Shanghai – The City
Known as the ‘Pearl of the Orient’, Shanghai is truly an international metropolis in every sense of the word. Shanghai is the economic and cultural center of China. It is the most vibrant and progressive city in the country with incredible melting pot of cultures from the East and the West. On one side of the mighty Yangtze River flowing through Shanghai is the Pu Dong district, rural farm land just 20 years ago; it is now the financial and commercial hub with skyscrapers stretching ever higher. Along the western bank of the river, the iconic Bund is a reminder of Shanghai’s colonial past featuring grand European architecture.

Hangzhou – The City
Hangzhou is the capital of Zhejiang province and is located not far south of Shanghai. The city is regarded as one of the most beautiful cities in China with numerous historic relics and natural beauty. Most famous for its picturesque West Lake, elected as a National Key Scenic location due to its historical and cultural significance and many temples, pagodas, ponds and plants.

Xi’an – The City
Xi’an is the second most visited city in China, mainly due to its status as home of the Terracotta Warriors and it being the former capital of China for 13 dynasties. Together with Athens, Rome and Cairo, Xian is one of the most famous of the ancient cities; rich in a history that spans thousands of years. Xi’an, meaning ‘West Peace’ is the capital of Shaanxi province and is conveniently located in the center of China. The Terracotta Army is located in the satellite tombs to the mausoleum of Emperor Qin Shihuang.
