On the Luxury China Fam from Flo Tours, must-see sights such as the Great Wall, the Summer Palace and the Terracotta Warriors are interspersed with lesser known sights such as Xian’s Muslim Quarter and the limestone formations near Guilin.

On the final days of the trip, travel agents will board the MS Yangzi Explorer and sail on the iconic Yangtze River from Yichang to Chongqing, passing the Three Gorges region along the way. Onboard activities include dumpling making and calligraphy classes. Hotels, most meals, entry fees and domestic flights are part of the tour.
