22 - 30 Aug 2015
Beijing is hosting the major athletics event of next summer an opportunity to visit or, if you were there in 2008 for the Olympics, revisit the famous Birds Nest stadium. As once again we were the first overseas agent to visit the city we are in prime position to offer track and field fans the optimal arrangements to this fascinating venue. We have already booked the prime stadium ticket locations having met the local organisers and had our requests reconfirmed.
We are delighted to offer a good selection of hotels to cover all budgets having inspected them in May 2014 and have secured first class contracts in properties that match recognised western standards and that are contemporary in style.
Our Beijing packages are for 11, 10, 7, 5 or 3 nights: extra nights available too.
Optional China group tours and individual add-on package options are available plus stopover packages en route to or returning back after the event.
Our comprehensive programme is designed to meet all fans’ requirements.
At the last four World Championships in Osaka, Berlin, Daegu and Moscow we have organised the largest single groups of track & field enthusiasts from Britain or any other country attending the championships. We look forward to offering track & field fans the benefit of our experience and our optimum service in Beijing in 2015
Join us and learn… the art of BEING THERE!
