By Viator, March 2018

4 200 Reviews | Add your review

While it’s easy to fill a day or a week in Hong Kong, the former British colony and current special administrative region of China also makes a great base for exploring the wonders of  mainland China. Here are some great options for doing so.

Full-Day Tours
China’s a huge country with a ton to see, but if you’re pressed for time, it’s possible to get a taste of the mainland on a day trip from Hong Kong. Spend a day shopping and sightseeing in Shenzen, one of China’s most modern cities, or opt for a day exploring its third largest city, Guangzhou (formerly known as Canton).

Multi-Day Tours
Travelers with more time on their hands can use Hong Kong as a base for a more extensive multi-day trip through the mainland. Spend some time in Macau (the Las Vegas of Asia), float along the Li River, or explore the karst-covered landscape of Yangshuo. Other options include strolling along the Longji Rice Terraces or visiting the spectacular rock formations along the Guilin riverfront.

Things to Know
  • Day tours from Hong Kong to the mainland can last upwards of 14 hours.
  • Choose between a day trip to Shenzhen or Guangzhou or a multi-day journey through Southern China.
  • Many mainland China tours include hotel pickup and drop-off in Hong Kong.
  • Remember that Chinese visa requirements differ between Hong Kong and the mainland.
