From the immense metropolises of Beijing and Shanghai to the natural beauty of the Three Gorges, and ancient stones of the Great Wall—a China tour will reveal a country that is as diverse as it is enigmatic. In the modern capital, Beijing, see the iconic sites of the Forbidden City and palace complex, Tiananmen Square and Mao Zedong’s mausoleum, and nearby Temple of Heaven. Host of the 2008 Olympic Games, the capital is also home to a huge stadium complex, known as the Bird’s Nest. Futuristic Shanghai is a global financial center. Walk along the Bund, the city’s colonial waterfront promenade, sample traditional dumplings, or watch remarkable acrobats at the New Shanghai Circus. To the west, the ancient capital Xi’an was an imperial stronghold for centuries and marks the start of the Silk Road. Here you will find archaeological treasures such as the Terra Cotta Army and Mausoleum of the First Qin Emperor, the Giant Wild Goose Pagoda, and Xi’an City Wall.
