Trip Notes

Q: What is the best time to visit China?

A:The best times to visit China are spring (April–May) and autumn (September–October), when most of the popular places have their most tourism-friendly weather.

Q: Should I apply for a visa now, or should I wait until closer to the time of travel?

A:The Chinese visa is generally valid to enter Chinafor 3 months from the issue date. Please apply for your visa within 3 months of entry into China, according to your travel itinerary, and avoid expiry of the visa. Also don't apply too late to avoid the extra cost of express application processing. Usually it is recommended to apply about 6 weeks prior to travel and not to book things (like flights) that can't be refunded until you get a visa. Typically tourist visas are processed in four working days.

Q:Will the Winter Olympics be held in 2022?

A: The 2022 Winter Olympics are still set to take place on time, despite difficulties caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Effective measures were taken after the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic in China, which became one of the first countries to restore its economy. It aims to provide COVID-safe and high-quality conditions for hosting the 2022 Winter Olympics.
