When you Travel to Beijing, finding somewhere to stay is not a problem. While you book your Beijing Flights, your ticket providers may include accommodation, but make sure you do your research before accepting the offer.

There are many luxurious hotels you can stay in such as Eastern Air Jinjiang Hotel, which is a short distance from the Beijing Capital International Airport, but this is about an hours drive away from the centre of Beijing. In order to receive the full benefits of travelling around Beijing, it is better to be located in the centre of Beijing and preferably near a subway, so you can easily travel and see all the beautiful sites Beijing has to offer.

East Apartments is perfect for this. These beautiful apartments are located in the      Fulicheng gardens of the Chaoyang Central Business District. Not only are the  apartments located in the centre of Beijing where you will not fall short of finding spectacular places to eat, and sites to see, but the apartments are also gated of and guarded in a quite area, where you feel completely safe and peaceful. There is 24 hour security and this helps highlight the fact that security at the apartments is a top priority. The gardens that surround the apartments are beautiful; there are streams, water features, benches and greenery, which creates a pleasant and relaxing environment to be around, especially after a long day of exploring.

There are three or four bed room deluxe suites, which is ideal if you are travelling in a group. Unlike ordinary hotels, these apartments are fully furnished and include; dinning area, lounge area with sofas so comfortable you could fall asleep on them, a fully equipped kitchen, home entertainment system with HDTV, washing facilities, modern bathrooms as well as ironing facilities. There is a maid who comes daily to clean the apartment as well, and who will even do your laundry. Not only this, but there are also facilities to get food delivered to your apartment for days when you are tired and just want to eat. Additionally, there are free tennis courts to play in and the ability to go to a gym and swimming pool if you ask for it.

When you leave the apartment, there are locals living just outside, so you can enjoy Chinese people’s day to day life, and be part of it. Besides the good quality restaurants which you will come across, there are also smaller more authentic places to eat, which taste just as delicious but for the fraction of the price, which you wouldn’t find around top hotels.

The price of the apartment can vary depending on the time you go there and the availability of rooms at that time. On average it is about $107 a night, which may seem expensive, but for the true Beijing experience you are getting, it is well worth it. You can save some money by eating at the more authentic places described above.

So when you book your China Flights don’t forget to research accommodations and find one that suits you. Whether you want to stay somewhere cheap and cheerful, or extravagant, you can find it all in Beijing.

Chinese Writing Characters

On August 1, 2011, in Accomodation, Tours, Transportation, by Jack Li

A Chinese character, also known as a Han character, is a logogram used in writing Chinese (hanzi), Japanese (kanji), less frequently Korean (hanja), and formerly Vietnamese (hán tự), and other languages. Chinese characters are also known as Sino graphs, and the Chinese writing system as sinography. Chinese characters are the oldest continuously used system of writing […]

A Chinese character, also known as a Han character, is a logogram used in writing Chinese (hanzi), Japanese (kanji), less frequently Korean (hanja), and formerly Vietnamese (hán tự), and other languages. Chinese characters are also known as Sino graphs, and the Chinese writing system as sinography. Chinese characters are the oldest continuously used system of writing in the world. To come to China check out the following links! Air China, China Tours.

The number of Chinese characters contained in the Kangxi dictionary is approximately 47,035, although a large number of these are rarely used variants accumulated throughout history. Studies carried out in China have shown that full literacy in the Chinese language requires knowledge of between three and four thousand characters.

According to legend, Chinese characters were invented by Cangjie (c. 2650 BC), a bureaucrat under the legendary emperor, Huangdi. The legend tells that Cangjie was hunting on Mount Yangxu (today Shanxi) when he saw a tortoise whose veins caught his curiosity. Inspired by the possibility of a logical relation of those veins, he studied the animals of the world, the landscape of the earth, and the stars in the sky, and invented a symbolic system called ‘zì` the first Chinese characters. It was said that on the day the characters were born, Chinese heard the devil mourning, and saw crops falling like rain, as it marked the beginning of the world.

