Tours to China from Italy

China is an emerging superpower, but it is also an empire with a mouthwatering variety of food - in the south rice and prawns, in the west spicy lamb and in the north, roast duck and dumpling. More than a country, China is a feast for the senses. The following tour packages for Italian travelers are the perfect integration of Yummy food, Chinese history, culture, buildings and the charming beautiful landscape in Guangdong, Fujiang, Yunnan, Guangxi, Sichuan, Beijing and more.

Flights from Italy to China
Based on feedback from our Italian guests and our own travel experiences, we've found the following websites are very helpful for investigating and ticketing airfare to and from each of our trips.

What about drinks?

A: Local tea is commonly served with meals and there is a variety of soft drinks, local and imported beers and wines available for purchase. You should not drink the tap water, bottled water is inexpensive and readily available. If you like a 'cuppa', you may like to bring along a small supply of tea bags, coffee and milk powder. Most rooms have electric jugs or thermos flasks of boiling water to make hot.

 

What are the toilet facilities like on tour?

A: All of our hotels have western style bathrooms and toilets. Obviously in the more remote areas, they may be a little more basic, but clean and simple is common. Whilst sightseeing, toilet facilities at restaurants and local tourist sites can vary and we would recommend that you carry tissues, wet wipes or disinfectant gel with you, “just in case”.

 

What should I pack?

A: Casual clothing is appropriate at all times although clothes that are too revealing are still frowned upon in all over China. Try to pack lightly as your trip may involve an amount of personal baggage handling as porters are often not available except in larger hotels. For security reasons it is essential that your baggage can be locked whilst during air transportation between cities. At times, you may not be able to check into your hotel room immediately or be able to access your main bags. To ensure your comfort, a change of clothes in your hand luggage to coincide with local weather conditions is always handy. All personal toiletries should be taken with you and small packets of tissues or wet wipes are recommended. A small medical kit containing medication to alleviate common ailments is suggested.
