Tour Details

Why will you pick up this trip?

You’ll visit the most popular places preferred by international visitors when traveling in China, covering villages, smaller towns, to historic and innovated cities. 

With this trip, you almost circle around most of the iconic world heritage in the north, northwest, east and southeast of China, like the largest palace in Beijing, and the Great Wall beyond Beijing, amazing religious grottoes in Datong, Shanxi Province, Terracotta Warrior in Xi’an, modern Shanghai linking to gentle water town, picturesque Wuyi Mountains and a romantic island with hustle-bustle young entrepreneurs facing the South China Sea. 

Try different authentic food in each place. They are waiting for you to try, such as juicy buns, wheat-made noddle in beef or lamb stock, or fruity wood-flavored roast duck, and other Chinese food which are rarely found in China Town. 

The best way to travel around China is by bullet train, seeing a wider variety of natural view on the road. 

Does the trip suit you?
There are lots of walks and transfers by public transports including overnight trains, guesthouses and hotels. Keep in mind that conditions and facilities will vary in different places. 

You should be active to decide your own food on the road. 

On the public transport, it is the best space to meet and communicate with the local and feel their daily habits which may look bizarre to you. 

Climate varies in different parts of China. It is always dry in the north and northwest and humid in the east and southeast. It could be extremely hot during the summer.
