China Escorted Tours 2019/2020
Teahouses and terracotta soldiers
The Chinese city of Chang’an marked one end of the Silk Road.
This bustling ancient city was the country’s capital during the Han dynasty, and was a political and cultural centrepoint. Merchants and caravans would set off for the West, laden with luxuries like silks, spices, porcelain and teas.
Today, we know Chang’an as Xi’an – and it’s one of China’s most popular cities. We stop by for two nights on all of our tours of China. It gives us the chance to see the sights (like the soaring Big Wild Goose Pagoda and lantern-lit City Walls), sip tea in traditional teahouses and sample a little local cuisine (the paper-thin, melt-in-the-mouth dumplings are delicious). Of course, we also include a visit to the area’s most famous sight: the Terracotta Warriors, an immense army of sculptures and statues created to guard an ancient emperor.
2019 will be the Year of the Pig, but why not also make it the year you experience the magic of China for yourself (or book for 2020 – dates are already on sale). From the customs to the culture to the cuisine, China is unlike anywhere else – and that’s what we love about it.
Immerse yourself in rich history, amazing scenery and fascinating culture, with every province bringing a new range of sights and experiences.Our tours take you to the country’s highlights (and reveal a few hidden gems along the way). Your expert local tour manager will be on hand throughout, so there’s no worry about language barriers or figuring out how to get around. All you need to do is sit back and take it all in…
