China

Tour a land of ancient traditions, captivating landscapes, fascinating cultures and home to a fifth of the world’s population. This holiday will introduce you to a vast and beautiful country of contrasts in landscape, climate and culture. Peaceful monastery villages survive on the outskirts of expanding modern super-cities. A place where ancient Confucius philosophy is comfortably wedded to modern economic theory.

Travel to the Limestone peaks, which rise poetically from the still water as if portrayed in an intricate traditional Chinese painting. Glide along the Li river in Guilin alongside fishermen on bamboo rafts and marvel at the breathtaking natural beauty. Or cruise down the mighty Yangtze river, passing rice terraced hillsides and Buddhist pagodas.

Beijing has been China’s capital for over eight hundred years. Home to a wealth of iconic sights such as the Great Wall of China, Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City, and to numerous Emperors of the Ming and Qing dynasties it should not be missed in any China holiday package! 

Admire the ultra-modern glitz of Shanghai’s skyscraper cityscape with its up market boutiques and shopping malls. Visit the Giant Panda Research Base, Marvel at the life sized Terracotta Warriors in Xi’an or relax in a traditional tea house.

China is a country on the move; a country with an ancient history and a hugely promising future. And there has never been a better time to visit this incredible country.

"It all went well and was a most enjoyable trip. Every day in China was an eye opener and such a dramatic change since I worked there back in 1980. All arrangements, hire cars, guides and hotel bookings all went perfectly. Very impressed with service and experience. " — Mr and Mrs Clark, Bribie Island, May 2018

"It is one of the best trips we ever had and that we could not fault anything. At my age it’s hard for anything to wow me but this trip definitely did. We were impressed with the trip in China and drivers and guides." — Mr and Mrs Harris, Gold Coast, April 2018

"Sadly our Asia adventure of Myanmar, China, Tibet and Taiwan is drawing to a close. We have enjoyed every minute of our time away and the places we have visited, each of which is unique in their own special and memorable ways. Taiwan has been varied and interesting from orderly Taipei, especially when compared to the larger cities in China, to the peace and serenity of Sun Moon Lake and the green and mountains of Taroko Gorge. Sun Moon Lake was the highlight for us, a welcome break from the hustle and bustle of cities. Michael our guide has been wonderful and our appreciation of Taiwan, its history and people, is now far greater thanks to him. Michael also suggested a fabulous dumpling restaurant where we had really yummy lunch. Thanks to you, the Asia team and Get About for arranging a very memorable holiday for us. The itinerary, guides, drivers, accommodation and inclusions were of a high standard. We have felt safe and well looked after at all times. And best of all we feel this holiday was definitely value for money. We look forward to our planned India adventure next year." — John and Viv Cumming, Sydney, November 2017

"The non-restored old parts of the wall were by far the most amazing part of the trip! I think even one day trekking an old section is totally worth it for anyone going to the Great Wall of China . It’s such a different feel to the touristy restored sections. The trek was amazing and we loved everything about it. Calf muscles were happily burning!!!" — Catherine & James, Sydney & Scotland, October 2017

"China should be on your travel list, if you want the wow factor, enjoy history, culture, diversity and wonderful people & food. Getabout Asia will exceed all expectations with planning your trip. Here is a picture at the Longsheng rice fields - fantastic!" — Mr & Mrs Jones, Darwin , September 2017

"We really enjoyed GuiLin and Ning was a wonderful guide. Everything was good from accommodation close to the lake, dinner at McFound, wine from the supermarket that we took to the restaurant each night. Then there was the Li River cruise and light show and the rice terraces - all so memorable. Ning suggested an evening cruise in the lake which we did and really enjoyed. Very colourful. The city tour day (Reed Flute Cave, etc) was good and welcome after two rather longish days. GuiLin is a place we could have spent an extra day wandering around by ourselves. Great adventure!" — Mr and Mrs Cumming, Sydney, October 2017

"We are off on our train to Mongolia for Trans Siberian but wanted to tell you we loved Beijing China. Amanda and Mr Yu were our guide and driver respectively. Both were excellent." — Mr and Mrs Cameron, WA , May 2017

"We're really happy with the feeling of a private tour. Thank you very much for advising it. We've seen some great places so far and the guides are very friendly. The shows we've seen so far were really entertaining and we've seen pandas in Chengdu, they are really cute." — Mr and Mrs Moore, Sunshine Coast, April 2017

"From the time we landed in China to the time we left, we had the best time. All your Guides are a credit to your company, their knowledge, manners, and genuine caring was Fantastic. Highlights, where do I start, the Great Wall, Terracotta Warriors, the Longmen Caves, Reed flute cave, and who could forget the Li River or the stone Forrest in Kunming. We would have no hesitation in recommending your company to anyone we know who wishes to travel to Asia." — Mr and Mrs Jones, NSW, January 2017

"The trip has been incredibly varied with every day being different and filled with amazing sights, sounds and smells. The tour has been absolutely fantastic and everything has gone very smoothly. Our guide was excellent; he had very good English and was very knowledgeable. He told us what we needed to know when we needed it and gave us plenty of personal space." — Brucks, Howrah TAS , September 2016

"China as a whole was a great place, but my Yangtze River was a highlight for me. I have an affiliation with water and loved the river cruising. As a child I loved boats and the river life with all its wonders and changing scenery." — Ms Cook, Melbourne Vic, July 2016

"We loved China for its history & diversity of sightseeing (Great Wall, Terracotta Army, Pandas, 3 Gorges etc). The planning process was excellent resulting in a truly outstanding vacation to China, Cambodia, Laos & Vietnam tailor made for us - a significant achievement & very impressive! Thanks to GetAboutAsia’s recommendations we visited places off the beaten track which really made it feel like an adventure rather than just a holiday. Many thanks - we'll definitely be booking our return trip with GetAboutAsia! " — Nigel & Annie Dale, Berkshire UK, April 2016

"GetAboutAsia could not have been more responsive and helpful in planning our China touring adventure. Everything from the quality of the hotels, the personal transfers and the local tour guides was excellent. The local tour guides were outstanding. Their knowledge was exceptional, they were friendly and each one went beyond the expected realms of providing for our needs. Ww would definitely recommend using this company! " — China Mrs Joanne McKenzie, Mrs Jackie Johnson and family, Mornington Peninsula, August 2015

"My favourite place was Yangshuo as it was less commercial and the scenery was amazing. Walking along the Great Wall in Beijing while it was snowing was incredible - It was impossible to take a bad photo, scenery was amazing! Thanks again for organising the trip for me and I'll definitely consider using GetAbout Asia in the future." — Carla Billeci , Melbourne, November 2015

"It is not very often we go to the trouble to write a review on our holidays however we felt in this instance we should make a few comments. The service and assistance both here and whilst away provide by GetAboutAsia was excellent and could not have been any better. Also the guide was excellent and we can definitely recommend GetAboutAsia for anyone wishing to travel to China." — Steve Potter, Western Australia, June 2015

"Our favourite moment was walking on the unrestored section of The Great wall. To be able to experience the history and magnitude of this amazing construction whilst being the only people in sight." — Mr and Mrs Mortiss, Wyong NSW , October 2015

"My husband hadn't been to China for 21 years and kept saying 'this is a Chinese Wonderland', so much had changed in that time. I had been eight years previously, but even in that time could see immense changes. The guides were all very personable and excellent at their jobs. We were very impressed by their command of English and their knowledge of their city or area, and their willingness to go out of their way to troubleshoot. The hotels were well chosen and convenient. Thanks for a well organised and enjoyable tour." — Bernadette & Peter Trotter, Hobart, TAS, September 2014
