If your time is tight planned, would suggest you get an English speaking interpreter or guide to travel with you.

Over all , between 3-4star hotels, the room size is rather small.

ҧ  Food in China. China is a large country with dynamic culture. Food style differs from one area to another. Normally people in northern , northwestern and central China prefer more flour-made products, salty flavor, light taste, coast regional places , people enjoy more rice, sea food, light flavor, while people in south and southwestern China eat more rice, spicy hot and sour flavor. For people from SAARC countries, would suggest you open heart to try all kinds of flavor, certainly not the non-veg.you donҧt take. Food can only be provided at the request, otherwise local guide shall recommend you where you may go and arrange on your own.
