CST announces new adventure: Craft Beer & The Great Wall Tour

CST China Special Tours announces new adventure:
Craft Beer & The Great Wall of China
Unique trip will provide great insight to ancient cultures and modern life

ANAHEIM, California – March 17, 2016 – The worldwide growing popularity of craft beer is a vital trend in China as well. Local microbreweries are popping up all over the country. Beer enthusiasts will have a chance, this fall, to explore China’s ancient sites and sample some unique brews along the way.

Visits to local microbreweries in Beijing and Shanghai will offer a chance to sample beer with uniquely Chinese characteristics — as local beers often contain rice, sorghum and sometimes rye in addition to barley. Flavorings like purple rice, Sichuan peppercorn, jasmine tea or bitter melons will for sure earn craft beer enthusiasts some bragging rights to take home with them. The craft beer scene in the two major cities shows steady growth, as more and more Chinese develop a taste for artisanal beers.

Starting in Beijing/China on September 24 and running through October 1, 2016, the tour will be limited to only 20 travelers who will experience many dynamic points of interest including The Great Wall and the Forbidden City. Additional treats will include a rickshaw ride through the old alley ways (hutongs) of Beijing and three days in the vibrant metropolis Shanghai round out the itinerary.

“Nobody has ever offered a tour to China quite like this one,” said Dieter F. Schneider, President of CST China Special Tours and noted expert on traveling to China. “On this 8-day trip, attendees will have the opportunity to explore unchartered territory and be pioneers; they will be exposed to both, ancient cultures and the modern ways now being embraced by the Chinese people.”

The package price of $1,699 (double occupancy) includes seven nights accommodation in superior four-star hotels, all meals, admissions, domestic transportation, English speaking guides, and much more. Airfare can be arranged and is currently available for less than $750 from/to Los Angeles.

CST China Special Tours is a California-based tour operator organizing customized group trips to China. The China experts create special interest itineraries for groups (culinary, martial arts, TCM, T’ai Chi, and many others), and organize meetings, incentives and retreats in China for major corporations as well as educational institutions.
