This was the trip of a lifetime built around the Total Solar Eclipse of 22nd July 2009. This was to be the longest duration Solar Eclipse of the 21st Century with almost 6 minutes of totality from our viewing site in Haining Province, not very far from Shanghai. Travelling with Oriental Travel we had a whistle-stop itinerary covering Beijing, the Great Wall, Xian, Shanghai and more!
