  • A real home from home

    "My wife and I stayed in this villa for a month, along with our daughter and son-in-law and 2 grandchildren aged 3 years and 8 months. The villa is situated in a quiet residential district, which to my mind is preferable to a dedicated tourist development. The villa is surrounded by a wall and has nice gardens. It felt very safe for our young grandchildren. The quality of the villa is very high and the whole place feels solid. It is decorated with some beautiful pictures and carvings. The beds are large and very comfortable. It very much felt like we were borrowing a house from a friend. There is free wifi, which is not superfast, but perfectly adequate for all normal Internet usage. We were able to make Skype video calls and stream music and video. There is a phone, which can be used to contact Jane or make quick local calls for a taxi or food. There is a 60" HD TV, with a good satellite package and DVD player. The kitchen is well equipped and the only things we had to add were some wine glasses and a sharp cooks knife, as most of the knives were pretty blunt. Things like toilet paper and garbage sacks were provided and there was a washer and dryer that we could use. Outside the pool area is very nice and comfortable and there's an American style gas grill. The maid came every 3 days and was really thorough. The pool was serviced about every 3 days and the gardener came in about once a week. Jane was a delight to deal with and very professional, both before we arrived and during our stay. She replied promptly to both emails and phone calls. There are quite a few good restaurants nearby and a search on Tripadvisor will give you many suggestions. It's as well to search for both Nai Harn and Rawai restaurants as you're situated between both and some restaurants in the same street can be listed under one or the other. There's a German bakery about 5 minutes away by car, which does excellent croissants, bread and pastries. There is also an Italian delicatessen, which is well stocked with hams, salamis, cheeses, oils and wine. For general shopping there is a large Tesco Lotus about 20 minutes away by car. If you require medical attention, the nearby Andaman Clinic is good, with a doctor who speaks very good English. There is also a paediatrician nearby. Our favourite beach was at Yanui, which is between Nai Harn and Rawai and is a nice quiet little beach with a surprisingly good restaurant/bar behind it. I would highly recommend this villa, particularly"

China Travel Tips

Getting to China Vacation Rentals

There are several major airport hubs in China and your destination will determine which airport is best for your arrival. If you plan to take in the historical and cultural sights of the capital city, it is most likely that you will travel to Beijing. The international airport is located just outside of the city and well connected through the public transportation systems. There are regularly scheduled flights from other major Southeast Asian cities as well as from North America and Australia. Alternate international airports can be found in Shanghai or Hong Kong. The airports are well equipped for international travelers and have easy access to taxis and public transportation systems. It’s not recommended to hire a car in China as driving is very challenging. Cities are highly congested; trains, city trams and monorails are far more efficient ways to get around the country. If you plan to head into more rural areas for sightseeing, you can make use of buses or hire a vehicle with a driver and guide to take you around.

Most Popular Seasons to Stay in Vacation Apartments in China

China is a country of extreme and diverse landscapes, and the climate varies accordingly. In Beijing, the summers can be sweltering and hot, interspersed with heavy rain showers which add to the humidity. Wintertime usually brings temperatures well below freezing. In general, the most popular time of year to visit is during August and September which are the autumn months. During this time, the temperatures are generally more moderate. Shanghai is located much further south and has a milder and more sub-tropical climate. The best seasons to travel are either spring, which is from March to May, or autumn which is September and October. Hong Kong has a tropical climate and during the summer months of June and July, the temperatures and humidity can get very high. Like many other parts of China, the more temperate seasons of spring and autumn are considered the best times of year to visit.

Visitors to China Vacation Houses

Most visitors to China have a strong interest in ancient Chinese history and culture. It is a nation with strong traditions and a rich and detailed history. There are many historic buildings, ancient temples and shrines that give testimony to various legends and heroes from the past. China is also a manufacturing giant and in terms of shopping, it is one of the most affordable retail destinations. Products range from electronic devices and gadgets to clothing and home furnishings. If you are particularly tall or large, you are unlikely to find any clothing sizes to fit you.

Major Tourist Destinations in China

There are a number of landmark attractions that most visitors to China want to see. Possibly the most famous is the Great Wall of China. While this stretches the length of the country, one of the most accessible places to see the wall is 120 kilometers north of Beijing in the town of Simatai. Other famous landmarks include the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square where the infamous protests were held. The Beihai Park is one of China’s oldest and most beautifully sculpted gardens and one of Beijing’s famous landmarks.

Shanghai is one of China’s most populous cities. Its landscape is characterized by rivers and lakes. Shanghai is home to many important temples in the Chinese Buddhist culture. In Xian are some of China’s oldest artifacts. It is near this city that the famous terracotta army was discovered by local farmers when they were digging a well. This impressive structure is now a museum that is open for visitors.