The oldest Chinese inscriptions that are indisputably writing are the so-called oracle bone script. These were identified by scholars in 1899 on pieces of bone and turtle shell being sold as medicine and by 1928, the source of the oracle bones had been traced back to modern Xiaotun village at Anyang in Henan Province, where official archaeological excavations in 1928–1937 discovered 20,000 oracle bone pieces, about 1/5th of the total discovered. The inscriptions were records of the divinations performed for or by the royal Shang household. The oracle bone script is a well-developed writing system, attested from the late Shang Dynasty (1200–1050 BC). Only about 1,400 of the 2,500 known oracle bone script logographs can be identified with later Chinese characters and thus be deciphered by paleographers.

The art ofwriting Chinese characters is called Chinese calligraphy. It is usually done with ink brushes. In ancient China, Chinese calligraphy is one of the Four Arts of the Chinese Scholars. There is a minimalist set of rules of Chinese calligraphy. Every character from the Chinese scripts is built into a uniform shape by means of assigning it a geometric area in which the character must occur. Each character has a set number of brushstrokes; none must be added or taken away from the character to enhance it visually, lest the meaning be lost. Finally, strict regularity is not required, meaning the strokes may be
accentuated for dramatic effect of individual style. Calligraphy was the means
by which scholars could mark their thoughts and teachings for immortality, and
as such, represent some of the more precious treasures that can be found from
ancient China. If you want to enrich your culture you must come to China,check out the following link for additional information… China Flights.

Handbook for International Travel Tours to China

International travel is always complicated, especially if your destination is China. First, you need to apply for an entry VISA for mainland tour and another special entry permit to Travel to Tibet.

International travel is always complicated, especially if your destination is China. First, you need to apply for an entry VISA for mainland tour and another special entry permit to Travel to Tibet. Secondly, you may be refused by some low-cost China Hotels if you just show up at the counter, because several hotels are not available for foreigners. Thirdly, most of the time you need to join a travel agency that provides services for international travelers, as people are speaking Chinese rather than English. So this article is going to introduce some information about these concerns.

Apply for the VISA. The exceptions are Hong Kong and Macao, otherwise you need to apply for the entry VISA before entering China. You can apply for the VISA in local Chinese consulates and your passport should be valid for at least 6 months. The type of VISA is usually L, the travel VISA, which is valid for 3 months. The process duration is usually a week. Moreover, you need to get Tibet Travel Permit, or Tibet Tourism Bureau (TTB) for entering Tibet area. You will need an additional transit permit to go to certain cities in Tibet, such as Mt. Everest Base camp. These two permits can only be applied through travel agencies, excluding the government officers, diplomats and journalists. It generally takes 1-10 business days. If you travel to Tibet by air, you need to show these document when check in.

Hotels. Some of the hotels are not available for foreigners. One of the reasons is that they do not have the system to check your passport information. There are many motels or express hotels popular among

Chinese and their prices are relatively low. However, some branches in sensitive areas cannot accept foreigners. Such as Shanghai Home Inn in Railway station is not available for foreigners, while other branches in Shanghai can accept foreigners. This is because the railway station is sensitive and restricted by the government. My suggestion is to book your reservation through the online agencies. For example, you can go to tripadviser.com and search the hotel information, reviews, and the online providers. Chinatraveldepot.com is run by China Youth Travel Service company, and this website provides service mainly for foreigners. Therefore, they have already screened those improper hotels and information for you.

Travel Agencies. If you are not a backpacker type of traveler, then the quality of your vacation in China largely depends on the travel agency you have chosen. The professional level of guide, the arrangement of tour

packages, the vehicles and restaurants provided are all essential part of choosing a travel agency. On chinatraveldepot.com, you can get these things customized. You can just pick the general 7-day or 2-week tour package, then replace some of the items with your own interests. You can also rent cars on this website like you do in your own place. The difference is that renting a car through this website, you will get a driver and translator as well. So it is more like a private tour. If you decide to follow a travel agency, you do not need to worry about the domestic flights, the hotels, places, schedules. But you still need to get your VISA to enter China at first.

International travel needs much more preparation than domestic travels, especially the china travel where you speak completely different language, and you need VISA to get in. Despite some sensitive issues, it is still worthy once you start your journey in this ancient cultural land. If you are interested, please go to the travel section for more details.

If you want to Travel to Beijing, china, one of the most important thing is to find a hotel there. But how will you find the hotel which fits all your requirements? Asking a travel department for help is the best choice perhaps. For example, the china travel department offers a large range of hotel in different prices for your China Tours.

