We took a 9-day tour through 5 cities in China. Starting in Beijing, we then went to Xian, Wuxi, Suzhou, and Shanghai. Each region had its own unique personality, differing in food, dialect, and even the physical characteristics of the people. It was quite an experience to be in a country so different than ours.
Our itinerary was jam-packed with every day completely filled with activity. Although those 9 days were exhausting, we certainly were able to see a lot and greatly enjoyed the experience.
We vistited quite a few different cities and places: Beijing, Tiananmen Square, the Forbidden City, The Great Wall, Ming Tomb, Summer Palace, Xian, Silk Rug Factory, Jade Factory, Terra Cotta Soldier Factory, Terra Cotta soldiers, Huaqing Hot Springs, Chiang-Kai Shek’s residence, Shanghai, Yu Garden, Buddhist Temples, Silk Factory (blankets), and The Bund.
