This tour through China, including a Yangtze River cruise, offers you opportunities to see some of China's most historic sites, learn about the local culture, and witness spectacular scenery. You'll stay three nights each in Beijing and Shanghai, two nights in Xi'an, and three nights aboard your Yangtze River cruise ship.

Some of the fascinating historic sites you'll visit on this China tour include Tian'anmen Square; the Forbidden City, once home to Chinese emperors; the Temple of Heaven, built in 1420; Dayan Pagoda, built in 652 AD; and Shibaozhai, a 12-story pagoda built high on the cliffside in the 18th century. No China tour would be complete without visiting the Great Wall, and you'll walk along the wall to see how expansive it is. In Xi'an, marvel at the Terracotta Warriors, roughly 8,000 soldiers, chariots, and horses constructed in 210 BC—all to help China's first emperor into the afterlife!

Relax as you cruise down the Yangtze River, the world's third-largest river, and enjoy spectacular scenery and majestic peaks. Get a glimpse of rural Chinese life and see tiny villages clinging to the hillsides. Also visit the Three Gorges Dam, the world's largest electricity-producing plant. To make sure your vacation is unique, Globus has also arranged special experiences, such as a lunch featuring xiaolongbao, dumplings that are Shanghai's most famous dish, and a rickshaw ride through Beijing's hutongs, the city's ancient alleys.

This is just a sampling of the historic sites, fun cultural experiences, and stunning scenery you'll experience on this awe-inspiring tour through China!
