Pandora, the world of 'Avatar', is far but Zhangjiajie is near. Join us on this private, 9-day China tour and get the chance to see some of the major destinations inside the country, including the mountain that inspired the imaginary world of the Hollywood blockbuster.

Start your guided trip from Beijing. Explore the Summer Palace and the Forbidden City. Take a rickshaw through the narrow allies of the city's hutongs and visit the Mutianyu section of the Great Wall. Travel to Zhangjiajie National Forest Park next and enjoy the otherworldly beauty of Avatar Mountain. Savor the modern and traditional cityscapes of Shanghai at last, before heading for the airport to catch your departure flight back home.
5 Star Hotel at Crowne Plaza Beijing Chaoyang U-Town
Meet your guide at the airport's arrival hall. A comfortable private car (non-smoking) & an experienced driver will transfer you to the hotel. If you are not suffering from jet lag, we recommend optional activities like visiting the Beijing Zoo to see the cute giant pandas or going for a kungfu or an acrobatic show. Your tour guide can help arrange the tickets if you are interested in any of the optional activities.
5 Star Hotel at Crowne Plaza Beijing Chaoyang U-Town
Visit Tian’anmen Square and the Forbidden City in the morning and have lunch in a local restaurant after you are done exploring the places. Our tour guide will get the tickets in advance for you so that you won’t waste any time standing in a queue and won’t need to worry about whether or not you can get in.

Hop on a rickshaw and start exploring the beating heart of Beijing: the hutongs (old alleyways). Follow this by spending some quality time with a local family and learning more about their culture. The last destination of the day is the Summer Palace. Explore this masterpiece of Chinese architecture and imagine the time when it was the private garden of emperors and their families.

If you are interested in learning about the facial masks used by actors of Peking Opera, Chinese calligraphy or paper-cutting, we can make a reservation for you. Please note that each activity lasts about 40 minutes and costs between USD5 to USD18 per person.
Meals
  • Breakfast & Lunch
5 Star Hotel at Crowne Plaza Beijing Chaoyang U-Town
Visit the Temple of Heaven, where Chinese emperors used to worship, in the morning. Weather-permitting, you’ll see locals doing tai chi, making calligraphy and playing traditional instruments at the temple. Join them if you want to learn more about Chinese culture.

Head for the the Mutianyu section of the Great Wall (2.5 hours’ drive from downtown Beijing) next. This is a less-crowded section of the wall where a cable car takes you up to a good spot. Enjoy walking along the wall.

Return to the starting point after 2 hours by cable car, foot or by tobogganing down, the last of which is the most popular option among the visitors. If you think two hours are not enough, please inform us in advance so that we can make arrangements for you to explore more of the monument (own expense).

Beijing is a big city with many famous attractions not listed above, like the Bird’s Nest, Jingshan Park, Bell and Drum Tower, Yonghe Temple and the Fragrant Hills Park. If you’d like to explore the city more, please inform us at the time of booking the trip. We can customize the tour to meet your requirements.
