Day 1 arrival Beijing
You will be met at the arrival hall of the Beijing airport and brought to the hotel in the center of the city. After a short rest you will instantly have the opportunity to feel the atmosphere of this metropolis.
Day 2 Beijing
Today you will have a full day tour with car and English speaking guide: morning pick up from hotel, go to visit Lama tempel, Temple of Heaven, Tiananmen Square, Forbidden City, back to hotel in the afternoon. Beijing was the capital of the last two imperial dynasties and thus has many monumental traces.

In the center of Beijing is the Forbidden City, the former home and workplace of the emperors and their immense court. Within the thick high walls one can spend hours wandering through the many palaces, pavilions and gardens. Above the entrance gate of the Forbidden City still hangs the huge portrait of Mao Zedong, which overlooks the immense Tiananmen Square. On and beside the square are the Mao Mausoleum, the National Museum and the Great Hall of the People.
Besides the Tian'anmen Square and the Forbidden City, you may also visit the Lama Temple. The Lama Temple is a good example of a Tibetan Buddhist temple. The building was first the personal palace of Emperor Yongzheng but was renamed Temple. Lamas mainly from Inner Mongolia come here a few times a year together for a service.

In the evening, you could have free time to enjoy the famous dish from the Beijing or Northern cuisine, Peking Duck, at one of the many Peking Duck restaurants in town. (The guide will give you some advice about the restaurant).  But time has not stood still. Beijing has now become a very modern city with newly designed skyscrapers, Western shopping malls, Internet cafes and fast cars. If you're interested, could ask advices from guide.
Day 3 Beijing
What would a trip to China be like without visiting the Great Wall?

Today, you could make an optional excursion to the Great Wall. The excursion to the Great Wall at Mutianyu (about eighty kilometers outside the city and slightly less touristy) is literally one of the highlights of your visit to Beijing. As far as eye can reach, the Wall winds across the hills to the rugged and desolate landscape. On the way back to the city you will visit the Summer Palace (Yiheyuan). This masterful summer residence is due to the desire of Emperor Qianlong and Empress Dowager Cixi.

In the evening you can take (optional) Beijing Opera or Kongfu Performance! Of course you can on your own explore the city further.
Day 4 Beijing - Xi’an
Today you take the high speed train (6 hours)  to Xi'an, the old imperial capital and start of the Silk Road.In Xi'an you will still feel the influences of the different peoples and religions that have come along with the caravans from Central Asia. Xi'an, the former capital during the Tang Dynasty (618-907), was the terminus of the Silk Road caravans and center of international trade in East Asia. There are the atmospheric Grand Mosque and the Muslim eateries in the old neighborhood. The city wall has been completely restored as the Drum Tower and Bell Tower. There used to be these towers in every Chinese city, but mostly they were destroyed or lost over time.
Day 5 Xi'an
The main attraction is of course the Xi'an terracotta army, part of the tomb of Qin Shihuangdi, the first emperor of China. You will visit this place,  where you also will visit the Chinese and medicament spice market and the large Goose Pagoda, where the texts were stored by the Buddhist monk Xuan Zang who took them from India and translated.

In the famous Huimin street you are offered a food tour, to try all sorts of different kinds of food, from the (mainly) muslim population here.
Day 6 Xi'an - Ping'an
Today a flight from Xi'an to Guilin for where you will have a transfer to Ping'an.This village is surrounded by rice fields.

These terraces are among the most impressive of Asia. Although the rice terraces in Yuanyang in southeastern Yunnan cover a larger area, they are just as spectacular. The terraces were built centuries ago by the Zhuang and Yao population who settled centuries 
Day 7 Ping'an
You can enjoy this beautiful area all day long by taking a guided walk today (4-5 hours) to Dazhai village. You will take a nice walk along several viewpoints where you have a beautiful view over the terraces. You can see the sowing, the daily care of the rice plants and the harvest (depending on the season) with your own eyes. As far as you look, the rice terraces roll out in front of you. Early in the morning the strands of white clouds hanging between the mountains create a peaceful scene. Of course you can also just stay in Ping'an for a day, look for a quiet spot on the square and watch daily life there.
Day 8 Ping'an - Yangshuo
A private transfer awaits you to take you to Yangshuo. Yangshuo is located by Li River, amidst the impressive landscape of eroded karst mountains. The bumps in the landscape bear fanciful names like Swan Hill, Lotus Peak and Drakenkopheuvel. This particular landscape has been since time immemorial a source of inspiration for poets and painters.
Day 9 Yangshuo
In the morning a cycling tour along the roads in Yangshuo village to the Yulong river dock; then take the bamboo raft floating over Yulong river; get on the dock and continue your bike tour to Moon Hill, after visiting cycle back to hotel.
