ITINERARY

Day 1: Arrive in Beijing

Ni Hao China! Pack your bags for an unforgettable adventure as your board your international flight to Beijing. Upon arrival, you’ll be met by a tour representative and transferred to the hotel for check-in.

Depending on airline availability, some travellers may depart Australia prior to Day 1.

Day 2: Beijing – The Great Wall of China – Gubei Water Town (B, L, D)

See the exterior of the 2008 Olympic Games’ Bird Nest and Water Cube, before watching artisans craft traditional Chinese Jade at one of China’s biggest factories.

Then, be captivated by The Great Wall at the Juyongguan Pass, majestically perched over the peaks and hills of Beijing. One of the Seven Wonders of the World, you will have the opportunity to hike a portion of this marvel.

Day 3: Gubei Water Town (B)

Spend the day exploring Gubei Water Town, surrounded by stunning mountains, water and ancient architecture, rife with history from the Qing Dynasty. Most buildings are reconstructed in a traditional courtyard style. You could perhaps stroll along the river-lined streets or sample local delicacies like chestnut cake and sweet apple dessert.

Day 4: Gubei Water Town – Beijing (B)

Enjoy some leisure time this morning or go on an optional tour to Little Potala Palace. Head back to Beijing this afternoon with a visit to Tiananmen Square – the largest square in the world and the historical and spiritual heart of China.
