Ultimate China on a Shoestring - Hong Kong to Hong Kong Adventure Tour

Asia

  • China
  • Hong Kong

Ancient villages or bustling metropolises, what will you see while touring China? We made sure this 24-day tour includes both (and then some), so you won't have to choose. Monumental sights like the Great Wall, Forbidden City, and an army of Terracotta Warriors can make China seem intimidating ' but with an expert CEO (Chief Experience Officer) leading the way, we'll wipe away those worries and leave you free to enjoy the ride. And between the panda breeding centre, bamboo rafting, beaches, historic sites, tai chi, and lively nightlife, it's not a ride you'll want to miss.

Explore scenic Yangshuo, Taste the spicy food Chengdu is known for, Visit the Great Wall, Spend the night in a traditional Hakka roundhouse, Wander the mystical Shaolin Monastery and Temple

Group Leader Description

All of our G Adventures group trips are accompanied by a G Adventures Chief Experience Officer (CEO) in China. The aim of the group leader is to take the hassle out of your travels and to help you have the best trip possible. They will provide information on the places you are travelling through, offer suggestions for things to do and see, recommend great local eating venues and introduce you to our local friends. While not being guides in the traditional sense you can expect them to have a broad general knowledge of the countries visited on the trip, including historical, cultural, religious and social aspects. We also use local guides where we think more specific knowledge will add to the enjoyment of the places we are visiting ' we think it's the best of both worlds.


Emergency Fund

Please also make sure you have access to at least an additional USD $200 (or equivalent) as an 'emergency' fund, to be used when circumstances outside our control (ex. a natural disaster) require a change to our planned route. This is a rare occurrence!


Solo Travellers

We believe solo travellers should not have to pay more to travel so our group trips are designed for shared accommodation and do not involve a single supplement. Single travellers joining group trips are paired in twin or multi
share accommodation with someone of the same sex for the duration of the trip. Some of our Independent trips are designed differently and solo travellers on these itineraries must pay the single trip price.


Spending Money

Every traveller is different and therefore spending money requirements will vary. Some travellers may drink more than others while other travellers like to purchase more souvenirs than most. Please consider your own spending habits when it comes to allowing for drinks, shopping and tipping. Please also remember the following specific recommendations when planning your trip.
