Many people say Xi’an represents the past, Beijing, the present, and Shanghai, the future of China. As the most famous metropolitan and China’s economic center, it is the most worth-visiting city among all the Chinese cities.
Usually, we suggest our clients stay 3-4 nights in the city one day visiting the city’s highlights such as Yuyuan Garden, Longhua Temple or Jade Buddha Temple, French Concession, The Bund, one of the famous skyscrapers; the second day, visiting one of the water towns nearby, such as Suzhou, Zhujiajiao, Zhouzhuang, Wuzhen, etc.; clients can also take High-Speed train day tour to visit Hangzhou.
