Wendy Wu Tours

China is full of tremendous surprises and an ancient history, as well as outstanding scenery and unique wildlife, who could resist the pandas in Sichuan?

Beijing itself is a capital city to marvel at, Lhasa a wonder of the world and Shanghai the ultimate in cosmopolitan bustle.

A country of dramatic contrasts, the wide lazy Yangtze river, the Huangguoshu falls and the Zhangjiajie limestone forest. Wendy Wu has a tour to suit every interest, starting with just 10 days with the ‘China Experience’ or a tripto Tibet. Alternatively take an Epic Dreams tour for 30 days really embracing all things Chinese.
