CHINA

In the year of 2019, The China Guide organized custom private tours in China for thousands of travelers from the United States, Canada, Australia, the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Spain, and beyond. As 2020 kicks off, we are releasing our third annual tourism report on the popular choices of our travelers in 2019. Popular months to travel to china When planning a trip, the first question many people ask is when to go. Considering the mild weather and pleasant temperatures, spring (March, April, and May) and fall (September, October, and November) are usually the two most popular seasons to visit China. This is also well shown by our statistics on the distribution of travelers in 2019. distribution of travelers in 2019 (by month) Based on our data, 65% of our clients traveled to China in March, April, May, September, October or November. While Chinese summers are hot on most days, June, July, and August received a share of visitors similar to spring or fall. One reason is the summer break, which makes these months a good time for families to travel. Due to the cold weather and the holiday season, December, January, and February saw the lowest number of visitors, with only 7% of travelers choosing these three months to visit China. Weather, public holidays and school breaks are some of the factors worth considering when planning a trip to China. Here you can learn more about the advantages and disadvantages of visiting the country in different months/seasons. Top 10 China destinations In 2019, 90% percent of our travelers included Beijing either as their sole destination or as one stop of their multi-city tours. This is understandable, as Beijing is generally considered the main gateway to China, both geographically and culturally, and is home to two of the best-known attractions that the country has to offer: the Great Wall and the Forbidden City. To this figure, it largely contributed the many layover/transit passengers or business travelers who usually take one or two days off to do some sightseeing. Our statistics show that in 2019 travelers spent an average of 2.3 days exploring Beijing.
