Tour Overview

Behold The Eighth Miracle of the World; The Terracotta Warriors, and ponder its mysteries while visiting the influential country of China with Yampu! Thousands of individual, and uniquely crafted, clay warriors stand guarding the tomb of China’s first Emperor for all eternity. These detailed creations are believed to have been created to accompany Qin Shi Huang Di, the First Emperor of Qin, into the afterlife to provide protection along his journey. Witness these magnificent pieces of work while exploring the city of Xi’an, just after taking on the momentous Chinese capital, Beijing. Both cities provide a deep sense of connection to the area’s historic roots as well as its potential in future developments.
Walk along the Great Wall while admiring its fascinating engineering and ingenuity, just before indulging in some of the finest Chinese Cuisine, including the famous and succulent Peking Duck. Absorb the history of both Tianan Men Square and the Forbidden City while exploring Beijing’s most influential points of interest just before a visit to the Summer Palace, a former retreat for the imperial family with its range of striking views of Kunming Lake. With such divine and pristine destinations, incredible food and immense history, China is the destination that cannot be missed.
