Advanced research and planning for your China journey are important. Initially, consider the examples you intend to see: stunning landscapes or yards, historic antiques, contemporary city life, life in the countryside, or quests of unique passions. Certainly, you can see blends of these points or just pick a couple of locations and also see whatever there is to see with no particular goals in mind.
China is a large country with great variants in living patterns, customizeds, as well as style, also amongst localities that maybe only 50 miles apart. It is extremely different from the Chinatown you can see in New york city City. China's unexpected parochialism permits you to see a range of points within a fairly tiny radius, therefore reducing enormously on traveling time as well as expense. In numerous methods, this comparable to sightseeing in New york city City.
In general, the variety of days spent in each city depends on how hard you want to push on your own, just how much you want to see, as well as, obviously, what ways of transport is utilized (setting up to take long-distance intercity trains by night can save hotel costs as well as even more time in the cities themselves). As a basic guide, one a minimum of three days to Beijing, 3 days to Shanghai, Xi'an, and also 2 days to most other cities.
Certainly, prior to heading to China one must acquire a vacationer visa (L visa), which can conveniently be acquired from the Chinese consulate in New York City.
Chinese tourist visa (L-visa) is required for all American passport holders. The Chinese Consulate General in New York s is where you will apply for this visa. However, our guests frequently complain the information on the Chinese Consulate's Website doesn't get updated sitewide and creates trouble for the application process.
You should apply for your visa about 1.5-2 months before your actual trip, just to be safe. Here is the address for the New York consulate:
520 12th Ave, New York, NY 10036

Great Wall Adventure Club will be very glad to assist you with the preparation of the Invitation Letter required by the Chinese visa office and offers you other tips on how to obtain a visa successfully.
A two-day hike along a remote stretch of China? Great Wall affords endless views without the distraction of crowds.
The Great Wall Adventure Club arranges hikes from one to 12 days, mostly along remote sections of the wall. (There might be up to eight travelers in a group, but we were lucky to be just the four of us.) Some inclines are steep, and the trails are often over stone rubble with drop-offs to either side, but the hike shouldn’t be difficult if you’re in average physical condition and wearing decent shoes — even without someone to hold your hand or fan you.
