Full description
Start your day bright and early at 6:00 AM in the lobby of your Downtown located accommodation. Here your driver will be waiting for you holding a placard with your name on it. After a short meet and greet you will be transferred to Xian North Railway Station to catch the G1900 train (7:35 AM - 9:08 AM) or similar train from Xian to Luoyang.

Upon your arrival in Luoyang, your local guide and driver will meet you at the railway station and take you to Longmen Grottoes, a treasure house of ancient stone-carving art with over 100,000 stone statues varying from 2-cm to 17.14 meters high. After you have enjoyed some lunch you will head towards the famous Shaolin Temple, a place famous for its Shaolin Kung Fu. Whilst here you will have a chance to witness real Kung Fu performed by Shaolin monks. Shaolin Temple is not only famous for Kung Fu but is also considered one of China's most important Buddhist temples. 

After visiting these monumental attractions, your guide will take you to the Railway Station to catch the G2027 (7:20 PM - 8:39 PM) or similar train back to Xian. Upon your arrival back in Xian, you will be picked up at the service centre of the train station and transferred back to your Xian hotel.
