Changsha / Shaoshan / Changsha (B, L)

Transfer via: Private Vehicle on our arrangement
Sightseeing: Water-dripping Cave, Memorial Hall of Mao Zedong and Mao Zedong's former house

After breakfast, we will drive to Shaoshan, the hometown of Chairman Mao.

First we will have a visit to Dishuidong Cave (Water-dripping Cave), About 3 km northwest of the village, it is a very popular destination, possibly because of the fact that former leader-Mao spent 11 days here in the early days of the Cultural Revolution Years (1966-76), contemplating the unknown. Combining the spirit of nature and civilization of man, this scenic spot attracts tourists from home and abroad.

Visit the Memorial Hall of Mao Zedong and Mao Zedong's former house. The Memorial Hall exhibits there include 100 pieces of Mao Zedong's manuscripts and 72 items of Mao's personal belongings. The former house is a very common farmhouse built with mud bricks and tiles, exhibiting Mao Zedong's family photo, daily household utensils, various dead stocks and photos and materials displaying Mao Zedong's engagement in the revolutionary activities, and the shoulder poles, pails and hoes used by Mao Zedong during his boyhood. The furnishings in the rooms are all collocated in accord with the original appearance as Mao Zedong lived here.

Later afternoon, you will be transferred back to Changsha.

Sightseeing: Yuelu academy, Hunan Provincial Museum

In the third day of the trip, you will visit the hidden culture, charm and history of Hunan in Changsha.

We will first have a visit to the Yuelu Academy. It was the most important of all the four academies of the Song as well as China's earliest government-funded institution of higher learning. The buildings extant on the premises are mostly a Qing legacy. Since the Song many famous scholars had lectured and studied in this academy.

Then we continue visit Hunan Provincial Museum. First built in 1951, the museum was opened to the public in July 1974. It has gathered together most curios unearthed in Hunan Province, unfolding the cultural development of Hunan Province throughout thousands of years.

After the tours, we will drive to Zhangjiajie.

Day 4 Zhangjiajie (B, L)

Sightseeing: Yuanjiajie Scenic Area, Tianzi Mountain

In the morning we take a gentle hike through the Yuanjiajie Scenic Area. Located at the north of the park, Yuanjiajie is a mesa that overlooks a deep valley and a chain of mountain peaks. Later in the morning we transfer to the Tianzi Mountain and have fun enjoying lunch at the peak. The time after lunch is for leisurely exploration around the peak, take photo shots.

Sightseeing: Huangshizhai, Jinbian Brook Scenic Areas

After breakfast we walk into the national park and hike through the beautiful scenic spots like the South Heavenly Gate and the Star-gazing Platform. Located in the west of the park, at 1,200 meters above sea level, Huangshizhai is the park's largest viewing terrace. Photograph the beautiful landscape. Explore Jinbian Brook in the afternoon, along which we stroll with chirping birds and singing cicadas.

Built during the Ming dynasty (1622 AD) with a length of 382km, it was a major ancient project that served as a wall defending against Miao tribe uprisings. It also had the effect of cutting off the exchange of trade and culture between the Han nationality and Miao tribe.

It was great and the guide was tremendous!

Hi Sandy,


It was great and the guide was tremendous.  I had a great time in Kaifeng. I think we have another tour coming up quickly on the 26th to Luoyang.  :)

It was a good trip.  The sites were very interesting and unique.

It was a good trip.  The sites were very interesting and unique.   The Dazu museum was very interesting since did not know there were so many of the grottoes in China and other countries as well. We didn’t take lunch but asked rather to see another grotto.  Would recommend going to the small grotto and then the larger one and then museum in that order.

Overall we loved our tours. Zhangjiajie was fantastic! Our tour was really great and we would recommend it. Beijing - our guide was fantastic! So full of facts, great English and overall fantastic. Overall we have found dealing with your company a very pleasant experience, and we like the individualised aspect of it.

Hi Sandy,

Nice to hear from you. Overall we loved our tours. Zhangjiajie was fantastic! Our tour was really great and we would recommend it. Our tour guide was really lovely in zhangjiajie, but her English was less than perfect, but overall that didn’t hinder anything.

Beijing - our guide was fantastic! So full of facts, great English and overall fantastic. Forrest was his name. Seeing the wall was amazing!!!

Overall we have found dealing with your company a very pleasant experience, and we like the individualised aspect of it.

I hope you find this helpful, and thank you for your help,

Thanks

I want to to thank you again for your good services. Everything worked out as expected ––or better! Getting the gaotie tickets was easy, and the two excursions were most enjoyable.

Dear Sandy,

now that we have returned home after a marvellous trip through China, I want to to thank you again for your good services.

Everything worked out as expected –– or better! Getting the gaotie tickets was easy, and the two excursions were most enjoyable. In particular, the guide at Huangshan – I called her ciao Xue (Little Snow) – was attentive and intelligent, great company!


After the hike up and down on Huangshan, we felt great: we can still do that at our age in the high seventies!


Hakka Country


Finally, it was a pleasant surprise to get your call. That was unexpected, but much appreciated.

Keep selling China to the world!

Best wishes

Wolfgang

Comment on our service from Martin McMulkin, UK

You had the best price and you have provided us with a really good service in the past. I am sure to contact you in the future whenever we plan trips around China.

Hello Sandy,


Please find the answers below.


1. What do you think of our guide service?

The guide was really good. Gave us interesting information about the places but did not talk too much.


2. What do you think of our driver service?

The driver was very good, we felt safe. The only problem was that the seats in the van could not be adjusted and so I had to stay in the reclined position, this was OK because most of the journeys were quite short.


3. Which meal makes you memorable? Please name the reason why you like or dislike it?

The lunch buffet at the hotel on the mountain was the best. Breakfast was good everywhere. It was difficult to find food we all liked for dinner, in Huangshan City.


4. Could you please advise why you choose us to be your tour operator for your holiday?

You had the best price and you have provided us with a really good service in the past.


5. Which part of sightseeing was the most memorable for you?

Walking on the trails up Huangshan.


Thank you again Sandy. I will do the review for Trip Advisor.

I am sure to contact you in the future whenever we plan trips around China.

Best Regards

Martin
