8 Moons of China, 8 Days from $995*

HIGHLIGHTS: Beijing - Xian - Shanghai

3 wise Chinese proverbs (and one that made us laugh):
- He who strikes the first blow admits he's lost the argument.
- War does not determine who is right, war determines who is left.
- Cheap things are not good, good things are not cheap.
- Man who streaks is unsuited for his work.

Day 1-3: Beijing - Great Wall
Go nuts and order your Peking Duck three ways. First the skin is carved and served in Chinese pancakes, next the carcass is chopped and cooked as a soup and then you finish up with a plate of perfectly cooked meat. Don't forget to grab your doggy bag (ducky bag?) of leftovers.

Day 4-5: Xian
Stu says, "On the way to the Terracotta Warriors there's a giant Sphinx. But it's actually a gift shop for Terracotta Warriors. That helps sum up China's kookiness. It's great." Board a high-speed train to Xian, the capital of Shaanxi province. Enjoy time to relax and to wander around this historical city. Perhaps visit the Muslim Quarter, with its Great Mosque and vast array of market stalls. Head out and explore the army of Terracotta Warriors. Board the overnight six-berth hard-sleeper class train to Shanghai.

Day 6-8: Shanghai
We've spent heaps of time training our local leaders to think outside the box and embrace the fun side of travel. On your last night, why not let them choose the restaurant. And if you're really brave, ask them to order you the craziest dish on the menu. On day 8 the trip ends in the morning in Shanghai. You can depart at any time.
