SPIRIT OF CHINA & THE YANGTZE RIVER

Tour: 2190  SHANGHAI  BEIJING
Spend 13 spellbinding days on your affordable tour of China, including a picturesque 4-night Yangtze River cruise. Your holiday in China begins in the exciting city of Shanghai on the Yangtze River delta. You’ll marvel at the exquisite Yu Yuan Gardens and the Shanghai Museum—with works of art dating 6,000 years old. Then, fly to Yichang to embark on your 4-night cruise on the legendary Yangtze River.

Before passing through the dramatic vistas of the Xiling Gorge, you’ll visit the monumental Three Gorges Dam. Disembark briefly from your ship to glide on the mysterious emerald waters of Shennong Stream on a boat excursion, then continue on the Yangtze through its dramatic gorges lined with forested mountain views. You’ll tour the Jade Emperor Scenic Area with its 100-foot-tall statue depicting the Taoiest deity. Disembark from your Yangtze River cruise for more adventures, beginning with a ride on the bullet train to Chengdu, where you’ll visit the Giant Panda Research Base. You’ll fly to Xi’an, one of China’s great ancient capitals, to see the emperor’s vault surrounded by the stunning find of its thousands of Terracotta Warriors, chariots, and horses guarding the tomb. In Beijing, take a guided tour of Tian’anmen Square past Mao’s Mausoleum. Visit the Forbidden City—the largest collection of China’s ancient buildings and home to the historic Ming and Qing dynasties. Your budget-minded tour of China includes once-in-a-lifetime experiences, including a visit to the iconic Great Wall of China. You’ll witness sweeping vistas from the wall that once stretched 4,000 miles across China’s barren northern terrain.

Your value-minded tour of China and the Yangtze River is a journey into a spirit of history, beauty, culture, and natural wonders like no other.
