This itinerary, ideal for repeat travelers to China, takes in the dramatic scenery and rich culture of more remote regions. Begin with in-depth private touring of Beijing, China’s centuries-old capital. Tour imperial masterpieces such as the Forbidden City, the Temple of Heaven and the Summer Palace. Travel by rickshaw down the narrow hutongs (lanes) of a traditional residential neighborhood. See lesser-known temples, and venture to a little-visited hilltop for panoramic views over the rooftops of the Forbidden City. Dine on traditional specialties at favorite family-run restaurants, and enjoy reservations at private clubs and Beijing’s most acclaimed restaurants. Visit markets specializing in pearls, silk, food and furniture, and, if desired, explore new art gallery districts that showcase the city’s burgeoning contemporary art scene. There will also be a day at leisure for independent exploration or excursions to nearby Ming Tombs or the Great Wall.

Next, fly to Guilin, home to some of China's most breathtaking scenery. Cruise the Li River to Yangshuo— China’s most beautiful river journey—passing through a storied landscape of limestone peaks and rice paddies. From Yangshuo, take a motorized rickshaw tour along the backroads of this picturesque region, exploring local villages with your private guide and driver.

Continue to Kunming, the ‘City of Eternal Spring’ and gateway to the culturally diverse southwestern province of Yunnan; Chinese, Tibetan, Laotian, Burmese, Vietnamese, Indian and local hill tribe minorities converge here. Spend several days visiting some of China's most impressive small villages, markets, temples and monasteries around the foothill towns of Dali and Lijiang.

Conclude in Shanghai and experience the unbridled energy of China’s most stylish and modern city. During private touring, learn about Shanghai’s history through the architecture of the Bund, the French Concession, Pudong and other districts. Tour some of China’s best museums, including the Shanghai Museum. Your guide will also take you to Shanghai’s old town to sample dumplings and sweets, and have tea at the city’s oldest teahouse. Also visit up-and-coming neighborhoods filled with art galleries, design shops and stylish new restaurants.
