China Experience with Mongolia

On this tour through China, you’ll explore some of China’s most famous sites and learn about its ancient and current culture, with a prelude to your trip beginning in the unmatched landscapes of Mongolia. You’ll set out from Beijing, China, on a flight to the Mongolian capital of Ulaanbaatar. With a visit to the National History Museum, you’ll be introduced to Mongolia’s rich heritage, history, and people. You’ll next board a plane for the Gobi Desert to experience the spectacular glacial scenery of the Eagle Valley—with more than 300 types of flora and fauna, including the Bactrian camel and the endangered snow leopard. Your adventure in the Gobi Desert includes sand dunes, the Cemetery of Dinosaurs, and a camel-breeders camp to offer fascinating insight into the nomadic lifestyle, ancient culture, and tantalizing traditional foods and folklore.

A highlight of this China tour includes a visit to Xi’an, where you’ll discover the Terracotta Warriors. These well-preserved, life-size figures of thousands of warriors, horses, and chariots were created in the 3rd century BC to accompany China’s first emperor into the afterlife. They are nothing short of spectacular! Of course, no tour to China is complete without a visit to the Great Wall of China, the longest man-made structure in the world. Imagine how you’ll feel when you’re standing on this famous site!

Other highlights of this China tour include visits to the Shanghai Museum, with a collection of 140,000 relics, some dating back 6,000 years; Beijing’s Forbidden City, the home of China’s emperors from 1420 to 1912; and Beijing’s Temple of Heaven, first constructed in 1420 and the place where the emperors of the Ming and Qing Dynasties worshipped the god of heaven and prayed for a good harvest.

You’ll enjoy a Peking duck dinner in Beijing, a walking tour of the Muslim quarter in Xi’an, a visit to a Silk Museum in Shanghai, and more. Your value-minded tour of China and the remarkable traditions and terrain of Mongolia is a journey into a spirit of history, beauty, culture, and natural wonders like no other!
