Days 1–4: Beijing
After arriving in Beijing, you’ll meet an English-speaking tour guide and head to the Four Points by Sheraton Beijing, Haidian for some rest. The second day of the trip is set aside for self-guided exploration of the city, and day 3 covers some of the most popular sights during a full-day tour with stops at Tiananmen Square, the Forbidden City, and the Summer Palace, which was built along Kunming Lake in the 18th century. Its imperial grounds are filled with Qing-style pavilions, grand temples, and elaborate gardens.
Your last day in Beijing includes a hike along the Great Wall at Juyongguan Pass, a mountain pass that once played a vital role in China’s military defenses. After exploring the wall, the group will head to the Beijing Zoo, home to thousands of exotic animals, including several giant pandas. The evening winds down with a traditional peking-duck dinner.
Days 5–9: Shanghai
An early-morning flight on day 5 takes you to Shanghai, a glittering megametropolis and a testament to China’s staggering growth. Visitors can enjoy the city’s nonstop bustle on Shanghai Old Street, which blends attractions, entertainment, and cultural exhibits.
While in the area, you’ll visit the 2,500-year-old city of Suzhou, nicknamed the “Venice of the East” for its labyrinthine canals lined with stone-sculpture gardens. Stop at Suzhou’s Lingering Garden, where centuries-old pagodas stand amid tranquil pools bordered by limestone outcroppings. A detour to the city of Hangzhou includes a boat trip on West Lake, a serene waterscape dotted with islands and weeping willows.
After stopping at a traditional teahouse, the group returns to Shanghai for a visit to the famous Bund district. Set along the Huangpu River, the area features futuristic skyscrapers alongside classic examples of baroque and Gothic architecture. The next day, you’re free to explore Shanghai at your leisure. Consider paying a visit to the Old Town Bazaar to stock up on souvenirs at the thousands of booths selling everything from pan-fried dumplings to bamboo handicrafts and traditional Chinese garb.
