Why should I use a travel agency when I come to China?

China is different. It is vast and intricate, it is undergoing rapid change, and we do things differently here.

Clear communication is a major challenge, and even sophisticated travelers run into difficulties that need local assistance to resolve them. Your guide book may be useful in other foreign countries, but it's of only limited help in China. Local rules or practice may seem odd or unfamiliar -it helps to have an experienced agent make sure that your bookings are right.

Price and star-ratings are not always a reliable guide to quality.

So it makes sense to get help from a reliable agency that knows the ropes and can do the hard bits for you, see that your arrangements work well and avoid nasty surprises. Client feedback hotels, guides, tours and facilities is also the most reliable guide to quality and value.

The written and spoken language is a major hurdle and English-speaking visitors are not a majority. Information in English is not always easy to find, so making your own arrangements can be very difficult. The younger people (under 30) in the larger cities are more likely to speak some English, but away from the major cities, and the further west you go, the less it is spoken or understood. But there is so much here that people want to see, and travel advisors can arrange the right tours for you, with the right tour guides.

Above all, a travel agency has the knowledge and experience to make your trip happen, the way you want it to.
