    China's Wonders, Past and Present

    Explore the Great Wall, Terracotta Warriors, the Yangtze River, Shanghai, and Hong Kong


    History  •  cities  •  villages

    This special trip reflects past JOURNEYS travelers' favorite China sights and experiences.  You can't see all of this massive and very diverse country in one trip, but this exploration takes you deep into Chinese history, nature, and the fabled countryside. You will visit must-see sights like the Great Wall, Forbidden City, Xi'an Terracotta Warriors, Yangtze River, Shanghai, Guilin, Yangshuo and Hong Kong with lots of cultural encounters along the way.  You will travel by air, train, and car, and enjoy a three-night river cruise in a modern ship on the Yangtze.  Contrast ultra-modern Shanghai with the gardens of Suzhou and the aesthetic rural charms and landscapes of Yangshou and Guilin. Finish your trip with two-nights in Hong Kong, perhaps the most extraordinary and legendary of Asia gateway cities.  Local English-speaking expert licensed guides provide private and personalized services at each stop.

    “I was very pleased with JOURNEYS’ services. I suspect we had more special requests than most of your customers, and your staff were very gracious and accommodating. We really enjoyed the tour of the historic hutongs in Beijing, and we loved Yangshou. We thought that Xian's Terracotta warriors were impressive!" ~Allyson Ault
