ONLY in Daying, Suining, Sichuan: Titanic Replica Attraction....Can anyone see this great project is being built? hAS IT STARTED TO BE BUILT YET!? Thanks a lot!
Has anyone been to this bridge? I was there a few years back and after going through the tunnel and over the bridge and out the other side, you reach a plateau you can stand/sit on and have a break. If you look out over the way in THAT direction (can't recall which way it was, just new it was directly opposite from the bridge) you can see a rock formation in the shape of either a Canadian Inukshuk or a Chinese Gate. Does anyone have any info on what this is or who built it or when? It was there in 2009, my first trip, and I think it's still there, according to some shots I've seen on the web.

We are looking for anyone who wants to join us to share the costs. If you are interested do not hesitate to contact me.
The cost is around 600 rmb for the day.

So, can you please suggest me that what would be best to visit and if 4 days is sufficient to visit? And, may be help me with an sample itinerary?
Thanks a lot!
P.S - one more question. Daguan Pavilion is same as Dongchuan Red Land? If not same then I want to include is too.
I am going to China for the first time next March. I plan to cover the usual spots like Beijing, Shanghai, Xi’An then see some more mote places like either Sichuan or the Guilin area.I like to travel by train as it is a relax way to see a country. What are trains like in China? Do they cover these areas ? How do I buy tickets before going there? I obviously speak no Chinese at all.
Hi Im Aizul from Malaysia and coming to Beijing this 30 December 2013, My flight arrival in Beijing Capital Airport around 1.30am on 31 December 2013... So how the best way to I take the transportation from the airport to the hotel?? Need your advise about that... Thanks :)
I am an American currently live in Kunming, China for four years now (for a total of 13 years in China). So, far it is the BEST city in the world for me to live in and I hope/expect to live here forever. However, if for some reason I can't stay here at some point (e.g. China won't issue me another visa), I want to have a backup city for me to move to. And I want to KNOW what my backup city is in advance.
I have several criteria for my backup city (to try to match Kunming or better):
1) Good weather year around (Kunming almost always gets up to 15 degrees (Celsius) each day in the winter and rarely goes above 30 degrees in the summer)
2) Great prices compared to USA (it would cost me six times more to live in the USA given my current level of living here in Kunming: I have a 2700 square foot luxury apartment for $500 USD per month; my personal assistant works for me for less than $3 per hour, etc.)
3) I would like to live in a city of 1,000,000 or more, although I might accept as low at 500,000.
4) The residents of this city should have a friendly attitude towards Americans.
These are my basic requirements. Do you know of any cities in your travels that might fit?
With much appreciation...
Dear VTers, I recently recommended Alvin of Beijing to be the tour guide of my best friend who will be traveling to Beijing with ther family some time December. Unfortunately, due to the terror attack in Tiananmen last October, Alvin was critically hurt and cannot assist my friend. I am asking my fellow VTers for 2 things:
1. For those who believe in prayers, pls pray for Alvin's speedy recovery. He broke ribs and pelvis. He cannot breathe well and is currently confined at Beijing Orthopedic Hospital. Will not post pictures here so as not to offend others who may find his hurt pictures a bit delicate to look at.
2. Need your recommendation for another reliable tour guide who can provide van+driver only. My friend does not need tour packages at this point, just a van+driver. Please help. Please send contact details, too.
Thanks in advance.
I am deciding between stopping over in datong or luoyang to see the caves on my way from beijing to xian.
Can anyone advise which is better to see ? What are the differences ? In terms of convenience from the train stations to get to the caves, which is easier as i am short of time on my itenary.
We are planning a trip to Datong from Beijing - can anyone advise if there is nice scenery on the way if we take train in day time? Would we be able to buy soft sleepers on a day train from Beijing to Datong ? We thought of spending 1 nite in Datong and then taking the CITS tour for 1 day to Yungang grottoes and hanging monastery. Then to return to Beijing subsequently same day in evening - would there be long distance buses departing Datong to Beijing or would it be better to take soft sleepers on nite train but there would be problem what to do for whole nite in Datong while awaiting for train which leaves about 2300 hrs or so for Beijing. Planning to go Datong on Wed 26 Sept and returning Beijing on 27 Sept - travelling with 2 elderly folk in 70s. Any advice much appreciated
I'm thinking of arriving in Datong early morning from Beijing and leaving later that night to Xi'an. I don't really intend sticking around town for more than a day and I only plan to see the cave and the hanging monastery. I just have some questions about the logistics:
(1) Can I book a cheap tour through CITS once I arrive in Datong? If so, how much?
(2) Are there any storage lockers in the train station?
(3) Are there any shower facilities at the train station?
(4) I will be arriving in Datong on May 7, which is during the Golden Week. Will it be hard for me to book a sleeper ticket from Datong to Xi'an on this date?
I have checked with a few online travel companies in Beijing, only able to get Beijing-Datong train tickets.
How can I arrange for someone or travel agent in Datong to help get Datong - Beijing overnight sleepers?
Intend to visit Datong's Yungang Buddhist Caves and Hanging Monastary only.
Has any VTers gone with CITS day tour to these 2 places? How to book?
I'm intending to travel from China to Western Russia on the Trans Siberian. I was wondering if it is possible to board the train at Datong, rather than in Beijing (I've been to Beijing before and it will add a long distance to my travel plans if I have to go back there). I'm not planning todothe journey in one go - the first leg would be as far as Ulaan Baatar. Hope you can help me out with this - I'd appreciate any information. Thanks - Mike
