The trip.me way of travel
Whether it’s the vastly growing metropolis’ of Beijing and Shanghai that you’re after or the ancient discovery along the iconic Great Wall of China, China tours offer some of the most diverse itineraries and travel pursuits in the world.
Great food – check. Great history – check. Great people – check. Great experience – check.
Calling China vast is a massive understatement. If you are planning to travel to China, be sure to allow for a few separate trips to ensure you complete the ultimate experience, but for now lets focus on your interests.
If it is stunning scenery you’re after, China offers that in abundance. You only need to follow the trail of the great wall, then to deviate into one of China’s romantic bamboo forests, climb atop one of its prodigious mountain tops, sail down an eerie, misty river gorge, get lost in the mind-boggling Stone forest or simply traverse the picturesque rice terraces to realize the aesthetic offerings right in front of you on your China tours.
Time to become insignificant in the mist of millions of other entities as you get lost between skyscrapers in futuristicShanghai. Marvel at the groundbreaking architecture where monumental skyscrapers creep over ancient temples and monasteries, a constant reminder of how fast Shanghai is moving forward.
As it gets dark you will witness Shanghai as its greatest, when neon lights illuminate the glamour and office workers flood into restaurants for hours on end, to either catch up with friends or talk even more business over a stretch of courses.
The Chinese capital of Beijing is electrifying. Always changing but still manages to maintain its imperial charm, Beijing never slips under the radar of any travelers. On your China tours, Beijing should be the focal point for food, shopping and most importantly, a visit to the Forbidden City, a huge ancient citadel right in the middle of Beijing that showcases the beauty of ancient Chinese architecture and ceramic work. An array of mind-blowing palaces, this complex must not be missed on your China tours.
Not only this, but the Great Wall of China also runs just north of the scintillating capital. So hop on the trail and take a walk through time, gazing along the way at the phenomenal scenery on offer, stopping at provincial towns and walking in the footsteps of past emperors.
Chinese food, like the country itself, is diverse, innovative and appealing in so many ways.
You are probably familiar with Chinese cuisine from ordering a takeaway with your family and friends on a Saturday night or from many of the fabulous China towns around the world in big cities, but nothing compares to the authenticity of Chinese food in a dimly lit, backstreet eatery in China.
From fried dumplings to the incredible tasting seaweed to the shredded duck to the crispy shrimps, China has it all and it masters every single dish.
The staple accompaniment to these elaborate dishes would either be rice or noodles mainly, whether it’s egg noodles or fried rice, it will certainly come with a remarkable source or array of side dishes.
Soups are also very common. Like that in Vietnam, Cambodia and elsewhere in South East Asia, Chinese soups also features a lot of spices and fresh vegetables making for a healthy, wholesome and rewarding dish at the end of a long day. Alternatively, smaller soups can make for a light and healthy lunch
China is an ideal country to visit all year round. April-May and September-October consist of huge swarms of tourists because the weather is most pleasant, however if you want to avoid the high prices then less busy spells from June-August or the months of March and November offer less pricey times and still great weather for scenery and trekking etc.
Sang did a great job on this complex, one month-long trip to China. We went back and forth on emails repeatedly to get just what I wanted. There was even a last-minute three-day delay. Sang handled all of these with grace and ease. I have nothing but the highest praise for him as my trip planner in China.Read More Read More Less
Sang was absolutely amazing. Our tour was complex and we were difficult – made his life miserable by constant changes. He was consistently gracious, kind and ALWAYS came up with a fantastic solution.
Very happy with the service offered. Both our guides were knowledgeable and attentive. We were met at the airplane when we landed and assisted throughout the whole trip. We didn't know what to expect as this was our first time in Vietnam but left with great memories. We very much enjoyed both food sampling tours and in particular the Vespa Tour. It was a wonderful way to immerse into local culture and way of life. Everywhere we went we were greeted with a smile and welcomed warmly. Even where we were the only Westerners enjoying a Vietnamese pizza on the side curb.Read More Read More Less
