Can I buy a ticket at site instead of booking it in advance?
Yes, you can. However, you may meet with some difficulties. In many scenic areas, the staff do not speak English, so you need to take language barrier into consideration. Besides, long queues for buying entrance ticket are common in popular attractions, especially during Chinese public holidays. The last but not the least, many scenic areas limit the number of tickets sold at site per day. If you get there late, the ticket is possibly not available. Therefore, we strongly recommend you to book a ticket online in advance to guarantee a smooth trip.
How far in advance should I book a ticket?
After you have made out a China travel itinerary, you can start the booking of admission tickets for scenic areas involved. Generally speaking, most scenic areas of China release tickets seven days ahead of the entry date, and we can grasp it as soon as possible. The latest time you can book is the day before your intended travel.
