VIP Venues

As a leading provider in Asia travel, Peregrine Travel has very unique products that other tour operators cannot offer. Among these are VIP venues and opportunities that are otherwise not open to the public thanks to our special partnerships with the Chinese government.

We have access to many VIP venues NOT open to the public. We can include these VIP venues when we customize your tour–all part of a one-of-a-kind vacation that only Peregrine can provide.

The following are samples of selected VIP Venues in different cities in China.

Beijing

Shu Fang Zhai (漱芳斋)
Located in the famed Forbidden City, Shu Fang Zhai was used as a study by the most famous emperor of Qing Dynasty, Emperor Qianlong, who died in 1799. Around New Year’s Day, the emperor would accept congratulations from officials and invite them to the large stage to watch operas. From the first to the tenth day of the first lunar month during the Qianlong period (1736-1795), the emperor would choose an auspicious day to treat a small group of officials here with the tea of three purities: fingered citron, plum blossoms, and line nuts. Since 1925, the very year when the Palace Museum was established, Shu Fang Zhai was used as the VIP reception chamber for heads of states and dignitaries.

Hutong is composed by Siheyuan which the traditional residence of Beijingers, each consisting of a rectangular courtyard surrounded by one-storied tile-roofed houses, usually one to six meters wide.

Xi’an

Stone Stele Forest Museum
In ancient China, emperors wanted to make sure they did not lose the calligraphy of their most famous scholars, so they had their calligraphy engraved into stone steles, or stone tablets. This VIP opportunity allows clients to make an impression of one of the stone steles on a piece of rice paper, and then bring the copy home with them. This is a rare opportunity, as the Chinese government does not want a great deal of people making impressions of the stone steles for fear of wearing away the age-old calligraphy.

Shaanxi Archaeological Research Institute
This institute is the place that people first call when they find artifacts hidden in the ground. The institute then recovers them and restores them, including the Terracotta soldiers. Whereas in the Museum of Terracotta Warriors and Horses of Emperor Qin Shi Huang, you would only be able to view the lines of soldiers from afar, here, you will be able to see the Terracotta soldiers up close and even observe the details of individual lines on their palms.

White Glove Experience at the Xian Municipal Institute for Archaeological Research
For this experience, you will be taken to a locked vault in the Xian Municipal Institute for Archaeological Research, where they will bring out original artifacts from as long ago as 3000-5000 years. These are relics normally put in glass cases in museums, but our VIP clients will be able to don white gloves and hold the artifacts in their hands as the researchers explain the artifacts’ history.

 

Hangzhou

Vegetarian Meals in Lin Yin Temple
Vegetarian meals in Lin Yin Temple are the best vegetarian meal ever in Hangzhou. It does not open to the public, but if someone ever had the karma to taste the food there, it would be considered a very honorable experience. The ingredients are all strictly selected like the discipline of Buddhism. Cooking of the temple adopts folk vegetarian cooking skills and the essence of the royal family. And the knife using skill is extraordinarily delicate. Beside color, aroma and taste, the shape of each dish are wonderful and imitated the nature remarkably true to life. The clergy celebrities from Southeast Asia countries, who had meals in the abstinence hall, all praised the vegetarian food in Linyin Temple to the utmost.

VIP Seating at Impressions West Lake Show
“Impression West Lake” is a spectacle of light, music, dance and theatrics. Staged entirely upon the lake itself, a stage has been built 3 centimeters below the surface. The story is based on a Hangzhou legend. Using the lake and its surroundings as props, lights and hundreds of actors create a sensational performance. Hangzhou’s “Impression West Lake” is certainly not to be missed. At night, West Lake becomes the watery site of an imaginative, at times startling, multimedia show called “Impression West Lake” directed by Zhang Yimou, China’s most famous film director, the nightly performance is a skillfully crafted fusion of light, sound and movement.

Dragon Well Tea Village

Our VIP guests can enjoy picking tea leaves in the Spring and learn the process of roasting tea leaves after they’re picked.

If tea leaf picking is not available, we will take you to the Dragon Well Tea Village to enjoy tea tasting and talk to local farmers to learn about how tea is grown and picked.
 

Chengdu

The Chengdu Panda Breeding and Research Center
The Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding is a non-profit organization engaged in wildlife research, captive breeding, conservation education, and educational tourism. The Chengdu Panda Base was founded in 1987, with six giant pandas rescued from the wild. As of 2012, the captive population is around 100 individuals from that founding population of only six. Genetic diversity in the population is sustained by the exchange of preserved genetic material with other facilities. We are very proud that we have not taken any giant pandas from the wild for 20 years. This demonstrates our unique and uncompromising commitment to the conservation of the wild population and the healthy growth of the captive population.
