River Cruise #2 - Roof of the World Cruise Tour, Beijing, Xian, China and Tibet

Some of the things we will experience on our next Adventure on this 17-day cruisetour in the world's oldest continuous civilization. This is our second trip to Beijing and Xian, we are visiting some of the same places, but a little later, May instead of February. Beijing dates back more than 3,000 years and was a grand imperial capital from the 10th century until it became the capital of the new communist nation in 1949. It is inarguably China's historic and cultural center, a massive repository where the harried pace of today thrives amidst the reverential tone of enormous monuments to the past, from the sprawling Forbidden City to the serpentine Great Wall. Beijing also exudes an intimate side, found among the quiet warrens of hutongs. These tidy residential pockets recall the Peking of old and bring visitors back to China at its most authentic.
