About Traveling in China

Having spent more than 3 years living in China, we’ve seen a lot of the country and it’s consistently one of the places I recommend the most – partly because there is so much to see but also because it’s rarely on the top of anyone’s list.

Yes, China is big and intimidating and traveling there can be frustrating, but many of the experiences I’ve had there are unmatched when it comes to Asia – there is so much culture + space that even taking a walk with no destination in mind can be an adventure.

I will say that traveling in China takes both planning and patience, the language difficulty can make getting around challenging but with a bit of preparation + gumption anyone can have an incredible time.
