ITINERARY

Show All Info

Today depart from Sydney for Beijing, China! Fly with award-winning Hainan Airlines. Upon arrival you will be met at the airport and transferred to your five-star hotel accommodation, where you spend the next three nights.

Overnight: 5 Star Beijing Hotel
Meals included: In-Flight

After breakfast, 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, known officially as the Imperial Palace Museum, was originally constructed by Emperor Yong Le, the third Emperor of the Ming Dynasty. The palace was built between 1406 and 1420, but was burnt down, rebuilt, sacked and renovated countless times over the centuries, so most of the architecture that can be seen today dates from the 1700s onwards.

Afterwards, visit a Pearl Factory to gain a little knowledge of fresh pearls. 

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

Overnight: 5 Star Beijing Hotel
Meals included: Breakfast

After breakfast you will travel to the Great Wall. En route, 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.

Following the museum visit, enjoy a scenic drive through the countryside and mountains to reach China’s most renowned monument—the Great Wall. You will visit the less-touristy and more original Juyong Pass, avoiding other sections which are the most accessible and consequently most crowded. The Great Wall meanders through China’s northern mountain ranges from the Yellow Sea to the Gobi Desert - a distance of more than 3500 miles. 

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. You will also visit a local family living in a courtyard style home to experience the local customs including a delicious home-cooked dinner. 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: 5 Star Beijing Hotel
Meals included: Breakfast;Lunch

Following breakfast at the hotel, visit Beijing Zoo to see adorable giant pandas. After the zoo, make a stop at ‘Tongrentang’ to learn more about traditional Chinese medicine. Afterwards transfer to Beijing Airport for your flight to Haikou. Upon arrival you will be met at the airport and transferred to the 5 star Hilton Haikou Meilan, where you will get to unwind for the next three nights.

Overnight: Hilton Haikou Meilan, Haikou, Hainan Island 
Meals included: Breakfast

After breakfast at the hotel, enjoy the day at leisure, or take the opportunity to join an optional half day city tour of Haikou, including a famous Hainan chicken dinner (not included).

Next you will visit Qilou Old Street, one of the most famous historic Chinese streets. With origins dating back around 2,000 years to ancient Greece. Arcade architecture was introduced to Haikou in the 1820s. It features a stylish fusion of European and Asian architecture, as well as Indian and Arabic influences. It’s certainly the most impressive example of arcade architecture in all of China. The last stop is Hainan Museum where you will get to see cultural relics and learn about the history of Hainan and minority nationalities. The optional tour also includes a famous Hainan Chicken dinner with a local beer.

TOUR GUIDE VS. TOUR LEADER

Tour Guide: 
Often locals with intimate knowledge of an area, its culture, and history. Their role entails providing commentary, routing the tour, and seeing that people have a good time. They are a licensed, qualified expert who supplies specific information on history, art, architecture and culture of the city/village/attraction in which he or she is guiding the tour. The guide meets the group at the required place and leaves the group at the end of the tour, they do not travel with the group. 
 
Tour Leader: 
An experienced person tasked with ensuring the smooth operation of tours, as well as providing practical support to passengers throughout the whole trip. Their role primarily includes assisting with accommodation, transportation between locations, and communication with tour guides in each stop. A tour leader may provide general guidance around a city or village, and offer information on the place visited on the bus, however they are not required to have specific knowledge on art, architecture, or history. They are not allowed to provide a guided tour or commentary of a city/village/attraction once there and if caught doing so, can be fined. 
 
Please note: Tour leaders/guides are not a standard inclusion in all travel offers. Tour leaders/guides will only be made available when particularly required to enhance the experience of the destination featured.
