Detailed Itinerary

Day 1: The Tokyo Tour

No trip to the country is complete without visiting its capital city and so is with China. You can not think about a China Tour without inculcating Tokyo into it. On that note, kick-start your China Tour with a full day tour in Tokyo, the capital city and explore the main attractions at a leisurely pace. Depending upon the time you are left with on day 1, you can pick places to explore including the Tokyo Skytree, Ghibli Museum, Harajuku Own Cafe, Roboresturant for a spectacular robot experience. Pick any or pick all - choice is completely yours but do not miss visiting the tallest tower in China if not in the world - The Skytree. There are countries that are known to have at least one tall tower in it and China is no different. Here, you will get to spot the incredible view from the top of the tallest Skytree tower which is an amazing thing.

Day 2: Sensoji Temple

Without any doubt, you can call the Sensoji temple one of the top attraction of China. Visit this epic place in the middle of the day and find it more than just a place of worship. It is packed with shops, general stores, of course, the idols which this place is known for. You can spend half of the day exploring the temple complex and half of the day to pamper your taste buds with exotic delicacies of Chinese food. For some authentic Japanese Tempura, you can head to Aoi Marushin which is located at close proximity to the temple.

Day 3: Tianmen Skywalk

For those who have no fear of height, China has a tremendous thing to offer and it is none other than the terrifying Tianmen Skywalk. It is a terrifying glass walkway built around the vertical cliffs of the mountain at a height of 4,700 meters. The height is high enough to put your breath in troubles, so take this glass walkway only if you are not afraid of height. The views you get to witness from the skywalk are incredible and the feeling is second to none. When in China, no adventure-focused trip is complete without inculcating this skywalk into the list.

Day 4: Tianmen Shan

Witness the Gateway to Heaven while climbing up to 999 stairs all leading to a huge hole right in the mountain. This is a one-of-a-kind place which is also known as the Gateway of Heaven. The entire view is stunning and the feeling to reach the top of the stairs is awe-inspiring. This place is usually shrouded with either dense fog or blinding sunlight which add to its beauty. Visitors across the world dare to climb 999 stairs to reach the peak, where legends believe the God meet the mortal world.

Day 5: Great Wall and Temple of Heaven

Begin the fifth day with the magical Temple of Heaven. A tranquil park coupled with a panoply of uniquely designed buildings with the centerpiece being the Temple of Heaven complex is simply stunning, The name Heaven fits perfect to every single element of this majestic temple. The deeper you go, the more you will explore the full variety of structures and immerse yourself in history. Once done with this, move next to China’s most famous landmark, the Great Wall. Start your journey to the Mutianyu section of the wall, a peaceful area that draws fewer crowds of people than the main Badaling section.
