Since October 13, 1970, China and Canada have decided upon mutual recognition and established diplomatic relations. Canada has become one of the most popular countries for Chinese immigrants over the past 10 years. There are more and more direct flights between the two countries. 20% of China Educational Tours’ customers are from Canada, and thus, China is quite a welcome destination for Canadian tourists.
Here are the flight times for some of the direct flights from several Canadian cities to various destinations in China.
|Departure City||Arrival City||Flying time|
|Hong Kong||11hrs 50mins|
* The information above is for reference only. The actual flight time is based on the specific flight schedule on the travel date.
TIP: How to get a good deal on international flights?
Canadian citizens nearly always need a pre-arranged visa to visit China's mainland (HK and Macau offer visa-on-arrival). An L type visa is requested for those who intend to go to China as a tourist. The duration of each stay is 30 days. You can check out this page to apply online China Visa Application Service Center or this page for more information: http://www.chinese-embassy.org.uk/eng/visa/
The People’s Republic of China currently maintains one Embassy in Ottawa, but also maintains 4 consulates-general in the following Canada cities: Vancouver, BC; Calgary, AB; Toronto, ON; Montreal, QC.

I want to thank you again for planning, organizing and executing our trip.
The guides were such a huge help. Their suggestions on how to fill our free time, fulfilling our needs even when they were a bit extreme (like our diet needs), they hit exactly on our trip preferences, they helped us even with the small things like borrowing umbrellas from the hotel and all this with a smile. Their knowledge exceeded the topics of our trip that they were able to answer our questions that arose from our curiosity.
Our most memorable free time was walking through the Muslim quarter to the south gate via the bell and drum towers in Xian at night. This was recommended by our lovely guide Marvin (she did advise us to take the subway, but we preferred walking).
The most memorable attractions on our itinerary and the ones that made us say a big WOW were Zhangjiajie national park and Longsheng rice terraces. Both sceneries were breathtakingly beautiful.
My family and I would recommend and already are recommending your company to friends and family and already posted a recommendation on Tripadvisor.
You are welcome to use this letter and publish it along with my name and nationality.
Have a great week. Thank again.
The posted review on Trip Advisor:
We had an awesome trip to China in June 2019. I am so glad we decided to work with Lee from China Educational Tours. I just told him where we want to go, what we want to see and do. And he made it happen. We went to Beijing, Yangtze River Cruise, Guilin, and Yangshuo. We were treated like VIPs throughout the trip. Our tour guide was waiting for us at the airport, hotel, train station…and escorted everywhere. Our driver is always close by picking us up from one place to the next. The hotels, the cruise cabin and food were amazing. The local tour guides were friendly and knowledgeable. Private tour in China is the way to go!!!!
