  • Rural China is known for both the warmth and generosity of its people, and its breathtaking landscapes. But as a developing country it sometimes lacks many of the amenities that we might take for granted. At times during your time in parts of the country this will become evident by way of road conditions, the availability of western foods and the simplicity of local accommodation. We hope that these elements of your trip only add charm and authenticity but also that you are prepared to make some small adjustments along the way.
  • The above mentioned rates are subject to availability. Kindly note that no reservation has been made at this moment.
  • For certain sightseeing venues, if a child is taller than 120 cm, entrance fees are calculated as an adult. For further visits or re-entry at some sites, the entrance fee must be paid again and this will be the responsibility of the client.
  • If you have any further ideas, please feel free to contact us. We will do our best to adjust the offer according to your wishes.
