This ultimate luxury tour of China combines the most fascinating cities—imperial Beijing, stylish Shanghai and cosmopolitan Hong Kong—with a stunning resort in a spectacular rural setting outside Lijiang. During private touring, experience China's highlights, including imperial palaces, ancient temples, colonial-era architecture, water gardens, rustic villages, local markets and stunning landscapes.

Begin in Beijing, China's centuries-old capital. With your private guide and driver, tour imperial masterpieces such as the Forbidden City, the Temple of Heaven and the Summer Palace. Explore the narrow hutongs (lanes) of a traditional residential neighborhood. See lesser-known temples, and venture to a little-visited hilltop for panoramic views over the rooftops of the Forbidden City. Visit markets specializing in pearls, silk, food and furniture, and, if desired, explore new art gallery districts that showcase the city's burgeoning contemporary art scene. One day, take an excursion to the Great Wall of China.

Continue to China's rural, southwestern Yunnan Province. Spend several nights at a luxury resort in Lijiang—one of China's best-preserved traditional villages, located in the foothills of the Himalayas. Tour the cultural and scenic highlights of the region: visit hill tribe villages, see ancient Buddhist frescoes, attend a Naxi musical concert, browse the shops and charming streets lining canals in town and visit monasteries and beautiful parks at the base of the mountains.

Next, fly to Shanghai and experience the unbridled energy of China's most stylish and modern city. During private touring, learn about Shanghai's history through the architecture of the Bund, the French Concession, Pudong and other districts. Tour some of China's best museums, including the Shanghai Museum. Also visit up-and-coming neighborhoods filled with art galleries, design shops and stylish new restaurants. One day, take an excursion to Suzhou or another nearby water town to cruise canals lined with Ming Dynasty homes, and tour private gardens that we've chosen as our favorites.

Conclude in Hong Kong, one of Asia's most attractive and exciting cities, with a spectacular skyline, beautiful harbors and beaches, superb restaurants, bustling markets and much more. With your expert private guide and driver, learn about the historic buildings and modern skyscrapers in Central. Tour interesting residential neighborhoods in the hills. Explore traditional markets, ride a sampan (fishing boat) across Aberdeen harbor and a tram up Victoria Peak, browse the boutiques in the fashionable Soho district and perhaps get fitted for custom clothing at our favorite tailors. Explore local markets to learn about traditional Chinese medicine and unusual food products. Also visit excellent museums, a tea house, and other favorite spots.
