Confucius once proclaimed “Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.” Monograms believes in making things simple for you—and that’s why we handle all the vacation details for you! On this 10-day vacation, we’ve arranged your hotel reservations, daily breakfast (plus two lunches), private guided sightseeing, and transfers from/to your hotels to/from the airports for all intra-vacation flights. To make your journey as comfortable and easy as possible, we also offer the services of a Local Host®, someone who will answer questions, offer suggestions, and help ensure your vacation runs smoothly in every city. Your Local Host will welcome you with a smile when you arrive and give you a set of materials to help you feel settled and familiar with each stop along the way, and help you personalize your vacation.</BR></BR>Your vacation begins the moment you arrive in Beijing, where we can escort you from the airport to your selected hotel and where your Local Host will greet you with a warm welcome. While in Beijing, we have arranged two private sightseeing tours with local experts for you. We’ll take you to the Great Wall, a must-see when you are in China. We’ve also arranged tours to Tian’anmen Square, the largest public square in the world, and the Forbidden City’s Imperial Palace, once the home of China’s great emperors. In Shanghai, we have arranged for a private, guided tour with a local expert. Your tour includes a visit to Yu Yuan Gardens, classical Chinese gardens dating back to the Ming Dynasty, and the Shanghai Museum, featuring ancient Chinese art with bronze, jade, and ceramics displays. We’ve also arranged for you to enjoy a traditional dim sum feast. In Hong Kong, we’ll pick you up at your hotel for private, guided sightseeing that includes a cable-car ride up Victoria Peak, the highest point on Hong Kong with views of the city and the skyscrapers; a sampan ride on the harbor; and a visit to Stanley Market, where you can shop for a large selection of clothing, jewelry, souvenirs, and more. </BR></BR>With Monograms, we also give you plenty of free time to explore on your own, and there are so many ways to experience China like an insider. Maybe take an excursion through Beijing’s ancient hutongs (alleyways)…take in a spectacular acrobatic performance in Shanghai…or haggle for pearls, brightly colored silks, or other treasures at local markets. Your Local Host will be on hand to help you make the most of your time. </BR></BR>This package features the greatest cities in China—and your Local Hosts is there to support you in each city. Monograms handles the planning, arranging, and logistics, so all you have to do is enjoy every memorable moment!
