Is this your first time traveling to China? Check visa and vaccination requirements. Make package bookings to save money, and read travel blogs and guides to make the most of your trip.
If you want to explore the world, traveling to China should definitely be on your list. And, while you might be eager to jump on a flight to Beijing, there a few things to know before your trip. First and foremost, depending on your nationality, you might need a visa to travel to China. So, make sure to read up on current visa and travel requirements before you book your trip. You’ll also want to ensure that you are up to date with any necessary vaccinations. Finally, whether you are traveling for business or pleasure, you’ll greatly benefit by following common packing tips such as taking a bilingual dictionary, a guide book, a plug adaptor, and a book to read on that long flight.
Unfortunately, the costs of traveling to China can add up very quickly, so before you drop most of your savings on your ticket, it is a good idea to do some digging to find the best airfare deals. The best way to book your trip to Shanghai or Hong Kong is to consider flexible travel dates. Think about how many days to spend in each city, but play with some of the dates, as you might find that the return ticket is much cheaper if you extend your trip by one or two days. Another way to spend less money is to make package bookings for airfare, hotel, and transportation, instead of purchasing them separately.
Now, if you are visiting China for the first time, you’ll want to check out travel guides and blogs before and maybe even during your trip. Sites like Lifehacker, The China Guide, and Welcome to China, summarize the best bits and places to go to in China such as Beijing and Shanghai. Not only do they offer advice on where to go to eat, do shopping, and what attractions to visit, but they are also filled with tourist information including safety tips, and customs of the Chinese culture. So, make sure to take a handy guide for beginners with you if you want to make the most of your trip to China.
