Fine Rice Wine Tasting in a Hidden Hutong
Duration: 1 hour
- An authentic and pleasant tasting experience.
- Discover the secrets of Chinese rice wine.
- Relax and have fun, this is like seasoning for your trip.
With a much softer and sweeter flavor than Chinese Baijiu, rice wine is widely appreciated by Chinese people. In just the same way that wine tasting is a must when visiting Bordeaux, trying rice wine when visiting China is a great way to relax and experience a beloved local drink.
Located in a hidden hutong, which is a traditional Chinese alleyway, Nuoyan Rice Wine House offers a pleasant atmosphere where travelers can taste traditional rice wine.
Nuoyan in Chinese means 'promise' and the wine house got its name because of a promise made by the brewer to his girlfriend. You will be served five to six different flavors of rice wine. This experience is perfect for couples who can sip wine together while listening to the brewer's love story. By the end of this experience, you may have forgotten that you are a tourist in this city.
One Hour Spa Session at the 5-Star Sunrise On the Bund Hotel
Duration: 1 hour
- A head-to-toe treatment revitalizes your muscles.
- An excellent spa service with a reasonable price.
- Relax and reward yourself.
Located in the heart of the North Bund, the 5-star Sunrise On the Bund hotel has both an old Shanghai and European style. Its spa service is one of the best in Shanghai and it is good value for money.
Usually, Shanghai is the last leg of your China tour so put down your backpack, relax, and enjoy some leisure time at the L Spa in the hotel. A 1 hour Imperial Signature Massage revitalizes your muscles while the unique Energy Crystal Steam Room and Japanese-style sauna make you feel refreshed and full of energy.
It is a pleasant reward for yourself after about 10 days of touring in China. Based on our good business relationship, China Highlights gets a good price for the spa.

Adorable trip to Beijing with China Highlights
Such an amazing time spent together with my husband and our guide Nancy in Beijing. We recommend booking the tour with China Highlights as that was an incredibly smart idea and trip we have had over past few days. Visiting the Great Wall of China, the Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City, Temple of Heaven etc., getting more close to the history of China, having the delicious food - that was all done by the CH. We won’t be having such wonderful time without you guys. Still being so amazed and impressed by the historical progress of the country. Much appreciated for your support, help and time, Dear Nancy and China Highlights. Kind Regards, Kenneth&Assel Gillanmore

Great Wall Day Trip with Ivy
She answered our questions thoroughly and she also provided us with recommendations for food and things to see outside of our Great Wall day trip. The driver was also a very safe driver and made it a comfortable drive from the city center. We hope to use China Highlights again for future trips. And if you’re in Beijing, you can request for Ivy as your guide.more

Fantastic Beijing Tour with Tour Guide - Angela
Had a great time visiting Beijing over Chinese New Year! The city was quiet, but that made it easier to see everything that we wanted to. Our tour guide, Angela, was very knowledgeable and friendly. We found a local brewery, Slow Boat, that we went to twice it was so good. Amazing beer and best burger of my life! We can't wait to book another trip with China Highlights.more

Beautiful experience in Beijing
The Forbidden City was a highlight of the tour. With Christina's knowledgeable and engaging commentary, we learned about the history of the imperial palace and its role as the center of Chinese politics for over 500 years. The complex is massive, and it was impressive to see the intricate details of the architecture and gardens.more
