China Vacations

China tours are a popular way to explore the largest country in Asia. Escorted vacations combine the essentials of sightseeing with the convenience of pre-arranged hotel accommodations and motorcoach transportation. A skilled driver and knowledgeable tour guide will accompany you. We also offer independent tours in China, which are air and hotel packages at tour operators' low negotiated rates with ample free time to explore on your own. Many China vacations include a cruising portion on the Yangtze River.

Among the well-known sights of China tours are the Forbidden City in the center of Beijing, the Ming Tombs near the city and the terra-cotta warriors guarding the mausoleum of Emperor Qin Shi Huang near Xi'an. On many itineraries, you'll see the famed Tian'anmen Square, an enormous public meeting place stretching across 100 acres. A visit to the magnificent Great Wall of China is a frequent inclusion. Many tours include a stay in Shanghai, where you can visit a silk factory or the renowned Shanghai Museum. Hong Kong is another hot spot, as its Stanley Market gives international shoppers the chance to browse inexpensive clothing, arts and crafts.

Cultural enrichment is an integral part of the experience. You might take in a performance of the Peking Opera, with bright, bold costumes and dramatic plots, or an acrobat performance in Shanghai.

Your vacation would not be complete without opportunities to savor authentic Chinese cuisine, and you'll sit down to meals centered around local flavors that stem from centuries of cooking customs. If you are the type who appreciates the chance to taste the local cuisine when you travel, China will not disappoint.
