Unrivalled luxury with The Peninsula Hotels
9 days from £7,040 for 2023 per person
This itinerary takes you through China’s most luxurious city hotels in the unsurpassed opulence and matchless service of the Peninsula 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 ambience 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 Peninsula 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 Peninsula 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.
