The first stop is Yuyuan Garden, a famous classical garden which was originally built by the owner as a place for his parents to enjoy a tranquil and happy time in their old age. Nearby the garden is Yuyuan Market, a bustling marketplace set in an old Chinese neighborhood with traditional architecture and shops selling everything from local snacks to various souvenirs. Next we will wander around Nanjing Road to see traditional department stores and optionally try some authentic Shanghai snacks.

  2. AM: After breakfast, your guide and driver will meet you at your hotel lobby and start for the Terracotta Warriors. Known as the Eighth Wonder of the World, the Terracotta Warriors slept under the ground for 2,200 years before the accidental discovery by local farmers who were digging wells. The life-size terracotta warriors differ from one another in clothing, hairstyle, posture and facial expression. Since its opening to public in 1979, it attracts millions of people from all over the world each year and has become one of the things that represent China throughout the world.

    Noon: Lunch in local restaurant.

    PM: After a Chinese style lunch, we will drive back to Xian downtown to visit Ancient City Wall, the largest and best-preserved ancient city wall in China. It served as the military defensive system in ancient times, which can be traced back to the Tang Dynasty. After arriving at the City Wall, you can optionally choose to explore the wall by foot or ride a bike to enjoy the panoramic views of the city and take in 600 years of history whistling past your face.

    Then it’s time to say goodbye to this ancient capital. Your guide and driver will escort you to catch the flight back to Shanghai. When you arrive in Shanghai, your driver will wait for you at the exit of the arrival hall by holding a name sign and transfer you to the cruise port. Our service will end here. Wish you a pleasant journey.
