Day 3  Beijing

Great Wall is one of the greatest architecture projects in human history. The perfectly preserved section is Badaling, which is located 60 kilometers at the northwest of the city. This morning we will transfer you to climb the Great Wall and go to a jade factory later.

As it is in the mountain area, the meals offered by restaurants nearby are not good and worthy to eat. In this case, we suggest you have a hearty breakfast at the hotel this morning and then have some fast food for lunch at noon by yourself.

In the afternoon, we will head to the Sacred Way. You will walk trough the most interesting part of the Sacred Way along with many vivid animals and human stone figures. At the end of the day trip, we will transfer by the Olympic National Stadium for you to see the big Bird's Nest at a distance.

Meals: Western buffet breakfast

Day 4  Beijing - Xian

After finishing the check-out process, you will be escorted to visit the Summer Palace, which used to be the summer resort for royal families and emperors to deal with the various issues and have fun here during the hottest days of the year. Then go to a pearl store.

Followed is an a la carte lunch (valued at CNY150.00 per person and included in our price) at a good local restaurant.

We will take you to the old Hutong area, where there are narrow alleys lined with ancient style residential houses, to get a taste of the traditional features of the city. Then you will go on to the next destination Xian by taking an afternoon flight. The local driver will await you on time at the airport and then accompany you to check in the hotel.

Day 5  Xian

It is a full and interesting day. We will take you out of downtown to see the Terracotta Army, which is a huge project of three bury pits built by Emperor Qinshihuang, the first emperor who united the nation in ancient times. The life-sized terracotta army well represents his ambition even to be realized in the nether world. A pottery-making factory is arranged later.

Then move to a local family. The elaborately prepared a la carte dishes (valued at CNY120.00 per person and included in our price) coupled with the hosts' cordial hospitality make your lunch a rememberable experience. Especially, learning Chinese dishes cooking recipes with the host would be a unique experience for your escorted China tour.

After the family visit, you will proceed to the Xian Museum and then visit the Small Wild Goose Pagoda, an ancient Buddhist stupa with unique structure and elegant appearance. Tonight an exceptional performance is waiting for your attendance. It is the Tang Dynasty Music and Dance Show of exceeding sweetness displaying the prosperity of the culture in the Tang Dynasty. Before the show, you will have a Dumpling dinner.

Day 6  Xian

This morning, you will climb up the ancient City Wall. Compassing the old city with a circuit of 13,700 meters, the square city wall is as thicker as 14 meters, so visitors may rent a bicycle and take a ride on the wall. After that, our guide will lead you to the treasure house of northwest China, the Provincial History Museum, which collects a large number of rare historical relics illustrating the achievements of different eras.

You will have a gratifying a la carte lunch (valued at CNY120.00 per person and included in our price) at a fine local eatery.

Day 7  Xian - Guilin

Set off to Guilin by a morning flight, meet the local guide and get to the hotel. You will have lunch by yourself. The local guide will offer you some suggestions upon request.

After that, you will be transferred to visit the Reed Flute Cave. Reputed as the 'Natural Art Palace', the Reed Flute Cave is mainly made up of stalactites, stalagmites, and stone pillars, which were naturally formed in different shapes and poses. Shined in different colors of lights, the cave is like a fairyland.

Meals: Western buffet breakfast
Accommodation: Guilin Bravo Hotel or Sheraton Hotel

Day 8 Guilin - Yangshuo - Guilin

Your trip will never be complete if you come to Guilin but do not take a Li River cruise. Usually Li River refers to the section from Guilin to Yangshuo, which is also the best and the most splendid part. Our guide will also show you some famous spots that Li River boasts during the about four hours' journey.

Here we would like to remind you the lunch on the cruise is not that good. It is the simple lunch box, but we have no other choice since it is provided by the cruise company. We can only say it is edible but far from delicious. We suggest you have a big breakfast at the hotel this morning.

When the cruise arrives at Yangshuo, we will drive you to the countryside area to visit rural sceneries, along with a local peasant's home. Now it is time for us to get back to Guilin. Before transferring you back to the hotel, we will take you to visit the Elephant Trunk Hill. You don't need to climb up the hill. It is just like a park, but deserves a visit.

Meals: Western buffet breakfast, Lunch

Day 9  Guilin - Chengdu

A morning flight will take you to Chengdu today. When you arrive, we will greet you at Chengdu airport and escort you to check in at the hotel. With all kinds of rich resources, Chengdu enjoys the reputation of being a 'Heavenly Land of Plenty'. And now Chengdu has become an ideal city for many young graduates. They would rather work and live here than go to big cities like Beijing and Shanghai. Therefore, we would leave you free to know a bit about this city on your own in the afternoon.

Meals: Western buffet breakfast
Accommodation: Holiday Inn Chengdu Oriental Plaza 

Day 10  Chengdu

We all know that Chengdu is the home of pandas, so the first stop today is surely about pandas. Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding is not far from the city center, about half an hour's journey. But you still need to get up early today if you want to see pandas at their best. Usually the keepers will feed pandas at about 08:00 to 09:00. At this time, all pandas will come out to wait, and then they begin to eat and play. At about 11:00 pandas are full and most of them go to sleep. So according to our experiences the best time to visit the panda base is from 08:30 to 10:00 in the morning.

This afternoon, we will head to Jinsha Site Museum. Jinsha Site can trace back to about 3,000 years ago. There were many gold articles unearthed in the site, but the most highlight ones are the Gold Foil of Sun and Immortal Bird and the Gold Mask. A 4D Cinema 'Dream Back to Jinsha' which takes more than 20 minutes will present you the complete history vividly and take you back to the period. After the history and culture appreciation, it's time for you to get relaxed. The Broad and Narrow Alleys is your last stop of today. Just take your time to stroll in the leisurely alleys. It is a very popular place not only for travelers also for locals.

Meals: Western buffet breakfast

Day 11  Departure from Chengdu

Our group tour comes to the end today. The hotel check out time is 12:00 at noon. Since clients will have different flight schedules to leave Chengdu, we do not include the airport see-off service today. You can charter a taxi to the airport at about CNY100.00 per cab. Wish you a smooth and pleasant journey!
