7 Days in China: Itinerary and Tours

China is a treasure, boasting its glorious history, incredible landscapes, classic man-made wonders, and delicious cuisine. How can you spend your precious time in China if you only have 7 days there? You have another choice instead of joining traditional tours or having an expensive private tour. Our mini group tours make your trip more flexible and fun.

Read on to discover why our mini group tours make your trip more flexible and significant.

Top 10 Things to Do in China in 7 Days

There are plenty of must-do activities you can’t miss in China, no matter how many days you are staying in the country for. Try to experience these as they will become the highlights of your trip.

  1. Climb the challenging Great Wall and “be a hero”, just like Chairman Mao said in his famous proverb.
  2. Visit the Forbidden City, which has 9,999 rooms, and listen to stories of its history, culture, and architecture. Discover what the imperial lifestyles were like with an in-depth exploration.
  3. Enjoy a pleasant afternoon at the Summer Palace, which was the largest and most luxurious royal garden during the Ming and Qing dynasties (1368–1912).
  4. Be shocked by thousands of human-like terracotta warriors and vivid horse sculptures in Xi’an.
  5. Explore ancient Chinese architecture in an interesting way as you ride on the ancient Xi’an City Wall.
  6. Taste famous and genuine Chinese food, such as Beijing roast duck, Xi’an roujiamo, Guilin rice noodles, and Shanghai soup dumplings.
  7. Admire the stunning karst landscape as you travel across the Li River, see the panoramic view from a hilltop, and take a trip on a bamboo raft.
  8. Hike in a Chinese minority area – the Longji Rice Terraces – and experience the local culture and taste some delicious food.
  9. See the modern face of mainland China in Shanghai and have a nighttime stroll along the Bund.
  10. Drink a glass of wine in a bar or enjoy the glorious nighttime view of Shanghai from one of the skyscrapers.

Itinerary for 7 Days in China

How can you arrange your 7-day trip in China? First, pick your favorite cities and attractions, such as Beijing, Shanghai, the Great Wall, and the Terracotta Army. Then try to divide your trip into several sections according to different cities. For example, 3 days in Beijing, 1 day in Xi’an, 1 day in Guilin, and finally 1 or 2 days in Shanghai. You will know how to arrange your trip after you have decided which cities you want to go to and which attractions you want to visit.

However, you may be faced with a common embarrassing situation that you either don’t want a 7-day China tour without some free time to experience the local culture or that tailoring a private tour costs a lot of money. Sometimes, choosing a local 1-day tour is more convenient.

Travel Tips

  1. Cost: You have many choices available for your trip in China no matter whether you want to stay in a comfortable 5-star hotel or a clean bed and breakfast. The cheapest hostel costs about 30 yuan (5 USD) for a bed. A simple meal is about 20 yuan (3 USD).
  1. Food: In most city centers, you can find both Chinese food and Western food, but you won’t have a choice in small towns or remote areas.
  2. Don’t drink any tap water: Chinese people never drink tap water unless it has been boiled in a kettle. Buy bottled water wherever you go in China.
  3. Transportation: Traveling by subway is best in big cities and taking a taxi is best in small cities. For trips under 4 hours, taking a high-speed train is more convenient than a flight.
  4. Best times: Generally speaking, April, May, September, and October are the most comfortable months to travel in China.
  5. Dates you should avoid: It’s not a good time to travel in China during public holidays, unless you want to experience the local culture.
  6. How can you go to China? Apply for a visa, plan your trip, buy your tickets, and just start your trip. You can travel in China alone although you will face the language barrier. If you are going to transit in China, you can also benefit from the 72-hour visa-free policy and visit China without a visa.
