China Travel FAQs

What is the best time to visit China?

As a vast nation, the weather varies greatly from north to south and east to west. But generally speaking, the best time for travelling in China falls in Spring and Autumn as summer can be hot and winter is chilly. Thanks to China’s large area, there are wonderful places to explore in summer like Tibet, Silk Road cities, and Shangri-La in Yunnan. Winter as well enjoys fantastic views and what’s even better, all places tend to be quieter with lower prices. For the top cities of Beijing, Xi’an and Shanghai, anytime of the year is a wonderful time to visit as there is less impact to weather conditions.

Do we need tour guides for a China trip?

Yes, tour guides are recommended. China is a large country with many differences in varied aspects. Mega cities like Beijing and Shanghai are comparatively easy to explore as there are English signs of places (though you might find some shocking ones translated from Chinese). But travelers still find it hard when it comes to discovering history, getting authentic food, understanding local culture and communicating with local people.

How far ahead should I book with you?

2 months ahead of your travel date is suggested. You could confirm your booking in time when you are satisfied with the tour package to guarantee smooth bookings, reservations and entry visa submission. We have handled many urgent bookings within 2 weeks successfully. We also have many clients who plan and confirm their trips a year ahead.

Is tipping popular in China?
