treasure trove of local, traditional architecture. The village is known for the 44 Baisha Frescoes drawn during the Ming Dynasty and which embody the artistic styles of the Naxi, Tibetan and Bai minorities.

After the tour return to your hotel with the rest of the evening free.

♨ Meals included: Hotel Breakfast & Restaurant Lunch.

This relaxed town has a backdrop of the beautiful Cangshan Mountains that peak 4,200 meters and is situated close to the shores of lovely Erhai Lake.

After check-in begin an half day tour of Dali including the Old City and Three Pagodas. The relaxed Old City is well preserved and known for its architecture and being the cultural centre of the local Bai people. The Tang Dynasty Three Pagodas are some of the best preserved Buddhist structures in China and are set in a beautiful location reflecting in a lake with a mountain backdrop.

FREE DAY TO EXPLORE THE SIGHTS OF DALI OR RELAX

A free day to further explore the Old City and countryside and lake side villages that surround Dali. We recommend heading up into the Cangshan mountains, an area of stunning beauty. The most common way to visit the mountains is to take the chairlift up and then walk the 3 to 5 hours to a different chairlift to return to Dali. The walk between lifts is easy to follow on a good path wonderfully named the “Cloud Traveller’s Path.”

Early evening a transfer to the station for an overnight sleeper train.
