About the holiday: Arriving in Shanghai -- “a thriving metropolitan hub with an incredible history (Afar) -- you’ll spend two nights exploring the city before flying to Chongqing, home to the famous Chongqing Zoo and the pandas that inhabit it. After a night in Chongqing, you'll embark the 5-star Sinorama Gold 3 for a 3-night cruise on the Yangtze River, including a visit to the Three Gorges, “an 80-mile stretch of gorgeous scenery” (Frommer’s). You’ll disembark in Jingzhou, a 6000 year-old city on the banks of the river, before heading to Wuhan for a flight to Xi’an, home of the Terracotta Warriors museum.
With over 8,000 life-size clay soldiers located in the tomb of China's first emperor, Qin Shi Huang Di, the Terracotta Warriors are described by National Geographic as “one of the greatest archaeological discoveries in the world”. You’ll spend the day and night in Xi’an before embarking a high-speed train to Beijing -- a city "where ancient and modern China meet" (Lonely Planet) -- for a 3-night stay. Your time here includes visits to the Great Wall of China, the Temple of Heaven, Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City.
