Classic China & Yangtze River Cruise

shares

Journey from Shanghai's glass and steel, via classical 'silk city' Suzhou, to centuries-old Beijing, before cruising through a land as rich in myth and legend as in startling, spectacular scenery, as the Yangtze, arrested by the engineering marvel of the Three Gorges Dam, plies its ageless course. Laid-back Chengdu, home to Giant Pandas, and ancient Xi'an with its eye-popping Terracotta Army, provide yet more unforgettable sights, before the holiday draws to a close back in Shanghai.
