June 15, 2017 Tour Operator No Comments Email Email

Wendy Wu Tours is delighted to announce the launch of a brand new itinerary, in celebration of the China-Australia Year of Tourism. The headlining event on this new itinerary? An exclusive Tang Dynasty Welcoming Ceremony at the Ancient City Wall in Xian, China, usually reserved only for visiting dignitaries.

2017 commemorates the partnership of China and Australia, in a an official “Year of Tourism”, recognising the important relationship between the two nations. Twenty three years ago, Wendy Wu was one of the trailblazers in opening up this “sleeping dragon” to tourism, and over the years, the company has been the first to host tours to destinations including the Nine Villages Valley and the, now famous, Zhangjiajie, as well as leading the first overland tour to Lhasa, accessed from China.

Today, China is well and truly on the map for Aussies; in fact in 2016, over 400,000 Australians travelled to China as a main destination, staying 8 million nights (Source: Tourism Australia).

To mark this event, join us for an exclusive grand opening ceremony at the ancient city wall in Xian. On September 14, 1,000 lucky Australian tourists visiting Xi’an will be invited to experience a statelevel Chang’an Impression Tang Dynasty Welcoming Ceremony, courtesy of the China National Tourism Administration. This prestigious ceremony has been held only on very limited occasions to welcome official dignitaries in previous years, including former President Bill Clinton.

Limited seats are available, and Wendy Wu Tours is one of the few exclusive tour operators to be invited to attend this priceless event. For those who would like to experience this exclusive ceremony, Wendy Wu Tours has created a bespoke, and one-off tour, taking in both the event and some of China’s most beloved highlights.

This 11-day journey through China’s historic past, and buzzing present starts in Xian, gateway to the unforgettable Terracotta Warriors. Next, take in China’s breathtaking scenery of the Yangtze River, via a 3 day river cruise, taking in the spectacular Three Gorges. Finally, journey to the striking 3,000 pillars of Zhangjiajie, inspiration for the blockbuster movie ‘Avatar’.
