It may be daunting to plan a trip to China even if you have already experienced many travels abroad. If it is your first time to visit China, then here are some simple steps to help you in planning your trip.
The places in China where you want to go is the first thing that you should consider. You can go to Beijing, Xi’an, and Shanghai. If you have time, you can also visit Guilin and Chengdu. 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. Also consider the activities that you can do in those places.
If you want to see a city with a mix of the historical and the modern, then you should visit Beijing. The Forbidden City and the Great Wall are things to see in Beijing.
If you have a knack for history then Xi’an is another great destination. It was here that China began as a nation. When the first emperor ruled in China, this was the place where he set up his rule. 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. It has spectacular skyline with towering modern architecture. You can also tour the water towns of Hangzhou, Suzhou or Huangshan.
Guilin has picturesque scenery and has a minority culture in China. The landscape in this place is truly beautiful and it gives you a relaxing escape from the city. One of the things you can do here is to cruise the Li River to Yangshuo. If you are interested in the minority culture you can spend some days at the Longji Rice Terraces. You will also experience their tiered fields and get to experience the minority tribes of Zhuang and Yao.
Visitng Chengdu will make you experience the giant pandas. Here you can also taste great cuisine like the Spicy Sichuan hotpot.
So, after picking your destination, decide how long you will stay. If you don’t want to just scratch the surface of China, then a week would be ideal.
It is important to be aware of the gateway cities and China’s visa policy. Shangai and Beijing are the two gateway cities for your international flight. But there are those who would travel via HongKong.
The best time to travel to China should be considered. You can visit China’s cultural and historical attractions all year round. The things to do in these regions are not affected by the seasons. For a China tour, the most comfortable and highly recommended times are during spring and autumn or from April to October.
