A once-in-a-lifetime tour of China, with excursions in Beijing, Xi'an and Chengdu, including the Great Wall, the Terracotta Army and an unforgettable panda visit

Uncover the charms of China with this once-in-a-lifetime trip to not just one, but three epic destinations. You'll start in China's capital city, taking in the world-famous historic sites. From your base – Novotel Beijing Peace Hotel – you'll visit Tiananmen Square (the largest square in the world!) and the Forbidden City, before taking in the Summer Palace. A Beijing visit wouldn't be complete with a trip to the Great Wall of China – one of the greatest wonders of the world, which you'll witness in all its glory.

Next, you'll grab a bullet train to Xi'an, where you'll come face-to-face with the world-renowned Terracotta Army, warriors of stone guarding the mausoleum of the first emperor of China, Qin Shi Huang. You'll also have the opportunity to explore Xi'an’s City Walls, before relaxing at Grand Mercure on Renmin Square Xi'an – your digs for the two-night stay in Xi'an.

To round things up, from Shanghai you'll head to the city of Chengdu for a final three nights at a Tibetan-themed bolthole. While here, you'll visit a panda conservation centre and learn how these cute creatures are protected. You'll also discover the Leshan Giant Buddha and take a boat ride to soak up panoramic views of the impressive ochre-hued statue.
