Vacation Overview

Embark on a 17-day odyssey that includes affordable guided tours in Mongolia and China, with the perfect ending in Hong Kong. To begin, you’ll fly from Beijing to Mongolia’s capital city of Ulaanbaatar to embark on an adventure in the Gobi Desert. Sand dunes, the Cemetery of Dinosaurs, and a camel-breeders camp offer fascinating insight into the nomadic lifestyle, ancient culture, and tantalizing traditional foods. Your affordable vacation in Mongolia returns to the dynamic city of Beijing, China, where you’ll visit its iconic sites.

A highlight of this China tour includes a visit to Xi’an, where you'll discover the Terracotta Warriors. These well-preserved, life-size figures of thousands of warriors, horses, and chariots were created in the 3rd century BC to accompany China's first emperor into the afterlife. They are nothing short of spectacular! Of course, no tour to China is complete without a visit to the Great Wall of China, the longest man-made structure in the world. Imagine how you'll feel when you're standing on this famous site!

Other highlights of this China tour include visits to the Shanghai Museum, with a collection of 140,000 relics, some dating back 6,000 years; Beijing’s Forbidden City, the home of China's emperors from 1420 to 1912; and Beijing's Temple of Heaven, first constructed in 1420 and the place where the emperors of the Ming and Qing Dynasties worshipped the god of heaven and prayed for a good harvest.

You'll enjoy a Peking duck dinner in Beijing, a walking tour of the Muslim quarter in Xi'an, a visit to a Silk Museum in Shanghai, and more. In Hong Kong, take a cable-car ride for sweeping views of Victoria Harbour, savor a dim sum lunch, and enjoy a full day at your leisure to explore the city at your own pace. Your value-minded tour of China and the remarkable traditions and terrain of Mongolia is a journey into a spirit of history, beauty, culture, and natural wonders like no other!
