Insider Getaways - : China: See the Great Wall on an Eight-Day Tour with Return Flights, 4-5 Star Accommodation, Most Meals, High Speed Train, Guide and More from 1st Retreats

China is a land of paradoxes. Dripping in imperial architecture and crowned by the majestic Great Wall, it is one of the world’s oldest civilisations, where the lush bamboo-clad mountains are recognisable from ancient art scrolls. Meanwhile, futuristic metropolises like Beijing and Shanghai are packed with gleaming skyscrapers, and mouth-watering flavours waft through the streets.

Embrace China’s cultural riches with today’s Groupon for 1st Retreats:

• $1599 for an eight-day tour for one person ($3250 value)
With seven nights’ 4-5 star hotel accommodation, return economy flights to Beijing with China Southern Airlines ex. Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane or Perth daily buffet breakfast, six lunches and five dinners, transfers and sightseeing as specified including high speed train travel, and an English-speaking guide

The Flights
As part of this special package, Groupies enjoy return flights with China Southern Airlines, which is the world’s fifth largest airline and the biggest in Asia. With a strong safety record and a high standard of service, passengers are treated to a comfortable flight with a variety of entertainment options. Groupies fly from their choice of Sydney, Melbourne or Brisbane to Beijing, returning home from Shanghai at the end of the tour.

The Experience
At Beijing Airport, travellers are met by their friendly 1st Retreats guide at the airport, and transported to a 4 or 5-star hotel for their first night in China. After a few days exploring Beijing’s highlights like the magnificent Great Wall, Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City, Groupies take a high-speed train through scenic countryside to Wuxi. From here the journey continues via spectacular gardens, thousand-year old towns, pearl shops and silk factories to Suzhou and Hangzhou. Last stop is Shanghai where peeps can shop up a storm and wander by the stunning art deco architecture of The Bund, before flying home to Australia. Most meals are included, and an English-speaking guide is on hand throughout the tour to help peeps discover China’s fascinating history and hippest new hotspots.
