Taste of China REDUX!

As we see every day here in the office, when something’s good, it’s really, really good. And when that something is a chance to tour an incredible part of the world at jaw-dropping prices, it definitely won’t last long. Our latest Taste of China trips for $999 were so popular and sold out so quickly, we knew we had to work extra hard to make those prices available again … and soon! 

And today, I’m thrilled to report that WE DID IT! It’s not often that a once-in-a-lifetime deal actually comes around for a second time. But that’s exactly what’s happened with our Taste of China tour at only $999, including airfare, great hotels, many meals, all transfers, and some guided touring.


As a refresher, Taste of China takes Friendly Planeteers on a 10-day tour through three of China’s most fascinating cities: Beijing, Xi’an, and Shanghai.

Beijing — China’s historic and cultural capital — and Shanghai — often called the "Paris of the East" — are probably two of the most dynamic cities in the world. And Xi’an is the site of one of the world’s most important archeological treasures: the army of 2,200-year-old terra-cotta soldiers, including more than 8,000 life-size ceramic soldiers, chariots, and horses buried there to protect the tomb of the first Qin emperor.

Travelers on the Taste of China vacation will be exposed to all of the most significant and breathtaking splendors of China, from the Forbidden City to the Great Wall of China to the Temple of Heaven. They’ll also get a taste of what life is truly like in China, when we stop by picturesque villages, a traditional school, and bustling street vendors.


 If you missed it the first time, don’t let this opportunity pass you by again! For more information or to book, contact us or visit the Friendly Planet Travel Web site.

Featured Deal: Discover Morocco

Morocco is one of Africa’s most popular travel destinations. The country offers visitors a dazzling mosaic of Arab and Berber cultures, with a dash of African and European influence thrown in for good measure.
From its beautiful Atlantic and Mediterranean beaches, deserts complete with oases and towering sand dunes, magnificent imperial cities, Islamic landmarks, Joujoukan and Gnaoua trance music, fantastic food, Roman antiquities, and mountain villages, even the most experienced globetrotter will find plenty to see and do in Morocco.
And with Friendly Planet Travel, you can see and do it all in eight days for only $1,999. Our sale prices include savings of up to $600 per couple if you reserve before July 9. Of course, that includes round trip flights from JFK International, all fuel surcharges, great hotels, transfers, most meals, guided touring, and more.
Your adventure begins in Casablanca, the largest city and main port of Morocco. Your guide will take you through the city’s most important and historical mosques; most beautiful city and ocean views; and most splendid examples of architecture, the design style known as Mooresque, a combination of both Moroccan and French architectural elements.
From there, you’ll travel on to Rabat, Volubilis, Meknes, Fez, and Marrakesh, before boarding a plane back to the U.S. on the eighth day. Your days will be delightfully packed with bustling outdoor markets, Roman ruins, imperial cities, and busy night life.
And each night you’ll bed down in style and comfort, with some nights spent in five-star hotels. Have a look at the Friendly Planet Travel Web site for more information on our Discover Morocco vacation.
