Places to Visit in China After COVID-19 Pandemic

After going through the 2 tough years, the travelers around the world can see hope for the corona virus containment. Many countries in Europe, Latin America and Southeastern Asia have opened their borders to international travelers, while we guess it will take a little longer for China to adjust the current zero-tolerance COVID policy. Hopefully in 2023 there will be a chance to allow international travelers to enter the country. So what are the places to go in China after COVID-19?

When the reopening happens, Easy Tour China does not suggest that the travelers simply rush into the country. Frankly speaking, the travel industry in China suffered greatly from the suspension of tourism, it will take some time to rehabilitate to its original condition as a whole. It is essential to fully discuss with your travel agents about your China trip plan.
