John Lewis

I always use China Link for my travelling needs. They know all that there is to know about travelling to China including flights, hotels, trips and activities and more. I always recommend them to my friends too!

Margaret Bath

China Link is a really great resource for information on travelling in China. They know all there is to know about currency, food, health and safety as well as fun things to do and see. 

Coral Horndean

I travelled to China last year and was quite concerned about the huge cultural differences between there and here in the UK. I contacted China Link and they gave me loads of great information which made me feel much more comfortable and at ease. 

Guided Tours in France

Visit France this year

Chinese outbound tourism is increasing year after year. Large population along with central politics encouraging the Chinese people to go out and see the world result in massive waves of tourists hopping on planes and crossing the planet in all possible directions, avid to see new things and take selfies with them on the background. The Chinese passion for international tourism is growing year after year, and it doesn't seem to decline. The world must be ready for this affluence, and take all measures needed to receive and make a profit out of this dynamic market.

The most visited sites by Chinese tourists are close countries like Japan, Taiwan and Singapore, mainly because of geographical and cultural closeness. However, they do like to see other places and travel even farther, and when you get out of those Eastern neighbors of them, guess which country is on top of their preferences?

If you've read the headline of this article, then you got it right. It's France.

This amazing European country is the main touristic destination worldwide, with around 80 million people from all continents visiting it every year, and a significant portion of them is Chinese. They love to see the trademark spots of France, like the Eiffel Tower and the museums, try their food, visit their countryside and see all the wonders France has to offer.

France from the inside

City tours in France, especially in crowded destinations like Paris, are a dime a dozen. You will find thousands of offers with a simple Google search. If you want to see the average France tour, with all checklist landmarks and the most renowned places, then you can book any of them, any time. You will see exactly what everyone sees, and learn the same things everyone else knows. That's perfect if that's your drill, you do the thing and everyone's happy.

Now, if you give it a bit more of thought, you will realize that big cities like Paris and other urban regions of France definitively have so much more to offer than that. How can you embrace in a day all the fantastic things such cities have? Are you really that interested in going where everyone else goes, just because they do so over and over, that you would be willing to miss thousands of hidden wonders that await right around the corner, where the tourist crowds fade away?

Wouldn't it be super interesting to see those secret places, walk down side alleys, discover new places and take photos visiting something other than the Eiffel Tower for once? If this sounds tempting to you, then welcome to the other side of tourism, the original and daring few who are up for days and days of endless discoveries and interesting experiences in one of the most wonderful countries in the world.

But how do you do that? How can you find those hidden places? How can you book an alternative city tour that you will remember forever and will make your stories of your holidays the attraction of family reunions and friends meetings for a long, long while?
