Travel from Hong Kong to Chengdu on this semi-independent adventure meeting the iconic panda and cruising the Yulong River in Yangshuo.
Day 1: Hong Kong to Yangshuo
Welcome to China! Meet the group and tour leader early this morning for an excursion to Victoria Peak for incredible panoramic views and a ride on the 120-year-old funicular railway. This afternoon we board a bullet train to Guilin in mainland China with an onward transfer to Yangshuo. The rest of the evening is at leisure. Overnight Yangshuo.
Days 2-4: Yangshuo
We start our day with a bike ride before cruising down the Yulong River on the famous bamboo rafts, soaking up the spectacular views. The remainder of the day is at leisure. Days 3 and 4 offer plenty of free time for optional activities including kayaking, rock climbing and a visit to underground mud-baths. Overnight Yangshuo.
Day 5: Yangshuo to Chengdu
After a leisurely morning we leave beautiful Yangshuo and our tour leader behind to board the night train to Chengdu, the capital of the Sichuan province and home to the largest and best-known Panda breeding and research centre. Overnight on sleeper train.
Days 6-7: Chengdu Pandas
This morning we arrive in Chengdu where we’ll meet our local tour guide and head to our accommodation. The remainder of the day is at leisure – take a walk around the Tibetan quarter and try some of the spicy delicacies at a local restaurant. On day 7 we visit the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding to come face-to-face with China’s most iconic mammal. Watch as they eat their bamboo breakfast and visit the panda nursery for a glimpse of baby pandas at their cutest!
