What can I expect from China?
China has 22 unique provinces. With so much to see and do in this vast country, it can often get overwhelming to plan a trip – especially for first-time travelers. The following China travel guide will help you plan your trip and have the time of your life.
Things to See and Do in China
Suggested daily budget
30-50 EUR / 33-56 USD
(Note: This is a suggested budget assuming you’re staying in a hostel, eating out a little, cooking most of your meals, and using local transportation.
Using the budget tips below, you can always lower this number. However, if you stay in fancier accommodation or eat out more often, expect this to be higher!)

TRAVEL INSURANCE FOR CHINA
I’m always surprised how many people travel without travel insurance. For me, it’s as essential to travel as buying a plane ticket, backpack or accommodation, and I never go without it.
Although China is relatively safe, unexpected natural disasters can always happen and I’ve witnessed people getting laptops and phones pickpocketed first hand.
Adequate insurance not only provides you with medical coverage (if you get sick or break your leg), but also covers things like your camera full of epic shots getting damaged or stolen, your flights getting cancelled, or you getting caught up in a natural disaster.
In short, it’s an insurance against potential issues that arise when you’re traveling and can save your life (or at the very least, a lifetime of debt).
GET READY TO DISCOVER CHINA!
China is one of my favorite travel destinations and I’d recommend anyone interested in Asia and history to visit. The Great Wall of China and the Forbidden City are among some of the most impressive historic attractions around the world and should be on anyone’s bucket list.
