Suggested itinerary for School groups
There can be few other trips that compare with a visit to the sites and the monuments of China, and the chance to take in not just one but three different locations is a real joy to behold. From the Great Wall of China on the outskirts of Beijing to the bright lights of the Bund in central Shanghai, this school history tour promises to be an amazing experience for all concerned.
As mentioned, this is a threecentre option, and in between Beijing and Shanghai you'll be visiting Xian.
Starting at the top is always best practise and young historians eager to discover the ancient world via Beijing's series of palaces, monuments and temples won't be disappointed. The Forbidden City, the Palace Museum and the National Museum of China all hold an inordinate amount of information for students interested in the imperial dynasties, while Tiananmen Square and the Mao Memorial Hall both hold particular value for areas of study closer to the present day.
Moving away from the capital and southwards to Xian allows students to reflect on what they've experienced before they enter the realm of Emperor Qin Shi Hang and his unflinching army of warriors. There aren't many more recognisable figures in the world of sculpture, and as Xian also holds more than 3,000 years under its belt it's understandably considered a 'must' for visiting history students.
As you'd expect from the world's busiest container port, Shanghai has as many stories and legends as it does historical landmarks and from the incredibly important Shanghai Museum to the popular attractions surrounding the People's Square, this is a more than fitting location to end any school trip.
