China and the Far East are, to most westerners, exotic destinations which can seem as daunting as they are exciting. A completely different culture exists over there, which, when coupled with the usual language barrier, can make travel to China seem more arduous than fun. Newmarket Holidays specialise in guided trips to exotic locations – which allows travellers the opportunity to explore foreign countries and cultures with a multi-lingual guide on hand to ease them through the experience. Best of China is an eleven-day trip which takes in some of the more colourful and enticing aspects of the world’s second largest country by landmass, plus the culture of the largest population on the planet.
Travellers are able to select from a number of pre-determined travel dates and airports across the UK to begin their eleven-day trip to China. Prices vary according to seasons and departure locations, but each tour represents excellent value for money. A Newmarket Holidays Best of China tour begins with an overnight flight into Shanghai – the largest city proper by population in the world – from the chosen regional airport. Travellers will then meet their guide and be transferred to their first overnight accommodation location.
Travellers will enjoy two activity-packed days in Shanghai, taking in sights as diverse as the Yuyan Classical Garden and the bustling bazaars, the soaring Pearl TV Tower and the ancient colonial buildings which surround it. On day three, travellers will transfer by air to Beijing, the nation’s capital. Here sights such as the infamous Tiananmen Square, resting place of Chairman Mao, and the complex can be seen. A guided tour will take Newmarket Holidays customers inside the palace grounds to view the ceremonial buildings, shrines and tranquil gardens, once enjoyed by ancient Emperors and their numerous wives and concubines. The Great Wall of China and the Beijing Zoo are also on the itinerary.
Next stop is Xi’an, home to the legendary Terracotta Army and many Tang Dynasty monuments. This is followed by an excursion to the Li River for a cruise through the paddy fields and mountain ranges, culminating in a spectacular light show on the last evening in the area. Travellers are taken back to Shanghai for a final evening’s entertainment before transferring back to the airport for the flight home.
