CHINA BIKE HOLIDAYS

RECOMMENDED PLACES TO CYCLE IN CHINA

  • Yunnan Province
  • Central China
  • East of China (Hui and Hang Areas)
  • Yunnan (云南) , meaning 'the south of colorful clouds' in Chinese, is absolutely one of the best places for experienced cyclists as your first bike ride in China. Strategically located in the southeastern end of Himalaya Mountains, Yunnan has so much to offer. Sunny & mild weather, well paved roads, stunning sceneries and diverse ethnic cultures can all be good reasons to come here. With Tibetan, Naxi, Yi, Bai and other nationalities, Yunnan is a multi-ethnic province, which has most varieties of minority groups in China (25 minorities in total). Right here the traditional lifestyles and culture are still well preserved in their daily lives. Therefore, our bike trip is not simply cycling all the way, you will have loads of chances to see and experience the lifestyles of locals. We are very sure that this will be an eye-opening and self-developing journey for each participant of the trip.

  • Central China (中原): The Central China is indisputably one major birthplace of Chinese civilization, which is centralized in Henan Province with neighboring areas. The trip will start from one ancient capital – Xian to another – Luoyang. Home to the capitals of 13 dynasties, both have great significance in history of China. During the heyday of feudal China, Xian and Luoyang were regarded as the starting points of the Silk Road. If you plan to have an in-depth knowledge of Chinese history and culture, this is a truly enlightening journey for you. What is more, you will have a chance to explore the 2 mountains: Mt. Hua (West) and Mt. Song (Center) of the Five Great Mountains in China, as well as the traditional cave dwellings of locals in this region.
