Overview

Book
Experience the breadth of cultures, flavours and landscapes that make up the vast Middle Kingdom on one our most popular tours through China. Marvel at iconic attractions like the Great Wall and the Terracotta Warriors, then find a quieter side of the country with a cruise along the Yangzi River and a stay in a Buddhist monastery tucked into the mountains of Emei Shan. Discover a land of epic history, vibrant cultures and dramatic vistas on this 19-day China Experience.

Highlights

    • This is one of our most comprehensive trips in China, taking in key destinations from north to south with plenty of variety in experiences and sights along the way 
    • Travel by overnight train to get a sense of the vastness of this country, as well as zip between cities while you sleep easy on this high-speed rail network
    • Take through the iconic scenery of the Yangzi River as you meander through the dramatic Three Gorges Dam on a three-day cruise
    • No matter how many guide books you have read, nothing truly prepares you for the grandeur and immensity of historic sights like the Great Wall, Tiananmen Square, Leshan Big Buddha and the Terracotta Army. The country's modern man-made sights refuse to outdone, however, and you can see the modern equivalent of symbolic shows of power in the skyline of Shanghai and the Yangzi River hydroelectric dam 
    • Get up close to giant pandas in Chengdu and learn about their struggle for survival
    • Beyond adorable, endangered giant pandas, Chengdu is one of our favourite cities in China. Find out why our travellers end up falling in love with this emerging travel hotspot here: intrepidtravel.com/adventures/chengdu-china-travel-guide
    • Escape the cities to discover China's natural beauty. Trek up the misty peaks of Emei Shan for a stay in a monastery, waking to the sound of drums and prayers
    • Cycle through the Chinese countryside with backdrops that resemble paintings – the picturesque limestone karsts of Yangshuo, for example, grace the walls of conference rooms and Chinese embassy's around the world

It was an amazing experience! We would travel Intrepid to travel Asia again any time! We have traveled on tours all over the world, and she was the best tour leader we have had. She was extremely organized, competent, sociable and funny!

Kris was approachable, patient, accommodating, friendly, informative and an overall great tour leader. She routinely went above and beyond for fellow travelers. She visibly worked very hard throughout the tour in order to ensure that logistical issues were seamlessly taken care of. Kris was also able to adapt quickly to logistical set-backs whilst accommodating the needs of all tour members. Kris was an amazing tour leader. I would eagerly recommend her to anyone thinking of traveling within China.
