Welcome to China – one of the world's oldest and most enduring cultures; all yours to explore.

The Terracotta Warriors, Forbidden City, the giant panda and the flowing Yangzi – China is home to some of the world's most remarkable places. Venture deep into the cityscapes from Shanghai to Beijing. Float past Yangshuo's limestone karsts and explore the tranquil monasteries in Emei Shan and Lhasa. You will be struck by how diverse this land can be. Immerse yourself in the rich tapestries of history and the charm of local villagers. The diversity of culinary traditions and natural beauty combine to create an experience like nothing else. Come for the Great Wall and stay for the dim sum. This is China, loud and proud.

China Highlights

Faiza · Traveled May 2024
As 72 and 82 year olds, from a small South African town, have grown accustomed to great care from Intrepid leaders and all round excellence on Intrepid tours. Travelling with much trepidation from South Africa, which has no metro and deals in cash, we grew immeasurably on this 8 day trip through China's awe-inspiring, future-oriented cities of Shanghai,Beijing and Xian.

On this my third Intrepid trip I, as an 82 year old, was again well cared for and inspired. This fast pace trip through a futuristic cities revealed a world I could never imagine, despite all my reading. I feel rejuvenated and inspired to seek out another such life-changing Intrepid trip.

Beijing to Hong Kong Adventure

John George · Traveled May 2024
The trip was amazing from start to finish and had a great range of activities from physical to cultural. Our tour leader Nancy was amazing and took such good care of us. If you are lucky enough to get Nancy ask her if she will sing for you. You won’t be disappointed! The Great Wall was spectacular as expected but an unexpected highlight for me was the cycle round the Xi’an city walls. We went just before sunset and it was spectacular. It’s an optional activity so don’t miss out!

Beijing to Hong Kong Adventure

Jonas · Traveled May 2024
It has been a pleasure to discover China! The itinerary works well as an introduction to the country and our group leader Nancy is such a wonderful human being. Make sure to add extra days before and after the trip, as both Beijing and HK have a lot to offer.
