China Itinerary Sample – 8 Days

China Itinerary Sample

Last April 2011, our family went to China for a vacation tour and our travel agency was Uni Orient. Here’s our itinerary 🙂

Basically, the tour is being sold as a 8 day package tour but for me, spending 1 day at the airport doesn’t count so it is just a 7 day tour; China Itinenary. You will visit 4 cities (1 is just a stop over).

Since my sister has a better memory than me, allow me to copy her post on our itenirary. (I also wrote notes in my notebook while on tour but I missed writing the Bird’s Nest + Water cube in Beijing… I don’t know how I could miss that since we spent around 2 hours there).
