LOS ANGELES, April 24, 2006 - SITA World Tours presents China Splendors. A 15-day sybaritic tour of China's most prevalent cities, temples and archaeological wonders. Inclusive of all air, domestic and international, China Splendors has two departure dates priced from $2,590, September 9th and November 18th.

From Beijing to Shanghai, travelers with SITA will visit the Great Wall, Tiananmen Square, the Forbidden City, the Temple of Heaven, the Terracotta Warriors of Xi'an and cruise the Yangtze River aboard the luxurious Oriental River Cruise Ship. Clients of SITA will also have the opportunity to visit the Summer Palace in Beijing. Perched on Longevity Hill, overlooking Kunming Lake, the Summer Palace is a UNESCO World Heritage Site boasting classical gardens and enigmatic pagodas.

First-time visitors to China typically overlook the 12th day of this amaranthine journey. However, the picturesque views along the Li River captivate all who enter the Guangxi region. The mystery of this ancient province of China is revealed as travelers board a slow moving vessel from Guilin to visit the enchanting village of Yangshuo. From a bird's-eye view, the cityscape of Yangshuo appears to be the audience section of an amphitheater of karst peaks. Home to one of the best antique and craft markets in China, Yangshuo provides for an experience unique to most itineraries to China.

Shanghai, otherwise known as "the Paris of the East", is the final destination visited in the China Splendors itinerary. As China's largest city and one of the most important cultural and commercial centers in the country, Shanghai offers tourists an impressive riverfront sector known as the Bund. Rich in Art Deco architecture, the Bund stretches 1.5 kilometers and was featured in Steven Speilberg's Empire of the Sun.

China Splendors is a distinct itinerary that caters to modest tourists and discerning travelers alike. With over seven decades of experience as a tour operator, SITA provides luxurious and customized programs to destinations worldwide, including Africa & the Mediterranean, Australia & New Zealand, China & the Orient, Europe, India, and South America.
