A legendary China trip with bucket-list excursions, from the Great Wall and Terracotta Army to the Shanghai Bazaars – with all travel and discounted single rates

Discover the charms of China on this bucket-list trip to three unforgettable destinations – and three unforgettable luxury hotels, as you embark on guided tours, see world-famous sights and explore the sprawling metropolises at your own leisure.

You’ll kick off in Beijing, where you’ll take a tour of the city's top sights, from Tiananmen Square (the largest square in the world), the Forbidden City, and the Temple of Heaven, before heading to the Great Wall – an ancient wonder which stretches for some 13,000 miles and dates back to the third century BC. You'll also squeeze in a visit to the Beijing Olympic Park where you can admire the futuristic design of the famous Bird's Nest Stadium and 'Water Cube' National Aquatics Center.

Then, you'll take the bullet train to Xi'an. While here, you'll come face-to-face with the world-renowned Terracotta Warriors, an army of 8,000 stone statues built over 2,000 years ago by emperor Qinshi Huangdi. Discover the intricate art of Chinese calligraphy at a local museum and immerse yourself in the sights and sounds of the Muslim Quarter, before choosing to enjoy a sumptuous dumpling banquet, before taking another high-speed train to your final destination..

Dive head-first into the hustle and bustle of China's largest metropolis and economic epicentre, Shanghai. During your sojourn here, you'll visit unmissable sights like Yuyuan Garden, Shanghai Museum and the Bund, plus a silk-spinning factory. There's also the option to see the water town of Suzhou, which is laced with canals, criss-crossed with bridges and peppered with classical gardens.
