Day 6 Xian/Terra Cotta Army/Home-Hosted Lunch/Optional Tang Dynasty Show & Dinner
Today, enjoy a full-day excursion to visit China’s greatest archaeological attraction, the Qin Mausoleum.

Day 7 Xian
This morning, you’ll visit the Small Wild Goose Pagoda. One of the oldest pagodas in China, this delicately tiered pagoda is housed in the Jianfu Temple. Today’s exploring also includes a stop at a lacquerware furniture workshop, where you’ll witness local artisans creating intricate designs. Cap off your discoveries with lunch at a local restaurant.
Day 8 Xian/Fly to Beijing/Traditional Chinese Dinner
Explore Xian on your own this morning, then transfer to the airport to fly from the dry northwestern plateau of Xian to the urban tumble of China’s modern capital, Beijing. The cradle of Chinese civilization, Beijing is one of China’s six ancient capitals, and although it is known to have been peopled since around 1000 BC, some scholars believe people lived here as much as 2,000 years before that. Benefiting from its location as a geographic link between China’s farming population and nomadic tribes, Beijing was named the capital of the Yan Kingdom in 586 BC, and served as the capital of four feudal dynasties between 1125 and 1911. In October 1949, Beijing was declared the capital of the People’s Republic of China and has since performed as its cultural, financial, and political hub.
Day 9 Beijing/Tiananmen Square & Forbidden City/ Beijing Opera & Dinner Tour
After breakfast, set off on a sightseeing tour of Beijing. You’ll walk around the largest and most imposing public square in the world. Tiananmen Square has been the setting for mass Red Guard rallies through the years and, in 1989, saw huge pro-democracy demonstrations.
Day 10 Beijing/Beijing’s Hidden Lanes
This morning, visit the Kung Fu School, where you may learn some new moves during a demonstration. Then visit a jade workshop, where you will learn about Chinese jade-carving and possibly make a purchase, if you wish.
Day 11 Beijing/Great Wall & Ming Tombs
Today, you’ll explore the fabled Great Wall of China, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Construction of the Great Wall began during the Warring States Period (403-221 BC), with sections built in scattered areas to protect various provinces from northern tribes. It was only following China’s unification under its first emperor, Qin Shi Huang (221-206 BC) that some 300,000 men were put to work connecting the segments into one rampart of brick, stone, and earth nearly 4,000 miles long. Intended to shield the nation from invaders, the Great Wall is now, ironically, one of China’s leading tourist attractions.
