Later we return to Shanghai for our overnight train to Xi’an.

Xi'an & Big Wild Goose Pagoda

Day 5: Terracotta Warriors
Xi'an - Beijing. Today we visit the famous Terracotta Warrior archaeological site. Emperor Qin's 2,200 year old terracotta army of life-sized warriors and horses were designed to offer protection to the emperor in the afterlife. The 7,000 clay warriors stand in military formation in excavated pits under the cover of a modern protective hanger and no two faces are alike.

Later we visit the clay workshop, specialising in making replica figurines of the Terracotta Warriors. After dinner we board the overnight express train bound for Beijing.

Day 6: Beijing
We arrive into Beijing bright and early this morning, where we'll enjoy a full day of sightseeing in the city. Our first stop will be Tiananmen Square and the sprawling Forbidden City. Boasting some 9999 rooms, the city within a city was once the sole preserve of the Chinese emperors. This afternoon we take a rickshaw ride through the Hutongs before watching a Chinese Acrobatic performance in the evening.
Overnight: Beijing | Breakfast

Day 7: Beijing - The Great Wall
Make sure you don some comfortable shoes today as we set out to walk a section of the famous Great Wall. Zig zagging some 6000 kilometres across barren hills, deserts and mountains, the now partially ruinous Great Wall stretches from east to west in northern China and was constructed over a period of 2000 years. The wall is steep in sections but the photo opportunities are well worth the effort.

After our walk we have lunch and visit a jade carving factory. In the afternoon we visit the bustling Pearl Market where you'll find anything from jewellery and clothing to gadgets and DVDs.

Shanghai

Shanghai is a bustling coastal metropolis. It's the perfect destination for travellers keen on an exciting experience of China's modern face.

This city is a thrilling hub of international activity that has been developed extensively over the past few decades. As the first Chinese port open for trade with the west, Shanghai has a history of integrating foreign cultures and sensibilities with its own. This element has largely survived the country's tumultuous politics, and visitors will notice that many of the city's buildings, particularly along the Bund, are reminiscent of spectacular colonial-era architecture.

With such a cosmopolitan global atmosphere, travellers will feel welcome and at home among the colourful crowds of Shanghai's celebrated street life.
