Beijing

Land in Beijing and get ready to spend two full days exploring the lively Chinese capital. There’s heaps to see! Don’t miss historical highlights such as the Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square and the Temple of Heaven with its show-stealing Hall of Prayer for Good Harvests. You’ll also be heading out of the city on a guided full-day tour of the Great Wall at the well-preserved Mutianyu section, with a picnic lunch included. Afterwards, why not try taking the toboggan back down?!

Next, you’ll fly to Xi’an, home to one of the world’s most incredible ancient wonders – the Terracotta Army – where an estimated 8,000 uniquely crafted warriors have been guarding a tomb for more than two millennia. Be prepared for an epic day of exploring; alongside the Terracotta Army you’ll also get to visit the Banpo Museum – China’s first prehistoric excavation site displaying a 6,000-year-old Neolithic village – and see the Huaqing Hot Springs.
