Individual Travel

For those individual travelers, three ways could be chosen.

The first, also the most comfortable but, accordingly, the most expensive way is to book a full package tour through a travel agency. Everything is pre-booked, including the flights, journey, accommodation, meals and transfers. Like group travel, a qualified tour guide from China travel agency is available in each town to help with putting together and arranging a sightseeing program.

The second way is booking a mini-package tour. The travel agency is only responsible for booking flights, accommodation and transfers while the travelers have to plan the sightseeing program themselves. Normally, the traveler is met at the airport or railway station of each town. He/ she then is taken to the hotel where a travel agency counter is set. Traveler could discuss their plans for sightseeing there and have them arranged for a fee.

The last one is a completely independent travel, without any pre-booking. This form of traveling in China has increased in recent years since it seems to be more flexible and freely. The travelers of this kind have to arrange everything, the flights, accommodation, meals, transfers and sightseeing program themselves. Cumbrous as these things are, they provide you a good chance to contact Chinese people and practice your ability to deal with various unexpected events. In order to make the travel smooth, you are recommended to book an air or rail tickets and an accommodation as soon as you arrive.
