2 weeks holiday in China proving better value than 1 week in Scotland
By Alice Light
London, UK, 4 July 2010 – The other side of the world need not seem so far away– with China specialist Wendy Wu Tours a trip to Asia can now be better value than a holiday in Scotland with fully inclusive trips priced from just £90 per day (with no hidden extras).
A week discovering Scotland split between Edinburgh and Dundee could to some be considered as a cheap alternative to a holiday further abroad. However a day spent on the golf green, an afternoon at a local spa, whisky tasting, a tour bus and other ad-hoc excursions, can all add up. With outings planned each day, accommodation, travel and food, a week in Scotland can easily exceed £1800.
From almost the same price, £1890, travellers can experience a fully inclusive 14 day Glories of China tour this November. Wendy Wu’s 10 years of experience ensures tried and tested itineraries as well as some more ‘off the beaten path’ visits, incorporating expert local knowledge. The Glories of China tour stops in Shanghai, known as the ‘Paris of the East, and includes a cruise along the Li River, providing the perfect opportunity to admire the stunning landscape of limestone hills and tranquil fishing scenes. The itinerary also features a visit to Xian to see the world famous Terracotta Warriors as well as the opportunity to walk along the Great Wall of China and stroll through Tiananmen Square in Beijing.
Self packaged holidays can be an expensive annoyance. Organising ones travel, excursions and accommodation can be a drain on time and patience, and also on the wallet. Wendy Wu’s China Highlights tour is a 27 day long trip with a jam packed itinerary providing the perfect platform for showcasing China’s enchanting sights and local charm. This tour represents incredible value for money, working out at just £90 per day; the equivalent price of a treatment in a Scottish Spa. Encapsulating eight ancient cities, the Stone Forest in Kunming and the world’s largest stone-carved Buddhist statue amongst others, the tour feels like the trip of a lifetime, yet it is achievable from just £2,390 per person, with no hidden extras.
Long haul travel today is no longer out of reach. Those wishing to see the world can now discover far away exotic destinations with ease and comfort at extremely competitive prices. Wendy Wu Tours is offering travellers the unbeatable opportunity to see China’s colourful culture, rich history and unique scenery first hand. Prices include international flights, taxes, surcharges, domestic transportation, accommodation, all meals, daily tours, entrance fees, guides and visa fees for UK passport holders.
