Trip Planning FAQs

What to see in China for first time travelers?

China is a vast land with abundant tourism resources. For first time travelers, the top travel destinations of Beijing, Xian, Guilin, Shanghai and the Yangtze Cruise are recommended. As ancient capitals, both Beijing and Xian boast fantastic cultural and historic relics, such as the Great Wall, the Forbidden City and the Terracotta Warriors. Guilin is well known for its superb natural beauty, with Li River flowing through an amazing landscape resembling a scroll-painting. A relaxing cruise on the Yangtze River allows people to immerse themselves in the wonder of the natural surroundings. Shanghai, an international metropolis, best shows the country's pulsating modern development as well as its olden-day charms. In the light of the above, you can combine visits to these cities as you wish to create your China holiday tours.

For a second time traveler, what are the recommended destinations?

If you wish to go further on your second trip, you may consider visiting some regions with distinctive features. For panda lovers, Chengdu will satisfy your desire to observe these cute creatures in their natural habitat. In addition, it provides easy access to the magical Jiuzhaigou. Tibet is a good option for those who are interested in learning about Tibetan Buddhism and seeking out the mystery of this unique land. Cities in southwestern region like Kunming, Dali, Lijiang, Shangri-la, Guiyang, Kaili, and Zhaoxing are also popular for their rich ethnic minorities' folklore and customs. If you are curious about the Silk Road culture, you can visit Dunhuang, Turpan, Urumqi, Kashgar and more cities depending on your trip duration. For those who like mountain sceneries, Zhangjiajie and Mt. Huangshan are indeed visual delights. The above mentioned are only partial lists, our travel consultants are ready here to customize a private China tour package to meet your needs.

When planning a China tour for seniors, should I choose private tours or small group packages?

Choosing between the two for a senior's trip to China ultimately depends on personal preferences and needs. Private tours excel in terms of flexibility and personalized care, with a dedicated guide and driver catering exclusively to your needs. This allows you to tailor the itinerary to your specific requirements and set your own pace while traveling.

On the other hand, small group packages offer more social interaction and cost-effectiveness. With a fixed itinerary and departure date, you'll share the guide and vehicle with other tourists. While this may limit your flexibility, it also presents the opportunity to meet interesting fellow travelers, often at a more economical price.

What is the best time to travel to China?

China is a vast country with wide-ranging climatic conditions, so a decision about the best time to visit should be based on the regions you plan to visit and the kind of weather you enjoy. Generally speaking, late March to May in spring, September and October in autumn are the best months to visit most of the cities. Try to avoid travelling during the National Day Holiday from Oct 1st to Oct 7th as all sightseeing spots are very crowded. For visitors who want to save money and enjoy sightseeing without interference by tourist crowds, you can plan your private China tours in the winter season from December to February.

How much would a trip to China cost?

The prices will range widely depending on the destinations, durations and your demands for comfort. Let's take one of the most popular itineraries as an example, 8 days Beijing, Xian and Shanghai. It will cost about USD1600 per person on the basis of a private China land tour for two people with 4-star accommodation and domestic flights in between. For travelers who start your 2024 China tours from USA, Canada, UK, Australia, Germany, Spain, France, etc, international flights are not included.

Many travelers also take the high speed trains instead of flights to save the cost and enhance the travel experience, which has been proved to be an awesome choice. No matter how much you want to spend on a trip, as the best China tour company we are always happy to tailor make a private tour itinerary that best fits your needs. In addition, our early bird discount can also help you save more.
