So to be honest, I have no real desire to go to China, but far be it for me to not pass on a VERY sweet deal.
So this website
has some great deals, the best being the 7 Day China Express for $588! That includes airfare and hotel from SFO. The $588 does not include taxes ($299) and your visa ($130). This is great for the person who wants to just go around on their own.
If you want more of a "structured" tour then they have a great tour that is $999 per person (plus tax and visa from SFO) that includes:
Roundtrip non-stop flights between San Francisco (SFO) or New York (JFK) and Beijing via Air China wide-body jet service
First class hotel accommodations including American breakfasts, and with private bath
All China internal air, ground transportations and transfers
Comprehensive private sightseeing tours including entrance fees
24 bountiful meals including 10 American buffet breakfast, 7 lunches and 7 dinners
Unique Culinary Events including an authentic Peking Duck dinner, a traditional Mongolian Barbecue buffet lunch
Special Evening Shows such as Chinese Acrobatics
Professional service of an expert, resident Tour Director throughout China for a group of 10 people or more
Professional local guiding service in each destination city
Baggage handling service throughout China
definetly a Super Sneaky Deal.
