At a Glance

China — a land where ancient emperors once built grand and lavish palaces, where a Great Wall spans more than 5,000 miles across rugged mountains, and where the rare Giant Panda lives in its natural habitat. Together learn about this ever-changing country as you travel from Shanghai to Beijing, stopping to explore rural villages amidst terraced fields and green karst mountains. View the country’s varied landscapes from China's comfortable high speed bullet trains and meet farmers and city folk as you learn about life in the world’s longest continuous civilization.
