Day 1 Yinchuan Arrival
Transfer via: Flight on your own arrangement
Arrival in Yinchuan City of Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region, you will be met by our local tour guide and then be transferred to hotel. Free at leisure the rest of the day.
Day 2 Yinchuan (B, L)
Sightseeing: Sand Lake, Western Xia Film and Television City, Western Xia Mausoleum
Morning transfer to the Sand Lake for relaxation. This lake covers more than 80 square kilometers and the area is composed of sands, water and hills.
Afterwards, you will visit the Oriental Pyramid - Western Xia Mausoleum. The mausoleum are a well-known travel site. It is located at the eastern foot of Helan Mountain, close to Yinchuan City in Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region, measuring 10 kilometers north to south, 4 kilometers east to west; the mausoleum contains the tombs of emperors of the Western Xia. There are eight tumuli and over 70 annex tombs in this area.
Then visit the Western Xia Film and Television City, where 60 movies have been made since the 1980s. China West Film Studio, known as the Western Film and Television City, is located in the northwest of Yinchuan City. Since the 1980s more than eighty movies have been filmed in the China West Film Studio. China West Film Studio is the very best choice of location base to shoot Western China and Ancient China theme movies' outdoor scene...
Then, we will drive back to Yinchuan.
Day 3 Yinchuan / Zhongwei (B, L)
Transfer via: Private vehicle on our arrangement
Sightseeing: 108 Pagodas, Shapotou Scenic Spot
On the way to Zhongwei, visit 108 Pagodas. Enjoy the beautiful Shapotou Scenic Spot in Zhongwei County. Shapotou, a city lying in southeast Tengger Desert, is the transition band of Tengger Desert and Grassland. It is listed as one of China's 10 most beautiful scenic spots in 2004. What makes Shapotou distinguished is that it's a desert, but you can also see green land while enjoying the fantastic view of the golden sand sea on a camel. Riding camels through the Tengger Desert is no doubt a good choice for travelers. You'll feel as if you are a native nomad and bathe in the casual and romantic atmosphere. If you'd like something more exciting, try the sand rafting. Sitting on the sand raft and slipping from the top of the desert slope, which is about 100 meters high, will no doubt bring you the most unparallel experience in the world. Because of the special geographical environment and geological structure, the bottom of the sand raft will produce a strange sound called "golden sands striking the bell" by local people.
Tonight we will camp in desert.
Day 4 Zhongwei / Yinchuan (B, L)
Transfer via: Private vehicle on our arrangement
Sightseeing: Nanguan Mosque, Ningxia Museum, Haibao Pagoda
After breakfast, we will return to Yinchuan, visit Nanguan Mosque. The Nanguan Mosque is one of the largest mosques in the Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region in North China. The Nanguan Mosque has a history of hundreds of years. It was destroyed by wars several times. Since 1949, with the help of the government, it has undergone several repairs. In 1981, the Muslims in Ningxia area raised funds for the reconstruction. The mosque covers an area of about 10,100 square meters, and the construction area is more than 2,000 square meters. The main hall is 26 meters high. The second floor of the main hall can accommodate 1,300 people. There are bathrooms, worship halls, women's worship halls, the imam's dorm, and reception rooms, etc., in the first floor. There is one large and four small domes on the top of the main hall. Two minarets of 30 meters high stand on both sides of the main hall, and a fountain with 15 meters in diameter in the center of the courtyard. The whole building complex has compact layout, magnificent decorations.
Then we will move on to Ningxia Museum. Housed in Chengtian Temple in the old part of Yinchuan, the museum has a collection of nearly 10,000 cultural artifacts. The 1,000 objects on display are of high historical and cultural value.
Finally, we will visit Haibao Pagoda. A 53.9-metre-high 11-floor pavilion like brick structure with a history of 1,500 years, HaibaoPagoda is the city emblem of Yinchuan. A wooden stairway inside the pagoda conducts to the 9th floor for a look at the city's landscape.

Thank your for all your organizing and help with our trip. Cici in Beijing, Wendy in Xian and Lee in Quilin were all fantastic tour guides. It was wonderful to see Lee again. She was our guide in 2014 when we visited Guilin and Yangshuo. Your agency helped us with our trip that time too.
Thanks for the lovely tea cups - they will always be reminders of a special time our family had on our holiday in China.
If there are any websites you would like us to post reviews, we will be happy to do so.
My children said "It was a trip of a lifetime!" and we want to thank you for helping it go so well!

My young son felt at home with her, and she went out of her way to take care of him and entertain him during the trip. She was also very knowledgeable about most things that we had questions about. We were very satisfied with the arrangements.
I've attached a few photos of us having a great time. We were lucky to experience good weather in Nanjing as well during our travels, with no rain and warm temperatures.
Will definitely contact you when we next return to China.

Client's information: Martin McMulkin, UK
1. Guide was excellent, helpful, informative but not intrusive.
2. Driver was very good, did not drive too fast or zig-zag along the roads. Only problem was that the seatbelt in the van did not work properly.
3. We chose your company as you gave us the best price by a big margin. Lots of companies seem to quote ridiculous prices for non-Chinese travelers.
Thank you very much and if we plan to visit somewhere unusual like this again I will get in touch with your company.
