Dining inclusions

The majority of meals are likely to be Chinese rather than international. Vegetarians can be catered for but the food is quite different from which you are likely to be used to. Larger city hotels provide international cuisine as well as Chinese, but presentation and taste may vary from western standards.


Occasionally we may need to substitute one or more of the hotels with that of a similar standard.

Journey times

China is a vast country and journey times between destinations can sometimes be long and traffic can be considerable.

Group size

This is a private tour which departs daily.

Visa requirements

A Chinese Visa is required for all British passport holders and most other nationalities and MUST be obtained before your arrival in China. A full 10 year passport is required and must be valid for 6 months beyond your departure date from China, with at least two blank pages. We recommend processing your visa directly with ‘CIBT’ who will obtain all visas in person, and return your passport to you (with visa) by registered post. Contact them on or 0207 963 3873.
