11 days from Beijing to Shanghai

Vacation Overview

Delve into the unique world of China during this magnificent tour as you explore Beijing, Xi’an, Guilin, and Shanghai. As you’d expect from a vacation to China, a highlight is your visit to the Great Wall of China. Known as one of the New Seven Wonders of the World, it is the only man-made object that can be seen from space by the naked eye. As you walk along the wall, see how expansive it is and imagine what it was like to construct the wall—at a time without modern machinery to help! As if the Great Wall of China is not enough to astonish you, wait until you see the Terracotta Warriors in Xi’an. Discovered accidentally in 1974, construction on the roughly 8,000 soldiers, chariots, and horses started in 210 BC—all to help China’s first emperor in the afterlife.

These are just sample of the many highlights you’ll see on this China tour. You’ll also be entertained by a show of music and dance from the Tang Dynasty, which reigned over 1,000 years ago. Ride a rickshaw through one of Beijing’s hutongs, the city’s ancient alleys—an out-of-the-ordinary experience included by Globus to make your vacation unique. Natural beauty abounds in Guilin where you cruise on the stunning Li River and visit a local tea farm for a hands-on demonstration of the tea-making process and a tea ceremony. In Shanghai, Globus has arranged a traditional dim sum feast at a local restaurant and a cruise on the Huangpu River for stunning views of the Bund.

History, amazing sights, cosmopolitan cuisine, and loads of fun await you on this fascinating China tour. It’s a vacation of a lifetime!
