Several of China’s most exciting cities and historic sites are on the itinerary of the Jaffrey Chamber’s upcoming trip to China, including an excursion to Xi’an, home of the Terra Cotta Warriors.

The cost is $2,599 for Jaffrey Chamber members and $2,699 for nonmembers. This remarkably low price is available through the efforts of the Jaffrey Chamber in conjunction with Citslinc International, a company that works with over 800 chambers of commerce in the US and Canada and takes over 20,000 chamber passengers to China every year. A $250 non-refundable registration deposit is required to guarantee your space and offered pricing.

On the itinerary will be visits to the 4,000-mile-long Great Wall, the Forbidden City – home of 24 emperors with a total space of 9,999 rooms, Tiananmen Square – the largest square in the world, a jade factory, the pearl market, the Summer Palace, the Ming tombs, local entertainment, and much more.

A special component is a visit to the extraordinary Terra Cotta Warriors in Xi’an. This collection of terra cotta sculptures of over 8,000 soldiers, chariots and horses depict the armies of the first Emperor of China. The figures are life-sized, varying in height, facial features and uniform in accordance with rank. Considered by many to be the most significant archaeological excavation of the 20th century, the Warriors are sure to be the highlight of your visit to China.

  This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience first-hand the people, history, culture, commerce and daily life of this exciting country at a very affordable price.
