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