Beijing, Xian, Suzhou and Shanghai for Only $1,499


What a Deal


Bellevue, WA, August 20, 2012—China Spree Travel, the tour operator whose motto is “first class travel at bargain prices” has come up with another unbeatable deal—and not just for winter.  The 10-day China’s Golden Triangle tour costs as little as $1,499 and includes China’s three most interesting cities—Beijing, Xian and Shanghai, as well as the town of Suzhou, famed for its classical gardens and canals, and—oh yes—the charming little water village of Tongli.  The tour is available from November 8, 2012 to October 29, 2013, but reservations should be made as soon as possible, since the tour will sell out quickly.


The $1,499 covers round-trip air fare from San Francisco ($50 more from Los Angeles, $100 more from New York), all intra-China flights and transportation, deluxe hotel accommodations, daily American buffet breakfast, 10 other bountiful meals, special culinary experiences, evening shows, comprehensive sightseeing tours with entrance fees and professional guides in each city, plus fuel surcharges and taxes and fees.


This comprehensive tour takes in seven UNESCO World Heritage Sites.  In the capital, Beijing, sightseeing includes the legendary Great Wall of China, the Forbidden City and it’s 9,999 rooms, the Temple of Heaven, the idyllic Summer Palace and its extravagant Marble Boat, and a rickshaw ride through an historic neighborhood followed by lunch with a local family.  In historic Xian you’ll visit  China’s greatest archaeological discovery: the Terracotta Warriors and Horses, which guarded the tomb of China’s First Emperor for more than 2,200 years, and the seven-story Wild Goose Pagoda.  In bustling, cosmopolitan Shanghai, the sights are the colonial-era riverside Bund and the futuristic Pudong’s skyscrapers.  Then there’s a motor-coach trip to Suzhou, often called “the Venice of the East,” to see the most famous traditional garden and a silk mill, and to pretty Tongli with its Ming-style houses, canals, stone bridges and cobbled lanes.


Along the way there are yummy lunches and dinners in local restaurants, a Peking Duck feast, a dim sum banquet, a Tang Dynasty stage show, a performance of the Shanghai Acrobats and a ride to the airport on the world’s fastest magnetic levitation train..


The hotels are all attractive, conveniently-located and supremely comfortable.  The beautiful 4-star Traders Hotel in Beijing, a brand new offshoot of the luxury Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts company, has direct access to a fabulous shopping mall.  The Grand Noble Hotel, smack in the middle of  Xian, is decorated in Chinese style and has mini-bars, high-speed internet and a western bakery. And the 4-star Shanghai Ocean Hotel, recently remodeled, has elegant furnishings and all modern conveniences.


All prices quoted are the cash discount rate, are per person double occupancy and are subject to availability.  Air fare add-ons are available from many other U.S. departure cities as are land-only tours.  For additional information and reservations, log onto and click China Tours, then  Specials.  China Spree’s toll-free telephone number is 855-556-6868.
