Jess "Only great things to say about this trip! We travelled for a few months and the China dragon trip was the best part. The trip allows you to see so much and really experience China in a unique way. It is extremely hard to communicate in China, therefore having the tour guides and transport already organised makes the trip run so much more smoothly and you make good use of your time there.

Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions about this tour.

    • Do I need a sleeping bag or is linen supplied in the hostels?

      All bedding – including sleeping bags and mats during Great Wall camping – is provided

    • What is the standard of accommodation?

      All of the hostels are clean, air-conditioned or have fans, are safe, have good showers, internet, washing machines and most importantly, have real Chinese character. People who stay at hostels are usually young people aged 18 to 35 who are travelling on a smaller budget than people staying at hotels. So it is easy to make friends and fun to hang out at the bar (all the hostels we stay at have cool bars and lounging areas to hang out). If you would like to stay in a private room though, that is absolutely possible as well as we have room upgrades available at the time of purchase.
