    Day by Day

    Day 1 - Beijing, China


    Beijing, a grand imperial capital from the 10th century until Communism in 1949, holds over 3,000 years of history.

    Day 2 - Beijing, China


    From the sprawling Forbidden City to the serpentine Great Wall, Beijing is a massive repository of the monuments of the past.

    Day 3 - Beijing, China


    Quiet warrens of courtyard homes, Beijing at its most authentic, recall the Peking of old.

    Day 4 - Xian, China


    Thousands of ancient Terra Cotta Warriors, buried with Emperor Qin Shi Huang over 2,000 years ago, were unearthed in Xian in 1974.

    Day 5 - Xian, China


    Over 3,100 years old, Xian rivals Egypt and Greece as the birthplace of civilization; its peak came during the glorious Tang Dynasty.

    Day 6 - Chongqing, China


    Perched on steep hills where the Yangtze and Jialing Rivers meet, Chongqing was one of the Allies' three World War II headquarters.

    Day 7 - Shibaozhai, China


    Shibaozhai Temple (Precious Stone Fortress) is a gem of Chinese architecture.

    Day 8 - Three Gorges, China


    At 25 miles long, Wu Gorge is a breathtaking canvas of forest-covered mountains, sheer cliffs, rising mist and cascading waterfalls.

    Day 9 - Three Gorges Dam, China


    Part of the Three Gorges system on the Yangtze River, Wu Gorge is perhaps the most beautiful stretch in the river.

    Day 10 - Jingzhou, China


    Within Jingzhou, ancient Ying's city walls, gates and watchtowers help Jingzhou strike a dramatic pose on the Yangtze's banks.

    Day 11 - Wuhan, China


    One of the most important cities of China's Republican Revolution, this capital of Hubei province is a gateway to the Yangtze Gorges.

    Day 12 - Shanghai, China


    The metropolis and financial center of Shanghai orbits around its famous Bund, an elegant riverfront promenade overlooked by colonial-era banks.

    Day 13 - Shanghai, China


    The largest city in China and one of the world's most important ports, Shanghai began as a tiny fishing village 5,000 years ago.

    Day 14 - Shanghai, China


    Because Shanghai has long welcomed people from all over the world, it has a history of being an open-minded city with a freewheeling character.
