ACTA partnered and participated in a China FAM trip hosted by Nexus Holidays from Nov. 12 to 24.
The Splendid China itinerary was escorted from Toronto by Nexus Holidays and ACTA and included a guide for the full land duration in China, as well as local Nexus guides in each of the cities visited.
The itinerary included Beijing, Xi’an, Suzhou, Wuxi, Hangzhou and Shanghai. Highlights included an in depth tour of Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City, walking on the Great Wall of China, a visit to the Terra Cotta Warriors and Horse Museum, a walk on the ancient city wall in Xi’an, a boat cruise on the Grand Canal in Suzhou, a visit to the Lingshan Grand Buddha – one of the largest Buddha statues in the world - and an evening cruise to view the city lights in Shanghai.
Twenty travel agents from across Canada were treated to Chinese specialties that included a Peking duck dinner and an Imperial Dumpling Banquet dinner.
