The Hong Kong to Shanghai on a Shoestring tour starts in Hong Kong and ends in Shanghai. The Hong Kong to Shanghai on a Shoestring is a safari tour that takes 19 days taking you from Hong Kong to Shanghai and through other destinations in Asia.

China is a great example of a country with equally modern and historic relevance, and with this 19-day tour you’ll learn why. By crossing the country via train you’ll not only be able to visit a bunch of different cities (and Hong Kong!) in just under three weeks, but you’ll also get to see the diverse landscapes that make up the world’s most populous country. Stand face-to-face with the Terracotta Warriors, cycle the ancient city walls, practice Tai Chi with locals, go shopping in Shanghai, or sing your heart out in a karaoke session. If you’re feeling adventurous, do it all.

“Physically not easy at times (quite a bit of hiking and walking around with your backpack in the heat, and comfort levels are quite low both in overnight trains and hotels) but definitely rewarding. Would definitely recommend it to others.”
