Frequently Asked Questions about China City Tours
  • 1. How many days is enough in Beijing?+

    How many days to spend in Beijing for a tour? The ideal length of time to explore in Beijing depends on your interests, schedule, and budget. However, to get a good feel for the city and see the major attractions, we would recommend to spend at least 2-4 full days in Beijing.

    During this time, you can visit iconic landmarks such as the Great Wall, Forbidden City, Summer Palace, and Temple of Heaven, discover historic neighborhoods like the Hutongs, sample delicious food (such as Beijing Duck & dumplings) at local eateries and markets, and experience the vibrant culture and nightlife of the city. Of course, there are many other interesting sites to explore in and around Beijing, such as the Confucius Temple (Guozijian), Lama Temple (Yonghegong), and the Olympic Park (Birds' Nest & Water Cube), among others.

    When you have 5 or more days, you can travel to another city like Xian by high speed train after touring Beijing.

  • 2. When is the best time to travel to Tibet?+

    The best time to travel to Tibet is from April to early June and September to November. In fact, Tibet is worth a visit all year round, because the sceneries vary in different season. If you like winter view, winter is also good travel time with clearest snow-capped mountains and the most colorful rivers. However, the roads in Tibet might be frozen in winter. Please ask us for the exact weather if you plan to travel in winter.

  • 7. How to Visit Terracotta Warriors?+

    Terracotta Warriors and Horses Museum Layout

    The Terracotta Warriors and Horses Museum, which houses the main pits containing the warriors, is divided into three sections: Pit 1, Pit 2, and Pit 3.

    Pit 1: The largest and most impressive of the three pits, Pit 1, houses the main army formation, with over 6,000 figures (2,000 are currently on display). The pit covers an area of approximately 14,260 square meters, equivalent to the size of an airplane hangar.

    Pit 2: This pit is notable for its complex layout and variety of military figures, including standing and kneeling archers, cavalry, charioteers, and infantry. Despite being smaller than Pit 1, Pit 2 offers a richer diversity of the army, providing further insights into ancient military strategy and the mysteries of the army array.

    Pit 3: Known as the command center, Pit 3 is the smallest but considered the most important pit due to its perceived role as the army's "headquarters."

    Our Recommended Visiting Route: Pit 1 – Pit 3 – Pit 2 - Exhibition Hall

    Begin with Pit 1 as it's the largest and most stunning, offering a grand first impression. Spend ample time here observing the soldiers' intricate details and formations. Next, move on to Pit 3, where you will see the army's "headquarters." Then, proceed to Pit 2, where you will encounter a more diverse array of military figures. Finally, conclude your visit at the Exhibition Hall, where you can marvel at the history of the Terracotta Warriors and Horses.

    Suggested Visiting Time: 2-3 hours

Bhutan 6D5N
Our trip in Bhutan was perfect and beyond expectation. I would like to pay special thanks to our exceptional guide who was being kind and considerate all the time. Without him and our lovely driver, none of these would happen. Big thanks also goes to the back office staff for organising the entire itinerary, never impatient with our back-and-forth emails. I never would have imagined that the result out of my random selection of travel agents could be anything closer to what I have experienced. You’re truly a great company that offers great value and put customer’s needs as the top priority. I just wanted to express my gratitude here again, thank you all for the efforts! Bhutan is a beautiful country with so many things to offer, I only caught a glimpse this time as a starter. I will surely choose you again and make referrals to my friends. Thank you very much for the wonderful memory.
