Unrivalled luxury with The Peninsula Hotels

10 days from £5,750 per person

This itinerary takes you through China’s most luxurious city hotels in the unsurpassed opulence and matchless service of the Peninsular Hotel Group.

Start your journey in China’s capital, Beijing, a political powerhouse with a thriving intellectual and influential artistic scene. The Peninsula Beijing is an iconic landmark in the heart of China’s dynamic capital. It’s streamlined and chic interiors, and elegant ambiance offer the ultimate comfort just a short walk from the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square. Whilst in Beijing you will also have the opportunity to explore the grand and ancient history of the Summer Palace and the beautiful Temple of Heaven. Spend the day walking along the undulating Great Wall, where every ancient brick tells a fascinating story.

From Beijing you will fly to Shanghai, where the Peninsula is our number one luxury property in the colonial Paris of the East. Perfectly located at the top of the iconic Bund, you can explore the focal part of the city very easily on foot directly from the hotel. The near-perfect hotel offers spoiling comfort and exceptional views, and even though it is in the heart of the busting city, the Peninsular is a haven of relaxation and tranquillity. Explore the tree-lined streets of the former French Concession and its distinctive character, and in the evening take a sunset stroll through the iconic banking houses along the Bund.

The final part of your journey will take you to one of the most exciting and alive cities in Asia and the world-renowned Grande Dame of the Far East, the Peninsular Hong Kong. Expertly combining eastern and western hospitality in an atmosphere of classical grandeur and timeless elegance, it suits those looking for a classic Hong Kong experience with all the luxury comforts, killer views and great service. Take a private helicopter flight from the hotel rooftop and soar above the frantic but enchanting island; lose yourself in the markets or go shopping in its giant malls; take in the spectacular view from the top of Victoria Peak and learn about its fascinating history; eat in the finest restaurants and party into the early morning; whatever you end up doing, you will leave the country feeling invigorated and wanting more.

This tour is purely a suggested itinerary. It can be booked as is or alternatively used as a starting point for creating your own perfect tailor-made holiday to China.

I can't think of anything that excites a greater sense of childlike wonder than to be in a country where you are ignorant of almost everything.

Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
We have been on expensive and luxurious holidays in the past, but the service and communication Ampersand has provided has far exceeded those offered by other agencies.
