China Tours are becoming increasingly popular and a growing number of travel operators are offering China tour packages with budget rates to those who desire to explore the mystery of this ancient oriental nation. Some people try to book and design their own China tours, but find it too difficult, considering all the arrangements needed: visa application, flights, hotel reservation, entrance fees, local transport, food and so on. The best way by far is to deal with a travel company that can offer you the personal attention if you want to enjoy your travel to Beijing and everywhere else in China you want to visit. Let's think about what good China vacations should involve, apart from the personal service and customized Itinerary.
China vacations involve more than just travel to Beijing - the country and many of China's secrets that have been hidden from western eyes for so long have been open to the world in the past decade. Many Chinese vacations stop at Beijing, or perhaps include a brief visit to the Wall. Travel to Beijing is a must, with a visit to the Great Wall, Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square, Summer Palace and Temple of Heaven. Performances in Beijing, such as Peking Opera, Acrobatics, Kungfu Show, are also worth your time, as is a delicious meal of Peking duck! If you want explore more, everybody has heard of the terracotta warriors in Xian. Chengdu is another good choice, where you can see a real live panda. Also, don't forget that China has the holy land of Tibet. You could pay a visit to Lhasa and see Mount Everest and the palaces of the Dalai Lama. All China tours should allow you to spend some time on one of China's many rivers, either to view the grand landscape of this country along the Yangtze River Cruise or to watch the cormorants that are trained to dive for fish on Li River in Guilin. A tour to Shanghai should also be included on your itinerary, along with a cruise down the Huangpu River.
The main problem with Chinese vacations is that if you want anything more than just to travel to Beijing, you can't just head off anywhere you want when you feel like it. Generally, China tours are best organized in advance with a good travel company experienced in providing you with personal and comprehensive travel service to make sure that you visit as many places as possible in the time available to you.
