Who we are:
Activechina is a company of experienced guides and travelers dedicated to serving you.
Established in 2001 and still growing,
ActiveChina offers treks, cycling tours, family trips, and many
distinctive, ecologically sensitive journeys throughout China. We are constantly innovating, searching out new adventures, and finding ways to improve established trips.
We are based in Kunming City, Yunnan Province in southwest China.
Yunnan borders Vietnam, Laos and Burma. It is regarded as the most culturally
and geographically diverse province, with a multitude of fascinating minority groups.
We care about you and your holiday. We strive to make your trip in
China worth every penny you pay. We are old hands of China being
in travel business for over 12 years. Our trips are reasonably
priced, they are comfortable and affordable. We trips are
interesting, small sized, well planned and responsible. There's no
hidden cost in the price, you will expect hassle free holidays. We
take you to sample local fine cuisine but not tourist restaurants'
factory food. We put unique nature and culture experience in your
itinerary but not shopping tours. We are 100% locals and we
support local schools and students through Yunnan America
Foundation and sometimes our money goes directly to trail maintenance
and bridge building in the villages. It means your money stays
here if you travel with us.
It was the summer of 1998 when founder of ActiveChina Jia Xu
guided his first trip on a photographing tour to northwestern
Yunnan. He was fascinated by the splendor of nature the unique
minority cultures of the region. He then did an overland expedition from Kunming
to Lhasa and pioneered a trek to the Konkalin Peaks which is now
Yading Nature Reserve. In the following years Jia trekked, cycled
and photographed with his clients, partners and international tour
leaders in many remote places of China. Many of them became
friends with him and kept returning to China to visit this
wonderful country. Jia's life and career were build upon providing
adventure travels to active travelers from all over the world
looking to get off the beaten path in China. Jia was inspired to
start his own travel business dedicated to offering high quality,
hassle free, responsible and active travels to China's most remote
and unique destinations. His passion and understanding of
adventure travel became the slogan of the company: ActiveChina
"for the active travelers"
