hug.gif Recently, the tourism industry of China is booming. More and more people list China as their tourist destination. Why do you want to have a tour in China?

The first reason is its time-honored civilization. China is one of the four ancient civilizations, boasting 5000 years history, so there are lots of ancient sites and buildings scattered on the mysterious land. The world-famous Great Wall is the dreamy destination for many enthusiasts of travel. And every tourist who climbed the Great Wall can not help to be amazed at its ruggedness. The Forbidden City which is the palace for altogether 24 emperors in Ming and Qing Dynasty, displaying the extravagance of the imperial family by its more than 9000 rooms. The Terracotta Warriors in Xian, which is reputed as” world’s eighth Wonder”, represents ancient soldiers and arms of China.

The second reason is its abundant tourism resources. Besides unique imperial architecture, China has beautiful landscapes. Suzhou and Hangzhou is famous for its beautiful scenery. The old Chinese saying describe the two cities as" Up above there is heaven; down below there are Suzhou and Hangzhou". Guilin, another charming and popular tourist city, is famous for its beautiful mountains and clean waters. Cruise on Li River is one of the indispensable for tourists. The famous ancient towns south to the Yangtze River are captivating for its traditional customs and secluded tranquility. Cruising on the Yangtze River, you will have an unusual experience by floating through the cliffy mountains and torrential waters.

The third reason is its colorful customs and cultures. Yunnan is an ideal place for experiencing different and featured minority customs. The Tibet is attracting increasing tourists for its regional buildings and unique culture. Locating in the center of China, the Shaolin Temple is crowed by tourists who love martial arts and Chinese Kong Fu.

The four reason is Chinese people are very friendly to foreigners. They are always very pleased to help you. And accommodation in China is in reasonable price and different quality levels are waiting for your choice.

Why do you want to travel in China? What's your idea or impression of China?

Yeah i agree with you 100%. I've also been interested in the Chinese and Japanese culture for a long time, all my interests lie in 'China'. The chinese food, people, scenery, history, etc just fascinate me. biggrin.gif

Also another good thing about China is that it is very cheap the only problem is that it is expensive to get there.

For Westerners China is amazingly cheap. The flight of course is the biggest expense. Restaurants and hotels can be quite expensive, but cheap ones are also available if you shop around. I'd recommend hostels and local restaurants. Go online and do some research. The nice thing about hostels is that there are usually many backpackers there who have been in the city for a few days and can recommend cheap and good restaurants.

Once again; thanks tongue.gif
I've been working my a__ off and saving up, i can afford a plane ticket and will have quite a bit of money left over at the moment.
I also agree with the hostels, it seems like a great way to meet people who are doing similar traveling activities. Some of the hostels i've researched look like quite comfortable places to stay and for good prices, if i'm not staying with my friend i think a hostel will be my number 1 choice. speak_cool.gif

I can give you a list of hostels I have used. I have tested a lot of them in my travels. Some are fantastic, and some are horrid. I'll tell you which ones I liked and which ones to avoid. The information is at home and will take a couple days to put together.

That would be very helpful if you could do so. I would be very pleased to receive information like this from someone who has experienced it first-hand.
Thank you for being so thoughtful smile.gif

My pleasure. I'll do it, it might take me a while though. I'm really swamped with work because of the upcoming Spring Festival. I'm going to start a new post to put hostel reviews. I think it'd be useful for everybody.

Best time to travel to China is April and October.


I think this depends on where you go and your personal comfort levels.

Visiting the south of China during the summer months is sweltering and almost unbearable. Some parts of China are wonderful in the winter. Visiting Huangshan Mountain, the Great Wall, and the Harbin Ice and Snow Festival are absolutely fantastic in winter.

I personally feel that spring and autumn are the best times to visit most places.

south-west China is the region where most travelers go to, or those who get there prefer to other parts - less people, more minorities, less pollution, friendlier, warmer, cheaper.
Also good access to Laos, Vietnam, Thailand.
