China budget travel holidays

A China budget holiday is an affordable way to immerse yourself in the country’s unmistakable culture just by opting for a few less luxurious options. Experience the towering achievements of China's rich history as you uncover its past along the Great Wall and reflect on its future among its great cities.

Budget holiday to China
The Great Wall was the most memorable part. None of the pictures really do it justice, the views are amazing. We went about 60KM away from Beijing and set off early. It was really worth it as it was not crowded at all and we almost had the Wall to ourselves. (more)Darren Grubb
It was great! The tour was well organized and the guide was awesome. China is a huge country, but you get to see a nice bit of it in this tour. (more)Candy Owens

China holiday, Beijing to Hong Kong
Memorable parts? The terracotta warriors at Xi'an and the Great Wall. Cherry, our guide although very young, was dedicated and gave us great tips and help when choosing restaurants and outings. Our group integrated very well and everyone was on time for going places. Tips? Travel light, but do take toilet paper!! Local benefits? We certainly used local transport (busses, trains and only once taxis). Overall rating? Most enjoyable. The only thing that didn't work out... (more)Sheila Taylor

The "Guilin/Yangshuo" segment was the most enjoyable, the place was scenic and relaxing, and we had lots of options for activities from kung fu to cooking class. (more)Christine Frank

Shanghai to Beijing tour in China
The best part of my holiday came unexpectedly on the last day, when I found myself gazing at the roofs of the Forbidden City from the top of Jingshan Temple. (more)Jennifer Jenkins
I feel that every part of the journey is memorable - I enjoyed it throughout. It is very difficult to pick a few highlights, as I feel this trip includes most of China's highlights....It was a great holiday - a lot of interesting sights, fascinating history and great people (more)Pamela Krueger
I have been on quite a few trips around the world but this has certainly been the best, largely due to the unrelenting quality of the tour leader. (more)Thomas Webb
From £940 - £1085 excluding flights
