      Travel agent or book myself for domestic flights and river cruise?

      China Dec 25, 2016 at 8:43 PM

      We will be in Shanghai in early June 2017 and would like to do a Yangtze River cruise from Yichang to Chongqin then fly to Xian for a couple of days then fly back to Shanghai again. Is it feasible to book this myself or does this need to be done through a travel agent and be on a private tour?
      I figure we don't need a tour guide while on the cruise, but is it easy enough to get from end of cruise in Chongqin to airport with maybe a quick look around or trip to the zoo if I just organise a guide/driver myself?

      Has anyone here booked a tour in China?

      China Dec 20, 2016 at 3:54 PM

      I'm planning a big trip to China next year (Beijing, Shanghai, Xi'an and maybe a few others) and I want to book either one big tour or a few smaller tours. I don't know whether to book a private tour (which costs more) or a group tour? I don't think I want to be on a tour bus full of people but am aware of the costs of private tours. I don't think I can travel in this region without a guide, especially as I have zero language skills.

      Has anyone had any experience with this? What should I look out for or be concerned about? I'm not really sure where to start.

      Also, does anyone know any good value places to book tours? Is it better to wait until i'm there and find them or book from an agent here?? Any help welcome!

    • Travelling alone-a number of questions

      by massandra Online Now Nov 13, 2009 at 8:45 AM

      Hi guys,
      I'm considering an option of travelling to Hainan (Sanya) alone. Thus, a number of questions appears:
      1 Is it safe, eg to walk around in the evening for a young lady in Sanya and Dadunhai(sorry for incorrect spelling).
      2 are credit cards accepted there? Or shall I take cash with me?
      3 Language. Do Chinese speak English? Russian?
      4 How's the weather at the moment and water (sea) temperature?

      Thanx in advance for replies!

      Places to stay at Shimei Bay?

      by ingaga Online Now Sep 16, 2009 at 4:31 PM

      Hi there,

      Im am going to Hainan End of October for a few days to relax at the beach.
      I heard that the Shimei Bay is very nice and not so much touristic.
      Can't find any hotels on the internet which are on the beach. Only the huge Méridien. Doesn't need to bee that fancy for me.

      Thanks for tipps for places to stay!

      best wishes,
      inga
