Save $400 on China Spree’s 14-Day Best Treasures Tour



$2,699 Starting Price Includes Air Fare, Luxury Hotels, 28 Meals, More


Bellevue, WA, October 30, 2014—What a deal.  Book and pay by November 30 and you can save $400 on this China Spree tour that takes in China’s highlights and includes virtually everything, all for the amazing starting price of  $2,699.


The $2,699 from San Francisco (it’s $100 more from Houston, $200 more from New York) includes non-stop transpacific flights; intra-China transportation; extensive sightseeing and entrance fees; smart, knowledgeable and fun tour director and guides; and 5-star luxury hotels like the Marriott Beijing City Wall, Marriott Shanghai City Center, Sheraton Xian North City and the riverside Sheraton Guilin, which is as much resort as hotel. 


Equally important for “foodies,” the tour includes daily buffet breakfast (American

and Chinese) plus ten lunches and six dinners.  There are also gastronomic treats like a Peking duck dinner, a Mongolian barbecue and a dim sum banquet. Not your usual tour fare, these specially-chosen delicious meals “spoil you for Chinese restaurants at home,” according to a recent tour participant.


The comprehensive itinerary includes must-sees like the imperial treasures in Beijing: the legendary Great Wall of China, the infamous Tiananmen Square, the 9,999-room palace called the Forbidden City, and the Summer Palace gardens and Marble Boat.  But it also provides unique experiences like the hiking tour to the Dragon Spine Terraces at Long Sheng, which passes fascinating minority villages and villagers on the way to the extraordinarily beautiful and photogenic rice terraces (and a memorably delectable lunch).


Also on the itinerary are the famous Terracotta Warriors in ancient Xian and the breathtaking landscape of limestone pinnacles on the Li River cruise from Guilin (some of the most beautiful scenery in China).  In Suzhou the tour visits a classical garden and a very interesting silk factory and, in the charming little water town of Tongli, a gondola ride through the canals provides a view of Ming-dynasty houses, bridges and cobbled streets. The tour ends in exciting Shanghai, China’s most cosmopolitan city, which boasts the colonial-era Bund, the futuristic Pudong’s skyscrapers, some good museums and great shopping.


Oh yes, not to forget the extras that help make this tour so special: a rickshaw ride through Beijing’s hutongs, or ancient alleyways, with lunch in a family’s traditional courtyard home; a performance of the Shanghai Acrobats; the Tang Dynasty show; and a ride on the world’s fastest magnetic levitation train.


Repeat: To get the $400 discount, the tour must be booked and paid for by November 30. All prices (which rise in the late spring) are cash-only, are per person double occupancy and are subject to availability.  Add-on air fares are available from many other U.S. cities.
