Why you'll love this trip

  • Explore the highlights of ancient China, from the Shaolin Monastery and Longmen Grottoes to the Terracotta Army of Xi’an and finally the Great Wall.

  • Tour Shanghai’s imminently photogenic Bund, where historic buildings display a variety of architectural styles along a waterfront promenade.

  • Enjoy a peaceful night in a traditional courtyard guesthouse near the Great Wall and visit a section of the Wall.

  • Admire and try your hands at the intricate art of paper cutting from a master from a family that has passed down the tradition for generations.

Is this trip right for you?

  • We suggest packing relatively lightly for this trip, as you’ll need to be able to comfortably carry your own luggage going through busy train stations.

  • The trip covers a fair amount of ground to enable you to see some of China's biggest cities and main highlights, so be prepared for some long travel days.

  • Peregrine Adventures pack a lot in, in a short amount of time, so if you have some time to spare we highly recommend extra time in Shanghai and Beijing.