First, you should find their webside on the internet. It is the http://www.chinatraveldepot.com/CH1C5-5-stars-Beijing-Hotels. You need to find the column in the left side where you can fill in your information. Fill in the name of the city (your destination in China), the check in date, the check out date, the number of rooms and the class of your room. Then if you have some particular requirements about the brand of the hotel, such as 7 days Inn, Super 8, Orange etc, just choose it in the “hotel group” list. Then press the “search button”. For example, I click all my requirements as shown in the right picture and start to search.

Secondly, all the results it found is shown in a brief map of Beijing( the picture on the left side). The advantage of this search is it shows the results in a map first with blue signs. You can click the blue button to get a view of the hotel. In this way, you can find the hotel in the exaectly district that you want to live in. The map is basic on the Google map, so you can get a closer look on the hotel you choose by magnifying the picture.

Thirdly, you have decided which district and hotel to live in and click the button of the hotel to have a detail view. Generally, the detail view of a hotel includes the hotel policy, hotel features, price of standard rooms, other room types and hotel facilities. What is more, it offers pictures of the hotels for you to have a closer view. If you can not make the decision at once, you may check the “travelers review” and see how others feel about it.

The last step is “book it”. By the way, you need to be a registered user of the china travel department. It only requires you to fill in some basic member information.

In addition, you can also find your hotels in Beijing by using the”hotels by theme”.

Do you know where China is? Do you know the lives of local Chinese people? Do you want to have an adventurous china travel? If so, just join us on China Tours and find your answers here.

China is located in the east of Asia, and faces the Pacific Ocean. With its vast territory and abundant resources, China attracts many tourists each year who want to discover this amazing country with its varied scenery and interesting culture.. In the following article, I will share some travel tips with you.

Tips on Flights

When searching for flights, we usually want to find some discounts. I recommend a reliable and reputable travel agency in China called China Youth Travel Service (CYTS) .You can find hotel, flights, deals, and cruise information on its website–www.chinatraveldepot.com. Generally speaking, you type in the date, time, destination and departure airport, and then you will get all the information about the flight you are looking for. The advantage of doing this is that you can find competitive prices by comparing different airline tickets.

Tips on Hotels

Having a good rest during your stay is very important as it will give you enough energy to visit everything you want to see in China. Therefore it is necessary to find a comfortable hotel to stay in. In China there are different types of hotels, from three-star to five-start accommodation and from luxury hotels and family hotels to cheaper hostels and inns and so on. In fact, family hotels are very popular amongst travelers, because they can be more comfortable and the prices are very reasonable. A good example is Jinjiang Inns. It is a famous brand in China’s budget hotel brand and the best of its kind because it is clean, cheap, new, and well located. Besides, Jinjiang Inns features a variety of room types that will meet your overnight requirements. The quality of the bedding will guarantee your good night’s dream, and the uncomplicated modern room design will lessen your stress. Jinjiang Inn is internationally known as the ideal resting place for business travelers or tourists, whichever you may be.

Tips on Travel Package

When you are making your travel itinerary, there are a few tips you need to know. Firstly, you need to decide whether you want to travel in a group or by yourself. If you want to travel in a group, it is best to find a travel agency, as they can make a clear itinerary for you, and you do not have to worry about the transport, the accommodation and all the other details. However, if you prefer to travel alone, you will need to find some travel tips on the internet or go to your friends who have travel experience for help. Therefore I believe that it is better for a new traveler to travel in a group so that they have less stress and feel safer.

Tips on Traffic

Here, I will take Beijing for example. Nowadays, Beijing has an efficient traffic system, such as the taxis, buses and the subway. It is very easy for you to travel around Beijing. The subway in Beijing is very fast and convenient, there are more than ten lines and many tourist attractions are connected with the subways, such as The Summer Palace, which is on Line 4. Usually there will be a subway every three minutes, the first departure time is at 5:30 in the morning and the last departure time is at 11:00 in the evening. You can also transfer whenever you need to, but keep an eye on your luggage as there is a security check before you get on the train.

So, this is our china travel, go and  book your China Flights and have a great trip.
