Explore 10 cities in China -- including Beijing, Xi'an, Chengdu and Shanghai -- and cruise the Yangtze River for $2499 per person, including taxes. This 13-night vacation chops $1430 off the cost of piecing the components of this trip together.
See the Great Wall, Xi'an's Terra Cotta Warriors and giant pandas in Chengdu -- home of the famous Sichuan spicy cuisine.
This comprehensive package includes:
Depart March 7 or Nov. 21, 28. For an additional $100 per person, depart March 21, 28 or Nov. 7, 14.
This package features unique highlights, including a visit to the giant panda breeding center in Chengdu; a full-day excursion to Suzhou, dubbed the "Venice of the East"; a Tang Dynasty stage show and dumpling banquet in Xi'an; and an "Old Beijing" tour by rickshaw -- all of which are usually not included in similar tour packages.
