The Experience

History buffs can rejoice during this tour showcasing treasures of Ancient China contrasted with the pearls of modern times. Beijing awaits for travellers with the most famous monument in the country - The Great Wall of China considered one of the new seven wonders of the world, as well as something from more recent history, 2008 Olympic Games sites. Unique customs and activities that were alive during dynasties can be experienced during the stay in Gubei Water Town and more marvels can be visited with a tour to Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City. Exploration of Longmen Grottoes will be followed by a visit to the Shaolin Temple and a long and breath-taking cruise over the Yangtze River, the largest river in Asia and the third-largest in the world.
