The trip begins in Shanghai, China's biggest city. You'll visit the pavilions and streams of the Yuyuan Garden in the Old Quarter -- built during the Ming Dynasty -- and the Jade Buddha Temple, as well as the riverfront boardwalk of Bund. After a 3-night stay here, you'll fly to Yichang to embark on a cruise along the Yangtze River.
You'll sail on the MV Century Sun or one of the Victoria Cruises fleet, all of which feature private balconies in each cabin. Cruise highlights include the Three Gorges -- "few river panoramas inspire as much awe", says Lonely Planet -- and the 100-foot-high Shibaozhai Pagoda, built into the cliff-face.
Once you've disembarked the cruise ship, you'll fly to Xi'an, which marks the eastern end of the Silk Road. The tour includes a trip to a local food market and a chance to see the Terracotta Warriors. The holiday finishes in the capital, Beijing.
Over the final three days, you'll visit the Great Wall of China, the picturesque Summer Palace, Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City, before the trip ends with a banquet of Peking duck on your last evening.
