The Experience

The encounter with China starts in Beijing, the country’s fast-beating heart which blends racing towards the future with ancient sights like the Great Wall of China and Forbidden City. Then, the tour makes its way via Wuxi, an ancient city famous for its scenic Lake Tai and lush greenery, the canal-crossed Suzhou, and a tea plantation where travellers can cleanse their pallets before heading to Shanghai, the commercial epicentre of the country and the final stop of the tour.
