China's Yangste River and Tibet: Your Way

On what can only be described as the “best of China”, you will get to experience many facets of this diverse country. From the bustling cities to the rural countryside and the tradition of Tibet, you will be enchanted by the history and progress in this fast-moving nation. Your trip will begin in Beijing, where you will ride to the legendary Great Wall of China and stand on its famous ramparts. You will visit the Forbidden City with its elegant palaces, pavilions and landscaped gardens, once open only to nobility. In Xi’an you will observe an archaeological wonder: 8,000 life-sized Terracotta Warriors buried with Emperor Qin Shi Huang. An exciting journey by train across the "roof of the world" will take you to Lhasa, the economic, spiritual and cultural center of Tibet. Here you will visit the residences of the Dalai Lama and many of the region's spectacular monasteries. Your adventures continue with a cruise through the Yangtse River, the heartland of China, which will delight the senses as you float beneath limestone cliffs and explore the ghost city of Fengdu. Your adventure culminates in Shanghai where you will take in the old and the new of the largest city in China.
