With a language barrier and large distances to cover, China is notoriously tricky to navigate; this package from RT Holidays takes the hassle out of seeing some of the Far East's most spectacular sights. For £1299 per person, save over 40% on the regular price and get international and domestic flights, rail travel, deluxe accommodation and guided excursions throughout.
The deal includes:
Starting in Hong Kong, the tour visits Victoria Peak for views across the entire city, as well as Stanley Market, where you can hunt down cheap souvenirs. Accommodation is at the Royal Pacific Hotel & Towers or The Kowloon Hotel, both close to Victoria Harbour and the Star Ferry (linking Hong Kong Island and Kowloon).
In Beijing, visits include Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City (an imperial palace that was off-limits to the public for over 500 years), plus a day trip to the Great Wall of China. Accommodation is at the centrally located DoubleTree by Hilton, which has an indoor swimming pool and a rooftop garden.
The final stop is Shanghai, where guests can walk along the Bund -- a waterfront promenade with views of the city's skyline. A visit to the Shanghai Museum is included, and your base is the 5-star Renaissance Shanghai Yangtze Hotel, close to the trendy, tree-lined streets of the French Concession neighbourhood.
Valid for departures on 30 Apr, 7, 14, 21, 28 May; 4, 11, 18 June. Travel on 23 April for £100 extra per person.
Add on a 2-night trip to Xi'an (to see the Terracotta Warriors) for an extra £199 per person, or a 4-night Yangtze River cruise for an extra £499 per person.
