Itinerary

Day 1: Arrival in Beijing

Accommodation: The Great Wall Hotel Beijing  - the former Sheraton

When you arrive in Beijing today, our guide will meet you at the airport and transfer you to the reserved hotel. We suggest you have a good rest at the hotel to get refreshed.

Day 2: Beijing

Meals: Western buffet breakfast and A la carte welcome lunch

The prelude of your China tour is going to be opened while visiting Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City this morning. You could walk around the world largest city square for a while and then go across Chang'an Avenue to the well-preserved Forbidden City. As one of the world's largest imperial palace, Forbidden City is said to have more than 9,000 houses and over one million cultural relics. While you are walking on the flat stone path, our guide will also provide information and interesting stories of the palace's history and culture.

Then an a la carte welcome lunch (valued at CNY150.00 per person and included in our price) is served at a very nice restaurant to taste the authentic Chinese food and the crispy Roast Duck.

In the afternoon, visit another imperial site, the Temple of Heaven, where emperors in the Ming and Qing dynasties offered sacrifice to heaven and prayed for good harvest for the country. Afterwards, a wonderful Chinese Kung Fu Show will be arranged for your enjoyment at the Red Theatre.

Day 3: Beijing

Meals: Western buffet breakfast

Morning excursion transfers you to China Great Wall - Mutianyu section. It will be too much tiring to climb up the steps to the wall in Mutianyu, so we have included the cable car up and down for you. Walking on the wall, you will see the majestic great wall and beacon towers, as well as the gorgeous landscape.

Lunch is arranged on your own. As restaurants nearby the site are in low quality, we do not arrange it. It may be the best that you have a big breakfast and have some fast food for lunch by yourself. Or you may turn to your guide for suggestions.

On the way back to downtown, you will have a photo stop at the Olympic National Stadium, namely the Bird's Nest. After that, a visit to a featured local market follows. You will enjoy some free time to explore the market before you are taken back to the hotel.

Day 4: Beijing - Xi'an

Meals: Western buffet breakfast and A la carte lunch

Accommodation: Sheraton Hotel

The morning visit takes you to the imperial garden of the Qing Dynasty, the Summer Palace, which is the largest and best preserved royal garden in the world. The whole garden mainly consists of the Longevity Hill and the Kunming Lake. The Long Gallery, 728 meters (796.2 yards) in length, boasts as the longest gallery in China's gardens. Beginning from the Yaoyue (Inviting-Moon) Gate and ending at Shizhang Pavilion, the Long Gallery ingeniously links Longevity Hill with Kunming Lake. Then following our guide, you will trace the old Beijing culture by walking through the original Hutong alleys, appreciate the oldest gray brick courtyard residence and capture the lifestyles of local families. What's more, a special experience of making Chinese Paper Cutting will be arranged for you.

We will serve you an a la carte lunch (valued at CNY150.00 per person and included in our price) at a fancy restaurant with delicious food and great atmosphere. After that, take an afternoon flight to Xi'an and check in at the hotel upon arrival.

Day 5: Xi'an

Meals: Western buffet breakfast, Home-cooked a la carte lunch and Dumpling Dinner

 After breakfast, we will drive to the Terracotta Army Museum. The warriors were discovered accidentally by local farmers when they were digging a well, thus unveiled a grand underground army. When you are in the museum, you will be shocked by life-sized clay soldiers and horses that stand neatly in formations. The bronze chariot and horses are considered as the crown of bronze for its design and process of making more than 2,000 years ago are very similar to modern engineer structures.

Around noon, drive back to the city for a special and authentic home cooked a la carte lunch at a local family.

Afterwards, visit the Small Wild Goose Pagoda & Xi''an Museum. A splendid evening is in store when you will be entertained by the Tang Dynasty Music and Dance Show when partaking of the famous Dumpling Dinner.

Friendly Tips

Clients visiting in Jan, Feb, Mar and Dec need to arrange the dinner and evening activity on their own for this day, since the theater is usually not open at that time.

Day 6: Xi'an - Shanghai

Meals: Western buffet breakfast and A la carte lunch

Accommodation: Crowne Plaza Century Park Shanghai

After breakfast, we will take a walk on the City Wall Park. It is a popular venue for local people to spend their leisure time and a good chance for you to get to know more about their daily life. With the nice environment and great atmosphere, you will learn to practice Tai Chi with the master. Then we ascend to the old City Wall. As a part of the city's defending systems, the wall's thickness is even larger than height so that soldiers and chariots could run on the top. Today, we get a chance for a bike ride on the wall (the cost is on your own), and this has been proved to be very popular among most visitors.

