What to do in China
The People’s Republic of China is a large East Asian country. China has a long and rich history that still influences and excites the world today. It also has huge popular cities like Beijing, Guangzhou, Hangzhou, Shanghai, Xi’an, and Yangzhou.
Start your adventure in Beijing - China’s capital and culture centre. Visit the landmarks like Tiananmen Square in Dongcheng District, which is surrounded by grand buildings, the Museum of Chinese History, and the famous Forbidden City. Love the Olympics? You should definitely stop by the National Stadium in Chaoyang District!
Travelling to Guangzhou is expected when you’re in China. Stop by the Dafo Temple and the Taoist Temple. Make your way to the Guangdong Museum of Art for modern genres, and the high-tech exhibition of marine life in Guangzhou Ocean. If you’re looking for a romantic spot or just somewhere beautiful to update your Facbeook profile picture, head straight to the stunning Million Sunflower Garden in Panyu.
Shanghai is China’s most developed city. As you arrive, you’ll instantly see the Oriental Pearl Tower. You can grab a bite to eat here, but the fantastic views are more than enough to delight anyone. After observing the view, observe their art next at the Shanghai Museum where there are English-speaking volunteers to give you a tour. Since the museum is free, start spending your Yuan and shop till you drop at Huaihai Road and Nanjing Road.
There are other great things to do in China, but you should complete your trip and climb the Great Wall of China!
When to visit China
The climates throughout the regions are diverse. But most travellers and locals say that October (autumn) is the best time to visit China for pleasant weather and less tourists. For cheaper rates, travel during low season from November to early March.
When packing, remember that China’s seasons differ from ours: spring from March to May, summer from June to August, autumn from September to November, and winter from December to February.
All travellers to China are required to have a visa, and a passport that’s valid for at least six months after your trip to China. You also need to provide proof of a return ticket to Australia or an onward ticket to another country. Ready your travel documents and be prepared with Smartraveler.
