Tang Dynasty Diner HallCultural Immersion
During this adventure, you will be exposed to local arts and crafts, having the opportunity to talk with artists and witness them at work. You will also visit small villages where in many ways life goes on in China unchanged from centuries past.

Vantage Adventures shows you the sites you've come so far to see, then takes you beyond them so you can experience the real China, up close and personal! Visit schools where winsome children welcome you into their classrooms, from Guilin to the small village of Shi Bao Zhai along the Yangtze. Learn about life along the fabled river when you meet a family who was relocated as the waters rose after completion of the Three Gorges Dam. Take in the beauty of Guilin's Li River, one of China's most beautiful waterways … and head up the dramatic Goodness stream on a private motorboat. Join a "pub crawl" in Shanghai if you're inclined to stay up late. Join us, and see how Vantage Adventures opens up the world to you!

Cycling Xian Cycling Xian
Cyclists are everywhere in China. While you may not be ready to brave the bewildering bike traffic jams of Beijing, never fear…We have the perfect place for you to pedal along: Xian. Specifically, you can cycle along the ancient city walls, where the wide roadway does not permit automobile traffic, and the stout ramparts provide a safe buffer and amazing views. Bikes can be rented at each of the four main wall gates, and you can ride around the entire perimeter of the wall in 1-2 hours. At ground level, you can also cycle along a warren of old-style streets. Your Program Director can help you plan a bike outing. See the map below.
