The deal
China is home to 5,000 years of civilization, fascinating cultural fusion, and spices unfamiliar to the Westerner’s palate. Now is a great time to explore this region of the world with China Spree’s knock-out bargain on their 10-Day Golden Triangle Tour which is priced from just $888 — that’s less than $100 per day!

The fast-paced itinerary covers stops at all the must-see historical sites of Beijing, Xian, and Shanghai. Guests will first visit Beijing and have ample time to see the famous Great Wall of China and the Forbidden City.

Next, guests will board the train to Xian, where they can visit the First Emperor’s Army of Terracotta Warriors. The final destination of this China expedition is the ever-bustling cosmopolitan center of Shanghai, where visitors will spend two full days taking in exceptional sights and shopping at world-class stores.

The package includes round-trip airfare, guided tours (with admission to popular attractions), intra-China transport, accommodations in 4-star hotels, eight American buffet breakfasts, and five Chinese lunches.

The $888 price is for departures from San Francisco throughout January and February, with increased rates in March. For departures from New York City, add $300.

The dollars
Rates are per person and based on double occupancy. Taxes and fees are additional.

The catch
Temperatures are chilly in these parts of China during the months of January and February. Highs in Beijing (which is where you’ll spend half your trip) only climb into the mid and upper 30s.
