Days 1-4: Beijing
Uncover the treasures of Beijing, from Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City to the monumental Great Wall, built to protect China from the 'barbarians' of the north. Work off those delicious Peking duck pancakes and wander through the noisy, pungent markets. Take an individual tour of ancient Hutongs or hire a bicycle, joining the locals pedaling around the city. In the evening, why not attend a Beijing opera performance and witness the subtle beauty of this unique art form - one of China's cultural treasures.

Days 5-7: Xi’an
Facing east in battle formation, the army of Terracotta Warriors stand guard over the treasures of the First Emperor. This ancient city has been an important cultural centre for thousands of years and the legacy of its position is visible in the cities’ many temples, museums and galleries. There is time to visit the Bell and Drum towers, explore the Muslim Quarter and enjoy great city views from the Big Goose Pagoda, an impressive structure built to house Buddhist scriptures. Xi'an also boasts many wonderful examples of traditional and modern architecture, so why not take a stroll before ending the day with a scrumptious dumpling banquet.

Days 8-9: Chengdu
Home to wonderfully spicy Sichuan cuisine, Chengdu also boasts traditional teahouses and markets. Visit the Giant Panda Breeding Research Base to witness the conservation efforts being made to save this endangered species.

Days 10-12: Yangshuo
The dramatic countryside surrounding Yangshuo is best seen on an optional cruise down the Li River. Float past limestone monoliths, rice paddies, and water buffaloes drinking at the river's edge. For those feeling active, why not jump on a bike and explore the splendid green surrounds and nearby villages or perhaps participate in a peaceful tai chi session. Enjoy a guided walk through a local market before visiting a converted country house to learn to cook local specialties.

Days 13-14: Hong Kong
Discover vibrant Hong Kong, a city that's characterized by culture and glamour. Shop up a storm at Temple Street and Stanley Market, get absorbed in the city's many museums or cruise across Victoria Harbor aboard the Star Ferry.

ParryMattTravel.com was formed to work with Daniel Huang of Truly China Travel. I traveled with him this year in the Guilin/Yangshuo area of Guangxi Province and we decided that we liked working together. He has good English skills and is an experienced travel manager. I have traveled about 29 countries over the past twenty years and I enjoyed both the beauty of that area of China and the hospitality of Daniel and Sonny.
