Welcome to China
Known as the world's most populated country, China is a land that lives in both the past and present with ancient temples sitting alongside dizzying skyscrapers and neon lights. Make sure to visit between April and May or September and October for the best weather. 1 USD equals 7.06518 Chinese Yuan, so make sure you prep your wallet accordingly.

Street Food Love
With 56 ethnic groups and eight recognized major cuisines, it's safe to say that Chinese food is full of flavor. Make sure you hit the streets to try some of the country's yummy eats like hand-pulled noodles, spicy crawfish, kebabs and more.
A trip to China is simply not complete without a stop at one of the world's greatest wonders, the Great Wall of China. Some of the best sections of the Wall to visit are Mutianyu, Jinshanling, Jiankou, and Simatai. Get there early to avoid the crowds.
