Wonders Of China

The Great Wall Throughout much of history, China had remained a relatively isolated country; an ancient and mys-terious land little known to the western world. Now undergoing a period of rapid development and modernization like none ever seen before, this once distant country is now opening its arms widely to the outside world. There has never been a better time to experience the wonders of China. From the historical wonders of the Great Wall and Xian's ancient Terra-Cotta Warriors to the breathtaking natural wonders of the Yangtze River's Three Gorges and Guilin's Li River to the modern wonders of the neon lined bustling streets and skyscrapers of bustling Shanghai and Hong Kong, China has so much to see and expe-rience. Whether you prefer a relaxing cruise on the Yangtze River or an adventurous visit to the Tibetan highlands, our itineraries offer something for everyone. Traveling in China is a cultural and historic learning experience that will leave an impression on you for a lifetime. We at Travel Design USA's China Discovery Tours intend to do everything possible to provide an enjoyable, comfortable, and secure tour. As all-inclusive guided tours, everything is taken care of for you. All you have to do is just sit back, relax, and enjoy the experience of this fascinating and unique land.

Historical Wonders
Beijing is the starting point for all our tours and its historical wonders con-tinue to impress the eyes no matter how many times you return to see them. The Great Wall of China is one of the true wonders of the world and it is said that one has not truly lived until they have stood upon the wall. The Forbidden City located precisely in the center of the city towers over Changan Boulevard and its sea of bicycles below. A walk though the massive pal-ace provides visitors a first-hand experience of how the Emperors lived and ruled the immense country from within its walls. Xian, China's ancient capital fea-tures the Terracotta Warriors site, which has been called the Eight Wonder of the World. With excavation still in progress this is a remarkable chance to witness the un-covering of history in progress. Visitors to Xian also enjoy experiencing Buddhist tradition by burning incense at the Big Goose Pagoda. Tibet's Potala Palace was constructed high in the Himalayas and towers above Lhasa as the most sacred spot of Tibetan Buddhism. Visi-tors weave through its grand halls as Tibetan Monks wor-ship and sing hymns. The Dunhuang Grottoes were painted by monks to portray life upon the Silk Road through the centuries. They exist today as a testament to the bustling trade routes that led to the western world centuries ago.

The Forbidden City
Natural Wonders
The natural beauty of China's land-scapes has long been the inspiration for world famous works of art, novels, and poetry. Guilin, Suzhou, and Hangzhou epitomize such beauty and appear today much as they did centuries ago to the eyes of Marco Polo. Travelers marvel at the mystical limestone formations seen along Guilin's Li River which are unique to that region. The gardens and waterways of Suzhou and Hangzhou are some of the most beautiful in China. Of course, the Yangtze River's Three Gorges are unparalleled among China's natural wonders.

Modern Wonders
Several years ago National Geographic wrote that nearly half the world's construction cranes were in operation in Shanghai alone. The resulting modernization of Shanghai and other major cities across China has been nothing less than remarkable. The Pearl TV Tower and various skyscrapers along Shanghai's Pudong District contrast the famous colonial era buildings across the Huangpu River's Bund. Hong Kong, long known as the "Jewel of the Orient" boasts a neon lined skyline that rivals any in the world. Our travelers are encouraged to take full advantage of the dining, nightlife and shopping in China's major cities.
