Avoid Expensive Attractions in China

How to pick up AFFORDABLE china packages? If you want a cheap China tour package, you should avoid the following expensive attractions.

1. Yarlung Zangbo Grand Canyon

The Yarlung Zangbo River cleaves a straight niche from west to east before reaching the juncture of Mainling and Medog counties, where it swerves around towering Namjagbarwa (7,782 meters), the highest peak in the eastern section of the Himalayas, creating the largest, U-shaped canyon in the world. In 1994, some Chinese scientists made an expedition trip along the canyon. Data published by the State Bureau of Surveying and Mapping following the expedition shows that the canyon starts from the Daduka Village, Mainling County in the north to Parcoka Village, Medog in the south. Stretching 504.6 km, the canyon is 2,268 meters deep on average, with the deepest point being 6,009 meters. In September 1998, the State Council officially approved the name of the canyon as "Yarlung Zangbo Daxiagu" (Yarlung Zangbo Grand Canyon).

Admission: 240 yuan (US$38.2) (including 90 yuan for tourist bus fee)

2. Wudang Mountain

Located in Danjiangkou City, in the northwestern part of Hubei Province, Wudang Mountain, also known as Taihe Mountain, is both a famous scenic spot as well asa holy site in Taoism, China's indigenous religion.

Ever since the Tand Dynasty (618-907), the area is considered to be the birthplace of Taoism and therefore features a large number of well-preserved Taoist buildings. Besides, it has the well-known Golden Hall, which is the first batch of immovable cultural relics under state protection. Located on the top of the Tianzhu Peak, the main peak of Wudang Mountain, Hubei Province, the Golden Hall was built in the 14th year of Yongle reign (1416) of the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644). The view of Wudang Mountain is very different from that of Beijing tour.

Admission: 240 yuan (US$38.2) (including tourist bus fee)

20 yuan (US$3.2) (Zixiao Palace)

15 yuan (US$2.4) (Golden Hall)

3. Jinggang Mountain

Located in the Luoxiao Mountains, Jinggang Mountain is called the "cradle of the the Chinese Revolution" and has become a hot attraction for nature tours as well as patriotic education. Covering an area of 213.5 square kilometers, Jinggang Mountain accounts for 32.4 percent of Jinggangshan City. It features dozens of residences and revolutionary sites, 10 of which are under the protection of the State Council.
