Foreign Travel Advice

See the best of China’s northern and southern regions, and a little bit of Laos, on an overland adventure between Beijing and Luang Prabang. Visit no less than three sacred mountains: Wutai Shain, Emei Shan, and Wudang Shan; explore the world-famous Giant Panda Centre in Chengdu; trek the upper trail of the imposing Tiger Leaping Gorge; spend three days among the locals on a cruise along the Yangzte River; and walk along the Jinshanling section of the Great Wall of China. While in China, our local guide will help us find the best local restaurants and street food stalls, so we can eat as the locals do. In northern Laos, enjoy a few days in the stunning countryside around the small town of Luang Namtha and the nearby Nam Ha National Park.
