Coronavirus Update for China

While many parts of the world are still struggling with the virus, there are many places in the world that are winning the fight.

China, of course is the most well known example, with new infections almost totally confined to imported cases and great strides being made in the developments of treatments and a vaccine.

China currently has one of the lowest rates of new infections with just 11 new daily infections reported yesterday* which makes us optimistic that we will return to life as normal and be able to enjoy our dream holidays soon.

Frequently Asked Questions about China

  • When is the best time to travel to China?

    The best times to visit China are in the Spring, which falls between April – May and then in the Autumn, which is between September – October. This is when the weather is much more comfortable for tourists to explore.

  • Are the meals all local cuisine or are there any western meals and do they cater for vegetarians?

    As our tour focuses on unique and authentic experiences restaurants are hand-picked to ensure quality and authentic traditional dishes. Vegetarians and vegans are well catered for as we make sure all dietary requirements are sent over to the guides prior to departure.

  • Is there a lot of walking involved on our China tours?

    We grade our tours on level of activity and amount of walking involved, which can be found on the tour pages on the website and in our brochures, under ‘Physical Rating’. We grade the tours as follows:

    • Level 1 – A reasonable level of fitness is required, but its more about spending time on your feet rather than covering large distances.
    • Level 2 – This will involve a little more time on your feet than level 1 tours and may involve a bit more walking or steps.
    • Level 3 – A good level of fitness is required, as around 2-3 hours of walking will be required per day. Other activities such as cycling, may be included and walking longer distances.
    • Level 4 – Level 4 is similar to level 3 but the activities may be of longer duration or a more challenging terrain.
    • Level 5 – You’ll need to be fit and adventurous to participate in these tours as in some cases you will be active for most of the day on tough terrain or have physically demanding activities.
  • What part of China is the Great Wall in?

    The Great Wall of China stretches from Shanhaiguan on the Bohai Sea to Lop Lake in the Gobi Desert – around 4,000 miles. Most people visit the Great Wall from Beijing.
