Shanghai to Hong Kong tour, discover China
From
£2,138
excluding flights
Memorable parts? We had many memorable experiences on our trip to China. Every day produced a new experience, each different and often additional things that we had not anticipated. Clearly The Great Wall, Terracotta Warriors, Panda's, Forbidden Palace were all amazing, but for me the peace and quiet of drifting down the river on a bamboo raft at Guilon was just perfect after the frantic travelling around China. Tips? Make sure that you have a suitcase with wheels,there is a lot... (more)Nigel Davies

Memorable parts? The minority villages as not many westerners get to see this part of China. They welcome you into their houses and although they have very little they gave us some oranges.

Then watching the baby slipping off the platform and mum rolling over to join her baby on the ground. So special. Tips? Be prepared to carry your luggage, particularly at the train stations.
