Family Tour for Children with Kite Flying
from US$1240 per person

We prepare this tour especially for the families with children who are going to come to China in such a beautiful spring time! Those four cities have been the "Top Four" tourist cities in China ever since this country was opened to the outside world in the late 1970s. They are so popular with international tourists because you can experience different attractions that are all China's prides. In the capital city of Beijing, the Great Wall, the Forbidden City and the Temple of Heaven and the other places of interests that are in the list of the World Cultural Heritage will give you the first impression on China. Stories told by your guide when you're standing in the world's largest imperial palace will help you learn lots of history about China's last two imperial dynasties, the Ming and the Qing Dynasty. If it is not that crowded, a kite flying will be prepared for the children in the Temple of Heaven. People say if you regard China as a huge and robust tree, the city of Xi'an is definitely the deeply-earthed roots of the tree. The Bell Tower, the City Wall, the pagodas are all the witnesses of this ancient capital's prosperity and brilliance in the past. The Terra Cotta Warriors and Horses is still a mysterious legend of the first centralized feudal empire of China. The "Most Beautiful Landscape under the Heaven" in Guilin will refresh you after days of palaces, temples and museums. The picturesque scenery along the Li River will amaze you and consume dozens of films or a big capacity of the memory card in your camera. The beautiful and peaceful environment and the relaxing life-pace will stimulate you to think about making a home here. Another kite flying will be arranged in a valley in Yangshuo when we're doing a cycling tour there. You will probably be shocked by Shanghai's modernization and fashionable life. A walk to the Nanjing Road and the Outer Bund will inform you how booming China's economy is.
