It might be a super-speedy trip, but it really does seem to be good value, and all accommodation in four-star hotels, breakfasts and lunches are included. This "lucky" $888 price is only valid in January and February, but when we checked for the flight component alone in these months it comes out at $595 before taxes, so the $888 total is a real bargain. All that shopping in Shanghai might blow out your costs a bit, but what's life without a bit of credit card debt?
$888 Will Get You Ten Days In China, Plus Lots Of Luck
We're not always big fans of package tours, but a deal we just heard about from China Spree sounds like it could be a great way to see the musts of China if you don't have too much cash or too many vacation days. Their 10-day Golden Triangle Tour is priced at a lucky $888 (well, a lucky number for the Chinese, at least) and whirls you around China's highlights by plane and train.
Flying direct with Air China from San Francisco to Beijing, the tour takes in the Forbidden City, the Great Wall of China and the Summer Palace, then you spend a night on a train to get to Xian to see the Terracotta Warriors. A flight to Shanghai to shop and sight-see rounds out the trip.
