2014 Prices From $4,195 plus on-tour air for 11 Days - Tauck World Discovery

A modern industrial giant with roots deep in antiquity, China is today a land of dazzling diversity and contrasts. Tauck’s 11-day China trip shows you the best of the old and new with visits to four exciting capital cities: Beijing, X’ian, Chengdu and Shanghai. Experience the architectural majesty of the Forbidden City, an imperial palace complex in the heart of modern Beijing... walk the astonishing Great Wall at Mutianyu, with its breathtaking mountain landscapes... and discover an underground army of life-size clay warriors uncovered from an emperor’s tomb.  Try your hand at paper making, an art invented in China... explore the Qing Dynasty architecture of Chengdu, once a stop on the ancient Silk Road... learn about the traditional system of Feng Shui... cuddle a baby panda at the Chengdu Panda Breeding Center... immerse in the avant-garde architectural panache of Shanghai, a 21st-century financial hub, where you can explore the Old French Concession of narrow alleys, galleries, cafés and antique shops, and visit the vanishing world of traditional shikumen homes in the Xintiandi district. Our China trip shows you a world of endless fascination and cultural complexity that includes a world of scintillating cuisines and stays at top-rated hotels – truly the best of East meets West.

The Tauck Difference

I wanted to cuddle that baby panda forever and ever... he snuggled in so close to my chest and rested his head right next to mine. What a wonderful memory to share with my children – so few people will ever experience this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. What a truly special moment!

– Dawne Andrews, Tour Architect
