China is a huge and diverse country. If possible, consider China independent travel to see a more personal, up-close look at this culture and its people. By contacting a university in the city where you’ll visit, you may be able to hire a college student to show you some of the sights. The locals and college students living in China know where to go to see the real China.

Walk the Local Streets
Find a local or a college student to take you to an area of town so you can see how the locals live. The houses and the businesses look like they are from a movie set. The sights and smells have to be experienced in person.
