Protect Your Bubble provides a tip sheet for Chinese New Year tourists

The Chinese New Year is fast approaching and the country boasts some very attractive tourist destinations.  Protect Your Bubble, travel protection brand, has some tips for those who want to celebrate Chinese New Year in China.


  • Break the language barrier – It’s important to learn a few rudimentary words and phrases before leaving large cities and major tourist areas.  If this is not an option, it’s advised to travel with a translator. Chinese language business cards are a good idea for passers-by, taxis, buses and so on.


  • Focus your itinerary – China is big.  Really, it is enormous with mountains, deserts, jungles, grasslands and some of the world’s biggest cities.  There is simply too much to cover in a single trip.  Concentrate on a single province or region and explore it completely.  For example, here are three solid choices:
    • Sichuan – One province in three regions, the center and south have bamboo forests and Ming-Dynasty villages.  North has lakes with alpine-like scenery and to the west, plateaus and grasslands await.
    • Guangxi – Rice terraces and peaks dominate a jungle for hiking, cycling and river trips for the serious outdoors-loving person.
    • Beijing – The capital is a province to itself, so fly in and stay.  The Great Wall, Tiananmen Square, Forbidden City, Summer Palace and other attractions just keep going.


  • Check the weather – Weather in a place that has as much diversity as China will be difficult to predict.  Expect almost anything from hot and humid to cold and windy.  Spring and Fall are the most comfortable to travel, but the seasons can be incredibly short – only a few weeks at the most.  Pack and plan layers.


  • Use public transport – China is a country on the move, and by move it is buses, bikes and trains.  Taxis and planes are okay, but the extensive public transport is friendly for bikes, especially in Beijing.  Most locals are genuinely friendly and helpful even to lost tourists.


  • Eat! –Chinese food is tasty and delicious.  Cuisine varies by region, so try as much as possible.  The street food is a must-try! Practice using chopsticks in advance.
