This fantastic new tour covers some of China’s must-see sights including Tian’anmen Square, the Great Wall, the Terracotta Warriors and Shanghai, whilst also venturing off track into Yunnan Province to meet the Bai and Naxi people for a look into ethnic lifestyles untouched by modernisation. Then journey north into Tibet, still full of mystery, with China’s hold on the autonomous region restricting access for decades, keeping it at the top of many travellers’ hit list, yet out of reach. Beautiful Lhasa is the highlight of this tour, with visits to Potala Palace, the historical home of the Dalai Lama, and Jokhang Temple, the spiritual centre of Tibetan Buddhism, before we board the Lhasa Express for an unforgettable train journey.
