Description

Verdurez Annual Meetup (VAM) 2019: Flavours of China

I have recieved a request to organise one national and one international meetup from now on. This is a good idea as it would cater to a broader audience and multiple tastes.


Meghalaya is our national meetup this year and for our international gathering, China is the chosen one.


China, Asia's largest country, swings between the modern and centuries old culture and traditions.

Here is a wonderful opportunity to get a taste of China.

Experience the mighty modern achievements from an ancient and incredibly rich civilisation whose recorded history dates back some 5,000 years.

Historical Beijing & the Great Wall
Xi'an & the Terra Cotta Army
Chengdu & the Giant Pandas
Zhangjiajie & the Grand Canyon Glass Bridge
Futuristic Shanghai

Duration: 11 days & 10 nights

Destinations: Beijing - Xi'an - Chengdu - Zhangjiajie - Shanghai

Starting Point: Beijing

Ending Point: Shanghai

Dates: September 1st to 11th, 2019

As per the attached tour program, we are to reach China in Beijing airport and we are to leave from Shangai airport. It seems more than one choice comes in when one tries to book on line in Make my trip. It is better to specify the airport code for both these airports ,so that one will not book by mistake and create chaos later.As per the attached tour program, we are to reach China in Beijing airport and we are to leave from Shangai airport.
