Can I travel to China with babies?
Yes, China is a good travel destination for kids of all ages. For safety and health reasons, however, we don't suggest you travel with babies under 6 months. Some places and activities are not suitable for young kids: Tibet, some parts of Yunnan and southern of Sichuan (for high altitude), long-distance hiking in Yunnan or mountainside (for high energy consumption) and remote places in Xinjiang (for difficult acclimation in climate and food).
Should I hire a tour guide for my family holiday in China?
It depends on specific needs of your family. No matter with or without a tour guide, you should plan your family trip ahead of time and resource some help from a Chinese or a travel expert.
How long ahead of time should I book my family trip?
Considering flight and hotel reservations, we suggest your book the tour at least 3 months ahead of your departure. In this way, you will have enough time to adjust your itinerary and prepare for the big journey, not to mention some coming promotions and deals.
If you plan on traveling to Tibet, it is the compuslory to book at least 3 months ahead because it takes about 2 months to apply for Tibet Travel Permit. .
