DETAILED DECRIPTION

China’s mystical heritage is transposed into handcrafted sculptures, digital masterpieces, graphic design and aesthetic paintings – resulting in unrivaled creations. Amid the 1.3 billion people, you will encounter quiet spaces brimming with carefully constructed artwork throughout all four stops of your adventure across China. In Beijing, you will find a synchronized balance between hushed viewings and popular, must-see attractions; in Suzhou, you will be enveloped by breathtaking scenery, which is highlighted by lush garden beds and the stream stretching through middle of the city; in Shenzhen – the urban hub for shoppers and extravagant restaurants – you will be enraptured by its futuristic modern style and architecture; and in Taipei you will find that its contemporary, yet peculiar interpretations will perfectly tie together your exploration through China’s finest artistic venues.

DAY-TO-DAY

DAY 1: Beijing

The unveiling of China’s artistic collection begins in the city where modernized culture meets ancient spectacles: Beijing. Upon arrival, you’ll check into either the elegant and modern-styled Opposite House or Summer House, which is surrounded by eloquent courtyards. You will be free to spend the evening at your leisure, whether that be enjoying a lavish sit-down dinner at your hotel, or strolling through the city collecting snapshots of Beijing’s lifestyle.

DAY 2: Beijing

Commence your day of exploring with an expert-led promenade to Caochangdi Art Village. City sounds will disperse as the sophisticated brick structures of Galerie Urs Meile envelop you. Following lunch at Guardian Auction House, you will travel to the Red Gate Gallery, the primary privatized contemporary art gallery in China, brimming with alluring depictions of its home country.

DAY 3: Beijing

Today starts with a walk led by an arts connoisseur into the 798 district, which harks back to the 1950’s Mao communist era, and is layered with a variety of artistic expression, such as statues, slogans, machinery, street art, and avant-garde contemporary images. After delighting in Beijing’s most popular collection of galleries, you’ll escape the mainstream scene and venture towards the grassroots-inspired Hutong Galleries. Enjoy an afternoon sauntering through the studios on the fringes of the city, where structures seamlessly blend artistic vision with everyday living.

DAY 4: Suzhou

Begin your day with a two-and-a-half-hour flight to Shanghai and a short to the lush natural landmarks nestled in Suzhou. After checking in at Lamborghini Pan Pacific Hotel, embark on an expedition admiring the Asian-constructed cottages, an array of flora, and the creek bending in harmony with the path of the Humble Administrator's Garden. The next destination brings you to the ancient Chinese artefacts decorating Suzhou Museum, followed by an evening stroll alongside the freshwater avenue of Pinjiang Road.

DAY 5: Suzhou

After breakfast, head to the non-profit Jinji Lake Art Museum and discover the creative magic of Chinese and international artists alike. From Jinji Lake, move onwards to the masterpieces fashioned by British and South African illustrators in the Lan Art Gallery. Take a midday break and peek into shops along Shatang Street. Sip a cup of tea at a calligrapher's studio, followed by a visit to either the True Color Museum – home to recently created modern art – or the Pantocrator Gallery, for unique depictions of human activity.

DAY 6: Shenzhen

The day commences with a journey from Suzhou to Shenzhen. On arrival your private transfer will drive to the Ritz-Carlton Hotel - a perfect haven for art enthusiasts who adore tasteful minimalistic features. After check-in, you will have the freedom to plan your afternoon, whether that be relaxing at the hotel’s spa or venturing out into Shenzhen's metropolis of high-end shopping.

DAY 7: Shenzhen

While still in Shenzhen, you’ll visit OCT-LOFT arts district, a microcosm of Beijing’s 798, with its blend of uniquely crafted structures, vibrant graffiti designs on buildings, and galleries. Afterwards, uncover the work of China’s avant-garde elitists at the He Xiangning Art Gallery. From there, you will travel to OCT Art & Design Gallery, a warehouse filled with futuristic and groundbreaking discoveries in graphic and spatial design. Complete your day with a visit to MoCAPE, a museum rich with architectural structures.

DAY 8: Taipei

Before journeying among Taipei’s landmarks - a combination of historical tributes with artistic decor - you will embark on a short flight from Shenzhen. You will travel from the five-star Mandarin Oriental to MOCA, Taiwan’s premier contemporary art museum, which is quickly becoming a hub for digital artisans and unique-minded craftsman. Complete your afternoon of explorations by losing yourself in China’s cultural heritage, catapulted by the sophisticated yet simplistic creations decorating the Tina Keng Gallery.

DAY 9: Taipei

Begin your day with a visit to Treasure Hill Artist Village – amidst the pleasurable walking lanes and scenic surroundings are a selection of art studios. Afterwards, immerse yourself in Taipei Fine Arts Museum. On the second floor of the grande museum, you will find their “Jewels of 25 Years Museum Collection”. Conclude your artistic adventure at the Huashan 1914 Creative Park where you can watch a live interpretive story under the roof of a formerly abandoned brewery.

DAY 10: Departure

Depart from the Mandarin Oriental hotel to the airport via our private transfer to your next port of call, whether starting your journey home or onwards to your next Asian destination.
