Discounts up to $400 on China Spree's Middle Kingdom Tour


12 Days, 5 Cities for only $1,499


Blaine, WA, June 18, 2009—Since everyone is looking for a bargain in this economic downturn,  China Spree is offering discounts of up to $400 on its comprehensive 12-day trip called The Middle Kingdom Tour, which covers Beijing, Xian, Hangzhou, Suzhou and Shanghai.  Travelers can get $200 off departures from San Francisco until October 31 and $400 off in November and early December—bringing the November price down to $1,499.


A 12-day tour for $1,499 works out to only $125 per day, which includes air to and in China, first class hotels with private bath, sightseeing and entrance fees, 26 meals, evening entertainment, a tour director and guides, all transportation, baggage handling and more.  Small wonder China Spree is celebrated for "first-class travel at bargain prices."


Among other sights, travelers who book The Middle Kingdom Tour will enjoy:

  • The Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square and the Great Wall in Beijing.
  • The Terra Cotta Warriors in Xian, the eighth wonder of the world.
  • West Lake, "the landscape composed by a painter," in Hangzhou.
  • 2,500-year-old Suzhou, the "Venice of the East," and its classical gardens.
  • Dynamic  Shanghai's elegant Bund, old city and futurist Pudong area.


China Spree's hands-on owner has inspected all the hotels and dined in all the restaurants used on the tour.  He has also arranged special treats like a rickshaw ride through Beijing's hutongs (the old neighborhoods of courtyard homes and narrow lanes) and lunch in the home of a Chinese family.  There are special meals like a Peking duck dinner, a Mongolian barbecue and a dim sum (dumpling) banquet.  In Xian there's a visit to a mosque; in Hangzhou, a visit to a tea plantation and a Chinese Tea Ceremony; and in Suzhou, a tour of a silk spinning mill.  In Shanghai there's a free day for shopping and then the airport transfer on the world's fastest magnetic levitation train.


The Middle Kingdom Tour, with the cash rate and special discount, costs $1,899 from San Francisco until August 31; $1,799 in September and October; and $1,499 in November and early December.   Prices for New York departures are $200 higher.  Flights from both cities are non-stop to Beijing. Other departure cities involve a connection and additional air fare.


All prices quoted are per person, double occupancy and are subject to availability. They do not include the China visa fee or air taxes and fees of $294 from San Francisco, $302 from New York.  For additional information and reservations, log onto  China Spree's toll-free telephone number is 866-652-5656.
