The People’s Republic of China, or simply known as China, is located in Eastern Asia and the most populous country in the world. It is also the second largest country in the world by land area after the United States of America. China is also the world’s third most visited country and fast becoming the largest tourist country.
Why Travel to China
Popular among travellers for its richness in culture and vast history, visitors to China will definitely have a unique experience while touring across the country. It is also a country that is rich and diverse in natural landscape. Travelers can choose to walk through the heritage cities of Sichuan and Xi’an where one can find the famous Terracotta warriors. Or stroll along the urbanized cities of Shanghai and Beijing and visit the Forbidden City that was once home to ancient emperors. Of course if you plan a holiday in China, a hike on the Great Wall of China should not be missed but be added to the travel itinerary. For more natural wonders and gorgeous landscapes, head down south and climb the majestic Yellow Mountains before continuing on to perhaps one of the world’s best hiking trails along the Tiger Leaping Gorge.
Best Time to Visit China
China is a vast country so deciding on when the best time to travel would largely depend on where you want to go, what you want to do and if what you want to see. However, it is generally recommended that the early autumn month of October would be the best time to fly to China. Most parts of the country would be enjoying warm and comfortable temperatures at this time and the wet summer rains would be avoided. The fall autumn hues would also start to show so this will be an added appeal for traveling in October. It is also less crowded during this month as the summer tourist crowds have gone. Do keep in mind that the first week of October would be peak travel season due to a local national holiday so attractions and accommodations might be pricier during this period.
