Get thee to China for the adventure of your life! Seriously though, these two weeks of the country’s big-ticket highlights (as well as some smaller, more personal ones) will have you missing this country for years to come. From massive and historical Beijing (hello Forbidden City!), central Xi’an (home of the awe-inspiring Terracotta Warriors), glittering Shanghai, pastorally picturesque Yangshuo, and eventually to the world-in-itself gobsmacking city of Hong Kong, this is your (super affordable) opportunity to get here with a whole group of new friends.
