China Highlights

Get a taste of China on this short but culture-filled adventure. Travel from modern Shanghai to old Beijing and explore busy Xi'an, taking in iconic attractions such as the Great Wall of China and Terracotta Warriors along the way. Of course, there is time to delve beneath the surface, discovering gourmet delights and learning about Chinese life and traditions.


From 1st January 2019 there has been a change to the start day of our departures, with the most regular departure day becoming Saturday. On Day 2 we will enjoy a walking tour of Shanghai in the morning before travelling to Xitang where we will stay for the night. The Shanghai Acrobat Show will no longer be included in 2019.

Holiday Highlights

  • This is our most popular trip in China and one of the top trips from the entire Intrepid range. The trip may be quick, but it is packed full of experiences that will give you great insight into China in a short time.
  • In addition to the main highlights in the big cities of Beijing, Xi'an and Shanghai, you'll get a glimpse of small town life in Xitang and a taste of the countryside when we stay near the Great Wall. 
  • Our small group size allows us to explore destinations on foot together, eat in authentic local restaurants, travel by subway and train, as well as escape the tourist traps - all under the expert guidance of an experienced local leader who is passionate to share their country and culture.
  • Spend the night in a charming family-run guesthouse near the Great Wall and see this iconic structure without the masses.
  • Stop by Xitang, a water town just outside of Shanghai, and imagine a way of life lost long ago while exploring the narrow alleyways and canals.
  • Like everything it does, China’s ancient history is on an epic scale. No matter how many guide books you have read, nothing truly prepares you for the grandeur and immensity of sights like the Great Wall, Tianmen Square and the Terracotta Army (or thousands of local tourists at the Forbidden City!).
