    DAY 3 BEIJING. GREAT WALL EXCURSION
    The GREAT WALL OF CHINA once stretched 4,000 miles across China’s barren northern terrain from the Bohai Sea to the Gobi Desert. Head north to a village where the Great Wall is well preserved and walk along the wall to enjoy sweeping vistas of this mammoth fortress. Return to Beijing for some time at your leisure. Tonight, you may choose to attend a performance of the Peking Opera, a traditional form of Chinese theater or attend the Legend of Kung Fu Show, with a fusion of kung fu, dance, and acrobatics. (Breakfast, Lunch)
    DAY 4 BEIJING–XI’AN
    This morning, visit the TEMPLE OF HEAVEN and enjoy a rickshaw ride through one of Beijing’s Globus Local Favorite HUTONGS, the city’s ancient alleys. Experience life in this historic neighborhood as you are invited into the courtyard of a family’s home to learn more about their life. A short flight brings you to Xi’an. (Breakfast) 
    DAY 5 XI’AN
    One of the largest and wealthiest cities in the world when China dominated the silk trade, Xi’an today is an archaeological treasure trove. Sightseeing begins with the enormous tomb of China’s first emperor, Qin Shi Huangdi, accidentally discovered by local farmers in 1974. Marvel at the legion of TERRACOTTA WARRIORS that has been guarding the burial site for 2,000 years. During lunch, enjoy a NOODLE-MAKING DEMONSTRATION by a master chef and learn how Chinese noodles are made by hand. Next, visit the DAYAN PAGODA, built in 652 AD. This evening, attend the “Tang Dynasty” DINNER SHOW, featuring a colorful assemblage of classical performances. 
    (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)
    DAY 6 XI’AN–GUILIN
    Today, fly to Guilin, one of China’s most beautiful areas. Tonight, you may choose to join our optional trip to see trained cormorants dive for fish, the traditional Lijiang fishing method. (Breakfast)
    DAY 7 GUILIN
    Savor unique vistas during a leisurely CRUISE on the Li River, where Limestone Mountains rise sharply from the surrounding plain. The scene conveys a sense of mystery that for centuries artists have tried to capture.

    DAY 9 SHANGHAI
    This morning, your sightseeing starts at the YU YUAN GARDENS, dating back to the Ming Dynasty. Then, learn about the silk-making process at a SILK FACTORY. For lunch, stop at a local restaurant for lunch featuring Globus Local Favorite XIAOLONGBAO, Shanghai’s most famous dish. These tasty soup dumplings are handmade with at least 18 intricate folds to close the top. The broth is the star so, to avoid wasting a single drop, gently pick up the dumpling, dip in sauce, and transfer to a Chinese soup spoon. Next, make a small hole to release the steam and allow the broth to cool. After it cools, sip up the broth and then swallow the dumpling. The remainder of the day is at your leisure. You may consider joining an optional tour to see a spectacular acrobatic show. 
    (Breakfast, Lunch)

Today, the qualities that made the area so popular endure—from quaint, tree-lined streets and exquisite architecture to charming shops and fashionable restaurants and bars. Along the way, see the famous Art Deco Cathay Theatre, explore the narrow lanes of Xintiandi, and visit Fuxing Park, where locals play chess, dance, practice tai chi, and more. The afternoon is at your leisure. This evening, your Tour Director hosts a special farewell dinner.
