It is important to keep up to date with local health and safety advisories, and to be aware of any risks, particularly with respect to climate and terrain. Touring in such diverse climates and landscapes can be challenging, and requires careful preparation and research prior to departure. It is also important to have comprehensive travel and medical insurance that covers all eventualities, including the remote and extreme situations encountered on a tour of China and Australia.

Beijing and Canberra are the respective capital cities of China and Australia, and offer a unique insight into the cultures and how each country functions. From the ancient Chinese palaces and monuments to the modern tech startups of Australia’s capital, touring between these two cities and their surrounding environs can provide an amazing contrast and help to give insight into each nation’s distinct identities. This mixture of modernity and history makes for a fascinating tour, and by using the excellent transportation services available, getting around each city and the further environs is simple.

However, with careful planning and a determination to find a balance between cost and quality, even the most cash-strapped of tourists can find something suitable to their budget. Researching companies for value for money, and researching the places to visit will help significantly decrease the overall cost of the tour, and help financial constraints become more manageable.

What’s really interesting about touring between these two countries is the fusion of their cultures. People are curious, and many of the same experiences – from shopping to sightseeing – can be different depending on where in China or Australia they are undertaken. People in these countries appear at first to be very different, yet frequently share similar values and beliefs. This makes the exchange between the two cultures incredibly interesting, further enlightened by post-tour reflections on the differences.
