How to Plan a Trip to China
If you have already experienced traveling abroad, then you will still feel it a challenge to plan your first trip to China. If you are traveling to China for the first time, then you could use some helpful tips to help you plan your trip.
The first thing to consider is the places where you want to go. You can go to Beijing, Xi’an, and Shanghai. Guilin, and Chengdu are other great places that you can also visit. Make sure that you go to places that will interest you. It is good to research these areas so you will know the places that you really want to go. Make sure to check out what activities you can do in these places.
Include Beijing in your itinerary if you want to see a mix of history and modernity. Sights to see in Beijing are the Forbidden City and the Great Wall of China.
If you have a knack for history then Xi’an is another great destination. Here is the place where China began as a nation. This is the place where the first emperor of China ruled. This is the place of the famous grand Terracotta Army, the Wild Big Goose Pagodas, and the Great Mosque.
Shanghai is the largest and showiest city of China. The city is full of towering buildings. You can also tour the water towns of Hangzhou, Suzhou or Huangshan.
If you want some picturesque scenery then you can visit Guilin where a Chinese minority lives. It has a beautiful landscape and a relaxing escape from the city. You can cruise the Li River to Yangshuo. You can spend some days at the Longji Rice Terraces where you can find a minority culture. You will also experience their tiered fields and get to experience the minority tribes of Zhuang and Yao.
Chengdu is home to the giant pandas. In Chengdu you also get to taste great cuisine like the Spicy Sichuan hotpot.
So, after picking your destination, decide how long you will stay. Staying in a China for a week is ideal if you just don’t want to scratch China’s surface.
You should be aware of the gateway cities and the visa policy of China. For international flights, you can go to gateway cities like Beijing and Shanghai. You can also enter China via Hong Kong.
Also consider the best time to travel to China. Throughout the year it is ideal to visit China’s cultural and historical attraction. The things to do in these regions are not affected by the seasons. The most comfortable and highly recommended times for a China tour are during spring and autumn or from April to October.
