You’d be surprised by just how much China you can squeeze into a single week. Need proof? Look no further than this tour. It begins with two busy days in Shanghai before heading off to Yangshuo — a backpacker’s haven set deep amid the forested hills of the Guangxi region — where you can practice calligraphy, study tai chi, and learn how to make local delicacies. Then, it’s off to Hong Kong to wrap things up with two days in one of the world’s most mind-blowing cities. Short on days, long on memories.
