Planning on visiting dd who is currently teaching in Zhenjiagang ,near Shanghai
We hope to visit next year and thinking April might be good time to go
As she will have limited time off work, thought we would have 2 weeks touring before meeting up with her in Shanghai to finish holiday? ....any recommendations for tour itinerary or for companies who would be able to put together a suitable itinerary?
We'd be flying from Manchester ( possibly business class)

Following on from a friend doing a fantastic China trip just a few weeks ago Im currently putting together a trip with the company she organised hers with. Im going business class but I always book my flights independently, I build my own holiday, but this company offers flights and a business class option you may like to consider.

Am loving your username OP. smile

My friend used Trailfinders.

She also tacked on Hong Kong to the trip.

Id never fancied China before, in fact it was just the opposite but the pictures she took just made me know I have to go there.

We used a China specialist when we went, but the name escapes me I'm afraid. We went to Beijing, Great Wall, Xian, chengdu and then on a boat down the Yangtze to shanghi. We also stayed in old shanghi (can't recall the name, but just outside and all canals. Really beautiful and reminiscent of old China).

We would love to go back as it was an amazing trip.
