Option 3:  Car Rental

Chartering a car is fast and convenient for tourists, but it is a bit expensive. If you are in a large group of 7 or so, or if you are in a big budget, I advise you to charter a private car with an experience driver. Certainly, you could book a transfer service from a travel agency, like Topchinatravel. Our transfer service includes car, driver and tour guide, which may be adjusted according to your need. If you book a transfer service from a travel agency, please make it at least one day ahead of time, otherwise they do not have enough time to arrange the car for you.
