Beijing is the capital of the most populous country in the world, the People’s Republic of China, and also its second largest city after Shanghai. It was also the seat of the Ming and Qing dynasty emperors until the formation of a republic in 1911. Beijing is the political, educational and cultural centre of the country and as such it is rich in historical sites and important government and cultural institutions. The city is well known for its flatness and regular construction. There are only three hills to be found in the city limits (in Jingshan Park to the north of the famous Forbidden City). Shanghai was the largest and most prosperous city in the Far East already during the 1930’s, and has remained the most developed city in mainland China. In the past 20 years Shanghai has again become an attractive city for tourists from all over the world. Xi’an is considered one of China’s must see destinations, the home to the Terracotta Warriors. Xi’an is one of the few ancient Chinese cities with its old city wall still intact.Air fare ( For best air fare please contact us) Visa Extra activities, Guide, Camera fee charges & tips Meals except those listed in above inclusions Travel insurance Any other services not mentioned above inclusions.
