Our tours can start or end in the Chinese capital of Beijing where you can take a cable car ride over the iconic Great Wall, stroll around city palaces and temples, like the Temple of Heaven and Summer Palace, and experience the famous food of China.  And no tour of Beijing would be complete without visiting the world famous Tiananmen Square, a place of enormous cultural and political importance in China. From Beijing you can travel by bullet train to the ancient Sichuan city of Xi’an to marvel at the stunning Terracotta Warriors and visit the Neolithic settlement of Banpo Village. Brightsun Travel offers cheap holidays to China including 7 day tours of Beijing and Xi’an alongside cruises along the Li River, taking in the dramatic scenery of the Karst hills, and soaking up traditional Chinese culture.

If Beijing and Xi’an aren't enough, or if you have longer than a week on your hands, Brightsun Travel has other fantastic holidays to China that include the incredible metropolis of Shanghai, a city that has developed at such warp speed that it boasts contemporary architecture like no other Chinese city. A tour of the scenic Yu Garden, the Old Town, museums and silk factories reveal Shanghai’s more historic and traditional side, whilst it's ‘French neighbourhood’ and entertainment district of Xintiandi would make for a perfect night out. Only 90 miles south of Shanghai is the ancient water village of Wuzhen, built around waterways and canals, showcasing a very different way of life to its more space age neighbour. Here you can take a boat trip along winding canals and experience traditional China. Or you could combine the incredible cities of Shanghai, Beijing and Xi’an with a cruise down the Yangtze River, passing through breathtaking scenery such as the Three Gorges Dam, Shennong Stream and the Fengdu Ghost City. Throw in a side trip to the world renowned Panda Breeding and Research Centre in Chengdu and you have the ultimate tour of China.
