Speaking of travel, many love the idea of independent travel simply because of their pursue of freedom. But let’s admit this, there are some destinations that are more suitable for group travel, especially for westerners. Frankly, China and Asia is one of those destinations. In fact, 85% of all leisure travelers going to China and Asia for the first time gravitate towards some types of guided tours to start with. There are many benefits of going guided:
Travel planning is not easy and could be extremely time consuming if you’ve only known little or nothing about the destinations. There could be certain times when you finally decided to cross some travel sites off your bucket list and later realized how hard it was to even get started. You need to do an extensive research on hotels, attractions, restaurants and decide on how to get there and also get around. There may be some travel guides and plans on the internet that seem to be plausible; however they may not be updated or fit in your situation.
On the other hand, We take over your task and do all the travel planning behind the scene. We know exactly that it’s not only about going to an iconic spot that will give you the best photo, but also an inspired experience of a different culture. Therefore, we carefully handcrafted every single itinerary and keep your preparation to-do-list down to the minimum. All you really have to do is taking a time off and set your mind to vacation mode.
No Language Barrier
Even though English has become more and more popular in Asia, it is still not commonly used by locals. Imagine arriving at a beautiful small town by the countryside through a long and exhausted ride, just to realize that you cannot even order yourself a cup of warm tea because no one else speaks English and you don’t speak in their local language either. The language barrier may be less obvious in big cities, if not less cumbersome. For example, menus in China are less common to carry English translations. Even though they do, it’s nothing like those you may see in the US. You could end up ordering something completely out of your mind without the help of a local interpreter.
With Mag Vacations, these will never happen. All of our staffs are bilingual in English and local languages. Whether you are trying to buy a street snack or bargain over a local handcraft, we can help you get the best deal. Traveling with someone who speaks in a local language also reassure that you will get the most out of your stay.
Traveling to a new destination is an adventure to most people. Catching public transportation could be a nightmare, especially in Beijing and Shanghai during the day. You may have experienced a fantastic moment of asscending the Great Wall, but is now stuck in a terrible traffic jam on your way back to the city. There may also be times when you have a sick stomach due to unfavorable local dish and don’t know where to see a doctor.

What is better than having someone wait at the site and show you around like it is his home and you are his exclusive guest? Information about a specific attraction or destination may be found on the internet but only local insiders could give you a full understanding of the places you are visiting.
