San Francisco — 3 nights

City by the Bay

San Francisco is a top holiday destination featuring scenic beauty and great ethnic and cultural diversity.
San Francisco is known for sightseeing, nature, and parks. Your trip includes some of its best attractions: snap pictures at Golden Gate Bridge, make a trip to Ferry Building Marketplace, head off the coast to Alcatraz Island, and take in the waterfront at Fisherman's Wharf.

To find reviews, photos, more things to do, and other tourist information, go to the San Francisco visit planning site.

Beijing, China to San Francisco is an approximately 15.5-hour flight. Traveling from Beijing to San Francisco, you'll gain 16 hours due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Beijing in August, expect San Francisco to be slightly colder, temps between 26°C and 17°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 4th (Sun) to allow enough time to drive to Napa.
