We have a home-cooked lunch at a local family home, we savor the famous Peking Duck, we tour the disappearing “Old Beijing” on a pedicab...

We continue our journey to China's heartland at the ancient Xian to admire the 7,000 life-sized Terra-cotta Warriors and the mausoleum of Emperor Qinshihuangdi. We learn the history of China, sample the royal Dumpling Banquet, and reinvent our dream of China's glorious Tang Dynasty watching a stage show.

We tour the futurist Shanghai and experience the life and sounds of this vibrant metropolis—this is the future of China! We make a side trip to the canal towns of Suzhou and Tongli, to visit their classic gardens, silk and embroidery..At the end of the trip, we take the world's fastest maglev train to the airport for your homebound journey.
