REASONS NOT TO VISIT

China is a luxury travel destination quite unlike any other. As the country with the world’s oldest continuous culture, history buffs will find themselves steeped in ancient cities, dynastic palaces and the incredibly advanced inventions that earlier generations of Chinese scholars and scientists brought to the world.

At the same time, China is a burgeoning and modern country with cities like Shanghai, Beijing and Hong Kong among the world’s most exciting in terms of business, finance, fashion, culture, shopping and comfort.

Chinese cuisine may need no general introduction but food-loving visitors have eight regional cooking styles to choose from. It is no surprise that both dining and cooking classes are high on the bucket list of many a luxury traveler to China.

From the ancient terracotta warriors at Xi’an to newborn Giant Pandas in Chendu, from hilltop hideaways like the fabulous Amandayan, to the futuristic city of Shanghai, there is an endless variety of things to do in China.

In fact, there may be so many choices that it is hard to even begin to plan your ideal trip to China but happily, that is where we come in!

If you take a few moments to outline your key preferences, Trekerie will select two of the best China travel experts based on your specification and each one will provide travel suggestions for you.

Guilin to Yangshuo Li River Cruise

The four-hour cruise from Guilin to Yang Shuo is a tranquil journey into the past. As you glide past paddy fields and limestone cliffs it seems that every time you turn a corner you find an ever more beautiful scene.

China is a fabulous vacation destination year-round but what should you expect at each time of year?

Spring

From March to May.

Spring in China is a picturesque and pleasant season. China from March to May is full of lush, colorful blossoms, and fresh green hues. Rain showers enhance the view in the form of mountain mists in unearthly areas like Guilin and the Yellow Mountains. The weather warms up, but it’s not too hot.

It is recommended to avoid the Labor Day holiday week (May 1 – 7), as attractions, transport, and hotels are packed with Chinese tourists.

Summer

From June to August.

It is the best time to visit some of China’s remote areas in the summer: Tibet, the Northwest and Inner Mongolia remain fresh.

In the rest of China, sunshine and warmth certainly make for good holiday weather, though some might find it too hot (95°F).

The monsoon is generally greater in intensity the further southeast (or up in the mountains).

Fall

From September to October.

It is the best time to appreciate colorful autumn scenery. China has warm/mild temperatures. As September advances, summer rains stop. It is a comfortable time to visit the major Chinese attractions in Beijing, Xi’an, Shanghai, Guilin, Hong Kong, Chengdu, etc…Advice: Avoid the first week of October (Chinese National Day Holiday) when attractions, transport, and hotels are very crowded.

Winter

From November to February.

Consider the majesty of the Great Wall of China as it snakes through the distant, snowy peaks, silhouetted against a crisp blue sky – with not a soul in sight. Visit China for winter scenery, winter sports, attractions like the Harbin Ice and Snow Festival and China’s ski resorts. Some places that fall just within the tropics like southernmost Yunnan Hong or the Hong Kong area, enjoy mild winters.

Consider avoiding Chinese New Year Week (January or February) if you want to avoid crowds
