Get ready for a fun-filled adventure! Pack your bags and board the train to Xian, one of China's most historical cities! This ancient capital city located in Shaanxi Province is the hometown of the famous Terracotta Warriors among other world renowned sights and attractions. Next, head to Shanghai! Known as the "Oriental Pearl," this modern metropolis lies on the estuary of the Yangtze River and is impressive for its amount of historical sites as well as unique modern architecture. Stroll along the historical Bund while staring up at some of the tallest buildings in the world, including the Oriental Pearl TV tower. After Shanghai, break away to the nearby city of Suzhou, our last destination before returning to Beijing. Reputed as the "Oriental Venice" due to its abundant ponds and streams and water towns, Suzhou is sure to touch your heart. Enjoy exquisite Chinese cuisine in each of your destinations and experience all the entertainment and nightlife that China has to offer. Free time is included at every stop along the way to make sure you have some time to plan your own itinerary.
Imagine yourself now taking in the lush scenery of the winding Great Wall, strolling along paths once walked by the Emperors of China in the Forbidden City, bicycling through the narrow alleys of traditional Chinese neighborhoods, seeing in person every dimension of the Terracotta Warriors, boating through the pathways of an ancient water town, breathing in all of China's local life and tasting all the delicious treats and cuisines along the way, all while training in the benefits and uses of traditional Chinese medicine.
