Advantages and Disadvantages of Beijing with Mission

1, the first benefit ~ ~
① save the price advantage with the obvious, traffic, hotels, attractions tickets, travel agencies can get a lot of discounts;
② save time and save with the tour do not have their own attractions, find cars, to eat, to find the hotel, do route planning, there are familiar with the Beijing local ground operators reception, a guided tour to go on it, suffering neither running around, nor queuing for tickets the difficulty;
③ tours with the group mature Travel is generally the local travel agency design lines, the local tourism resources do not have to say that coupled with the experience accumulated over the years, the design of the trip more scientific and reasonable, the choice of attractions is also representative or the essence of the part, Will be appropriate to increase the number of individual attractions, basically to meet the needs of most tourists;
④ safety index travel agencies on the local tourism resources are very understanding of all aspects of the possible unsafe factors have done a professional inspection, step on the line The Reduce the number of tourists due to their own but not familiar with the local situation caused by the trouble and mistakes, which virtually reduced a lot of insecurity.

2, the opposite side of the favorable side, with the tour also indifferent to some unsatisfactory side
① degree of freedom is not enough time with the tour tour, you need to follow the design of a good line to go, each site has a general tour time limit, there are May be in the fun when you have not fun, the tour guide to urge you to go to the next attractions, so inevitably have the feeling of walking;
② waiting for a long time in Beijing, although many attractions, but more people to travel, so to the scenic inevitable Will see the sea of ​​people of the scene, coupled with the group tour is a collective travel, and the number of tourists within each tour is not fixed, more or less when the collection will be late and so on the phenomenon, which of course will indirectly affect everyone in Scenic tour time slightly

Advantages and Disadvantages of Beijing Free Exercise

① convenient transportation Beijing is a free exercise for the city, Beijing from all over the country's air tickets, high-speed rail, the train is more intensive, basically can be booked in advance, Beijing's local traffic is more convenient, basically every subway can go to the subway , In addition to the Great Wall (choose a Great Wall day trip can be resolved)
② high degree of freedom how to go on how to go, how long to play how long to play! (Freedom is not too high Oh) do not wait for the team's collection time, not to be guided by various reminders If you choose a more relaxed roaming mode, you can sleep every day naturally wake up na!

Free line of the drawbacks we must also understand some, here I still summed up a few points for your reference Oh!
① relatively high cost Beijing as a capital, the level of consumption is naturally high, travel accommodation, meals, attractions tickets are relatively expensive, FIT offer and the team offer is equivalent to the retail price and wholesale price, it is certainly not the same, You know how to
operate more difficult is not everyone can engage in their own free exercise, outsiders come to Beijing first put aside the unfamiliar life, just set the traffic route is a big problem, Beijing traffic is developed, but more The more easy to make people confused ah, especially for the direction of the children's shoes is really bad that really is a problem ah
③ relatively long time because of the high degree of freedom, the variable in the trip on the big, with the tour the same trip, if you choose the free exercise, it is certainly longer than with the tour to travel a lot longer.

Second, to Beijing to play, will hit the card attractions!
