Over View

To truly understand China, youve got to get out and meet it on its own terms, which is exactly what this 12-day trip through the countrys northern reaches delivers. Up here, youll get to the big stuff (the Great Wall, Xians Terracotta Army, Beijing) and lesser-known treasures that only the hardiest of travellers ever get to see: village life in Inner Mongolia, the amazing Yungang Buddha Caves, and the nearly 3,000-year-old city of Pingyao, to name just a few.
