Tour description provided by G Adventures

It’s a rare tour that can include the word “classic” in its name and have it feel like an understatement. This adventure packs a ton of pure, unfiltered China into 13 incredible days, starting with two days in bustling Hong Kong. From there, you’ll move on to scenic Yangshuo (home of the majestic limestone karsts), explore Yunnan (a showcase for China’s incredible ethnic diversity), hike the drop-dead gorgeous Tiger Leaping Gorge, meet pandas in Chengdu, and wrap it all up in Xi’an, starting point of the fabled Silk Road. If you think you'll only go to China once, take this tour. Trust us; it won’t be your last visit.
