We arrive in Beijing. The most important thing in the capital of the Celestial Empire awaits us: Tiananmen Square and the FORBIDDEN CITY OF GUGUNG (Winter Imperial Palace, 1406-1420).

For lunch — a Peking duck, and after dinner — a tea ceremony.


Today, the Yiheyuan Summer Garden, Olympic facilities (the «Bird's Nest» Stadium, the «Water Cube» national swimming complex — without visiting) await us. But the main object of the day is the Great Wall of China. After that, we will go to one of the former capitals of China — Luoyang. From Luoyang we go to Zhengzhou for the night.


Today we will visit the «Lunmen» Grottoes and the truly stunning Shaolin Monastery, where we will also see the fascinating spectacle of the Shaolin Wushu show. In the evening we move to Xi'an.


On this day we will visit the City wall with a wonderful view. And then we go to one of the main attractions of China and the whole world — the Terracotta army. And in the evening, Night Xi'an awaits us — the city of lights and music.


We are waiting for а Big Wild Goose Pagoda, which is considered the hallmark of Xi'an. We will have lunch at a local restaurant and take the train to the city of Tianshui.


Today we move on and visit a truly fascinating place — the Maijishan Buddhist complex. Then in the afternoon we go to the cultural city of China — Chanye.


Today we will see the monastery of The Horse Hooves monastery Mathisi, which is located at an altitude of 2500 meters. Next — the incredible beauty of the geological park Zhangye Danxia.


Departure to the city Chengdu. Rich natural resources, mild climate and luxurious set of historical places of interest gives Chengdu the right to be called «heavenly abode».


We had the opportunity to visit Giant Buddha — this is the most gigantic stone Buddha in the world, reaching a height of 71 m. In the evening we will visit the New Century Global Center shopping mall.


At lunchtime we will go to the Panda Breeding Research Institute. Next, a flight to the city, which is 2100 years old — Guilin.


Today we have a Cruise on the purest river Lijiang, which impresses with its purity, transparency and, of course, landscapes, to the pier of the county town of Yangshuo, which is surrounded by 18 mountain peaks and looks like the core of a lotus flower from above. For the beauty of the landscape, in harmony with the peasant fields, Yangshuo has the fame of «Guilin's first landscape place». Let's go to the landscape city Yangshuo.


In the morning we will see the Elephant Trunk Mountain. We go further, where Zhangjiajie National Park awaits us. Soon we will enjoy the mountains of Avatar.


The day is dedicated to the Grand Canyon in Zhangjiajie where we will see the world's longest glass bridge in Guangdong and the largest cave in Asia — «Yellow Dragon».


Elevator ride to the top One Hundred Dragons peakTianzishan Mountains. And of course, a walk in the cleanest canyon in the world — Golden whip.


Today on our schedule  we have the national forest park «TIANMENSHAN», where we will see a stunning mountain called heaven gate. In the evening we will go to Shanghai.
