How many days are you planning for the trip? What kind of hotel would you prefer to stay in during the trip? 5 star for deluxe hotel? 4 star for first-class comfortable hotel or 3 star for budget hotel?

Travel to Snow City in China

Praful ( india ) June 17,2015

i want to visit China beautiful city have snow city

Dear Praful,

Thanks for contacting Top China Travel

Harbin is a famous snow city in China, so if you want to travel to a beautiful snow city, Harbin is a good choice. It is China's northernmost province, is a place of many contradictions. Travelers are faced with frequently cold and inhospitable climates, but comforted by a warm and friendly population, increasing huge and stark skyscrapers, but also winding streets of quaint, colonial architecture, and impressive Siberian Tiger conservation policies that are somewhat offset by hunting grounds where a variety of animals are killed for pleasure.

If you are interested in it, we can help you to arrange the tour, but first, could you please tell me:
1. When do you plan to make your tour? and for how long?
2. How many people will travel together?
3. Which kinds of hotels do you prefer? Standard, comfortable or deluxe?

Any further request or question, please feel free to contact with us.

Questions About Food & Water Safe and Air Pollution in China

Bernard ( Canada ) June 15,2015

Is the food and water safe in China?Will we need face masks?Half the people and two-thirds of the country’s farmland are in the parched north—mainly in the Yellow river basin. In Beijing there is just 100 cubic metres per person per year. The water table there has fallen by 300 metres in two decades. Wen Jiabao, a former prime minister, was barely exaggerating when he said water shortages “threaten the very survival of the Chinese nation”.

Dear Bernard,

Greetings from Sophie, Top China Travel!
Thank you very much for your questions as below,

Is the food and water safe in China?Will we need face masks?Half the people and two-thirds of the country’s farmland are in the parched north—mainly in the Yellow river basin. In Beijing there is just 100 cubic metres per person per year. The water table there has fallen by 300 metres in two decades. Wen Jiabao, a former prime minister, was barely exaggerating when he said water shortages “threaten the very survival of the Chinese nation”.

Well noted that you are concerned about the food, water and air pollution in China and thank you very much for your kind concerning.

@Food and water during our tour
Noted that there are some reports about the food safty in China and well understand your worries.
In our tours, we arrange our clients to have meal at legal and formal hotels or restaurants. Therefore, we have never met any clients who had food safe problem so far. Billions of foreign visitor travel to China every year.
since our tours on private basis, it is more flexiable for us to meet the clients' flavor and requests.

Regarding to water, I could talk to you personally. As an ordinary citizen in China, we generally drink the boiled water without sickness. Therefore, that means our drinking water is safe, although it is not good enough to drink directly .
But the bottled water is better treated. It can be drunk directly. We only offer bottled water to our clients.
If the clients are still worried about the bottled water, there are imported bottled pure water sold in supermarket in some large cities. Our guide could show them to buy.

@Air pollution
This is also a problem we are also concerned about nowadays.
But the air pollution mainly focus in North China in winter. It is easy to see white cloud and blue sky from Spring in fine day.
Generally speaking, we suggest our clients avoid winter, which is also the low tourism season in China and views are not as good as other seasons. In Winter, it is better to ware a face mask in North China outside.


We noted that you might read some reports abou the food and water safe as well as pollution in China, but that is not real because it is exagerated by the medias to call for people to protect environment and cherish water.

As you know, China is a developing country with the largest population in the world. China is also the country who develops fastest. Therefore, it will be very resource consuming. As the 2nd economic giant, it is not hard to find modern cities developed in China with good infrastructure. It makes China could service for bilions of tourists from other countries every year.

Therefore, food and water safe is really not a problem in China.

Hope the above is clear and helpful. If you plan to visit China, please do not hesitate to contact with us and offer us below information so that we could work out a program for you.
1. When will you plan to travel to China?
2. How many of you will travel to China?
3. Which cities are you interested in to visit?
4. What kind of hotels will you hope to stay during the tour? 3 star standard hotel, 4 star 1st class hotel or 5 star deluxe hotel?
5. Any other special requests on food, tour and accommodation?

About the Train from Beijing to Lhasa

ashok datar ( india ) June 15,2015

for sr no. 5 - 6 days beijing and shanghai trip in sept or october .
is it possible to take a train from beijing to lhasa and after a stay for 3 to 4 days, can u provide a flight from Lhasa to Kathmandu

Catherine Pan( TCT Sales Representative ) June 15,2015

Catherine Pan
Dear Ashok Datar,

Greetings from Sophie, Top China Travel!
Thank you very much for your enquiry as below,

for sr no. 5 - 6 days beijing and shanghai trip in sept or october .
is it possible to take a train from beijing to lhasa and after a stay for 3 to 4 days, can u provide a flight from Lhasa to Kathmandu

Well noted that you would like to travel to Beijing, but hotel to take train from Beijing to Lhasa.

@Train from Beijing to Lhasa
Please be advised that it is hard to buy train tickets from Beijing to Lhasa. If you are only 2-4 persons, we could have a try to buy soft sleeper tickets on the train, but not make sure. If you do not mind hard sleeper, it becomes easier, but also not make sure.
We suggest you take train or flight to Xining, then take train from Xining to Lhasa. It will be easier a bit, as there are more train from Xining to Lhasa.
To be honest, if you go as Beijing-Xining-Lhasa, the cost is also the same as flight due to the high handling fee. Therefore, I suggest you take flight instead

@ flight from Lhasa to Kathmandu
It is possible to buy the air tickets from Lhasa to Kathmandu. But you need to get Nepal passport on your own in adance.

Hope the above is clear and helpful. If you could accept to take flight to Lhasa, could you mind telling us more information about your tour plan so that we could offer you the tour program?
1. When will you plan to visit Beijing and Lhasa? If you travel in September and october, I suggest you avoid September 27- Oct 07 as it covers 2 national holiday in China. It will be too crowded outside and the tour cost will be also higher.
2. How many of you will travel together?
3. What kind of hotels will you hope to stay? 3 star hotel, 4 star hotel or 5 star deluxe hotel?
4. Is there any special requests about the tour, food, accommodation, except flight from Lhasa to Kathmandu?
