Spring and fall are the best times of the year to visit most parts of China. Summer can be brutally hot in most parts of the country. However, summer is the preferred season to visit Inner Mongolia, Xinjiang, Tibet, Northeastern China. Winter brings cold to nearly every part of China. Even in the southern provinces, many hotels and tourist sites shut down. Only Fujian and Yunnan are pleasant in the winter.

Highlights include feeding giant pandas at a zoo in Chengdu, an epic walk on the Great Wall, drinks high atop Shanghai's Grand Hyatt, a ride on the fastest train in the world, and several shows and hands-on classes. We make sure each day is special.
