Where to Go For China Tour?

China, a land of red pagodas, cosmopolitan cities, the breathtaking jagged peaked scenery of Guilin and the Yangtze River’s Three Gorges, the Great Wall, vast terracotta armies, fabulous food, colourful culture and more history than you can shake a stick at. Discover Confucianism, explore hanging temples, Buddhist caves and stone forests, climb mountains and cruise rivers, let on the go take you there!

Stretching more than 3,000 miles from the western shore of the Pacific Ocean across the face of Asia, China is a country of unlimited size and variety.

This vastness not only adds to the excitement of planning a trip to the country, but also to the confusion of which cities and regions to visit first. When planning a trip to China, be aware that you can't see "everything" in one start-to-finish, whirlwind trip, but if you want to fully experience the country, allow enough time to really experience it.

China is definitely the kind of place you will never feel enough to travel only for several times. It is best to visit the major sites and cities on the first trip, at a relaxed pace, then plan to explore the country region by region on subsequent trips when you can experience all the different ethnic minority cultures and archaeological wonders. Keep in mind that China is a land of extreme climatic variations.

For example during February you can travel the southern coast and enjoy tropical fruits, sunbathe on the beaches of Hainan Island or visit the Flower Festival in Guangdong. At the same time, in the north, Harbin is dazzling travelers at the annual Ice Sculpture Festival with giant ice pagodas, ice palaces, and cleverly sculpted panda bears. Meanwhile, Beijing is celebrating the Longqing Gorge Ice and Snow Festival with illuminated ice lanterns, spectacular fireworks, and ice fishing. Witnessing the grandeur of the Forbidden City in the snow is an extraordinary sight indeed.

There are more than 120 national scenic and tourist resorts across the land. The most famous ones are Beijing, Xi'an, Nanjing, Luoyang, Kaifeng, Hangzhou and Anyang, which are known as the nation's seven major ancient capitals.
