The capital city, Beijing, is filled with palaces, temples, and monuments. Do not miss the Forbidden City, and a day trip to the nearby Great Wall of China.
Huge and hectic Shanghai boasts the world’s longest metro and the second tallest building. Be sure to take a stroll along The Bund, Shanghai’s busy waterfront boulevard.
Filled with skyscrapers and people, the small island of Hong Kong packs a mighty punch. Eat dim sum and explore Victoria’s Peak, rounding the day out with a cruise on a traditional Hong Kong junk boat.
The main attraction in Xian is the cities collection of terracotta warriors. While they are impressive and well worth your time, be sure to also take in the city’s museums, and try learning some Chinese calligraphy.
This is China’s panda capital and home to the rich and spicy Sichuan cuisine. Be sure to try the hot pot.
Zhangjiajie National Park
Thick forest and sandstone peaks make up Zhangjiajie national park, China’s first of its kind and one of the most spectacular natural areas you’ll find.
Hot springs and pine trees complement the peaks of Mount Huangshan, China’s Yellow Mountain, and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Limestone hills and the River Li are the main attractions of any trip to Guiling, one of China’s natural beauty gems.
Given the sheer size of China, one will find very diverse weather conditions. In the wintertime temperatures are bitterly cold in much of the country, while in the summer they can swelter. In the springtime, there are milder temperatures, although the south of the country will experience some rain.
Best time for sightseeing in China
Autumn is the best time to visit China, with the best combination of agreeable temperature and weather, plus fewer crowds than in summer. If you want to visit the mountainous areas, including the Tibetan Plateau, summer is the optimal time to visit.
Before you Go
Visa and passport requirements
Most travelers will have to apply for an L tourist visa that allows travel to most parts of China for up to 30 days. US and Canadian citizens can apply for a multiple-visit 10-year visa.
Air pollution can be a major issue for travelers in China and tap water is generally not safe to drink.
Dengue fever is present in some parts of the country. Outbreaks of disease are treated quickly and efficiently in China, with a rapid quarantine system preventing spread.
There is a small amount of petty crime in China that targets tourists, though with harsh consequences from the authorities this isn’t as prevalent as it might be in other countries nearby.
Violent crime targeting tourists is almost nonexistent but, like always, do not leave drinks unattended and ride in unmarked taxis.
There are incidents of violence in both the Tibet Autonomous Region, and the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, and precautions must be taken before traveling in those areas.
MC Luxury Travel Group includes comprehensive travel insurance on all luxury Chinese holidays.
Customs and etiquette in China: greet strangers with a handshake, but don’t make it too strong as that can be offensive. It is considered respectful to join in when your host makes a toast, and when eating from buffets taste all the dishes and leave some on your plate as a sign of respect.
Stay calm and be respectful at all times and ensure that your hosts don’t “lose face” as this is among the worst things that can happen to a Chinese person.
Mealtimes: breakfast is usually around 7 am, and consists of soya milk, rice noodles, porridge, and deep-fried dough sticks. Obviously, in your hotels, there will be other options available.
Lunch is taken between 12-2 pm and is often followed by an afternoon nap. A typical lunch might consist of noodles or rice and some meat and vegetables, depending on the cuisine of the area you are visiting.
Dinner is the main meal in China and usually eaten before 8 pm. Dinner is the main meal of the day, and it isn’t uncommon for there to be a variety of plates eaten. Also, expect Chinese people to remain at their table chatting and socializing for up to 30 minutes after eating.
