Culture Background

Bicycles and buses are the most common means of transportation for Chinese to commute locally. Taxis also provide a convenient ways of getting around most of Chinese cities. Taxis are generally reasonably priced, though the fares of buses are usually very low by comparison. Foreign tourists seldom ride buses in China, though a trip can be a real adventure. It’s often very crowded, especially during rush hours in big Chinese cities. It’s a good idea to get someone to write down your destination in Chinese characters before you take buses or taxi. Some big cities have subways available. Train and airplanes are available for longer distance travel if you wish to visit different Chinese cities during your stay in China. Long-distance Chinese trains generally provide two classes: hard seats and soft seats. “soft seat class” are generally more comfortable and less crowded. Boat tour could be a pleasant, relaxing way to see some areas of local scenery in China. One of the famous route of boat tours in China are along the Changjiang (Yangtse River).
