Tourism is a burgeoning industry in People’s Republic of China (Mainland)(PRC) making it not only a prime business destination but a must see travel stop. To ensure that you enjoy your trip, Chinese Translation Pro has compiled these handy travel tips as well as useful bits of information to take with you.
When to Go: If you looking for the lowest price on travel, plan your trip during the Low Season; December, January and February. The Peak Travel Season pertains to May, September and October. March, April, June, July, August and November are perhaps the best travel months with respect to price, weather and entertainment.
Getting There: The national airline is Air People’s Republic of China (Mainland)(PRC). As is true of any flight, travelers should confirm their return flight reservations; airline overbooking has led to people being stranded in People’s Republic of China (Mainland)(PRC). Also, be prepared for a lengthy flight. A nonstop from New York to Beijing lasts 14 hours while a charter to Shanghai lasts upwards of 18 hours.
There are four airport hubs within People’s Republic of China (Mainland)(PRC); Beijing/Peking (BJS/PEK), Guangzhou Baiyun International, Shanghai Hongqiao (SHA) and Shanghai Pudong (PVG). Each airport includes taxis, public and shuttle buses, duty free shops, banks/currency conversions, post offices, business and internet facilities and bars and restaurants. Important to note is the departure tax, which is paid in Chinese currency only. Children under 12 and transit passengers, proceeding within 24 hours of travel, are exempt.
Once There: There are many transportation options via rail, sea and automobile. Railways provide the principal means of transportation throughout People’s Republic of China (Mainland)(PRC). The trains are affordable, safe and well maintained operating between major cities; services include Beijing to Guangzhou, Shanghai, Harbin, Chengdu and Urumqi. There are three types of trains, the Express option being the best of the three. There are four varieties of fare: hard seat, soft seat (only on short-distance trains such as the Hong Kong to Guangzhou (Canton) line), hard sleeper and soft sleeper. Children under 3 ft tall travel free and those under 4ft pay a quarter of the fare. Train travel is often a comfortable experience albeit, a time consuming one, due to the distance between destinations.
National plane travel is a time saving alternative. Flights from Shanghei to Beijing, Hong Kong to Shanghei and Guangzhou to Shanghei are approximately 2 hours; however, the roundtrip travel costs average $350 USD. Although express train travel between these cities ranges from 12 to 18 hours, the prices are decidedly more affordable, between $15 to $30 USD.
One clever tip: Traveling in a foreign nation can be very exotic, fun and intimidating. This is particularly true if you don’t speak the language. It will be smart to bring a wallet size “survival language guide” – China travel guide in your wallet at all times. So you can at least express yourself in the emergency situation such as “where is the restroom”, “I am allergic to….”, ” I need to see doctor…” etc… You can download this nice small guide booklet at our Chinese translate website: www.chinesetranslationpro.com.
Fine Eats: A meal in People’s Republic of China (Mainland)(PRC) need not include won ton or dim sum to be considered delicious and authentic. People’s Republic of China (Mainland)(PRC) offers a vast array of dining options including Muslim, Korean, American and traditional Chinese.
