Detailed Description

The exotic and alluring country of China holds many beautiful and romantic places for you to explore with your loved one. When your plane descends into Shanghai Pudong Airport, your private transfer will pick you up and bring you to your luxury accommodation. After you have settled in, your experienced guide will escort you to the Former French Concession neighborhood to experience a harmonious blending of eastern and western cultures. You will indulge your senses when you and your partner dine at a Michelin starred restaurant, cementing your love for one another. The Huangpu River splits Shanghai into the historic and modern parts and you will sail down it where you will be nestled in each other’s arms.

The ancient water town of Zhujiajiao has been described as the ‘Venice of the Orient’ and you will feel decadent as you sail down the canals in a gondola. The hot springs in Shanghai are the best place for you and your loved one to take a moment to just relax and enjoy each other’s company. Submerge yourself for a relaxing moment before you indulge in a steaming hot pot to satiate your appetite. Baby pandas in Chengdu are some of the cuddliest bears there are and you will have the chance to nourish them at the research center. Your guide will lead you to a master calligrapher where you will learn how to become proficient at this ancient art. The oldest fortification in China is the Ancient City Wall of Xi’an where you will have the chance to cycle around to gain a new perspective of the city. Huashan is a mountain you and your partner can work together to scale and enjoy the panoramic views at the top.

There are plenty of UNESCO heritage sites in Beijing and you will visit the most famous ones, the Forbidden City and the Summer Palace, and traverse the largest imperial homes. Peking duck is one of the most famous dishes in Beijing cuisine and you will tantalize your senses when you bite into this delectable dish. As you and your loved one head to the Great Wall, you will experience one of the most gorgeous sunsets by the Jinshanling part of the fortification. You will declare your undying love for one another at Tianya Haijiao and know your affection for each other will stand against the test of time. As your private transfer brings you to Phoenix International Airport, you will lean against your partner’s shoulder and relish all the beautiful memories you have built together.
