The Heart of China

China - The name alone makes you want to get packing. It's going places, so jump aboard, go along for the ride and see where it's headed. Its modern face is dazzling, but China is no one-trick pony. The world's oldest continuous civilization isn't all smoked glass and brushed aluminium and while you won't be tripping over artifacts – three decades of round-the-clock development and rash town planning have taken their toll – rich seams of antiquity await. Serve it all up according to taste: collapsing sections of the Great Wall, temple-topped mountains, villages that time forgot, languorous water towns and sublime Buddhist grottoes. Pack a well-made pair of travelling shoes and remember the words of Lao Tzu: 'a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step'.

What to Pack

  • This was my fifth trip with WOW in under 2 years and my first international one, so I had a lot of expectations and they were almost all met and sometimes even exceeded. And how could I ever forget getting to see the Pandas close up. I consider them my spirit animal - try to move for like a second and if not possible then fall back down and rest a while... ha ha.... I only wish they allowed people to hug them but of course it's good for the Pandas that they don't. I also absolutely enjoyed every meal on the trip and really relished the Chinese delicacies served up. Was so glad to have had the local fare... if only I could've managed the chopsticks... oh well there's always next time. This trip gave me a glance at a different way of life and has left me intrigued to explore more. Thank you WOW and thanks Shivangi for making my first international trip with you, what I consider a success and hope to take up more such trips with you guys.

Customized Trip
  • What does twin share price mean?

    Twin share price is the price mentioned against a package and it refers to the cost per head for a double sharing accommodation. If you'd like to upgrade to Single Occupancy, please select this at the time of checkout
  • Regarding the hotels, what does OR SIMILAR refer to?

    OR SIMILAR means that the hotel booked might be different from the hotel mentioned in the itinerary. 90% of the time we book the hotel that’s mentioned, but under few situations it might differ due to on-the-ground factors. So we pick an alternate hotel, but always in the same class and area of the city.
  • Why don't you include flights in the Package cost?

    Since our wanderers are located a variety of locations in India and outside India - it is impossible to include flights in the trip cost.
