Big Deal: $800 Savings with China’s Golden Triangle Tour


Blaine, WA, July 28, 2011—China Spree has come up with still another winner: a 10-day tour covering the highlights of China—Beijing, Shanghai, Xian and Suzhou—that costs only $1,399 plus tax in November, January, February and March, for savings of $800. Booked independently, the air, hotel, meals and sightseeing would cost more than $2,200. 


The Golden Triangle tour includes round-trip, non-stop transpacific air from San Francisco, fuel surcharge, 4-star hotel accommodations, daily American breakfasts, nine other meals, evening shows, comprehensive sightseeing and professional guides—which adds up to one fabulous deal.


The comfortable, first-class hotels are the Beijing Huabin International, the Shanghai Crowne Plaza, and the Xian Grand Noble.  All are well-located near major sites, shops and restaurants and all offer the comforts of home: TV, Internet access, direct dial telephone, minibar, hair dryer, etc.


Beijing sightseeing includes a tour of the 100-acre Tiananmen Square; the 999-room palace complex called the Forbidden City; a rickshaw ride through Old Beijing’s hutongs (traditional neighborhoods of maze-like alleys and courtyard houses); and lunch with a dumpling-making demonstration in a family home.  In the evening there’s a special welcome dinner of Beijing (aka Peking) Duck.  Then a full-day excursion takes in the Sacred Way of Ming Tombs and the legendary Great Wall of China.  And the third day features a visit to the Temple of Heaven and the Summer Palace, once the summer retreat of the royal court.


After a flight to the ancient capital of  Xian, there’s a tour of the famous Terra Cotta Warriors, which “guarded” the tomb of China’s first emperor for 2,200 years, as well as an evening dim sum banquet and Tang Dynasty stage show. 


In Shanghai, China’s dynamic financial  center, sightseeing includes  skyscraping Pudong, the symbol of modern China and the renowned Bund, the heart of colonial Shanghai.  Dinner is followed by a performance of the Shanghai Acrobats.  Then a full-day excursion to Suzhou, the “Venice of the East,” known for its canals and classical gardens, and to Tongli, a pretty little water town.  And, finally, a day at leisure with free time for shopping and exploring Shanghai.


All prices quoted are the cash discount rate, are per person double occupancy, are subject to availability and do not include departure taxes of $87. Add-on air fares are $330 from New York (non-stop), $320 from Philadelphia, $190 from Washington, D.C., $320 from Miami, $190 from Chicago, $250 from Houston and $150 from Los Angeles.
