With travel season in full swing, it's time to get out your passport and get back into exploring what the world has to offer.

Just like people with Indian and Filipino passports in Canada, those with Chinese passports are also able to travel to some places around the globe that won't require a visa when they land.

So, whether you're an international student or just visiting Canada on a short-term basis, there are options for those with a passport from China to enjoy visa-free travel to tropical jungles and blue waters in many countries and islands around the world.

Behold Chinese passport holders, pack your bags and get ready for some picturesque landscapes — here are nine places, according to Passport Index, you could visit visa-free.
