BeijingLegend of Kung Fu

Enjoy a thrilling evening of entertainment at the Legend of Kung Fu Show. The performance follows the journey of a young monk found wandering outside an ancient temple who, like most boys his age, dreams of becoming a legendary Kung Fu master. On the road to enlightenment the young monk is faced with many hardships and temptations. The story is told through Kung Fu, dance and acrobatic stunts, and is a fusion of modern dance and Chinese traditional arts.

BeijingHutong Rickshaw tour with lunch/ Flea Market

Amongst the giant mega towers of Beijing, lies a small piece of authentic Beijing. Here, in the Hutong neighborhood, you will find traditional courtyard style houses that date back hundreds of years. You will travel back in time to explore the hutong area on rickshaws, before enjoying lunch with a local family. Afterwards you will continue on to the famous Wangfujing walking district and explore the flea market, where incredible bargains can be found.

Beijing – Acrobatic Show

The Chaoyang Acrobat Show is in our opinion one of the best shows to see while on tour in China. It appeals to all ages, from young children to adults. It is very visual and the show is not made of “tricks” but is feats of skill and fitness. It is comparable to many international Cirque style shows but at a price much lower and an opportunity to sit much closer. Having seen all the acrobat shows in Beijing and Shanghai, we consider this one to be the best of the lot.

Shanghai Huangpu River Cruise

The incredible Huangpu River serves as Shanghai’s shipping artery both to the East China Sea and to the mouth of the Yangtze River. A spectacular cruise along the Huangpu River gives visitors the opportunity to admire many of Shanghai’s beautiful skyline and famous sites including; the People’s Hero Monument, the Bund, the Oriental Pearl Tower, the bustling International Passenger Station of Shanghai Harbor, the docks and the Wu Song ancient gun fort relics.

ShanghaiAncient water town with lunch tour

Travel to an ancient water town nestled within the ultra-modern city of Shanghai. Here, you will step back in time as you explore the town with a history of over 1,700 years. You will discover its historic bridges, bubbling streams, rivers, willow trees and traditional courtyards and houses. After exploring the city you will enjoy a delicious lunch before continuing your tour.
