Beijing With an illustrious 500,000-year history, China's capital is a sightseer's dream. The ruling seat of the Yuan, Ming and Qing dynasties between 1271 and 1911, the city is a compelling mix of old and new, with old teahouses mingling with skyscrapers and landmarks such as haunting Tiananmen Square standing alongside the Forbidden Palace, the lavish, 9,000-room home of 24 Chinese emperors. Away from the city lie two further stunning testaments to China's grandeur - the exquisite gardens of the Summer Palace and the 4,000-mile-long Great Wall, constructed between the 3rd century BC and 1700s to protect against invasion. Shanghai Once called the 'Pearl of the Orient', buzzing Shanghai is China's largest and most cosmopolitan city yet still boasts a colourful old quarter and elegant architecture recalling its time as a glamorous colonial outpost. No trip to this exhilarating city would be complete without seeing the beautiful 'Bund' riverfront promenade, lined with graceful Art Deco buildings, or the enchanting Jade Buddha Temple, a complex of classical pavilions housing two Buddha statues carved from sparkling white jade. Another spectacular attraction is the Shanghai Municipal History Museum with its vast displays of ancient Chinese artefacts, calligraphy and imperial Ming jades, furnishings and treasures.
DAY 1 : Depart UK.

DAY 2 : Arrive Beijing.

On arrival you will be met by our representative and transferred to your hotel for a three night stay.
DAY 3 : Beijing.

A fascinating day lies ahead with a sightseeing tour in the cultural centre of China. See Tiananmen Square, the largest public square in the world, and the magnificent Forbidden City, a palace complex that housed successive emperors for over 500 years. Your day also includes a visit to the glorious Summer Palace, a park of lakeside pagodas, ornate pavilions and the marble boat made for Empress Dowager Ci Xi. (B)
DAY 4 : Beijing and Great Wall of China.

An unforgettable day travelling to the Mutianyu section of the Great Wall, which criss-crosses forested mountain tops (return cable-car rides are included). One of the Seven Wonders of the World, the Wall stretches approximately 4,000 miles and is a spectacular sight you'll be sure never to forget. (B, L)
DAY 5 : Beijing - Shanghai.

Today, take the high speed bullet train from Beijing to Shanghai. On arrival, transfer to your hotel where you will stay for the next three nights. (B)
DAY 6 : Shanghai.

Shanghai is a fast-paced, cutting-edge metropolis that epitomises modern China. The city's intriguing recent history combined with its striking, ultra-modern architecture present a complete contrast with Beijing. Beginning with a visit to the Yu Yuan Garden, your included city tour will also take in the 'Bund' riverside boulevard and Nanjing Road. (B)
DAY 7 : Shanghai.

A day at leisure to further explore the 'Pearl of the Orient'. Sample Shanghai's luxury shopping on Huaihai Road, the city's fashion district, or Middle Tibet Road for culinary delights. You may also wish to wander through the more traditional Old Town, taking in the pavilions and tea houses of the Chenghuang Miao area, and visit the Former Residence of Dr Sun Yat Sen, the founder of the Republic of China. Alternatively, soak up some of the city's sleek architecture with visits to the Shanghai Oriental Arts Centre and the Oriental Pearl Tower for a bird's eye view of the famous Pudong skyline. (B)
DAY 8 : Shanghai - UK.

Transfer to the airport for your flight to the UK. (B)

I lol'd.. google it

Nice work Stacey, another great post, nice tour.Did a 3 week tour of Asia including 2 cruises and still have loads to see!

am in the only one to notice there is no Hong Kong in the itinerary? title is misleading. for first timers I guess there is security in going as an organised trip but value for money is nothing special.

especially as its a transfer flight in Dubai.....

I think it's cheeky of the tour operator to include the flights in the trip duration. What is advertised as a 9 day trip is actually only 7. Day 1 is flying and day 8 (and presumably 9) is for flying too. There are only six nights of hotel accommodation in China.

I'd love to do this sort of trip but this deal is a little misleading.

Hope it's not tooooo hot in August cos we're going for 17 days. Not for anything like this price tho. The flights were about 750 each and I thought that a bargain.

Further north in China will be ok, but it's the worst time to visit Hong Kong very hot and humid.

Doh! Last 3 days in Mong Kok. Only time we could do it with the kids tho so just gonna have to suck it up.

Done this trip a couple of times with Travelsphere and can't recommend them enough, they still do a 8 days tour from £1299, Xian included and all meals included, think its a shorter trip but certainly worth it-
Included excursions and visits

Shanghai tour (full day)
Xian city walls for welcome ceremony and visit to Shanxi museum
Xian – Terracotta Army (half day)
Beijing tour, including Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square, Temple of Heaven (full day)
Great Wall of China and Summer Palace (full day)

I may have sounded a bit negative above, but to be honest there is never a bad time to visit Hong Kong, my favourite place on the planet. I'de rather be there in the humidity of summer than not at all.

Only 6 nights in china for over a grand. nit worth it, you'll be under a constant time pressure, most of the trip will be spent travelling from one location to the next. also good luck in shanghai in august

Hi Stacey I have just joined this site and see you are the person who knows her stuff on holidays. I have managed to get Easter off work and am looking for a 3/4 night break in the sun. Have you any recommendations please. I think you put some on earlier but can't find them. Thanks in advance .sue x
