Meet your guide, join a Tai Chi class at the Temple of Heaven and learn the turbulent history of Tiananmen Square, one of the largest city plazas in the world. The next day, ride the chairlift up to the Great Wall of China and take in the views with a glass of champagne.

Fly on to Xian and join an archaeologist for a guided tour of the Terracotta Warriors, over 2,000 years old and discovered by chance in 1974, buried under farmland. Meet the man who found them in the flesh and chat to him about this chance discovery. In the evening, you’ll watch a dumpling-making demonstration, where you’ll be shown how to create them and have the chance to make one yourself, and eat it afterwards.

Meet the cute and cuddly residents at the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding and join a resident panda expert to learn more about the conservation and breeding programmes of this national treasure. Look out too for the giant panda’s cousin, the red panda. Smaller and more energetic than the black and white variety, these loveable creatures closely resemble foxes, including the bushy tail. In the evening, perhaps enjoy a performance of Chengdu’s famous face-changing show, where colourfully costumed artists change from mask to mask in the blink of an eye.
