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 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. Guilin, and Chengdu are other great places that you can also visit. Choose places that will interest you much. Research on these areas and consider where you really want to go. Make sure to check out what activities you can do in these places.
In Beijing you will see both historical and modern places. 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. China’s first emperor ruled here. 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. Hangzhou, Suzhou or Huangshan are water towns that you can tour.
If you want some picturesque scenery then you can visit Guilin where a Chinese minority lives. You can see many beautiful landscapes and you can escape from the city to relax here. You can cruise the Li River to Yangshuo. At the Longji Rice Terraces you will find a minority culture where you can spend some days. This is where they plant in tiered fields and you can get to meet the Zhuang and Yao minorities.
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. 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. Beijing and Shanghai are the top gateway cities for international flights. You can also enter China via Hong Kong.
Also consider the best time to travel to China. You can visit China’s cultural and historical attraction any time of the year. 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.
