Days 1–4: Beijing

Beijing is not only as China’s capital, but also one of its oldest and largest cities, a bustling metropolis with roots to the 11th century BC. After an overnight flight to Beijing lands on Day 2, you’ll spend Day 3 touring this ancient city.

Take in the sights at iconic Tiananmen Square, one of the world’s largest city squares. This landmark has been the site of several significant imperial ceremonies and social uprisings. See the Monument of the People’s Heroes, which pays homage to fallen Chinese shoulders with its imposing granite and marble figure.

Spend the final day in Beijing is set-aside for you to explore the city at leisure.

Optional tours: Roam the Forbidden City, which for centuries was strictly off limits to non-royalty, or spend Day 4 heading up to the Great Wall of China. (Optional tours have extra fees)

Days 5–6: Xian

A brief flight takes you to the ancient city of Xian, where you can get a feel for China’s rich history. The 3,000-year old city is rife with ancient relics and monuments, as well as the remnants of its imposing city wall. The Drum and Bell Towers rise in the heart of Xian; these colorful structures have massive bronze bells and drums that would once heralded the changing of the guard. At night, lights illuminate the buildings, creating a dazzling photo opportunity.

Optional tours: Come face-to-face with the Terra Cotta Army, which protect the mausoleum of Qin Shi Huang, China’s first emperor. (extra fees)

Days 7–10: Suzhou, Shanghai

En route to Shanghai, you’ll spend two days exploring Suzhou, called the “Venice of the East” for its elaborate gardens and meandering canals. The tour will stop at the Panmen Gate scenic area, visiting the Auspicious Luster Pagoda, the Water-and-Land City Gate, and the Wumen Bridge. The tour will then visit the Master of the Nets Garden, an exquisitely designed garden and pond surrounded by classical architecture.

You’ll end your visit to China with a stop in Shanghai, which presents a stark contrast to Suzhou’s placid waterways. Shanghai is the world’s largest city and thrives as China’s financial hub. Along the Huangpu River and especially in the Bund financial district, you’ll see contemporary skyscrapers and examples of Gothic Classical and Romanesque architecture.
