I'm going to china on my round the world trip and i'm going alone so I wanted to do a tour. Can anyone recommend a good tour company? i'm a 21 year old girl and want to have a good time, as well as seeing all the sites and experience the culture. Any suggestions? I just don't think i can travel China on my own.
I'm doing a visit to China whilst on my trip and am thinking of using the imaginative traveller tour, called the Great China Adventure, it starts in Beijing, passes through Shanghai and ends in Hong Kong around 3 weeks I think?.
When are you going to be in China?
Where are you now? I think you can travel around in China on your own because you will never on your own, you will meet many other backpackers on the way. I travelled in China on my own for 6 weeks. It was great! You need a good guidebook, read it and plan your trip: where to go, which hotels to stay, how to go from place to place, etc.? You can come to some local agents for some arrangement. Most of the time, I found good source of info from my guesthouses. Have a phrasal book of English - Mandarin with you. It will be useful.
Don't hesitate to ask for the local's help if you need it.
Take care and have fun.
I travelled in India, Thailand and Vietnam last year and did tours with Intrepid Travel to them all. They are fantastic. YOu see all the touristy places, as well as showing the real country instelf. Thoroughly recommend them.
