LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Feb. 19, 2013) - Mercury Direct has expanded its range of holidays to start selling its first fully escorted tour to China following increased demand from holiday makers for a more structured type of holiday. Having once sold garden tours to France, and escorted tours to Japan, they are knowledgeable in the art of what makes a successful tour.
The China Discovery Tour visits the three major cities of Shanghai, Xi'an and Beijing giving travellers the chance to visit some of the most iconic sights including the Great Wall, the Terracotta Army and the Forbidden City.
Martin Bugeja, Managing Director of Mercury Direct said "I am extremely proud to launch this tour of China. I've personally visited every hotel, met all the local guides and explored the sights to ensure that every aspect meets the high quality standards which our clients expect.
All the hotels are rated four stars, and all meals, transfers and excursions are included in our extremely competitive selling price of just £1095pp for 6 nights / 8 days."
What's more, there are even two places available on each date with no single supplement to cater for Mercury Direct's growing single traveller market.
For those who wish to take in more of this fascinating country, Mercury Direct has provided two equally tempting extension options. The first is a 3 night stay in Chengdu, home to the Chengdu Panda Breeding Centre where travellers will get the chance to visit one of the world's most endangered species - the giant pandas. Alternatively guests can carry on exploring the bustling metropolis of Hong Kong. There are endless attractions to visit; from the Big Buddha, to Ocean Park to the lively Ladies' Market.
Knowing what to pack on a trip like this can be difficult, but Mercury Direct makes the following handy suggestions: sunscreen and hat in the summer months, warm clothing and thermals in winter, comfortable walking shoes, and the all-important camera and binoculars.
While traditional package holidays, such as Mercury Direct's Malta Holidays, are still as popular as ever, there is an increasing demand from people looking to experience more of the culture of the country they are visiting. By offering this tour, as well as their wealth of experience organising holidays to Malta and other destinations, Mercury Direct say holiday makers will get the experience of a lifetime at unrivalled value for money.
