Travel to Xi’an, the starting point of the Silk Road, to see the Terracotta Warriors and see its city walls, the most complete ancient fortification in China. Cruise down the Yangtze River to see the controversial Three Gorges Dam (both old and new sections).

In addition to the important monuments that hark back to China's rich past, this trip also involves a Yangtze River cruise as well as a walking tour of Shanghai, a modern-day metropolis that stands in sharp contrast to the other destinations. Start your journey from the Chinese capital city of Beijing and end it in the vibrant Hong Kong.
