In winter, as most places of China are getting pretty cold, tourists’ numbers drop and holiday-goers begin to flock to south for sunshine and the last pockets of warmth. Since the high season for China tours fades away, the price for accommodation and admission fees just go down greatly because of less demand, many travelers particularly prefer to travel China during this period to discover the winter-beauty of China at low cost but high rewards. ChinaTour.com just recommends the following places to hang out for your winter vacation.
Spending a winter holiday in Hainan would be the best choice for any travelers considering its favorable climate and breathtaking scenery. The temperature of Hainan is just about 20℃ within a year, endowing it mesmerizing landscape all year round. When enjoying your China tour of Hainan in winter, surfing Hainan should never be missed. Annual surfing competition in Shimei Bay & Sun Moon Bay is held in winter. As the surfing season gets underway, hordes of Chinese flee the cold mainland for the warmer climes of the southern island. Meander along the stretching beaches, enjoy the stroke of the sea-breeze and expose yourself in the cozy sunshine. So fantastic!
Top2: Gulang Yu in Xiamen
Gulang Yu is a sedate retreat of meandering lanes and shaded warrens of backstreets, where an architectural twilight of more than 1000 villas are set up. The crumbling buildings and ancient banyan trees make it a great place to spend a few days soaking up its charms. Walk along Gulang Yu and enjoy the tranquility that cannot be experienced in the bustling bib cities. Randomly hang into a small coffee bar and immerse yourself in the extraordinary ambience of it for an afternoon, enjoying the most peaceful and leisured time in your life.
