Delve into the unique world of China during this magnificent vacation and visit Beijing, Xi’an, Guilin, and Shanghai.

Discovered accidentally in 1974, the Terracotta Warriors—consisting of roughly 8,000 soldiers, chariots, and horses—were constructed to help China’s first emperor in the afterlife.

Other highlights include a music and dance performance from the Tang Dynasty, which reigned over 1,000 years ago; a rickshaw ride through one of Beijing’s hutongs, the city’s ancient alleys; and a traditional Peking duck dinner.
