NEW UPDATES FOR 2019: From 1st January 2019 this trip will become 12 days in length with high-speed day trains replacing overnight trains. Highlights/r/n
  • See the best known sights in Beijing, Shanghai and Xi'an, as well as visiting towns that may not be quite as iconic but perhaps even more intriguing because of it

  • Visit Shaolin Temple, the birthplace of Kung Fu
  • By taking two sleeper trains, you'll maximise your time in your destinations, get a chance to interact with locals and see some fascinating landscapes
  • Experience the enchanting ambience and mountain scenery of Xiahe. This Tibetan pilgrimage town and its Labrang Monastery is the stuff of legend
