Travellers opt for group tours
Asia holiday specialist Wendy Wu Tours has seen a massive growth in travellers opting for China group tours, with 2018 passenger numbers boosted by 40% this year.
The company’s fastest growing tours in popularity are the Classic China Tour (up 124% on the same time last year) and the Glories of China Tour, which has seen an 88% rise during the period.
The 21-day Classic China tour takes travellers from Beijing to Shanghai, featuring a cruise along the Yangtze and Li Rivers to soak up the landscapes of Yunnan province.
Highlights include the chance to saunter the cobbled streets of Lijiang, explore the Stone Forest and gaze over the Tiger Leaping Gorge.
The 14-day Glories of China combines the urban destinations of Shanghai, Beijing and Xian with the sights of the Great Wall, Terracotta Warriors and the Li River.
