Arrive in Beijing and enjoy a full day excursion to the Great Wall, the longest man-made structure on Earth, a visit to the Ming Tombs, and a brief stop at the Olympic village.

Embark on your cruise and view spectacular scenery along the Yangtze River including the Three Gorges and the fabled Twelve Peaks. While aboard, participate in demonstrations such as Chinese kite flying and dumpling making, or join educational seminars on the Chinese language, Chinese medicine and modern China.
Disembark the cruise and fly to Shanghai where you’ll visit the classical Yuyuan Garden, built during the Ming Dynasty, and a local silk carpet factory. An optional acrobatic show with dinner package gives you a chance to enjoy a world-class performance before heading back home!
