The theatre will sit at the intersection of Canton Road and Austin Road, which, fittingly, is also the future site of the Xiqu Centre, the West Kowloon Cultural District's first venue set to be student tours to China completed, in 2016. It's a space designed exclusively for the promotion and continuation of Chinese opera, an art form that some believe is dying out but that many others want to revive.

How to save money at Disney-China Tours


This year, more than 43 million people are expected to visit Disney’s theme park complexes in China tours California, Florida, Paris, Hong Kong and Tokyo – and summer marks the start of the high season. But visiting can require a hefty commitment. A one-day admission to Anaheim, California’s famed Disneyland in June, for instance, starts at $87 for those aged 10 and older.


To get your money’s worth, it pays to check out independent Disney trip-planning websites in advance. They have excellent track records for keeping their detailed trip-planning resources up to date, and are not affiliated with the Disney brand, Yangtze River cruises enabling them to provide unbiased recommendations for saving money at the various parks. Some of the sites also dispense advice on how to avoid long queues, find lodging and otherwise make the most of your visit.



Undercover Tourist is a website run since 2000 by an authorised Orlando broker where tickets to Florida’s Walt Disney World are usually less expensive than tickets sold at the park gate; a recent five-day pass purchased through Undercover Tourist was 11% cheaper. The site anticipates that Walt Disney World will travel to Shangri-la hike single-day admission prices this year – the park traditionally makes these announcements every June and has been averaging 6% hikes in recent years – but notes that tickets booked at current prices will remain valid, so you can buy tickets now, and use them after the price hike. The site also sells competitively-priced lodging and discount tickets to other Orlando-area attractions, such as SeaWorld or Universal Studios. As a bonus, the website’s free apps for iPhone, Android, and Blackberry list real-time wait times at all the rides in the park.


Mousesavers specialises in publishing deals and promotions offered by Disney and related companies, such as 15% discounts off park hotel stays. The 12-year-old site mainly publishes deals for Disney’s US parks, though non-US residents can take advantage of most of the offers and the site does have trip-planning information for the non-US locations. Especially useful is China educational tours Mousesavers’ frequently asked questions sections for the California and Florida parks. For example, the site explains that some non-Disney affiliated hotels near Disneyland and Walt Disney World pay for the right to advertise themselves as official Disney’s “Good Neighbor” hotels. But according to Mousesavers, these hotels aren’t consistently better in quality, price or upkeep than other properties in the area and the label shouldn’t be used as a factor when picking a place to stay.

Discover Macau Beyond the Roulette Wheel-China Tours


Peer across the smoky gambling tables and the lines of slot machines in Macau’s China tours crowded casino halls, and there is little doubt as to what the greatest attraction is for the majority of the 28 million people who visit this Special Administrative Region of China each year. Yet beyond the neon façade, Macau has much more to offer.


The Portuguese controlled Macau for almost 450 years and in that time built churches, fortresses and grand homes in the distinctive architectural style of their motherland. When Macau was returned to China in 1999, many locals expected the new rulers to gradually erase the legacy of the European colonial days. But Chinese authorities quickly realised that Macau’s unique heritage holds enormous potential to China tour promote the region as a tourist destination. In the last decade, the Chinese have renovated many buildings in their original Portuguese style, installed typical early 20th-century Portuguese streetlights and made every effort to celebrate Macau's colourful history.



A stroll through the historic district’s narrow cobblestone streets makes it easy to see the fusion of Chinese and Portuguese that created such a distinct Macanese culture. Shops selling fresh egg tarts that could have come straight out of a Lisbon bakery are found alongside stalls with bak kwa, wafer-thin slices of marinated dried meat; colonial European buildings are decorated with Yangtze River cruises bright red Chinese lanterns; even within the Catholic churches there are paintings of the Madonna and child, both with unmistakably Asian features and dressed in flowing Chinese silk robes.


Street signs meanwhile display names in Cantonese and Portuguese, travel to Shangri-la with the two versions not always sharing the same meaning; the Portuguese wanted to commemorate historical figures by naming streets and alleys in their honour, but the Chinese did not always hold them in the same high esteem.

My Trip to Shanghai Sculpture Park China


Take the subway to Sheshan, then a 7-minute taxi ride (there's a taxi rank at the subway station) and you are at Yueyuanyuan Sclupture Park (often also referred to as Sheshan Sculpture Park).This park is different (in a good way!) from China business travel many others I have seen in China:


- the 120 CNY entrance fee (per adult) keeps the riff-raff out and makes the park an uncrowded, quiet and well-preserved destination for a Sunday morning stroll (or a day's outing, if you bring enough food and drink - bringing an entire picnic along is fine as far as I could tell). The ticket actually includes a soft drink at any of the restaurants, which wasn't very obvious to us but a nice surprise. The China educational tours grounds are overly manicured and in some locations a touch sterile; but on the other hand - and as opposed to other places - you can walk on the grass, bring your dog and let it off the leash, play frisbee or badminton - we were surprised this was okay with the park, since many places in China just will not allow this.



- there is an artificial beach quite close to what can best be described as the general entertainment and food area. I suggest you stay away from that, this is the only place where people gather and it gets a bit noisy. There are many more China tours beautiful spots that you can occupy and feel as if you are more or less alone ("alone" by Chinese definition!)


- many people do not seem to notice, and the park map also does not seem to make it easy to navigate: the park connects to the equally beautiful grounds of the "Le Meridien" hotel. This is a big building on your left after you pass the "beach" area if you are going through the park clock-wise. After a bit of searching we had no problem going through China tour the gate to the hotel for a nice lunch. if you come by public transport, the hotel is also a good place to depart from, since the concierge there will organize a taxi for you. If you believe that Shanghai is all about Bund, shopping, bars, Tianzefang and dumplings, the go out here and be surprised!

Tour to Shannghai to Visit Sheshan National Holiday Resort

As a whole, it looks like a huge horse about to fly away, so it got the name Tianmashan (Heaven Horse Mountain). I think it is the best place in Shanghai to go for a hike or a walk. Tianmashan is exactly 100 meters high, so not a real mountain. But it’s the highest hill in the whole of flat Shanghai, even higher than Sheshan. And it’s more beautiful than Sheshan, because there are China business travel not as many people and there are some great trails through the bamboo forests. There is even a leaning tower called Huzhu Pagoda that has a bigger angle than the Tower of Pisa with a history of more than 900 years.
