Advice on travelling in China
I enjoy travelling in China and want others to enjoy it just as much. China is a relatively tourist-friendly environment, and few visitors encounter any real problems, but I do meet people on my travels who’ve become frustrated, discouraged or downright exhausted by its unfamiliar culture and strange script.
Though twenty years has taught me a lot, I can’t promise to answer very specific questions (such as ‘Liam, how do I get from Suzhou to Zhouzhuang on a Sunday evening?’ or ‘Liam, where in Kaifeng can I eat the best Five-Spice Fried Bread?’). If I can’t solve your particular problem I’ll try to point you in the direction of other websites I’ve found useful.
What I can give you is thoughtful, sincere and free advice on travelling in China.
China is a big place, rapidly changing, and thousands of miles from Warwickshire. I strive to be accurate, but can’t offer any guarantees. As you’ll understand, I can’t accept any responsibility for the consequences of decisions made or actions taken as a result of my advice and would always recommend that you canvass as broad a range of opinions as possible. If I refer you to third-party sites which I’ve found useful in my own travel preparations this doesn’t constitute endorsement or approval of their advice. Right, disclaimer over – now head off and enjoy China!
