It’s not often that a once-in-a-lifetime deal comes around twice-in-a-lifetime. But that’s exactly what happened this week, when Friendly Planet Travel, one of the Internet’s leading group travel providers, responded to popular demand by bringing back its ultra-low-cost Taste of China vacation deal for a second time. The package, starting at just $999, visits three of China’s most dynamic and culturally awe-inspiring cities: Beijing, Xi’an, and Shanghai. The trip includes round-trip airfare and all transportation; deluxe hotel accommodations; some meals; and comprehensive sightseeing with a local, English-speaking expert guide. Taste of China is the lowest-priced China vacation package available from the U.S. Travelers can also choose from an array of inexpensive optional tours plus a four-day extension in Hong Kong.“Even I was surprised when we watched how quickly our Taste of China tours sold out when we first made it available in April,” says Peggy Goldman, President of Friendly Planet Travel. “And no wonder. In my 30 years in the travel business, I’ve never seen such superior travel and accommodations at a price like that. As the available dates disappeared before our eyes, and the outstanding reviews came pouring in, we knew we had to work hard to make the $999 price available again, and we had to do it quickly.”China is one of the most attractive travel destinations in the world, with modern achievements interwoven with an ancient culture, and a recorded history spanning over 5,000 years. The tour, conducted by English-speaking, Chinese guides, immerses vacationers in the country’s rich culture and history, starting with the capital, Beijing, where the group visits such important sites as Tiananmen Square, the Forbidden City, and the Great Wall of China.For more information about Friendly Planet Travel, please visit the company’s Web site at www.FriendlyPlanetTravel.com, the blog at http://friendlyplanettravel.com/blog, or contact Jackie Zima at 610-228-2138 (office), 215-534-2973 (mobile), or write to Jackie@GregoryFCA.com.
