O: You are invited on an easy-paced journey to China.  Explore Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City, where the Emperors of the Ming and Qing Dynasties lived.  Walk the Great Wall, take a boat cruise on the Grand Canal of Hangzhou, and visit Suzhou's Silk factory. Set sail on the Yangtze River, enjoy the wonderful scene of deep and quiet gorges, and the magnificent peaks as if they were cut by axes and knives.  Take a shore excursion to the Shennong Stream, where you may see the ancient roads, coffins in precipice, and even some rare animals such as golden-haired monkeys.  We will also visit Xi'an's most important archeological site, where thousands of life-size terra-cotta warriors have been guarding the Emperor's burial site for over 2,000 years.  Discover the mile-long riverside embankment where foreign investors once held sway over Shanghai.
