Day 2-4

Beijing

Beijing is a vast and fascinating city – there’s simply so much to explore here! On day two, you will take a bus to visit the Great Wall of China, China’s most recognisable and renowned attractions. You’ll have some free time to walk along the wall, too.

On day three, enjoy an orientation walk before spending the rest of the day exploring at your leisure. Other activity options include exploring Tiananmen Square, the Forbidden City or the Temple of Heaven. In the evening of day four, you will take an overnight train to Shanghai.

Day 5-7

Xi’an

Once you’ve arrived in Shanghai you will have some free time to explore the city after a brief orientation walk. Activities include a visit to the world-famous Shanghai Museum or witnessing the breathtaking Chinese acrobats. On day seven, you’ll take an overnight train to Xi'an.

Day 8-10

Shanghai  

You’ll have the majority of the next two days to explore the active Muslim Quarter and the serenely beautiful Great Mosque, as well as the exotic street food stalls and the majestic Ming Dynasty City Wall. There is the option to visit one of China’s greatest archaeological treasures too —the Terracotta Warriors—or cycle the ancient city walls. You’ll then board a day train to Yichang.
