    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 3 - 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.

    Day 4 - 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 5 - Jingzhou, China


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

    Day 6 - Wu Gorge, China


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

    Day 7 - Wu Gorge, China


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

    Day 8 - Shibaozhai, China


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

    Day 9 - 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 10 - Chongqing, China


    Today Chongqing, with its Manhattan-like skyline, is China's most important inland city.

    Day 11 - Lijiang, China


    Laced by narrow canals lined with paper lanterns and traditional timber-built houses, Lijiang's Old Quarter of historic warrens, intimate enclaves and gracefully arched bridges is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

    Once a center of silk embroidery, Lijiang was a major stop on the trade route known as the Old Tea Horse Caravan Trail.

    Day 13 - Chengdu, China


    Chengdu Panda Base lets visitors observe the giant bears playing, resting and eating while experts explain different ways to protect these gentle creatures.

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

    Day 15 - 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 16 - Xian, China


    Once among the world's largest and richest cities, Xian sat at the terminus of the fabled Silk Road.

    Day 17 - Beijing, China


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

    Day 18 - Beijing, China


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

    Day 19 - Beijing, China


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