We traveled as a family to Beijing and Xi'an. Pre-trip planning was done via our travel agent, with excellent communication with the WildChina folks via email. Questions were answered promptly, and all the information we got was absolutely correct. A snowstorm forced changes to 3 days of our plans - but our guide Michael handled all of it effortlessly.

The attention to detail by WildChina made this trip our best ever! They made it so stress-free. Nice balance of physical exertion, mental stimulation, good food and lovely hotels for resting and re-energizing. Best of all were the guides. Our Beijing guide, Michael Xu, was funny, informative, helpful and caring. My balance has deteriorated with age and with Michael's constant...

We connected with WildChina and one of their directors, a Ms. Zhao, who assisted us in arranging guides, experiences and internal travel in Beijing and in several stops in Western China near the border with Myanmar. Our tip focused on history and the relationship between the Chinese and Americans in pre-WWII and immediately thereafter. We visited (with the help of...

Stride Review

WildChina is a travel company based in Beijing and founded in 2000. They offer luxury, ecologically sensitive journeys throughout China. Highlights include rich interactions with locals, exclusive access to certain venues, and expert guides.

What Makes Them Stand Out?

They offer small group tours, private tours, education tours for classrooms, and corporate trips. Tours are led by experts in all aspects of China, and provide exciting, different itineraries. You’ll know you’re not getting a canned experience, but rather a unique glimpse into China’s people and history. 

Who Travels With Them?

WildChina is great for those interested in learning more about China and getting a deeper glimpse into the way of life there. Tours are available to all age ranges and a variety of budgets.

Where Do They Operate?

They focus in China, but also offer their unique touring style in other places as well, including Bhutan, Myanmar, and Laos.

Why Travel With Them?

For a deep cultural experience, WildChina is a great choice. The company organizes classic journeys (such as trips to the Great Wall), Chinese cultural immersion programs, and adventures that involve hiking and camping throughout China's beautiful landscapes. It’s a great way to see China through local eyes and gain a deeper understanding of their culture and history.

From WildChina

WildChina is a premium, sustainable travel company based in Beijing. Started in 2000 by Mei Zhang, a native of Yunnan Province and a Harvard MBA, WildChina offers distinctive, ecologically sensitive journeys to all corners of China. WildChina creates bespoke trips highlighted by rich personal interactions and superior access to experts and venues. We cater to an exclusive and sophisticated clientele interested in exploring the real China off the beaten path.

At WildChina, adventure and luxury are synonymous, meaning that we bring comfort to a truly distinctive experience. We plan every trip with the knowledge that our guests expect the highest quality of service and pride ourselves on our meticulous attention to detail.

Whether interested in seeing an untouched landscape or exploring an iconic site in a unique way, WildChina’s journeys will undoubtedly allow you to Experience China Differently!

WildChina was born on the sacred slopes of Mount Kailash in the Himalayas. Founder Mei Zhang, Yunnan native and Harvard MBA, had just completed the arduous kora pilgrimage, a ritual circuit around the base of the Tibetan mountain undertaken by Buddhists and Hindus for millennia.

To put it mildly, her grueling 56km hike was no walk in the park, even for a Mandarin speaker and relative local. On top of having no guide, lodgings or transport, and having to cope with being 4,500 meters above sea level, Mei was forced to fend off wild dogs along the way. Frightened and frustrated with the obstacles that tarnished an otherwise magical and spiritual journey, Mei had a revelation. She would pioneer a travel service to enable visitors to savor China’s stunning, often difficult to reach gems in a comfortable, stylish and stress-free way.

Since WildChina’s first ever trip in the year 2000, we have helped thousands of travelers have life-changing experiences in every corner of this vast and endlessly inspiring nation.

We will never crop out reality or cocoon our customers in a tourist bubble because we believe genuine and profound travel experiences disarm you when you least expect them, whether it’s that first sip of early harvest green tea under a spring sun, or the hushed flicker of yak butter candles in a Tibetan monastery

We believe in the power of travel to transform, to inspire and to bring people closer together, and we work tirelessly to perfect every detail for our customers. It’s this dedication, expertise and passion for travel in China that makes us an award-winning industry leader.


WildChina works with you to curate tailor-made vacations that delight the senses and confound expectations. Browse our sample trips and let us know what speaks to you. Don’t be afraid to dream big – our years of on-the-ground experience enable us to go the extra mile to craft authentic, compelling experiences that never compromise on comfort.


Find adventure with other like-minded wanderers who share your desire to get at the heart of China and have authentic, life-changing experiences along the way. Whether you’re a first-timer or in search of something new, our Small Group Trips, capped at 12 people each, have got you covered.

WildChina Education

We believe that travel and learning always go hand in hand, which is why our China education adventures offer a tried-and-tested balance of adventure, discovery, community focus and self-empowerment.
