Imperial Tours is freshening up its itinerary offerings with new experiences and destinations, including Jazz Night in Shanghai; 'In Conversation' with a former rocket factory girl; Exploring Macau; and the new St. Regis in Lhasa.
Jazz Night allows visitors to explore a favorite 1930s stomping ground in Shanghai - the Peace Hotel, where Victor Sassoon once held his famous balls. The outing ends at a modern jazz club so music lovers can compare the past with the present.
'In Conversation' follows the tale of a Nanjing native who was pulled out of school at age 16 and began her 10-year stint at a rocket factory. Now she is a factory-worker-turned writer, journalist and social commentator.
Take a trip to the former Portuguese colony of Macau, where travelers can visit the Barrier Gate, A-Ma Temple, St. Paul's Cathedral and Senado Square.
Finally, the new St. Regis is causing quite a buzz in Lhasa. Visit the 162-room luxury property with its diverse restaurants, spa and proximity to Potala Palace and Jokhang Temple
