- Amazing trip. Seeing the real China. The tourist sites; Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square, Terracotta Warriors and Panda Sanctuary were all amazing. Really enjoyed the Yanksee River Cruise and came at the right time in the trip. Very relaxing. Highlight for us was the cycle ride in Yangzhou through the countryside and the karst mountains, walk in the mountains through the rice fields along with the Terracotta Warriors and Panda Sanctuary. We did the Opera in Chengdu and also the Red Impression show in Yangshou which was very impressive. Never seen anything like this show using the backdrop of the karst mountains and lake. There is a problem with the shows / opera though. The Chinese do not stop talking, even through the show which was very annoying. This trip can be hard at times with the long train journeys with bunks with not much space to sit.
