The Great Wall of China - Ten Thousand Li Long Wall | Beijing

Be listed as one of New 7 Wonders of the World, the Great Wall is a must-visiting spot in any Beijing shore excursion. Mention about China, you can’t miss the iconic symbol Great Wall – also the longest wall in the world. This attraction is an awe-inspiring wonder with ancient defensive architecture. It lands over rugged hills and lush green huge grassland that creates wonderful scenery. The wall originally had the length of over 21,000 kilometers, along with the natural destructions and wars over 2300 years, now the length is only nearly 9,000 kilometers. The most famous section that attracts visitors is close to Beijing named as Badaling. The Wall is not a continuous line of side walls, circular walls, parallel walls, and some sections don’t have walls with high mountains or rivers serving as a barrier. To build this amazing wonder, around 800.000 people included soldiers, forcibly-recruited peasants, convicts, slaves, and even prisoners of war had to hard work under the tough pressure of government.

The Terracotta Army | Xi’an - Emperor Qin’s Buried Battalions

The Terracotta Army is considered as one of the greatest archaeological sites of the 20th century and is an essential part of Qin Shi Huang tomb complex – the largest ancient imperial one in the world. The Army was praised as the Eighth Wonder of the World that no one can claim to have a trip to China without a visit to these terracotta figures. Were built over 2,200 years ago, a plenty of statues have been destroyed by being weathered and bacteria damaged. However, archaeologists still found over 8,000 real-size statues including soldiers, chariots, and horses. Surprisingly, no two statues are exactly alike, as if they are built following thousands of real objects! To create this miracle, over 700,000 laborers had to work for 40 years without a rest. Then when they finished, they had been buried alive to keep the secret about Emperor Qin’s Tomb pretending from thieves and enemies.

The Forbidden City - The Imperial Palace | Beijing

Always is in the top 5 most important palaces of all time in the world, the Forbidden City was a place where ordinary people were prohibited from entry. In the heart of capital Beijing, the palace is the best-preserved heritage sites in China, and the largest ancient palace in the whole world with the size is twice as the Vatican, and thrice as the Kremlin of Russian. Served as the imperial palace of Ming and Qing Dynasty for 560 years with 24 Emperors lived here, the Forbidden City has exactly 9,999 rooms decorated with ancient artifacts and delicate items. That’s the reason why the palace becomes a large cultural museum opening for visitors nowadays. The best time to visit this palace is in spring and fall when the weather is pleasant. In spring, come with occasional rain, the mild temperature is a good condition for flowers blooming. While in fall, the weather is not too hot but not too cold and dry enough for a sightseeing tour.

The Bund | Shanghai

No Shanghai shore excursion excludes a visit to the Bund – the most recognizable symbols of the city. Lost in a living museum of the 1800s colonial-style with an endless stretch of waterfront spreading along with the poetry Huangpu River in the east and a line of 52 buildings designed in different architectural styles including Gothic, neoclassical, and even baroque in the west. This charming area can also be tasted with a cruise along Huangpu River. A night cruise is highly recommended when the Bund is lighted up and becomes a stunning showcase of things used to be considered as a distinctive contrast between light, historical architecture, and modern life.

Zhujiajiao Water Town | Shanghai

Your Shanghai shore trips will be more interesting with a visit to the Zhujiajiao Water Town. About 50 kilometers from the Bund, the town is the second Venice but with ancient Chinese style. Zhujiajiao was a trading area which was used to ferry goods along by little boats through 36 ancient bridges to traditional warehouses on the side of the canals. Nowadays, the warehouses transform into restaurants, bars, and coffee shops. Strolling along the street to enjoy the peaceful atmosphere brought by the downtown. Visit the Kezhi Yuan including the main hall, a garden, and the beautiful man-made hill, then take a walk to Fangsheng Bridge - the largest stone arch bridge in Shanghai or hop on a cruise go through under the bridge to catch the overview of this fantastic stone structure.

Chen Ancestral Shrine | Guangzhou

Not only well-known as the paradise of shopping, Guangzhou also has many cultural values. If you are a cultural explorer, the Chen Ancestral Shrine will best suit with a Guangzhou shore excursion. Was built just in the 1890s, the Shrine also had the name of Chen Clan Academy where trained for the Confucian Imperial Examinations, and now is called Guangdong Folk Art Museum. There is a surprising fact that this Chinese-traditional-style shrine was built at the same time when buildings mushrooming in commercial areas with Western architectural style. The unique feature of the Chen Ancestral is that all intricate artworks were put into the roof that has 11 ceramic ridge crests that look like dragons lying on the surface of the stone handrails.
