What our specialists say...
This itinerary combines the highlights of 'classic' China; the Great Wall, the Forbidden City, the Terracotta Warriors and the beautiful karst peak scenery of the south west, with something a little different. You'll also discover the seaside city of Xiamen with its beautiful gardens and interesting colonial architecture, before delving deeper into Fujian province to explore the Hakka minority earthen 'tulou houses': large, circular buildings comprised entirely of wood, mud and bamboo and built to house several families. The itinerary finishes with time in the metropolitan Shanghai.
