Days 1–4: Tokyo and Mount Fuji

An overnight flight takes you to Tokyo, Japan’s capital and the world’s most populous city. Day 3 kicks off with a half-day tour of the most famous landmarks, including the trendy Ginza shopping district and the palace of the imperial family. This leg of the trip comes to a close with a visit to Mount Fuji on Day 4.

  • Senso-ji: One of Tokyo’s oldest temples features a five-story pagoda set amid stalls where you can buy traditional Japanese dishes and handcrafted souvenirs.
  • See views from 7,500 feet on an aerial tram that takes passengers up Mount Fuji.
  • Cruise on Lake Ashi to snap scenic pics of Mount Fuji as reflected on the surface of the water.

Days 5–7: Mount Fuji Area and Kyoto

Next, the tour moves to Japan’s erstwhile capital city, Kyoto. It can feel as though every street corner in town has an elaborate temple, shrine, or garden—the city is rumored to have more than 1,000 Buddhist temples alone. Elsewhere, local marketplaces and restaurants continue the traditions of old Japan. After checking out some of the sacred sites, you’ll have free time before boarding a flight for Beijing.

  • Nijo Castle: A network of moats and ancient stone walls protects the pagoda-style buildings of this UNESCO World Heritage Site where several shoguns once lived.
  • Golden Pavilion: The dazzling exterior is covered in gold leaf that reflects off a placid pond below. Tour the grounds to see sprawling gardens and intimate teahouses. If you spot a statue in the gardens, toss a coin in its direction for good luck.
  • Kiyomizu Temple: No nails were used during the rebuilding of this eighth-century structure in the 1600s—and that’s just the start of the property’s magical qualities. There’s also a waterfall that visitors drink from to gain long life and prosperity. Drinking straws are not included.
  • Optional Nara and Osaka tour: Visit Nara’s Great Eastern Temple and the monumental Osaka Castle during this daylong excursion (Day 6; $80/person).

Days 8–10: Beijing

Beijing’s rich history is ever present. While strolling the streets, you’ll see ornate temples, ancient alleyways lined with shops and teahouses, and open-air markets that have been around for centuries. At the city center stands the Forbidden City, which served as a royal residence to 24 emperors of the Ming and Qing dynasties. And of course, there’s the Great Wall of China, which winds its way across the landscape north of Beijing. Before your tour comes to a close, you’ll see Qianmen Street and sites from the 2008 Olympics.

  • Tiananmen Square: Take a moment at this highly politicized landmark to visit the Monument to the People’s Heroes, a 120-foot obelisk commemorating fallen Chinese soldiers.
  • Optional Forbidden City and Palace Museum tour: The former home of the Qing and Ming dynasties includes an incredible 800 buildings with thousands of rooms decked out in priceless artwork, antique furnishings, and precious jade (Day 8; $28/person).
  • Optional Great Wall and Sacred Way tour: Don’t pass up a chance to step foot on China’s 4,000-mile landmark, parts of which date back more than 2,000 years (Day 9; $49/person).

I can't say enough about this incredible deal. I loved staying in 2 places you get to experience 2 different island resorts which both are amazing for different reasons. If I had to pick one thing to complain about and it's a really small thing is that there were no late night food options available. Having a grill open past 10 would have made the experience excellent. But overall it was magical.
