Travelling to China and Tibet takes most people out of their comfort zone, which, for a true explorer, is definitely a thrill of lifetime. That said, it can be a little overwhelming to plan. However, it does not have to be a daunting task when you consider Goway’s Splendours of China & Tibet Holiday of a Lifetime. This 18-day, small group, fully-escorted itinerary is designed to let you truly experience the best of China and Tibet, and not have to worry about where your next meal is coming from, or where you’ll sleep that night. In fact, this tour features all deluxe accommodation.
Starting in Beijing, you will enjoy visits to the historic Tiananmen Square and Forbidden City, as well as the breathtaking Great Wall of China. You then travel to Xian where you see the life-size Terracotta Warriors, travelling onwards to Lhasa, Tibet’s capital. Visit a panda sanctuary in Chengdu, cruise the Yangtze River, enjoy a Chinese acrobat show in the modern metropolis of Shanghai, and experience the serenity and beauty of Suzhou, a canal city known as the “Venice of the East”. Our unique dining and shopping experiences just add to the already fulfilling activities of this 18 day itinerary.
I have travelled to many Asian countries with group tours, and have enjoyed them for quite a few reasons. I love the beauty of meeting local people and chatting with them, without the worry of any costs. Our Splendours of China & Tibet tour takes care of these details. By taking away the hassle of tipping, transportation, and even finding drinking water, this tour allows you to immerse yourself and open up to your surroundings, fully enjoying this holiday of a lifetime experience.
Our knowledgeable Tour Directors are not only there to look after you, but to also explain certain local customs such as why the Tibetans drink butter tea, or give you a mini lesson on the history of the Yangtze River. You will enjoy memorable and cultural experiences, such as visiting a family home, or trying a Chinese hotpot meal.
Travelling in a group with like-minded Globetrotters is very rewarding, as it opens up conversation, creates a fun atmosphere, and can form lasting friendships – long after your Holiday of a Lifetime experience ends. In fact, the first thing many travellers do when they get home is to peruse the other Holidays of a Lifetime itineraries Goway offers… and perhaps plan something together with their newly found friends.
