Start your China holiday package in Beijing to explore the largest palace in the world – the Forbidden City. Dating back to the Ming and Qing dynasties, it has 9,999 rooms filled with remnants of civilisation gone by. Continue the historical immersion at the Great Mosque of Xi’an, and visit the legions of Terracotta Warriors while you’re there. A China holiday package wouldn’t be right without a trip to the Great Wall of China – ride the cable car to the Mutianyu section for jaw-dropping views of the wall and surrounding landscapes.
There’s a reason Chinese food has spread worldwide – and where else to try it than at the source? Visit Shanghai’s Silk Road for traditional noodles and Peking duck, or spice it up with a sample of Sichuan’s hot dishes. While you’re in Sichuan, don’t miss the chance to peek at a giant panda, so a visit to Chengdu’s giant panda sanctuary.
The cost of a China holiday package depends on what level of luxury you opt for and which cities you visit. Shanghai and Beijing are generally moderately priced, while Xian and Chengdu are a little more affordable. Travelling between cities by train can cost between 50-100USD and 80-300USD by air. Public transport in each city is very affordable, while tickets to major attractions are usually less than 20USD per person.
