Embrace the yin and yang of wonders old and new on this soul-enriching expedition.
names alone evoke the wonder and timeless allure of China: the Great
Wall, Forbidden City, Temple of Heaven, Goddess Stream. Wide enough for
cavalry to ride along its crest, stretching from the Yellow Sea to
China’s eastern border, the Great Wall is one of China’s legends. In
Xi’an, 8,000 life-size Terracotta Warriors stand in formation, facing
the enemies of an emperor who died 2,200 years ago. The red and white
walls of the Potala Palace rise massively above Lhasa, and the floor of
the gold-domed Jokhang Temple has been worn smooth by centuries of
pilgrims reverently prostrating themselves before a seventh-century
Buddha. Experience all of this on an adventure that also encompasses
Beijing’s imperial palaces and exquisite gardens, Shanghai’s towering
skyscrapers and the ethereal landscape of the Yangtze’s Three Gorges.
Visit Beijing, Xi'an, Lhasa, Chongqing, Yangtze river cruise, Shibaozhai, Shanghai