After an a la carte lunch (valued at CNY120.00 per person and included in our price) is served at a well-known local restaurant, you will take a flight to Shanghai. Our local guide will meet and escort you to the hotel.

Day 7: Shanghai

Meals: Western buffet breakfast and A la carte lunch

This morning, you will first visit Shanghai Museum, which houses a large collection of cultural relics, such as bronze wares, chinaware, ancient Chinese paintings and calligraphy works. Then go ahead to the famous Yu Garden and its nearby traditional bazaar. Yu Garden is one of the best Chinese gardens in the finest preservation in Shanghai. Its pavilions, rockery, pools, flowers make it a land of peace and leisure in the bustling Shanghai.

An a la carte lunch (valued at CNY150.00 per person and included in our price) will be served for you today to taste the authentic Shanghai cuisine.

After lunch, you will explore the Former French Concession, the thriving Bund area and take a one-hour cruise tour on the Huangpu River. You will be impressed by different scenes on the two banks of the river - rows of skyscrapers on the east showing the modernness while the old western-style buildings telling the history of the colonial times of Shanghai. Our guide will transfer you back to your hotel and say you bon voyage in the lobby.

Day 8: Shanghai - Hong Kong

Meals: Western buffet breakfast

Accommodation: Regal Kowloon Hotel

After breakfast, check out of the hotel and find your own way to the Pudong Airport to catch your flight to Hong Kong. We will issue air tickets for you. You can charter a taxi from the hotel, costing about CNY150 per cab. Upon arrival in Hong Kong, you can make your way to the 4-star Regal Kowloon Hotel via either of the following ways.

Airport Shuttle Bus:

The bus is available every 1.5 to 2 hours from 07:10 to 23:35 daily. The single way ticket costs HK$130 per person. Please follow the signs to take the shuttle bus and get off at Regal Kowloon Hotel by yourself. The ride takes around 45 minutes.

Public Bus A21:

It is available from 06:00 to 24:00 daily. The ticket costs HK$33 per person. You can take it for 15 stops to Mody Road and then walk for about 5 minutes to the hotel. Check in and have a good rest.

Day 9: Hong Kong

Meals: Western buffet breakfast

Breakfast is served at the hotel. After that, you can start your one-day independent exploration in Hong Kong. We suggest you have a peak tram ride to reach the Victoria Peak and enjoy the city panorama.

After having lunch at the Central Area, you can take a bus to Stanley Market and enjoy a sunbath on the soft beach of Repulse Bay where the richest Hong Kong people live around. If time permits, you can go to explore the local fishermen's life in Aberdeen.

Day 10: Departure from Hong Kong

Meals: Western buffet breakfast

Check out of the hotel before noon and take the airport shuttle bus or citybus No. A21 to the airport for your homebound flight. If you want to extend your stay in Hong Kong, we will be glad to assist. Wish you a smooth journey home!

We have returned from our tour to China realizing that we have only just started on our discovery of a beautiful country and must definitely plan future visits. Thank you for accommodating our last minute changes when we were in China. May I suggest that in future you warn visitor who are on googlemail that they may not be able to communicate with you through that method when in China. I know I found it rather frustrating. I used text but sometimes these did not always work. Other than that, we were overall satisfied with your arrangements.

Generally speaking, we enjoyed our time in China. Our hotels were all good and in reasonable locations. Our guides were fantastic friendly & helpful. We preferred the female guides to the man he was too loud and a bit creepy. Our drivers again friendly and safe. The food was fantastic, we ate at a restaurant we would never have chosen ourselves. I would add in an extra night in each city so we have some free time and to relax more.

I am so glad that I heard about this tour, it was truly fantastic. Our vacation went smoothly and everything was handled for us, which was great. Our guide Tina was so nice, friendly, funny, and very knowledgeable about Chinese history and made learning about the country and its culture very fun and entertaining. Our driver was very good and we felt safe with his driving. The hotel was great for the price that we paid and the breakfast was excellent, we have no complaints. At the end of the trip, Tina gave us the feedback questionnaire to fill out and gave us privacy to do so, the form was filled out by my sister, Mabelyn Romani. Our Beijing trip is truly a success thanks to TCG. We would recommend their service to anyone going to China.
