Event Location : NANJING, China
Tour Code: TFCHN1/2020
13 - 15 March 2020
The IAAF World Indoor Athletics Championships is being held in Nanjing in China – the first time this emerging athletics nation has hosted the world’s major indoor athletics championships. The brand new Cube Arena is a multi-purpose venue and has a very limited capacity of just 3,000 seats which in a city with a population of 8.5 million means tickets will be at a premium.
T&FT has secured tickets before they go on general sale in January 2020.
TOUR PROGRAMME OPTIONS:
Our Final Programme options offer a choice of either a 4 or 5 night’s stay in Nanjing based at the very well located 5* Nanjing hotel with a pre or post-event add-on tour option to Shanghai which is the major international airport for the region to which there are a good number of flights. It is possible to fly to Nanjing indirectly too. We were also going to offer a post-event add-on package to Hong Kong but in light of current events this is no longer an option we would advise. We can offer ad hoc add-ons to Beijing or other international stop-over options upon request to make the most of your trip to the event.
OPT 1: 11 – 16 March 2020 6 Days / 5 Nights
OPT 2: 12 – 16 March 2020 5 Days / 4 Nights
