How to Plan A Yunnan Tours

The above itineraries are all well-designed based on our own experiences and feedback from our customers. Here are some tips to help you make the decision out of your interests, timing and budget.

How much time do you have in Yunnan?

Yunan refers to the vast land of the whole provinces. A short stay could only allow you a taste of one or two cities like Kunming, Dali or Lijiang which has flight connections with the other big cities. We always suggested at least 4 days to cover Kunming and Lijiang, 6 days to add in Dali, 8 days to go further to Shangrila. And 3-4 more days to cater for special interests like Tiger leaping gorge hiking, Dongchuan Red Land and Yuanyuang Rice Terraces Fields Photography. That all depends on your time and interests. Send a simple request to tailor make a Yunnan trip.    

When do you want to travel?

Climate vary a lot in different region of Yunnan. The northwest area sits on the high plateau bordering Tibet, which is depressingly cold in winter. The right season for Shangri-la is from May to October with flowers, trees and crystal-clear lakes. July and August are the rainy season, no hiking trips to Tiger Leaping gorge is suggested. Yuanyang Terraces Fields and Dongchuan Red Land turn on different faces in different season. The hot destinations of Kunming, Dali and Lijiang are suitable for travel all year around. Contact us for all you need.  

 

What kind of accommodation do you prefer?

Chain hotels in Yunnan are comparatively less than other popular big cities. Nature and culture lovers are interested in the homestays, boutiques or luxury resorts, to have close contact with the local people and their culture. Prices vary a lot from their location and decoration.    

 

Estimated budget for hotels in Yunnan city: 3-star chain hotels cost $70-90 on average; 4 stars are $90-$120; 5 star $1520-$200, resorts are $200+.

 

How to get to Yunnan?

Yunnan is a province in southern corner of China, bordering Myanmar, Laos and Vietnam. It has tight connections with south Asia via the capital city of Kunming, as well as all other major domestic cities. Getting around Yunnan is mainly by train and road journey. Different from the big cities, a well-organized transfer is always necessary in this area.

  • a memorable experience with Etripchina "We arranged 10 days tour of Beijing Shanghai Chengdu and Yangtze river in China. Tina was very helpful in suggesting trips. All of the guides,drivers were perfect. The Yangtze Cruise was a highlight of our tour. The scenery on Yangtze river was awesome. My favorite place on the boat was my balcony. I had tea on my cozy balcony every morning. It was a memorable experience."

  • Great company! "We have bought two day tours, Li River/Yangshuo and Longji Rice Terraces/Mountain Village. Excellent service! At first we exchanged emails and phone calls with Tina, a very kind professional, she organized everything. We had private tours and opted for a guide driver, in our case, Jiang Linfeng. He was very professional and helped us organize the schedule for the tours and even helped us get tickets for some other attractions, not included in the tours we paid, with a better/cheaper price. Everything was perfect! We did enjoy the tours and Guilin is a fantastic place, indeed! I do recommend EtripChina and the tours we did. Thank you, Tina and Jiang Linfeng!"

  • For our holiday to China, (family of 4)in May 2018, I decided to book all our sightseeing tours, airport transfers and internal train tickets via Etrip China. At first, I was a little apprehensive, as my only contact with them was through their website, however, I gained some confidence due to the excellent reviews on TripAdvisor. At the end of our holiday, I am happy to say, that we are extremely happy with the Etrip China Team for their excellent service. The vehicles used were spacious and comfortable. The drivers were always punctual, professional and courteous. The guides were knowledgeable, helpful and proficient in English. In short, I would strongly recommend, Etrip China, to anyone looking for an all inclusive private tour in China, at a good value price.

  • Tibet Trip Lhasa to EBC "We had a wonderful experience in our trip to Tibet in July, we took the tour from Lhasa to Mount Everest base camp. Overall, the tour was well organized and the accommodation was also pretty good. We did experience a few difficulties with our permits and plane tickets, but Tina (the lady from etrip who assited us on organizing the trip) was very professional and did her best to help us take quick decisions and overcome such difficulties so that we could enjoy our trip. Going to Tibet can be a challenging experience due to the high altitude and the long distances one must endure; however the landscapes and buddhist monasteries and temples make it all worth it!"

  • Etripchina is so much more than day tours in Guilin! "I highly recommend this company to handle your travel needs in China. I have used them myself and Tina has helped me organise an intense two week itinerary that took us all the way from Beijing to Xi'an to Chengdu (incl Leshan and Jiajiang) to Guilin to Yangshuo to Hangzhou to Shanghai (incl Suzhou and Tongli). Excellent guides, excellent hotels, the itinerary flowed like clockwork. Watched 7 performances along the way (Beijing Opera, Golden Mask in Beijing, Huaqing Palace in Xi'an, Sichuan Opera in Chengdu, Enduring Memories in Yangshuo, Impressions in Hangzhou and ERA in Shanghai. I forgot to add that the whole trip cost me under half of what other agencies were asking me. Amazing experience, all thanks to Tina and her staff!"

  • Fantastic journey of discovery "This is my 1st time booking with ETripChina. From start to end, the manager Niki Zhu, has been constantly updating the itinerary until we are fully satisfied. She even made a call to ask on how we are doing. I would definitely recommend them to anybody who would like to arrange a personalise trip with them. Good job ETripChina. Keep up your good work."
