Then go to Stanley Market, a street market near the beach. Once a fishing village, Stanley Market is now a great destination for purchasing various goods, including Chinese-style works of art, silk fabric, antiques, and king-size clothes.

3. Special Notes for a Seat-in-a-Coach Tour

1) A seat-in-coach tour minimizes costs because expenses are shared among a larger group.

2) Seat-in-coach tours are operated by local business partners of China Highlights around China. China Highlights chooses business partners by strict quality standards. The service of a seat-in-coach tour may not always be as considerate as that of a private tour.

3) Visiting one or two shops or markets is always included in a seat-in-coach tour, but there is no pressure to buy if you are not interested. In general, customers will spend about 20-30 minutes there. If some members in the group are interested and it may spend more 15 minutes there.

4) A seat-in-coach tour usually consists of more than five people. You will have a local guide and use a 24-or-45-seat air-conditioned coach. We will pick you up at some appointed hotels at an appointed time. In contrast, a private tour provides a private car and guide, and we will pick you up at your hotel.

4. Cancellation Policy
