I don't understand why China Holiday guests (from US) must have international travel insurance. It is something I never purchase. Is this just flight insurance? If so, any recommendations on where to purchase?


Hi I am from Eritrea & I do have a plan to visit China for 10-15 days in May 2011. I want to know how much money do I need for this trip to stay in China.

Thank you,

Gorge and Jean

We have come back from a tailor made China Highlights Tour. It is a wonderful trip. From the first day that I sent enquiry letter till the last day of tour, I felt their working staff and guides very professional. Their knowledge about China is profound and it was a very warm feeling that there always are someone looking after you when being afar from home!!

I liked Beijing so much. I came to Beijing one day earlier than the rest of the group and spending the day in Houhai area. It was so enjoyable walking through Hutongs and watching the traditional corner of modern Beijing. People are so nice and patient when I asked them about the metro stations and other information. Besides, Beijing is a very tidy city, much cleaner than most western cities I have been to.


I have just come back from the trip. Yangshuo is fantastic. I liked the beautiful countryside there and to see the fisherman and cormorants going fishing

Note: Remember, you can change this itinerary to the way you want or to extend this tour to visit other Chinese cities or even neighboring countries, please do contact us, we will be happy to arrange it for you!
