Quick destination guide


Australians need to obtain a visa prior to travelling to China and make sure they've obtained the correct visa for their visit. Learn More

When to go

October is generally the best time to visit since the weather is pleasant and it isn't too crowded (expect for the first week). From April to May (Late Spring) is when the flowers begin to bloom and it starts to heat up. June to August is peak season and warmest but is a great time to visit the most remote areas such as Tibet. Learn More


It is advised you minimise your exposure to live poultry as Avian influenza continues to circulate throughout China. Major cities such as Shanghai, Beijing, and Guangzhou experience high levels of pollution, to reduce exposure you should follow advice from local authorities. Learn More

Packing List

What you'll pack will depend on the season you decide to travel and activities you'll be taking part in but there is no need to pack a power adaptor as the power points in China are similar to Australia. Learn More
