The Itinerary

Day 1: Australia – Beijing, China (In-Flight Meals)
Today depart from either Sydney, Melbourne, *Brisbane, *Adelaide or *Perth for Beijing (via Guangzhou, Shenzhen or Shanghai). Fly with China Southern Airlines. Upon arrival, a tour representative will meet you at the airport and then escort you to check into your hotel.

Overnight: Chang An Grand Hotel OR Schonbrunn Hotel, Beijing

Day 2: Tiananmen Square & Forbidden City (B)
Your exploration of Beijing 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 successionally. 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 1700’s and onwards. Afterwards, visit a Pearl Factory to gain a little knowledge of fresh pearls.

In the afternoon, take the opportunity to join an optional tour (not included) to see Beijing’s 700 year old Hutong's (narrow lanes) area by old fashioned pedicab as well as visit a local family living in a courtyard style home to experience the local customs of old Beijing people and their unique architectural structure. The optional tour also includes a visit to Shichahai, a historic scenic area consisting of three lakes (Qianhai, meaning Front Sea; Houhai, meaning Back Sea and Xihai, meaning West Sea), surrounding places of historic interest and scenic beauty and remnants of old-style local residences, Hutong and Courtyard.

Overnight: Chang An Grand Hotel OR Schonbrunn Hotel, Beijing

Day 3: Great Wall Of China (B,L)
On the way to the Great Wall you will make a 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. Visit the less-visited and more original Juyong Pass and try to avoid other sections which are the most accessible and consequently the most crowded. The Great Wall meanders through China's northern mountain ranges from the Yellow Sea to the Gobi Desert—a distance of over 3500 miles!

Tonight, take the opportunity to attend an optional large scale dramatic musical, “The Golden Mask Dynasty” (not included).

Overnight: Chang An Grand Hotel OR Schonbrunn Hotel, Beijing

Day 4: Beijing - Suzhou (High speed bullet train experience) (B)
Enjoy a high speed bullet train experience from Beijing to Suzhou (approximately a 5-hour journey). Suzhou, which dates back to 514 BC, is sometimes called the "Venice of the East". Visit Shan Tang Street, which has always been regarded as the first name of Suzhou ancient streets. It has a long history of about 1,100 years, its layout and architecture are the best to represent the characteristics of Suzhou's old alleys, and it has connections to many ancient Chinese celebrities and anecdotes. Take the opportunity to cruise along the Grand Canal (not included) to view life along China’s ancient waterway.

Overnight: Vienna International Hotel OR Nanya Hotel, Suzhou

Day 5: Suzhou - Hangzhou (B)
Today visit the famous Lingering Garden. The Lingering Garden is a renowned classical Chinese garden and is recognised with other classical Suzhou gardens as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. China is known for its silk, so of course a visit to the Silk Spinning Factory is in order.

Afterwards drive to Hangzhou (approximately a 2-hour coach ride). 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 and how to appreciate the sophisticated taste and aroma of Longjing tea. At the Tea House, learn how to make the Longjing Tea including tea leaves picking, frying and tasting.

Overnight: Pujing Garden Hotel OR Hai Wai Hai Baina Hotel, Hangzhou

Day 6: Hangzhou – Shanghai (B)
This morning start this amazing day with a small boat ride on the West Lake another UNESCO World Heritage Site, which reveals the ethereal beauty of Hangzhou's willow draped islands. Afterwards drive to Shanghai (approximately a 2-hour coach ride) to visit the famous Bund. Shanghai is divided by the Huangpu 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 take the opportunity to watch a superb and thrilling Chinese Acrobatic Show “ERA: The Intersection of Time” (not included).

Overnight: Koyal International Hotel / Regal Plaza Hotel & Residence OR Holiday Inn Express, Shanghai

Enjoy some free time at leisure this afternoon or join an optional half-day tour of Shanghai (not included) including Yu Garden, believed to have been built in the Ming Dynasty, more than 400 years ago. The exquisite layout, beautiful scenery, and the artistic style of the garden architecture have made the garden one of the highlights of Shanghai. Other attractions include Xintiandi, Old Town and Nanjing Road. In the evening, take the opportunity to join the optional “Night Cruise on the Huangpu River” (not included).

Overnight: Koyal International Hotel / Regal Plaza Hotel & Residence OR Holiday Inn Express, Shanghai

Day 2: Xi’an Sightseeing and Terracotta Warriors & Horses (B,L)
This morning first visit the Small Wild Goose Pagoda, a major tourist site located on the central axis of the Jianfu Temple in south Xi’an. The Small Wild Goose Pagoda in the temple is very delicate in appearance and is completely built of stone. The top three floors have been damaged, and it really adds to the appeal of the pagoda. As a national AAAA scenic spot and a world heritage site, the Buddhist pagoda survives from the Tang Dynasty.

Afterwards visit the Terracotta Warriors Reproduction Factory. The highlight today is a visit to the Terracotta Warriors & Horses Museum to see the life-sized defending army to the first emperor of China, Qin Shi Huang. Unearthed near Xi’an, the hundreds of life size sculptures of soldiers, chariots and horses are considered a world wonder. With different facial expressions and weaponry adorning each soldier, the Terracotta Warriors were intended to convey the Qin Emperor into the afterlife. This site is among the top archaeological excavations of the 20th century. You will be definitely amazed by the scale of the Terracotta Warriors Army.

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to China in May this year, it was just wow from start to finish, the accommodation was 5 star, the weather was perfect! blue skies... our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable, funny and helpful. the sights were amazing, we met some wonderful new friends, i highly recommend China as a holiday destination and TripADeal as a travel agent. Can’t wait to book our next trip with TripADeal.

We returned from our trip to China happy with accommodations, tour inclusions, local tour guides and our wonderful fellow travellers. We enjoyed wonderful experiences and sharing these with people on the tour. China was an amazing country to visit. So many pinch me moments such as climbing the great wall, the terracotta warriors, walking through the Forbidden City cruising down the Yangtze, riding the Maglev train and not but least the sheer scale of cities.Which Tripadeal next is the dilemma.

China has always been high on our "bucket list", especially the opportunity to climb The Great Wall. When we came across this holiday offered by TripADeal we didn't hesitate to book. Our China holiday exceeded our expectations in every way. We saw some fantastic places and made many new friends. We have since had a TripADeal to Binna Burra and are about to book another to Nepal. We highly recommend TripADeal both for the value it provides and for the lasting memories you will cherish forever.
