China Adventure Overview
Discover the spirit of cultural China on this iconic adventure
As China leaps into the 21st century it is still possible to meander through peaceful villages and meet local farmers working their fields. This adventure tour offers the richness of past dynasties, historic highlights such as the Great Wall in Beijing and the Terracotta Warriors of Xi'an, alongside up-to-the-second experiences in ultra-modern cities. Bask in the bright lights of Hong Kong, delight in the sublime beauty of the Yangshuo countryside and spend the night in a monastery in the Emei Mountains. Take it all in - these wonderful contradictions offer the true spirit of China.
