7-night China tour from $999 including international flights
With a package like this, you won't have to worry about a thing.
That's right, Groupon is offering up a seven-night tour of China for a bargain price. Organised by Travel Asia, this is a quick-sticks, week-long trip through Beijing, Hangzhou, Suzhou and Shanghai. The price includes everything from international flights and accommodation to meals and admission fees, and it's all for under $1,000 per person.
Considering that international flights to China alone can cost at least $500 return on an all-inclusive airline, the value for money on this package is huge.
The package flights are available from Sydney and Melbourne, although you can fly out of Brisbane and Perth for an extra $350. The flights are all-inclusive and include 23kg of checked luggage.
Travel dates are available throughout 2018, so you can pick and choose the week that works best for you and your travel companion, which, by the way, you'll want to grab, as while these prices are per person, they're also based on twin share. If you'd prefer to travel on your own, however, you can opt to do so with a single supplement for an extra $350. This can be tacked onto your purchase when you book.
Valued at $1,999, daily deals site Groupon has slashed the price of this tour by 50%, but only until it's all sold out.
The tour starts in Beijing, which is where you'll fly into, meet your English-speaking tour guide and be transferred to your accommodation. From here, highlights of the tour include Tienanmen Square in the Forbidden City, the Great Wall, the 2008 Olympic Games sites in Beijing, West Lake in Hangzhou, Master of the Nets Garden in Suzhou and the Bund in Shanghai.
The beauty of this trip is that while it might seem packed, there's still room for optional activities such as richshaw tours, tai chi lessons and evening performances. And if you'd prefer to explore on your own, you have the option as well. A dedicated coach has been organised to transfer you between attractions and cities, making for a comfortable and seamless journey.
The tour ends in Shanghai, which is also where you'll catch your flight home.
