Since the travels of Marco Polo over 600 hundred years ago, China has long been known for its tourist attractions. Of course the most famous and popular is the Great Wall of China, and when you go there you will see tours and travelers all along the more restored sections of the wall. Other notable Chinese tourist attractions include the Forbidden City, the Temple of Heaven, and the Summer Palace, all of which are in Beijing, the Terracotta Warriors, which are in Xian, and the waterfront embankment of the Bund, as well as the Pudong district, which has long been seen as the symbol of Shanghai.

However there are so many other Chinese tourist attractions which escape the scrutiny of the international traveler. Fortunately, Great Wall Adventure Club runs tours and services to all sorts of hidden gems. These include ethnic minority villages in the southeast of China, which resemble more of a tropical jungle landscape than the usual yellow earth, cruises down the picturesque Li River and the mighty Yangtze River, horse and camel riding in Inner Mongolia, trekking and exploring tours of the peaks and mountains of Tibet, as well as a host of countless other fun and exciting China tours. With Great Wall Adventure Club, we promise the best and most comprehensive China travel service in order to assure that your tour through China is one that will bring you memories and stories for a lifetime.

ABOUT OUR CHINA TOURING

Beijing and Northern China:

The capital of China, Beijing, is the country’s cultural and political center. Many sections of the Great Wall (as well as the Ming Tombs) are within the vicinity of Beijing, and the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square mark the city center. The Olympics held in Beijing in 2008 marked the arrival of China as a world superpower, and some consider it to mark the arrival of the “Chinese century”. For any first –time visitor to China, a Beijing tour is a must. Many of our China package tours include a stop in Beijing, and you will not regret visiting.

Just about 200km outside the city is Chengde, the summer retreat for China’s Emperors and entourage. Northern China was once called Manchuria, and the ethnic group here (known as Manchus) made up the last ruling dynasty, the Qing. Through our China City Package tours you can visit Chengde. Some of the highlights of Chengde include the Chengde Summer Palace, and the Eight Outer Temples, which was built in close imitation to the Potala Palce in Tibet.

When Emperor Qin Shihuang united China for the first time in 221 BC, he chose Xian as the capital of his empire. When he died, he buried with him the Terracotta Army, and the discovery of this army marks Xian’s greatest and most famed attraction. The capital of Shaanxi province, Xian marks the end of the famed Silk Road, and in Xian you can see classic Chinese meshed with Muslim markets and bazaars. Xian is also the only major city in China to have its ancient city walls still intact, and through one of our China city tours or China package tours you can guard its watchtowers as they did hundreds of years ago.

Also in the northern region of China is the province of Inner Mongolia, and it capital city of Hohot. While a part of China it shares many similar characteristics with its larger and independent brother to the north. Here there are grasslands as far as the eye can see, and in the western areas there are vast stretches of the Gobi desert. On your China package tour to Inner Mongolia you can participate in many traditional Mongolian nomadic activities, like horse back riding, archery, Mongolian wrestling, and you can even stay in an authentic Mongolia yurt hut!


Shanghai and the Fertile East:

Once you get to the east coast around Jiangsu Province, you start to get to the driving force of China's rising prosperity . Of course, the most recognizable of the cities in this region is Shanghai. Shanghai in the center of China's eastern coastline is one of China's cultural centers and has a long history as a trading port and gateway for travelers entering China. China's biggest and most prosperous city oozes an atmosphere of vitality and a dynamic which can rival New York in the United States and Paris of France in terms of modernity. Shanghai's gorgeous night scene is one of the main highlights that will linger in visitors' mind owing to its ornate feature after their Shanghai travel experience. In addition the the China city tours, the China Package tours often include a stop in this dazzling city, and if you sign up for a World Expo tour you will not only get to explore Shanghai and its attractions, but also spend a few days taking in the World Expo, the year’s biggest event!

Just two hours outside of Shanghai is Suzhou, which is located in the southeast of Jiangsu Province. The Grand Canal (Sui Dynasty 581-618), which flows from Beijing to Hangzhou (the capital of Zhejiang Province) has irrigated Suzhou aiding its illustrious culture and turning it into prosperous land. It is of little surprise that Suzhou is called ''Heaven on Earth''. The 8,483km2 city is bustling with historical remnants and culture, thus placing Suzhou third behind Beijing and Xi'an for its historical and cultural significance. Because it so close to Shanghai, a trip to Suzhou is easy and convenient to arrange with our China city tours, and a visit there and its surrounding cities will be a definite highlight of your China travels!

Hangzhou, capital of Zhejiang Province in East China, is one of the more modern and prosperous cities in China, about 100 kilometers (60 miles) southwest of Shanghai. It sits at the southern end of the Grand Canal and is one of China's seven ancient national capitals. Hangzhou's "heavenly" beauty attracts hundreds of thousands of tourists to its exquisite West Lake (Xi Hu) area each year to enjoy the placid lake, beautiful gardens, reflecting pools, lavish temples and lakeside teahouses. If you look at the back of a 1 Chinese RMB bill, you will see a picture of West Lake. As is the case with Suzhou, through Great Wall Adventure Club its easy to arrange a side trip to Hangzhou through one of our China Package travel tours or our World Expo tours.


Tibet and the Western Frontier:

Long overlooked by western travelers, the western areas of China hold some of the most incredible and beautiful delights the country has to offer. In addition to breathtaking natural wonders, the region is also home to many of the country’s ethnic minority groups, which add color and a festive atmosphere to the area. Great Wall Adventure club is dedicated with showing you this hidden paradise, and you can discover it for yourself through our various China Adventure and Package tours to the region. The centerpiece of the western frontier has to be the “rooftop of the world” Tibet, and its capital of Lhasa. The seat of the Dali Lama, Lhasa contains the Potala Palace, the Lama’s official residence, as well as the Jokhang Temple, Sera Monastery, and the markets of Barkhor Street. Through our China Adventure tours you can also further explore the western regions of Tibet, with a visit to Shigatse or a stay at the Mt. Everest base camp.

The town of Guilin is the jumping off point for a cruise on the Li River, and a cruise here is one of the most delightful experiences you can have in the country. The end point of your cruise will be a stop in Yangshuo, A haven for backpackers, Yangshuo is characterized by crystal clear rivers, limestone crags, lush vegetation, traditional Chinese architecture and customs, which have been immortalized in Chinese classical landscape paintings and poetry.

Yunnan province, with its capital at Kunming, is home to 25 ethnic minorities, and is endowed with a remarkable traditional folk culture. And Kunming, the capital city, celebrated as "City of Eternal Spring", is well known for its diverse cultures, breath-taking natural scenery and pleasant climate. In a tropical zone, Kunming is well known for its comfortable weather condition all year round. Through a Great Wall Adventure Club China Adventure tour, you can visit this tropical wonderland and also pay a visit further west to Shangri-la. Many snow-capped mountains surround Shangri-la. Of these, the three well known ones are Meili, Balang, and Haba mountains. The Tibetans consider these mountains sacred.
