Including the 2017 Chinese Grand Prix
Beijing, China’s capital, and Shanghai are probably the most dynamic cities in the world, whilst Xi’an is home to the famous Terracotta Warriors. This tour combines the highlights of China with the Chinese Grand Prix and a tour of the VW Car Factory & Museum in Shanghai.
Beijing - Inextricably linked to its glorious, notorious past, yet hurtling towards a power- charged future, Běijīng is one of China’s great cities. It is as complex as it is compelling, food is an obsession for the Chinese and the dazzling array of different dishes you’ll encounter in Běijīng reflects the sheer joy locals take in eating. There are six Unesco world heritage sites in this city alone, at its heart is the magnificent Forbidden City, a royal palace on a scale like no other and, to cap it all, the awe-inspiring Great Wall of China snakes its way across the hills just north of city.
Xi’an - Located in central China, Xi’an records the changes of the country just like a living history book. Called Chang’an (meaning the eternal city) in ancient times, it is one of the birthplaces of the ancient Chinese civilization in the Yellow River Basin area. As the eastern terminal of the Silk Road and the site of the famous Terracotta Warriors of the Qin Dynasty, the city has won a reputation all over the world.
Shanghai - Situated on the estuary of Yangtze River, Shanghai serves as the most influential economic and financial center in Eastern China. It is also a popular destination for visitors to sense the pulsating development of the country. New skyscrapers and old Shikumen together draw the skyline of the city. Western customs and Chinese traditions intertwined and formed the city’s culture, making a visitor’s stay truly memorable. The Chinese F1
Grand Prix is held at the Shanghai International Circuit, Jiading, Shanghai, designed by Hermann Tilke. When completed in 2004, it was the most expensive Formula One circuit facility, costing $240 million.
