Tiananmen Square is an absolute must see whilst in the city.

Day 14: Tiananmen Square & Forbidden City (Beijing), China (B)

This morning after breakfast drive onwards to Beijing to begin your exploration of this amazing city. The tour begins with a visit to Tiananmen Square, one of the largest public squares in the world, and then takes in the Imperial Palace in the Forbidden City. The Forbidden City, also known officially as the Imperial Palace Museum, was originally constructed by the third Emperor of the Ming Dynasty, Emperor Yong Le, where 24 emperors once lived in succession. The palace was built between 1406 and 1420, but was burnt down, rebuilt, sacked and renovated countless times, so most of the architecture you can see today dates from the 1700s and onwards. Afterwards, visit a Pearl Factory to gain a little knowledge on fresh pearls. Tonight, take the opportunity to attend an optional large-scale dramatic musical, “The Golden Mask Dynasty” (not included).

Day 15: Great Wall of China (Beijing), China (B, L)

On the way to the Great Wall, stop at a Jade Museum to learn the history of jade. In Chinese, jade is pronounced as “Yu”, and it has a history in China of at least four thousand years. Observe the skilled artisans at work as they create their intricate designs. Afterwards, take a scenic drive through the countryside and mountains to reach China’s most renowned monument—the Great Wall. You will visit the less-touristy and more original Juyong Pass, avoiding other sections which are the most accessible and consequently most crowded. The Great Wall meanders through China’s northern mountain ranges from the Yellow Sea to the Gobi Desert – more than 3500 miles long. In the afternoon, join an optional tour to see Beijing’s 700-year old Hutongs (narrow alleys) area by old fashioned pedicab (not included), as well as a visit to a local family living in a courtyard style home to experience the local customs of the people of Beijing and their home’s unique architectural structure.

Day 16: Beijing to Suzhou (B)

Today is your chance to become experts in traditional Chinese medicine, a 5000-year-old practice that embodies herbal medicine, acupuncture, massage, exercise and dietary therapy. Based on the concept of a connection between mind, body and environment to prevent and manage diseases, elements of its natural and holistic approach are widely adopted in Western medicine. With your mind and body at ease, enjoy a high-speed train experience to the harmonious city of Suzhou, praised for its classical gardens, canals and bridges.

Day 17: Suzhou to Wuxi, China (B)

Often called the ‘Venice of the East’, Suzhou has a history dating back to 541BC. Visit the famous Lingering Garden, recognised with other classical Suzhou gardens as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. China is renowned for its exquisite silk, so naturally a visit to the Silk Spinning Factory is in order. Take the opportunity to cruise along the Grand Canal (not included) to view life along China’s ancient waterway. Next, drive to Wuxi and enjoy free time at leisure in Nanchang Street, a famous ancient street showcasing the juxtaposition of traditional and modern living.

Day 18: Wuxi to Hangzhou, China (B)

This morning visit Li Lake Park, the habitat of egrets and many rare species of birds. View the picturesque Taihu Lake, the second biggest freshwater lake in China, and then visit a Pearl Outlet to learn about the cultural significance of the traditional Chinese pearl. Afterwards, drive to Hangzhou and visit the West Lake, another UNESCO World Heritage Site, that epitomises the ethereal beauty of Hangzhou’s willow draped islands.

Day 19: Hangzhou to Shanghai, China (B)

Hangzhou is considered the tea capital of China, so a visit to the city just isn’t complete without a trip to a local tea house. Make a special visit to the Tea House at Meijiawu Tea Village located at the hinterland of West Lake Park which is considered one of the most important Longjing Tea productions in China. Enjoy the natural environment and beautiful village scenery while learning more about their special tea culture. At the Tea House, learn how to make the Longjing Tea including picking, frying and tasting the tea leaves. Then enjoy a small boat ride on the West Lake another UNESCO World Heritage Site, which reveals the ethereal beauty of Hangzhou’s willow draped islands. Next, drive to Shanghai to visit the famous Bund. Shanghai is divided by the Huang Pu River into eastern and western sections. Modern mega high rises are seen on the eastern side while traditional European style architecture may be seen on the western side. The Bund is a five-block riverfront promenade with many of Shanghai’s banks and trading houses. Tonight, there is an optional activity to watch a thrilling Chinese Acrobatic Show “ERA: The Intersection of Time” (not included).

Day 20-22: Shanghai, China (B)
