Many families dream of going to China for a family vacation, but the travel packages usually will exceed $15,000 for a family four. However, that is not true any longer with the improvements made by online Internet travel websites.

The 2008 Summer Olympics Games will hold the Opening Ceremony on August 8th. Many have dreamed of attending for years. And with the Games being held in China, it also provides an opportunity to visit historic places such as Tiananmen Square, the Forbidden City, the Temple of Heaven and of course the Great Wall of China. But there's a price tag associated with fulfilling this dream.

Airline tickets per person will range between $1,700 and $2,000. Hotel cost will be in the range of a few hundred dollars per night. And then you have the cost of the tours and Olympic tickets. But the Internet has come to the rescue. By searching online travel websites and using the many tools available, you can find a travel package that allows a family of four to attend for less than $10,000. And this is all-inclusive of flights, hotel, tours and Olympic tickets.

Flight and Hotel searches should be combined. One of the easiest ways to lower your travel cost is by combining your search with flight and hotel. This combo provides a price that many times beat the cost of an airline ticket alone.

There are many all inclusive packages to be found as well. Many online travel sites have specials that will include a package with flight, hotel, and tickets or flight, hotel and tours. You may even get lucky and find a package that will include flight, hotel, tours and Olympic tickets. Again, these all inclusive travel packages will beat the vacation that reserves each of these components individually.

Spring Tours is the largest tour operator in China and even has its own airline. Spring has formed a partnership with a very popular online travel website that has incorporated everything you will dream of doing on a China vacation. In addition to specials create specifically for the 2008 Summer Olympic Games; this partnership has expanded to include vacation and tour packages for Europe and other popular worldwide travel destinations.

With some elbow grease and some time spent on the Internet, the dream vacation for a family is now a reality to the Summer Olympic Games in China and to many travel destinations around the world.
