2015 Date to Avoid

Avoid China’s major holidays (unless you want to take part in the celebrations), as transport and tourist areas are packed and prices for hotels at least double. These are the two weeks either side of Chinese New Year (February 19, 2015), Labor Day week (May 1–7), and National Day week (October1–7). The short vocation would also cause cities and attractions busy temporarily, e.g. Tomb Sweeping Day (April 4-6, 2015), Middle Autumn Festival (September 26-28, 2015)

China’s Gateway Cities

Typically Beijing, Shanghai, Hong Kong, and Guangzhou are the first chose as the landing cities, but now Chengdu’s airport offers a number of useful connections to the US, Europe, and Australasia, opening up western China in a single direct journey.

Release the Concerns

Visa and Visa-Free Travel Opportunities

Most of the foreigners need apply China visa in advance, China Highlights can help with invitation letter who book the tour with us, and usually China visa can be issued in 7-14 working days. Good news, 10 cities and regions of China are 72-hour visa free (Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Chengdu, Chongqing, Shenyang, Dalian, Guilin, Xi’an, and Kunming). Take a short China tour alongside a trip to another country! For more information, click here.

Tibet Permit Issue

China Highlights will issue this key permit in China with travelers’ passports and visas’ scan and deliver the paper to your last-stop. For more information, please click The Tibet Entry Permit.

The Best Time to Visit

China is a vast country geographically spanning five time zones, it is hard to suggest one perfect period that suitable for all regions, so it would be better to ask your personal travel advisor’s suggestion referring to your interests. Generally, temperature would be comfortable in May, September and October. Now the choice is yours: flowers blooming, hot sunshine, autumn hues, or snow scenes. For more information, click here.

Air Quality

Air quality in large China cities is worse than in Western cities, but is being controlled, particularly in Beijing and other tourist cities, ranging from a tolerable nuisance to quite good.

How’s the Food

It’s very different to a Chinese takeaway! You can taste many new flavors and dishes in China, from spicy tofu to yak fat tea. If you travel with us we will take you to the best and cleanest restaurants, serving authentic local flavors. We’re flexible and able to adjust to any eating requirements you have.

When to Book

We suggest booking your tour as early as possible, to avoid price rises related to exchange rates and fuel surcharges. However, we can make the last-minute reservations and will try to the best of our ability to make your travel arrangements if it happens.

Can I Make Changes

China Highlights not only design and tailor itineraries to your needs, but also offer flexibility if your circumstances or ideas change. You can even make changes during the tour, and our consultancy is free of charge. Only third party expenses incurred by China Highlights due to changes are charged to the customer.
