China In 2 Weeks: What To Do and Where To Go

By Seyra Rico - 10:36 PM

China is a vast country and at the time of writing, relatively untouched by the ravages of mass tourism. This is what makes it a great destination for a 2-week holiday, or longer if time and budget allow. There is simply so much to see and do in China, it can be hard to know where to start. Luckily, securing the services of an experienced China tour specialist can make this much simpler.

Your China tour specialist can recommend the must-see sights based on your time constraints and build you an itinerary that suits your tastes. Although China tours are growing in popularity, a China destination expert will enable you to see what you want to see without being overrun with tour buses, etc.


As previously mentioned, China is a vast country with points of interest in almost every province, so a little prior planning is essential. Please see below for a list of the most popular attractions that can be combined in order to have the trip of a lifetime.

  • Great Wall of China – The first destination on almost everyone’s China tours itinerary is the Great Wall of China. This stunning piece of engineering is said to be visible from space but despite the technology of the 21st century, there are still millions of people living alongside this wall leading the lives they have always done. 
  • The Terracotta Army in Xian – This is another must-visit place for all tourists to China. Said to have laid underground for over 2000 years, it was uncovered by farmers digging a well in 1974. In 1987, this place was granted World Heritage status.
  • Tibet – A little off the beaten track in comparison to some other places but well worth it providing you have the time. This magical place is largely barren but boasts the exquisite type of landscape that can only be seen when you’re in proximity to the world’s largest mountain range, the mighty Himalayas. The indigenous culture in Tibet is in complete contrast to the rest of the country and if only for this reason should be on everybody’s travel bucket list.
  • Giant Pandas in Chengdu – If you have the time, you must visit the giant pandas in Chengdu. Chengdu has four reserves that serve as homes for these magnificent bears with a breeding centre as the main highlight. The other reserves are also world-renowned but perhaps more applicable to panda enthusiasts rather than a tourist on a schedule.

The four highlights above merely scratch the surface of what China can offer. Travel times should be taken into account as well, with air travel being the most convenient for relatively short-term tourists. If there is anything you’d specifically like to visit or a place in China you’ve always dreamed of visiting, tell your tour specialist. It may be possible to book a private tour if you are traveling with a group or otherwise extend your stay by a few days. Wherever you decide to go to China, one thing is guaranteed, you will have a holiday to remember.
