The north of China has long been the country's seat of power, and this tour takes in many of the major historical sites between Xi'an and the capital, from the life-size Terracotta Army to Beijing's Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City, and of course the Great Wall of China, one of the New Seven Wonders of the World, where we'll walk along the Jinshanling section. We'll also explore the ancient walled city of Pingyao, the Yungang Grottoes and Hanging Monastery near Datong, the city of Chengde, and the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Wutai Shan, one of China's four Sacred Buddhist mountains.
