Best places for your summer vacation

1. Lhasa

Still looking for ordinary summer destinations with routine itineraries? It’s time to go off the beaten path, escape the pretentious city life and head down to Lhasa, Tibet. For many travelers, Tibet is trip of a lifetime and it seems to have something for everyone - fabulous weather, breathtaking scenery, spiritual religion, overwhelming culture and truly wonderful people…… If you have no time to travel around Tibet, at least pay a visit to Lhasa (famous holy destination for affordable China tours), the capital of Tibet, which is totally different from other capitals you have visited. Go now, before it becomes touristy.

The name of Lhasa means “Holy Land” in Tibetan language and it also famous as the “City of Sunshine”. Lhasa is the spiritual center of Tibet as well as the center of Tibetan culture, economy and religious activities. Although facing intense ultraviolet radiation in the daytime, Lhasa is not hot, suitable to come throughout the year with relatively pleasant weather. Just remember to bring something like sun block cream, sunglasses, sunhat, etc. to avoid sunburn and dry weather.

Lhasa enjoys the highland temperate semi-arid monsoon climate without extremely hot summer or severely cold winter. The weather in Lhasa is mild with an average temperature of about 8℃. Summer is the peak season for visiting Lhasa when the weather is relatively mild and humid with crystal clear sky and flowers in bloom. What’s more, it is the time to experience the famous Tibet Shoton Festival and Buddha Exhibition. Annual rainfall mainly falls from the June to September. So, if you are planning a summer vacation in Lhasa, please remember to take your rain gear. The rain will not influence too much as it usually rains at night.

With rich cultural and historical legacy, Lhasa has many places of interest and tourist attractions for top 10 China tour packages both in Lhasa urban areas and outskirts. Among the highlights are the Potala Palace, Jokhang Temple, Norbulingka, Barkhor Street, Drepung Monastery, Sera Monastery, Gandan Monastery, Naga Temple, and Ramoche Temple, Namtso Lake and Yangbajain Hot Spring.

2. Beidaihe Beach Resort

Summer is the perfect time to hit the beach. Then, where to find the ideal beach in China? We recommend the Beidaihe Beach Resort. Plenty of modern holiday villages, public bathing places and other recreation facilities have been well constructed to cater for various needs. From bungalows to golf courses, speed boat ride and ballroom dancing to tasty snacks and delicious seafood, Beidaihe Beach Resort has all the essential elements of a beach adventure. Although the sand and sea are not those of a tropical beach spot, they have their own charm. Blue sea water and white soft sands on the long beach make the Beidaihe Beach an ideal destination to sunbathe, swim and have other water funs.

Beidaihe Beach Resort is recommended as a top summer destination in China not only because the fun of its beach activity and the quality of its water, but also because of its pleasant weather in summer. The average temperature in the hottest period in the summer is about 24℃, much cool than Beijing (72-hour China visa free). During the day time, winds blow from the sea and the air is cool and refreshing. At night, the land wind comes which is also cool.

Beidaihe Beach Resort, also called Beidaihe Scenic Spot, is situated at the southwest of Qinhuangdao City, Hebei Province. Beidaihe Scenic Spot has lots of places of interest and tourist attractions. Among all, the highlights are the Tiger Stone Marine Park, Pigeon Nest Park, Camel Rock, Eagle Corner Pavilion, Gully Leading to the Heaven, Lianfeng Hill Park, Lotus Flower Rock Park and Whispering Rock. Pigeon Nest Park has long been known as one of the best bird-watching sites in the world. Birdwatchers can observe an array of migratory storks during spring each year, such as Oriental White, Red-crowned, Hooded and White-naped storks, etc. And the Yingjiao Pavilion on the top of Pigeon Nest Park is a popular place for watching the sunrise.
