Wendy Wu Tours has announced its first ‘mega-famil’ to China as interest in the destination steadily increases.

The group, which will be made up of 100 agents from Australia, New Zealand and the UK, will visit Zhangjiajie, the backdrop for the film Avatar. Founder Wendy Wu will also accompany the trip which takes place later this month.

The mixture of retailers and independent agents will stay in top hotels and enjoy exciting experiences, including seeing world class shows directed by Zhangyimou, director of the 2008 Beijing Olympics.

Starting in Chang Sha, voted as the number one city in China for nightlife, the group will then travel to Zhangjiajie where they will walk over the suspended glass walkway, zipline into the middle of the valley, ascend the mountain in a rocket lift and try a virtual reality hot air balloon ride.

“The Bailong Elevator, which travels 326 metres up one of the park’s 3,000 pillars, has won not one but three Guinness Book of World Records awards,” said Wendy Wu.

“It is the tallest full-exposure outdoor elevator, the world’s tallest double-deck sightseeing elevator and the world’s fastest passenger traffic elevator with the biggest carrying capacity. Our guests will love it.”

Attendees will also take a boat ride on the Baofeng Lake and watch shows staged inside Heaven’s Gate Cave leading to Tianmen Mountain, incorporating singing, dancing and acrobatics.

“We will have a full banquet afterwards. It’s going to blow our agent partners away,” said Ms Wu. “The scenery and the atmosphere are just spectacular.”
