Three-City Tour from Beijing to Shanghai Samples Best of China

How many manmade buildings can you think of that have survived for more than 2,500 years? The Great Wall of China is impressive for many reasons, but especially for its longevity—some sections date as far back as the seventh century BC. The wall was built so long ago that a major reconstruction was needed by the time the Ming dynasty came to power in 1368 AD. Today, much of the wall stands as always has. It runs east to west across northern China’s green mountains and running rivers for 5,500 miles. With Nexus Holidays Toronto’s 10-day China Golden Route tour with included roundtrip airfare, you’ll see the monumental Great Wall in between stops in Beijing, Xi’an, and Shanghai.

Days 1–4: After departing from a gateway city on the West Coast, you’ll touch down in Beijing. Say “nǐ hǎo” to your English-speaking tour guide before transferring to the regal Jade Palace Hotel in Zhongguancun, known as the “Silicon Valley of China.” The next three days are jam-packed with sightseeing excursions: you’ll visit Tiananmen Square, the Forbidden City, and the Temple of Heaven, another Ming Dynasty relic. The Great Wall is the highlight of day 4, but your group will also spend some time at the Bird’s Nest stadium and Water Cube from the 2008 Summer Olympics.

Days 5–7: You’ll board an overnight soft-sleeper train headed southwest to Xi’an, one of the Four Great Ancient Capitals of China. Xi’an is home to the Mausoleum of the First Qin Emperor, best known for its legion of terracotta warrior statues that surround and guard Qin’s centuries-old tomb. Afterwards, feast on an imperial dumpling banquet while watching a Tang Dynasty-inspired music and dance show. The next day, the tour visits the detailed murals, ceramics, and other ancient Chinese artifacts at the Shaanxi History Museum, before heading to the nearby Big Wild Goose Pagoda, a seven-story Buddhist pagoda built in 652. While in Xi’an enjoy accommodations at Titan Times Hotel.

Days 8–10: The last days of the trip are spent in metropolitan Shanghai. Your tour of Shanghai begins with a trip to the Bund, a waterfront district lined with shops and buildings influenced by former European occupiers. The Bund’s architecture ranges from Romanesque to Gothic to Beaux-Arts. Later, explore the Ming Dynasty-era pavilions and serene ponds at the Yu Garden, built around 1559 and 1577, and peruse more than 120,000 curated treasures on display at the Shanghai Museum. While in Shanghai you will stay at MinYa Hotel. Following breakfast on day 10, you’ll depart Shanghai for your return flight home.
