Ancient history & fascinating culture make China a must-visit. Stroll the Great Wall & be dwarfed by the high-rises of Hong Kong & Shanghai. Get up close to the mystic limestone karsts of Yangshuo before being amazed by Xi’an’s famous & incredible Terracotta Army. When you’re not walking in the footsteps of emperors, see this amazing country from a different angle, like on the back of a rickshaw or bike!
I am travelling from the UK to the USA for the Grand Southern tour which means I will be there for 30 days in total. I have a UK passport and I believe this makes me eligible to apply for a visa waiver for travelling to USA. Has anyone ever used a visa waiver for a USA trip with Contiki? Should I apply for a visa waiver or a tourist visa? I am unsure because I will be travelling around USA not staying in one place for the whole time. Will I need to give all the hotel addresses to apply? I have tried looking on the visa waiver website and am still a little confused so any advice would be appreciated. Thanks Glenda
