Foreign Travel Advice

The north of China has long been the country's seat of power, and this tour takes in many of the major historical sites between Xi'an and the capital, from the life-size Terracotta Army to Beijing's Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City, and of course the Great Wall of China, one of the New Seven Wonders of the World, where we'll walk along the Jinshanling section. We'll also explore the ancient walled city of Pingyao, the Yungang Grottoes and Hanging Monastery near Datong, the city of Chengde, and the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Wutai Shan, one of China's four Sacred Buddhist mountains.

There will be a group meeting today at 10:00am - please look out for a note from your tour leader at the hotel reception with more information about this important meeting.

This afternoon we head out of Xi'an on the truck to the site of the world-famous Terracotta Warriors, where we have an included visit and a guided tour.
