Hike through the spectacular Tiger Leaping Gorge; traverse the Chinese section of the ancient Silk Road; visit the mist-enshrouded granite peaks of Huangshan and cruise through the Yangtze River's breathtaking Three Gorges.
Pummel your senses in the super-modern, non-stop party metropolis of Shanghai; watch Shaolin monks performing ancient martial arts; experience China's rich ancient culture and eat your way around this food-lovers paradise, sampling each of China's eight regional culinary traditions.
