Experience the charm of Sichuan on this varied tour which takes an in-depth look at the culture of the province, visits ancient towns and monuments, explores National Parks and samples the tantalizing cuisine. Start in the colourful capital Chengdu and visit the Giant Buddha at Leshan, take a street food tour in the backstreets, try Tai Chi with the locals and have a cooking class in a local restaurant. Next is the opportunity to spend a day helping out in the Giant Panda Base at Dujiangyan. Finish in the north of Sichuan to explore Tibetan influenced villages and Jiuzhaigou National Park (Nine Village Valley) for mesmerising scenery of ice blue lakes and pine forests overshadowed by snow-capped Himalayan peaks.
