Holiday Highlights

  • This is one of the best trips in our range for experiencing beyond what the average tourist sees of China. Go local every step of the way with an experienced local tour leader, travelling on public transport, staying in guesthouses and hostels and of course, eating the most authentic local food everywhere you go. Here's some of what you can expect: https://www.intrepidtravel.com/adventures/a-guide-to-traditional-chinese-street-food/
  • Rather than just going on a day trip, stay overnight near the Great Wall in a family run guesthouse, allowing you to see this iconic structure without the crowds.
  • The perfect mix of cityscapes and beautiful natural scenery showcases the contrasts of China. From starting with a bang in Beijing, to hiking the heights of Huangshan, the big city lights of Shanghai, to the idyllic rural villages of Huizhou.
  • There are plenty of chances to get active on this trip as you explore with city walking tours, climb the many steps of Yellow Mountain, trek on the Jinshanling Great Wall and cycle countryside lanes in Hongcun.
  • Two overnight trains means you'll maximise your time in each destination, get to know your fellow travellers, as well as get a great sense of the vastness and landscapes of the country.
  • Greet the mountain mists at holy Huangshan
  • Have your own Crouching Tiger moment in Hongcun
