Base on our experience, most of our travel expense is on the hotel, the food and tour service are really cheap in China.what do we come here for?-sightseeing and cultural experiences on this new land! why do we have to spend more on hotels
? So our tips are:
1. Book a hotel through China's LOCAL hotel network - like HotelGuideChina____com. and etc
With wider hotel choices (including international hotels), better local discounts, they don't need prepayment for hotel, so there is no fee for cancellation, you just pay when arriving in the hotel.
2. Book tour packages directly from China's LOCAL hotel network(like the former one). the prices are cheaper and the designs of those trips are more to your specific taste. like, you know most people who come to china and go visit the great wall have been travelled along the same path ,which can be quite boring sometimes...somehow the local network provide you with some amazing choices for a hike in china that you have never had.
3.Or if you wanna stay in China for a longer time(more than one month)then renting a serviced apartment would be an ideal choice for you.There is no doubt that its much cheaper than staying in the hotel,whats more,maybe you can get a homecoming feeling living in a cozy apartment ,where you can also get serviced(breakfast and cleaning stuff; or you may handle it yourself too-like cooking a tasty pasta to your own style(taste;)
