How to Plan a Trip to China

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 first thing to consider is the places where you want to go. 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.

You will discover much of China’s history in Xi’an. Here is the place where 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.

If you visit Shanghai, then you are visiting the largest and showiest city of China. This the modern city has a great skyline with 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. 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.

If you want to see giant pandas, then you should visit Chengdu. If you want to taste a great cuisine like the Spicy Sichuan hotpot, then Chengdu is the place to go.

The number of days you will stay in China should be decided on next. If you don’t want to just scratch the surface of China, then a week would be ideal.

You should be aware of the gateway cities and the visa policy of China. Beijing and Shanghai are the top gateway cities for international flights. Hong Kong is also a gateway city for entering China.

One of your considerations should be the best time to travel to China. You can visit China’s cultural and historical attractions all year round. If you will do anything in these regions, seasons don’t affect it. The most comfortable and highly recommended times for a China tour are during spring and autumn or from April to October.
