Wendy Wu A China Adventure Itinerary: 

Days 1 – 2 – Fly to Beijing

Fly overnight to Beijing, China's historical capital. Depending on your time of arrival the rest of the day is yours to start soaking up the local culture.

Day 3 – Forbidden City and Summer Palace Walk

Stroll across Tiananmen Square and into the sprawling magnificence of the Forbidden City. Walking through this ornately designed complex offers an unsurpassed insight into China's colourful past. Continue to the idyllic Summer Palace and explore the magnificent grounds, before taking a short hike up Longevity Hill to enjoy panoramic views. (B,L,D)

Day 4 – Beijing's Hutongs

Arrive early for a visit to the Temple of Heaven and mingle with the locals as they start their day with tai chi, dancing and card playing in a flurry of sociable activity you would never see in a park at home. Next, you'll visit Dazhalanxijie Street where you'll have free time to wander the Hutongs; these narrow alleys offer an authentic glimpse of the old Beijing, before the emergence of high-rise buildings and modern commerce. Take lunch at a traditional Beijing Noodle House, before driving to the Great Wall at Jinshanling. (B,L,D)

Day 5 – Hike the Great Wall

Rise early to catch an unforgettable sunrise over the Great Wall. Jinshanling is much less frequented by tourists than other parts of the Wall. The stark, yet magnificent surroundings allow you to put yourself in the shoes of those who walked this incredible edifice hundreds of years ago. Your trek will last approximately six hours as the wall improbably courses through dramatic landscapes and rugged terrain. Later, head back to Beijing, where you'll have free time. Buzzing Sanlitun or lakeside Houhai are a great choice for the evening. (B,L)

Day 6 – Xian by Bullet Train

Ride the bullet train to Xian, the ancient former capital. Take in an optional fountain and light show and be dazzled by the city at night. (B,L,D)

Day 7 – Terracotta Warriors and Cycling on the City Wall

Housed in three immense hangars, the ranks of the Terracotta Army stand sentinel in their subterranean necropolis, constructed to protect China's first Emperor in the afterlife. Gaze over the ranks of warriors and horses, each one unique, whilst your guide introduces you to these life-like soldiers' fascinating story. Continue to the ancient city wall for a cycle on the fortifications surrounding the heart of the city. Take a walking tour of the narrow and twisting streets of the Muslim Quarter. Sample the delicious, freshly cooked snacks and gain an insight into the city's fascinating culture and significance as the start of the Silk Road. (B,L)

Day 8 – Pingle Ancient Town

Fly to Chengdu and drive to Pingle Ancient Town. Dating back to the Han Dynasty, Pingle was a stopping point on the Tea Horse Road. Take time to walk through its maze of teahouse-lined streets before seeing the forest from above on Jinjigu Suspended Rope Bridge. Lastly pay a visit to Lugou Bamboo Sea where you can get lost amongst creaking, swishing spears of green. Drive to Ya'an. (B,L,D)

Day 9 – Bifengxia Pandas and Bifeng Gorge Walk
Located high in the Sichuan mountains, lush Bifengxia offers refuge to China's cuddly icons, the Giant Panda. The panda centre's rural location offers one of the most authentic, spacious and natural settings in the country, working towards the conservation of this endangered species. Later walk through Bifeng Gorge, passing fairytale-like waterfalls trickling throuhg otherworldly forest. (B,L,D)

Day 10 – Journey to Ping An

Drive to Chengdu and fly to Guilin before transferring to Ping An for an overnight stay.

Day 11 – Rice Terraces and Ethnic Villages Hike

Wake up the stunning views of the misty, stepped hills of Longji. Today's full-day hike from Ping An to Dazhai will take you past small hamlets and picture-postcard views of rice terraces which cover the landscape in intricate patterns. Whether full of water or bursting with rice plants, a walk in Longji provides an unforgettable experience of rural China. Return to Guilin where the evening is at leisure. (B,L)

Day 12 – Yangshuo Countryside

Take a gentle cruise along the Li River to Yangshuo. Lined with the most dramatic, sci-fi style limestone cliffs on the planet, the serenity of life on the riverbanks is a wonderful sight. Later, take a walk through this idyllic wonderland and get an insight into life here. There's an option to take a short and steep but rewarding hike to the top of Xianggong Hill for epic sunset views. (B,L,D)

Day 13 – Tai Chi and Country Cycling

Start the day with a relaxing yet invigorating session of tai chi, taking time with a master to learn this ancient martial art. This afternoon there is the option of riding a bicycle through the countryside - another chance to really soak up the unspoiled surroundings and explore every corner of this exquisite location. (B,L)

Day 14 – Yangshuo Rafting

This morning is at leisure, or you may wish to join an optional bamboo rafting trip along the Yulong River for one last, tranquil jaunt in Yangshuo. Drift past verdant riverbanks and under ancient bridges as you paddle on glass-like waters. Drive back to Guilin and go from the serene to the supercharged as you fly to Shanghai. (B,L)

Day 15 – Shanghainese Shanghai

Wake up to the buzz of Shanghai, and take a breakfast walking tour between coruscating skyscrapers and traditional streets. Walk through the city's most fascinating districts, marvelling at monuments and rickety buildings before enjoying breakfast as the locals do - sample pancakes, fried bread sticks and tofu. Visit the Yu Yuan Gardens, the Old Town and the Silk Museum before taking an evening stroll along the Bund and a farewell dinner of authentic Shanghainese cuisine. Your final farewell to China will be a cruise down the Huangpu River, serenaded by the neon lights of Pudong. (B,L,D)

Day 16 – Fly to the UK

Fly to the UK, arriving home the same or following day. (B)
