"very good arrangement"
If you are interested in China, then you must choose this tour. The China Travel Depot has a very good arrangement. As for the 10 days, i have seen a lot of sceneries and i have made friends with lots of people. Anyway, compared to north part of China, i prefer the south part, that is Hangzhou and Shanghai. The local food in Shanghai is very delicious, and it made me feel i was in heaven.

Overall Satisfaction:
Finally, i come to Tian'anmen Square! There are so many people here, and it is really crowded. I think it is very interesting, it seems that every Chinese people would take a photo with the picture of Mao, maybe they all admire him. If you come here, just follow you guide, it is easy to get lost.

Asked by Ms.Karen (United States/America)

Solo Traveler and Single Supplement
I am doing research for a trip to China I plan to take in a few years. I love to travel to other countries, customize my own tour and visit the sites with a local tour guide. Can you please tell me if there is a single supplement for just 1 traveler and how much it usually is? Thank you for your assistance.
