With the Chinese government lifting their embargo on issuing UK tourist visas, with a full resumption of the visa service now in play, Wendy Wu Tours have confirmed the first UK escorted group tour to China on 21st May 2023, following a three year hiatus.
Following close consultation and working hand in hand with the Chinese government and China National Tourism Association, in preparation for the full tourist reopening, Wendy Wu Tours have been given the green light by the Chinese government to take this first official group tour to China – the 16-day ‘Wonders of China’.
Speaking on what will be a historic moment in tourism relations between the UK and China, Wendy Wu, founder of Wendy Wu Tours said: “We’ve been given the green light by the Chinese government to resume our China visa service which, we’re very thankful to say, fast tracks our entry back into China, enabling us to be the first UK tour operator back into China in less than two months’ time.
“Customers have been calling out for a tour date and eagerly awaiting an opportunity to travel to China, as soon as possible and will be the first to visit China, as part of an organised tour group, and to experience the magic of the ‘new’ China at its best. Having just reopened for tourism, now is the perfect time to travel and experience this spectacular country.
“The tour is fully inclusive plus we will take care of everything, which of course includes visas. It will be a monumental and historic tour and the opportunity of a lifetime to be among the first UK tourists back in China, after nearly three years.”
To meet demand, Wendy Wu Tours have also added additional capacity for tours throughout autumn 2023 and throughout 2024.
To celebrate China’s reopening, the ‘Wonders of China’ tour – priced from £3,540 per person – includes a ‘Partner Flies Free’ discount, when booked before 24th April 2023. In addition, Wendy Wu Tours are offering the ‘Partner Flies Free’ discount on selected group tours and a range of new private China tours, across the full China touring programme, departing throughout 2023 and 2024, when booked by 24th April 2023.
