Four-City Guided Tour of China from Beijing to Shanghai
Called one of the seven wonders of the modern world, The Great Wall of China stretches more than 5,000 miles across northern China—longer than the length of the continental United States—snaking through lush forests and up snow-capped mountains. To the south, Shanghai boasts more than 17 million people, one of the largest populations in the world, as well as two of the tallest structures in the world—the super-tall Shanghai World Financial Center and the futuristic Oriental Pearl Tower. These sights make up just a few parts of Rewards Travel China's 10-day sightseeing tour, which reveals the massive country and its superlative-worthy attractions during visits to Beijing, Hangzhou, Suzhou, and Shanghai.
Some deal options include roundtrip airfare from Los Angles (LAX), San Francisco (SFO), Seattle (SEA), or Vancouver (YVR) airports. Airport taxes and fuel surcharge ($460–$490, depending on the airline) are not included. Chinese visa fees ($140) are not included. Departures may be made from other cities for an additional fee.
Day 1–5: English-speaking guides escort visitors to their hotels upon arrival at the airport. The next day, the tour begins at the Forbidden City, an imperial palace complex that served as home to 24 emperors, spanning more than 500 years of China’s history. The colossal Beijing National Stadium (AKA the "Bird's Nest"), which hosted the 2008 Summer Olympics’ opening ceremony, impresses with its sprawling beams made entirely of twigs and feathers. During the four-day stint in Beijing, tours will also stop at Tiananmen Square and the Temple of Heaven, plus take the 37-mile drive up to Juyongguan to see the Great Wall.
Day 6–10: The tour flies to Shanghai, where travelers take a short bus trip to Suzhou, a beautiful garden city set on water-filled streets, earning it the nickname “Venice of the Orient.” The Suzhou silk factory provides a glimpse into the makings of silk garments. South of Taiho Lake is Hangzhou and the exquisite West Lake, a UNESCO World Heritage site surrounded by hilly peaks, temples, and pagodas. A tour of one of the region’s most famous tea villages delves into traditional Chinese tea culture. Upon returning to Shanghai, groups embarks on a night cruise on the Huangpu River, then stops the next morning at the City of God Temple Bazaar, where dozens of vendors peddle traditional Chinese crafts, street fare, and medicinal wares.
