Spa & Wellness Tour of China

(10 Days - Departs Daily on a Private Basis)
Shanghai & environs, Suzhou, Hangzhou

This private luxury tour of China features traditional Chinese wellness experiences, in-depth cultural touring, and accommodation at top luxury hotels and spa resorts.

Begin at Amanyangyun, a relaxing luxury resort outside Shanghai that features traditional Chinese villas in an ancient camphor forest. During your stay, explore the beautiful Ming dynasty-style architecture and enjoy hands-on traditional Chinese cultural activities such as calligraphy, tea tasting, incense making and woodblock printing. Upon request, Artisans of Leisure can arrange spa treatments and specialty relaxation and fitness experiences at the resort's expansive wellness center.

Next, visit historic Suzhou to cruise canals past whitewashed Ming dynasty residences and tour UNESCO-listed traditional Chinese gardens. Continue to nearby Sangha Retreat, a lakeside luxury wellness resort and medical spa with state-of-the-art facilities. During your stay, perhaps opt for a comprehensive physical assessment or wellness regimen or indulge in selected activities according to your interests, such as guided meditations, qigong and tai chi sessions, fitness classes, beauty therapies and spa treatments based on healing philosophies from around the world.

Continue by high-speed train to Hangzhou, a city famous for high-quality tea and scenic West Lake. During flexible private touring, visit local tea plantations, take a private cruise on West Lake, tour Buddhist temples and monasteries, visit gardens, see historic shops, and learn about herbs and traditional Chinese medicine, another local specialty. Upon request, Artisans of Leisure will arrange tickets to Impression West Lake, a spectacular light show and performance that takes place on the lake.

Return to central Shanghai, and stay at the finest luxury hotel in this 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.
