(Li River/ Guilin)

China is really beautiful and interesting, with many great places to visit, and you could visit China for several days, 2 weeks, or even longer, as long as you have time.

For travelling in China, usually speaking, it takes 2-3 days for visiting 1 place. But for places like Beijing, Xian, and Guilin, they have many interesting attractions, you could arrange 3-5 days. For places like Zhangjiajie, Huangshan, and Jiuzhaigou, you also need extra 1-2 days, because climbing and hiking takes much time.

If you travel in China on your own or don’t want a busy schedule, it would take more days, because you don’t have a reasonable schedule, and would waste time in taking public transportation. In the case you want to visit 4 places, like Beijing+ Xian+ Guilin+ Shanghai, you may need 13 days.

Here we list some China tour itineraries for you, and you may make some changes according to your situation.
