What's included in this trip
Beijing to Hong Kong SummaryAdd to Shortlist
Beijing has a long and colourful history and this rapidly modernising city is an amazing whirl of ancient sites, modern buildings, bicycles, people, shops and eateries.
Snaking over the landscape for 8,851 km, the building of China's Great Wall started in the 5th century BC with the aim of protecting China's northern borders from invading Mongolian hordes.
As the start of the ancient trading route the Silk Road and an imperial centre for 2,000 years, Xi'an has a fascinating history and rich cultural sites to discover.
Blending 21st-century architecture with old-world character, Shanghai is the vibrant pulse of new China.
With nine rivers and alleys joined by old stone bridges, Xitang is a unique water town with narrow, maze-like streets, antique temples and atmospheric waterways.
With karst peaks looming and the Li River gently running alongside, Yangshuo's scenery is glorious and its town is a great place to relax and explore China's countryside.
Known as the Dragon's Backbone and built around 500 years ago, the Longji rice terraces are remarkable, with colourful terraces covering entire mountainsides.
A British colony until 1997, Hong Kong's cityscape is spectacular and its modern fast-paced life is only minutes from picturesque islands and beaches.
