In flight


Beijing

Arrive in Beijing and transfer to our hotel, where we enjoy dinner at the hotel tonight.

V-Continent Beijing Parkview Wuzhou Hotel (4T+)


Beijing

Today we discover what makes Beijing the political and cultural heart of China. Our guided tour includes a Tai Chi lesson with a renowned master at the Temple of Heaven, where emperors of ancient China would worship Heaven. We also spend time contemplating Tian’anmen Square and the monumental Gate of Heavenly Peace, which leads us into the Imperial Palace. The Forbidden City is the world’s largest palace complex, a self-contained home of 24 emperors during the Ming and Qing Dynasties.


Beijing

Visit a jade factory, and then one of the New 7 Wonders of the World - the Great Wall. This ancient defensive line was built over two millennia, reinforced with watchtowers and fortresses. We also see the Summer Palace, surrounded by the largest, and arguably loveliest, landscape in Beijing, with fine pavilions and temples. It was a welcomed break for the Imperial Family from the hot summers in the Forbidden City. Enjoy a traditional Peking Duck dinner this evening.


Beijing - Xi’an

We traverse the 756-mile journey to Xi’an by bullet train, reaching speeds of up to 186mph. Upon arrival in Xi’an we transfer to our hotel. We’ll enjoy a traditional dumpling dinner this evening.

Sofitel Xi’an on Renmin Square (4T+)


Xi’an

Today includes the incredible Terracotta Warriors of the Qin Dynasty, and the Xi'an Terracotta Reproduction Factory which specialises in recreating the famous warrior and horse figurines. We then return to the city centre to explore the Big Wild Goose Pagoda, an ancient holy place for Buddhists which housed several Buddha relics; and learn about the Ancient City Wall, an 8.5-mile-long fortification protected by 98 ramparts. Later, you can watch an optional Tang Dynasty Dancing Show.


Xi’an - Hong Kong

We travel to the airport for our flight to Hong Kong and transfer to our hotel for two nights. We’ll enjoy dinner this evening.

Royal Pacific Hotel, Hong Kong (4T)


Hong Kong

A tour of Hong Kong includes a one-way journey on the Peak Tram, ascending above the skyscrapers to the highest point on Hong Kong Island. A free afternoon allows you to further explore the British Crown colony that was returned to China in 1997. Hong Kong’s most recognisable landmark, the 34m-high Tian Tan Buddha, sits next to one of Buddhism’s most important monasteries. Or take a less strenuous walk along the Avenue of Stars, Hong Kong’s tribute to cinematic legacies.

Once an independent kingdom, this Japanese archipelago is surrounded by fantastic coral reefs and abundant marine life.

Japan’s southernmost major city is nicknamed the ‘Naples of the Eastern World’, due to its caldera bay location, hot climate and volcano. The majestic view of Mt Sakurajima dominates the city’s landscape, towering over the beautiful Kinko Bay.

Seven Seas Voyager® (5T)

Day 16 - Miyazaki

Miyazaki is connected with myths of gods and the creation of Japan, and considered the birthplace of Emperor Jinmu, Japan’s supposed first Emperor; however many attractions here are modern theatres, galleries and centres of science. Tour lively 'Little Kyoto' at Obi Castle Town, journey along the coast to take in the premium coastal vistas in Hyuga and unwind on the serene Aoshima Island.

Seven Seas Voyager® (5T)

Days 17-18 - Osaka (overnight)

The third largest city in Japan, Osaka dates back to the Auka and Nara period. It was once the capital of Japan from AD 683-745 and continued to play an important role as a hub for land, sea and river-canal transportation. In a nation of obsessive gourmands, Osaka is known as an excellent place to eat. An overnight stay allows plenty of time to make your explorations, perhaps visiting the 16th century Osaka castle or taking a bullet train to Kyoto.

Seven Seas Voyager® (5T)

Day 19 - Shimizu

On a clear day, you can see magnificent Mount Fuji from the lively port of Shimizu. Whilst here, perhaps visit the S-Pulse Dream Plaza to tour the Shimizu Sushi Museum to learn about the history and variations of Japan’s most famous fare. Or stroll through the Kashni-no-Ichi Market, where some of the port’s fresh seafood is sold.

Seven Seas Voyager® (5T)

Day 20 - Tokyo (overnight)

As the seat of the Japanese government and the home of the Imperial Family, Tokyo is the de facto capital of Japan. The firebombings of WWII in 1945 were almost as devastating as the atomic bombs of Hiroshima and Nagasaki combined. After the war, Tokyo was completely rebuilt. An overnight stop allows plenty of time for you to explore.

Seven Seas Voyager® (5T)

Day 21 Tokyo - UK
