China is a travel destination that despite being well known still holds a lot of mystery; it’s a country of vast diversity and culture. There’s a lot more to this vibrant country than meets the eye, and because of this, unless you have actually visited it, it’s impossible to get an authentic understanding of what China is like. So it’s time to forget your takeaway, regardless of how good it might taste, and head to China to get an authentic taste of what this intriguing country has to offer.
How long to go for
There’s no doubt about it, China is a big place, which is why when it comes to how long to visit for it depends on how much of the country you want to see. If you are just planning on visiting one area, then a few days to a week should be plenty of time. However, if you want to travel around and see more of this incredible country, then anything from two weeks to a few months could be a good amount of time to spend there – it all depends on what you plan on doing during your stay.
Where to stay
Like most places, China has a wide range of accommodation options, depending on where you choose to visit, that is. In urban areas, there is plenty of accommodation options, from fancy hotels to cheaper motel accommodation. In rural areas, the accommodation on offer is more limited, but there’s still some choice, so whatever your budget there’s sure to be somewhere that is suitable.
What to do
What you choose to do while in China will depend on a range of factors, from the time that you are there for to your budget and personal preferences. As well as exploring China’s main towns and cities, like the capital city of Beijing, there are also other sights and attractions to visit. These include the Great Wall of China, the country’s many temples, such as the Temple of Heaven, the Ming Tombs, and the wilder areas of the country, such as the wilderness surrounding Mount Everest. Obviously, if you are going to explore wild areas, it’s best to book a tour, such as one of these Tibet tour packages, to ensure that you stay safe while traveling. China is, on the whole, a safe place to travel, but out in the wilderness there are threats, such as getting lost, so visiting these areas as part of a tour group is the best option.
Who to travel with
When it comes to who to travel with, that will most probably depend on two things: your personal preference and what you plan on doing. If you have a friend who loves the wilderness and adventure and you are planning on trekking to Mount Everest Base Camp, they could make the perfect travel companion. However, traveling with someone who’s out of shape or isn’t a keen adventurer could be a mistake. If there’s no one who fancies a trip to China with you, then you could, of course, opt to travel solo. It might sound daunting, but it’s not as scary as you think.
China is somewhere that every traveler should visit at one point or another in their lives, as it’s just such an incredible place.
