Great Wall to Li River

CHINA NORTH TO SOUTH

From the Great Wall to the Li River

Overview
Imagine: you start your journey riding on your bike through the city center of Beijing among thousands of other people. No matter how much China’s appearance changes, the city bike is still a common sight on the street. Wide avenues with slow driving traffic, offer you the background for the real ‘China experience’. In 17 days we will take you on a amazing trip  along some of China’s most famous highlights like the Forbidden City, the Great Wall, and the magnificent limestone formations of the Li River. Most of the time we`ll cycle in the countryside on relative quiet roads and with ever changing scenery. If this is your first visit to China, this cycling trip offers you the real China in a nutshell.
