4 Things To Do When You Visit China

Disclosure: this is a collaborative post

If you are planning to visit China soon, then there are a whole host of things that you can do. A lot of people don’t think about China when they think about places to travel as they assume that there isn’t much there, but they are wrong. The good news is that we’re here to set you straight, giving you some ideas of fun things that you can do if you were to visit this great country. So, let’s get started.

Of course, the first thing that we’re going to recommend is that you book a trip to Disney. Many people forget that there is a Disney park in China, and that’s a shame because it’s actually awesome. If you look it up online, there are some rides that they have that are exclusive to this Shanghai park and they are incredible, definitely not something to miss out on.

This is something that you are going to have to book well in advance because ticket prices are cheaper if you do this. You don’t have to spend the whole of your trip in Disney if you want to explore a little more, but this is great for those who love the magical place.

The Great Wall

If you are a history buff, or you are someone who loves to see sights, then The Great Wall is somewhere that you need to visit. We’re sure that you know all about the history, and if you do go there you will find tour guides who will give you more information on this structure, so we’re not going to go into too much detail. Just know that even if it might seem a little boring to look at the wall, you will be in awe if you do.


While you’re in China, we do recommend that you take a day trip to Macau. There are some beautiful sights here, stunning views that you are not going to want to miss. If you book in with a company that can show you all of those amazing places, you will surely get the best that Macau has to offer.

Hug A Panda

The last thing that we’ve got on our list is that you can book in to hug a panda! Hugging a panda might just be a once in a lifetime experience seeing as they all live in China, and it’s not something that many people get to say they have done. If you go online, you will find places that allow you to book in to hug a panda, and it’s certainly not an experience that we recommend you miss because come on, who hasn’t wanted to hug a big bear at one point in their life?

So there you have it then. These are some of the awesome things that you can do if you are planning to visit China at some point in the near future. We do recommend that you book these things in advance just to ensure that you are getting the absolute best that China has to offer, and that you’re not missing out on a single experience. Have the best time!

  3. I'd love to visit every Disney. I wish we would have went when we were in Paris, alas we were pressed for time as it was. Hugging a panda should be on everyone's bucket list. How cool would that be?!

  4. I can't imagine going to China but what a dream. I would definitely visit the Great Wall! Maybe Disney second.

  5. We visited China in 2004 and had such a wonderful experience. I do wish we had hugged a panda - that would be an experience of a lifetime. Thanks for the other great sites to visit. Stephanie

  6. China looks like an amazing place to visit! So much vibrancy in the cities, but at the same time, incredible nature, too!

  7. I would love to visit Disney in China, with their technology I can only image how cool their Disney Park would be. I would also visit the Great Wall also.

  8. The panda experience is so under promoted lol... but it should definitely be one of the things you do in China

  9. I will never visit China, but you've presented a lot of things for people to do if they visit. I'll pass thus along to friends.

  10. These are good things to keep in mind when traveling to China. These all sound like awesome destinations.

  11. There's a Disney park in China? The only reason I would visit China is to eat its great food and to visit the Great Wall. I never thought or knew there's a Disney park there too. Thanks for sharing.

  12. Omg I would looove to hug a Panada, I'm adding this to the list for my next visit to China. Thank you for sharing these awesome lists!
