China Travel GuideAbout China
China is a diverse country, comprised of more than one-fifth of the world's population and a history that dates back 5,000 years. Its major cities and rural attractions draw visitors from around the globe.When to visit China
Because of its large size, China has extremely different climates from region to region. The best time to go in the south isn't necessarily the best time to go in the north. China has a large population, which contributes to crowds, particularly in major cities and during events and holidays. However, when the crowds are sparse, low prices are more prevalent.
