With the aim of offering the best price and promote the local economy, we have included a daily visit to a touristic interesting shop (buying is optional). These shops are interesting for adults and especially for children because they usually offer exhibitions about the different production processes with duration no longer than 20 minutes. If the client is not interested in this kind of visits, we can exclude them from the itinerary, but an extra cost will be applied to the final price.

In remote areas of China is possible that we couldn’t satisfy the same requirements of western food, amenities and facilities that could be expected from more developed cities such as Shanghai or Beijing. We beg for your sympathy and understanding.
