Classic Shanghai to Hong Kong Adventure
SAVE UP TO 20% on this tour

Ultramodern and resolutely traditional, modern China is a land with one foot in the present and the other striding into the future. This eight-day adventure connects them both, beginning with Shanghais sleek skyscrapered skyline and a train to the limestone karsts of Guilin. Next, youll strap on your boots and hike into the countryside around Longji to wander the picturesque rice paddies. (Depending on the season, you may even get to help out with the harvest.) Finally, youll return to modern times with a two-day stint in always-on Hong Kong. Nature and modernity, in perfect balance.
