How to Plan a China Trip from Hong Kong

From Hong Kong to the Next Destination

Our customers usually choose the following cities to visit after their Hong Kong tours:

  • Beijing: the capital city of China, Beijing is a better choice for the arrival destination from Hong Kong because of the convenient transportation, 144-hour visa-free policy, and more travel choices
  • Chengdu: the hometown of pandas, a paradise for foodies, and a city that implements the 144-hour transit visa-free policy
  • Guilin: karst landscape, idyllic countryside in Yangshuo

Tips for Planning a China Tour from Hong Kong:

Be aware of the visa policy. Visitors from approximately 160 countries are allowed to enter Hong Kong without visas. If you are eligible for the 72-hour/144-hour visa-free transit policy in key cities in the Chinese mainland, such as Beijing, Shanghai, Chengdu, and Guilin, you can travel to China from Hong Kong without a visa.

Think of the travel time. Generally speaking, you need at least 10 days for your China tours from Hong Kong, of which you need 2 days for Hong Kong and 8 days for a basic China combo travel route. If your time is limited, you can just tour one city from Hong Kong, such as Beijing, Shanghai, or Guilin. Alternatively, contact us to tailor-make your unique tour.
