China is more accessible now than ever but remains on the wish list or bucket list for many. Rather than a cheap flight and city break the best way to experience this intriguing country is to tour. Yes, there are the obvious tourist attractions such as the Great Wall but really, would you want to go to China and *not* witness this iconic structure? Add to that the Terracotta Army, a must for anyone interested in culture and history.
Viking River Cruises design their itineraries to fully explore the local culture while travelling in comfort. Intimate and inclusive you get to immerse yourself in the local culture, cuisine, customs and people.
Walk along the Great Wall and through Beijing’s old hutong neighbourhoods. Contrast the stylised sculpted beasts guarding the Sacred Way of the Ming Tombs with the life-like statues of Xian’s Terracotta Army. Cruise between the bamboo groves and limestone pinnacles of the Yangtze’s Goddess Stream. Our 15-day cruise tour is the perfect introduction to China, showcasing its most important cultural centres and the mighty Yangtze.
