Day 4 After breakfast at the hotel, explore more Beijing sites with your guide. No visit would be complete without an excursion to see the Great Wall, truly one of the greatest feats of human engineering, stretching nearly 4,000 miles long. Begun in the 7th-century BC, final additions were completed in 16th-century AD and originally built to keep out invaders of the north. Lunch is included during the tour. You'll also see Mingshisan Ling, or Ming Tombs, a final resting place for thirteen Emperors of the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644 AD). Built into Beijing's scenic foothills, splendidly carved stone animals dramatically line the road on your approach. Tonight, experience an authentic Beijing treat. Enjoy a traditional Peking Duck Dinner. Day 5 In the morning, tour a masterpiece of Ming architecture, the Tiantan, or Temple of Heaven, built for Imperial sacrifices conducted during the first lunar month and on winter solstice. After lunch, transfer to the airport for your flight to Xi'an, which was an ancient capital of China for eleven dynasties and the starting point of the famed Silk Road. The cradle of Chinese civilization and inhabited since before the Neolithic era, Xi'an lies 35 miles west of the confluence of the Wei and Yellow rivers. Transfer to your hotel. Dinner tonight is on your own. Day 6 Today, embark on a full-day tour of the Provincial Museum, displaying more than 2,000 ancient artifacts reflecting the evolution of Chinese civilization. Visit the amazing underground tomb of Emperor Qin Shi Huang; guarded by more than 7,000 life-size terracotta warriors and horses, the tomb is one of the world's greatest archaeological treasures. Later in the evening, enjoy a memorable Tang Dynasty Dinner and Show. Overnight in Xi’an. Day 7 Fly to Shanghai, China's largest city and former “Paris of the East.” Your Club ABC Tours local guide will meet you at the airport and transfer you to your hotel.
