Travel from Hanoi to Kunming on this adventure through China's spectacular Yunnan province.

Explore Yuanyang, the picture-perfect home of the Hani people, where eye-popping terraced landscapes stretch as far as the eye can see. Step back in time among the Qing and Ming dynasty masterpieces in Jianshui, and wander the busy streets of Kunming.
Follow the Yunnan-Vietnam railway and visit the one of the oldest train stations on this line at Bisezhai village for a fascinating glimpse into history
Explore idyllic Yuangyang on a guided half-day walk, snapping photos of the spectacular rice terrace landscapes and learning a thing or two about their makers, the Hani people
Discover the Ming and Qing marvels of Jianshui Ancient Town on a guided walk. Visit Zhu's Family Garden, the Confucius temple and the amazingly preserved Tuanshan village
Kunming is yours for the taking. Enjoy plenty of free time in the liveable, laid-back 'Spring City' to make your own discoveries
This trip visits destinations well off the usual tourist trail. It's a fantastic opportunity to see real life in parts of China many people wouldn't be able to find on a map, let alone consider visiting! You'll be without some of the comforts of home, including trying many new foods and experiences.
The border crossing from Vietnam to China will not be accompanied. Your Vietnam leader will say goodbye to you at the Vietnam border and your China leader will meet you once you go through immigration and customs.

Very nice travel style which put face to face with local people and other cultures. The possibility to try local food and customs is very valuable.
