Wendy Wu China Splendour Itinerary: 

Days 1-2: Fly to Shanghai

Fly overnight to the exuberant city of Shanghai, called ‘the Paris of the East'. Depending on your time of arrival the rest of the day is yours to start soaking up the local culture.

Day 3: Discover Shanghai

Shanghai is China's great metropolis, where east and west collide on streets lined with futuristic skyscrapers and 10th-century temples. Explore the fine arts and antiquities of the Shanghai Museum, visit the Yu Gardens and admire the magnificent colonial architecture with a stroll along the Bund. Follow the age-old silk production process at the Silk Museum, from the cultivation of silkworms up to creating the final piece. This evening view the city from the Huangpu River on a panoramic cruise and enjoy a delicious meal of traditional Shanghai cuisine.

Day 4: Fly to Beijing

Fly to Beijing, China's fascinating capital. Soak up the harmonious ambience of the Temple of Heaven, an orderly oasis in a bustling urban landscape. This evening savour Beijing's best-known delicacy –Peking Duck.

Day 5: Forbidden City

Heading to Beijing's symbolic heart, stroll across Tiananmen Square and into the sprawling magnificence of the Forbidden City – a monument to China's dynastic past. Entering through the Gate of Supreme Harmony, you will find a complex full of imperial riches. An evening of Chinese acrobatics rounds off the day.

Day 6: Great Wall & Summer Palace

This morning is dedicated to China's most iconic sight – the Great Wall. An astounding feat of construction, there is no better way to appreciate both the sheer magnificence of the wall and the dramatic scenery that it crosses than a fascinating walk along it. Relax in the idyllic landscapes of the Summer Palace as you explore traditional Chinese gardens and view exquisite architecture.

Day 7: Explore Xian

Fly to Xian, the historic former capital. Visit the lovely Little Wild Goose Pagoda and admire the priceless treasures of the Shaanxi Museum. Tonight feast on traditional Shui Jiao dumplings before a performance of Tang Dynasty dancing.

Day 8: Terracotta Warriors

After their fortuitous discovery in the1970s, the Terracotta Army of China's first Emperor Qin Shihuang has intrigued visitors ever since. Spend the morning viewing the enigmatic ranks of lifelike warriors. Visit the workshop of the craftsmen who recreate Terracotta Warriors in the style of their ancient counterparts. Watch the skilled production process and choose to purchase your own little warrior to take home. Later stroll on the beautifully preserved 14th-century city walls that enclose Xian's old town, and soak up the atmosphere in the narrow alleyways of the Muslim Quarter.

Days 9-10: Nine Villages Valley

A national park of ragged peaks, sapphire lakes, abundant forests and rushing waterfalls, the Nine Villages Valley (Jiuzhaigou National Park) is considered one of China's most beautiful areas. Named after the nine typical Tibetan settlements scattered throughout the valley, the park is a World Biosphere Reserve, full of endemic flora and 140 species of birds. Whilst the scenery transforms with the seasons it is always spectacular and you will spend time in the depths of it, revelling in your arresting surroundings.

Day 11: Huanglong Pools, fly to Chengdu

Hundreds of vivid pools in striking colours, formed by thousands of years of mineral deposits, tumble gently down through the bright green forests of the Huanglong Valley. The whole area is studded with waterfalls and hot springs and, as it is relatively undiscovered, is a pleasure to explore. There is an option to take the chairlift up to Huanglong Temple at the head of the valley for excellent views over the whole valley. Later, fly to Chengdu.

Day 12: Giant Pandas

Visit Chengdu's famous Panda Conservation Centre where you can get up close to China's celebrated bears, as they chomp through piles of bamboo, in surroundings that mirror their natural habitat.

Day 13: Grand Buddha of Leshan

Travel to Leshan to visit the Grand Buddha which, at 71 metres, is the world's largest stone-carved Buddhist monument and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. A short boat trip on the river will give even better views of the statue. Returning to Chengdu, there will be a stop at the riverside village of Huanglongxi, where cobbled streets and rickety wooden buildings retain the charms of the Qing Dynasty.

Days 14: Fly Chengdu to UK

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