Incredibly vast and fascinatingly diverse, China remains a go to travel destination that is full of spectacular scenery, amazing culture, 4,000 year old history and a buzz of activity that makes it the fastest developing country in the world. Let’s not forget China’s rich, delicious cuisine and distinctive culinary style that emphasizes fresh, seasonal ingredients, prepared with minimum fuss and beautifully balanced texture, color and presentation. As far as natural beauty goes, there is so much for you to see from the Yangtze gorges, the Gobi deserts to Hainan’s tropical beaches and forests.
A visit to one of the Seven Wonders of the World, The Great Wall of China goes without saying. After the Great Wall, you can make your way down south, where you'll find the picturesque Yellow Mountains, and then continue on to Lijiang and hike the Tiger Leaping Gorge, listed by National Geographic as one of the best hikes in the world. Explore the rooms that housed ancient emperors in the Forbidden City in Beijing and stand with the Terracotta warriors in Xi'an.
In China, taxis are cheap and public transportation is even cheaper. In Beijing, for instance, it costs just 2 RMB (RM1.26) to ride the subway anywhere in the city. Don't worry about getting lost, the Chinese people are extremely friendly and helpful, especially to foreigners who can't speak the language, so there will always be a local on hand to help you get back on track if you lose your way. In a country that contains the world's highest mountains, some of the world's largest deserts, remote jungles, and seemingly endless grasslands, you are going to need a plan. Thus, it’s a good idea to focus your itinerary and choose the places you want to see ahead of time.
Another good tip would be to premeditate potential crises that may occur during your travel. Especially instances that are health related or would require medical attention when abroad. For this, you may want to consider a comprehensive insurance plan that offers extensive protection for your trip to China.
