    I travelled there for 6 weeks with my husband, 2 girls aged 1&3 and I was 5 months pregnant. There are lots of helpful people, especially at the nice hotels who are more than happy to give advice and help out. Also travel agencies there. We had/have absolutely no Chinese except 'hello and thank you and did great! over 6 years ago

    I have lived in China for 9 years and think that I would do a mixture of both depending on where you were wanting to go. In the cities there is definitely no need for a tour but going to more out-of-the-way places , I would hook up with an organization. Hotels can often help you out with organizations and/or drivers in their area. over 6 years ago

    It's possible but with lots of time on hand and frustrations especially if you travel to rural areas. Remember, almost all signs are in Chinese. over 6 years ago

    As china travel serive,my suggestion is don't attempt

    1)if you travel hongkong,it's avialble,because english can commuicate.and transportion is easy,like singapore or malaysia tour,no necessary to find travel service

    2)in china,most of people don't speak english.only few good at english,
    if you self travel,lot of barrier is waiting for you.transportaion,hotel,eating....
    which will make you helpless and embarrassed

    3)Even you good at chinese language,and finish the self-help trip
    finally you will feel tired and the cost is more expensive than join traver service

    4)wise deicission is to find reliable travel service with reasonable quotaion and excellent service. www.westchinago.com for your reference. over 6 years ago
