Spirit of China & the Yangtze River with Hong Kong

Explore the fascinating city of Hong Kong as you begin a journey through China’s spectacular destinations. Your affordable China vacation delivers a wealth of experiences, including a ride on Hong Kong’s Star Ferry, a cable-car ride up panoramic Victoria Peak, and culinary discoveries, including a delectable dim sum lunch. Climb aboard Hong Kong’s historic 1920s-style double-decker tram for an authentic look at the city’s living history.

Following your exciting tour of Hong Kong, you’ll spend 13 spellbinding days on your affordable tour of China, including a picturesque Yangtze River cruise. Your vacation in China begins in the exciting city of Shanghai on the Yangtze River delta. You’ll marvel at the exquisite Yu Yuan Gardens and the Shanghai Museum—with works of art dating 6,000 years old. In Wuhan, explore beautiful East Lake—China’s second largest freshwater urban lake. Discover 200,000 cultural relics in the Hubei Provincial Museum, including ancient pottery, jades, artwork and coins. Next, board the bullet train to Yichang to embark on your 4-night cruise on the legendary Yangtze River.

Before passing through the dramatic vistas of the Xiling Gorge, you’ll visit the monumental Three Gorges Dam. Disembark briefly from your ship to glide on the mysterious emerald waters of Goddess Stream on a boat excursion, then continue on the Yangtze through its dramatic gorges lined with forested mountain views. You’ll tour Shibaozhai with its 400-year-old, 12-story, red wooden pagoda perched high on the cliff side. Disembark from your Yangtze River cruise for more adventures, beginning with a visit to see the pandas at Chongqing Zoo. You’ll fly to Xi’an, one of China’s great ancient capitals, to see the emperor’s vault surrounded by the stunning find of its thousands of Terracotta Warriors, chariots, and horses guarding the tomb. In Beijing, take a guided tour of Tian’anmen Square past Mao’s Mausoleum. Visit the Forbidden City—the largest collection of China’s ancient buildings and home to the historic Ming and Qing dynasties. Your budget-minded tour of China includes once-in-a-lifetime experiences, including a visit to the iconic Great Wall of China. You’ll witness sweeping vistas from the wall that once stretched 4,000 miles across China’s barren northern terrain.

Your value-minded tour of China and the Yangtze River is a journey into a spirit of history, beauty, culture, and natural wonders like no other.
