Beijing to Shanghai Adventure: Ancient Kingdoms & Karaoke

8 days, Beijing to Shanghai

!

Peak season notice: Golden Week falls between October 1st and 7th, 2020/2021. Please note that Golden Week is a semi-annual 7-day or 8-day national holiday for the people of China. This is a very busy time of the year for domestic tourists, so expect some crowding at major attractions. We recommend booking these dates well in advance as accommodations and transportation availability is extremely limited.

Now's the time to explore China on your terms with this tour that's affordable for young travellers. With its Great Wall, Forbidden City, and army of Terracotta Warriors, China can be a lil' bit intimidating. But this eight-day trip will wipe away any worries — you'll have an expert Chief Experience Officer (CEO) leading the way and you'll hit the highlights in the company of other young travellers. Get a mix of the modern and the historic with plenty of time to enjoy the nightlife. Best of all, you're in control — see the sights you like and skip the ones you don't — so it's an adventure you'll never forget.
