4 Day Yellow Mountain Trip
Travelling in China as a foreigner during covid is not easy, but China Highlights in general and Tony in particular made it easy and stress free, and meant I could focus on the natural beauty and rich history of this amazing country.more

5-Day Dynamic Huangshan Tour is a must!
My husband and I were in awe of the natural beauty of the Yellow Mountain. Our guide Phillip Tong, with China Highlights, gave us an exceptional experience at our pace. (As an older couple this was greatly appreciated.) He shared his vast knowledge of history and cultural significance as we trekked over and around the mountain, touring Bishan, and Hongcun. We concluded our trip by making fish lanterns. China Highlights has once again provided us with great memories.more

I did a 4 day trekking in the Yellow…
I did a 4 day trekking in the Yellow Mountains with China Highlights and it was even more stunning than I thought it would be. Spend two nights in the mountains and one in Huangshan, totally worth is. This is a place you must visit and according to my guide every season had it’s own beauty. I will definitely come back! Coco planned the whole trip according to my wishes and Tony was a perfect guide being very knowledgeable and supportive. If you don’t have 4 days I’m sure a three, or even two, day trip will be very nice as well!more

We had a memorable experience hiking
We had a memorable experience hiking the Yellow Mountain in Huangshan. Our trip was complicated by the typhoon that hit the area and we had to have a flexible itinerary, China Highlights helped with this. Once we arrived, Tony was very helpful & was able to tailor the experience for the different fitness levels in the group.more

We reached Xi’an by G436 bullet train from Beijing. Ricky greeted us at the station with a big smile and we were off to a memorable adventure. On the way to the Terracota Warriors site, Rocky briefed us on Xi’an history. We learnt about its past as the first capital of unified China under the Qin emperor. We peppered him with questions about the people, culture and economy. At the Terracota Warriors site, we had a quick lunch at a KFC and then headed for the exhibit. Rocky told us about how farmers found the Terracota pieces while digging a well in 1974. There are three pits and a chariots museum at the site now. We toured pits 1, 3 and 2 before we went into the museum. The sight of the Terracota Warriors is something to behold .. Rocky regaled us with stories about the Emperor and how he had artisans from all over China build the army for him. We headed into the city for our night stay at the Sheraton Xi’an. Next day, we started our day at the Ancient Wall and the visited the Shaanxi History Museum where Ricky showed us precious relics and antiques from 1.6million years to present times. It was fascinating to see the artifacts from Zhou, Qin, Tung dynasties. We then visited the Great Wild Goose Pagoda, built at the direction of Huan Tsang, the famous 7th century traveller and scholar who went to India and brought back precious scriptures and relics. The Buddha temple is a tranquil site to visit and the artifacts fascinating. We had lunch at a nearby Ganges restaurant .. sumptuous Indian meal! We then went to the Muslim Quarter to see the Great Mosque, taste some local snacks and shop for souvenirs. Overall, a fantastic and memorable visit to Xi’an. Rocky is a gem of a person and made us feel like his family. We couldn’t have dreamt of finding a better guide. He also lived in Tibet for 10yrs so we are looking forward to touring Tibet with him in the future. Thank you China Highlights for a memorable visit to Xi’an. --Jai Mitra，Tampa, Floridamore
