Visit China — Time Smart

We choose the best times for you to capture China's beautiful scenery

“When is the best time to visit China?” From our decades in the China travel industry, we advise as follows:

Generally speaking, China's cultural and historical attractions are good for visiting all year around. Weather-wise, the best times to visit China are spring (April–May) and autumn (September–October).

Our tour schedules are flexible. Hate the idea of climbing the Great Wall on a rainy day? Visit the Forbidden City instead, and see the Great Wall on a clearer day.

Our guides are happy to change your itinerary to ensure you have the best China experience possible. Start creating my trip

How Many Days to Stay — We Recommend at Least 8

Enjoy walking the Great Wall at your own pace

Who would want to travel half the world only to spend 20 rushed minutes on the Great Wall? We suggest you take at least 8 days for your China trip to see a spectrum of the highlights well, instead of only scratching the surface.

To discover more of China, like its magical natural landscapes, you will need a few more days.

Top China Gateway Cities

The most popular China gateway cities are Beijing, Shanghai, and Hong Kong, with huge international airports and plentiful attractions.

China Visas in 2019

Foreign citizens will normally need a visa to visit China.  We recommend you apply for your China visa one or two months before your travel date. Applying for a visa with the help of a visa company may save you a lot of hassle. See China visa requirement for your China tours in 2019 with China Highlights.
