Detailed Description

China is an exotic country that is perfect for seniors who are looking for adventure.

You will have the option of climbing the peak or riding the tram to the top, where you will be rewarded with a panoramic view of the city. Tsim Sha Tsui is a lovely promenade that features ancient buildings on one side and the lovely Victoria Harbor on the other. When you reach the wharf, you will board a traditional junk boat and sail into the open water for a lovely light show.

The World Financial Tower in Shanghai is the second tallest building in the world, and you will rise to the top for incredible views of the city on a clear day. The traditional villages of Yangshuo will provide you and your guide with a closer look at authentic Chinese culture. You will then sail down the Li River and view the karst landscapes along the water.

You will then transfer to Chengdu, where you will visit a panda research center to visit with these rare animals. You will then transfer to Xi’an, where you will be able to witness the Terracotta Warriors. Each soldier was created with their own individual expression, gesture, and uniform.
