Our in-depth discovery of China begins in Beijing, the capital of China. We will start our journey with 5 days of study in the suburbs of Beijing. The hotel is located nearby Goose Lake. After the lectures, we will visit the Great Wall, one of the world wonders; the Summer Palace, one of the loveliest imperial parks in China; the Forbidden City, the Chinese imperial palace from the Ming dynasty to the end of Qing dynasty, and Tiananmen Square.
Kunming is the capital and largest city of Yunnan province in southwest China. Early settlements in the area can be dated back to 279BC. In Kunming, we will visit Dian Lake, known as “Sparkling Pearl Embedded in a Highland”. Kunming Stone Forest is another famous sight. It is a spectacular set of limestone groups and the representative of south China’s karst landscape. Known since the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) as the “First Wonder of the World”. Kunming enjoys a mild spring-like climate throughout the year.
Da li ~~
Dali lies on a fertile plain between the Diancang Mountains and beautiful Erhai Lake. Its history stretches back to 8th Century. The walled ancient city, from the Ming dynasty, contains traditional homes and towers from the Bai ethnic minority. Beyond the old city rise the Three Pagodas of Chong Sheng temple, dating to the 9th century. The Erhai Lake covers an area of 96 square miles and is located about 1.2 miles east of Dali. It is like a crescent lying between Cangshan and Dali city as seen from Cangshan Mountain.
Lijiang is a perfect combination of historical sites, snow-capped mountains, lakes and ethnic minority cultures. It is famed worldwide for its UNESCO Heritage site, the old town of Lijiang, which dates back to over 800 years ago. It is the main region inhabited by the Naxi People, one of China’s 55 minority ethnic groups. Looking from Lijiang Old Town in the south which is 9 miles away, the snow-covered and fog-enlaced mountain resembles a jade dragon lying in the clouds, hence the name.
Shanghai is the largest economic and trade center in China, and one of China’s cultural centers. It retains the last vestiges of China’s unusual colonial past. The architecture along the Bund is a living museum of the colonial history of the 1800s. We will be visiting the Jade Buddha Temple, Chenghuang Bazaar and a silk making factory in Shanghai.
