      Chengdu 23 hours ago

      Hey people. I'm in Chengdu with my girlfriend at the moment, and we are looking for something fun to do, that ain't the typical "oh go see peoples park" or "look at something really chinese" - No we want to have fun. Bowl, swim, skate - whatever. Something funny for people who lives here as well. Do you have any suggestions to what we might be able to do ?

    • 5 weeks in china traveling with child!

      Shenzhen Aug 15, 2015 at 12:59 AM

      hey I am looking for advise..
      During next years summer holidays July 2016 I am hoping to travel to china so far my plans are to:
      fly from London to Beijing were I intend on spending 5 nights, then fly to Shenzhen were I will be spending 21 nights, then over to Hong Kong for 7 nights.
      I have already started looking into costs of flights accommodation and reserved and booked certain parts of this trip ..
      its more other expenses that I cant get a general idea of like the cost of food, transport and day to day living cost.
      I will be traveling with my 7 year old daughter obviously traveling with a child brings along more worries then going solo, any advise on attractions, things to just any general advice regarding this would be of great help.
      Also while in Shenzhen I am hoping to find some volunteer work just 2/3 days week within a school setting ideally summer schools, play group/English school ect.. This is just an idea, as I work in education day to day within a high school specialising in working with SEN within a main stream setting, and think this would be amazing opportunity for both me and my child. obviously I would need to find somewhere that wouldn't mind her being with me but as an idea I was wondering if this was possible?
      any help would be brilliant

      Hi!
      I was planning on spending 3 nights in Guilin before taking Li river cruise to Yangshuo and spending 3 nights there. 6 nights total in the area. But from what I've heard, Yangshuo is the place to be. Is there a lot More do in Yangshuo that Guilin? Should I spend just 1 night Guilin and 5 in Yangshuo?
      On another note, We want to do the rice terraces but my dad has bad knees and can't walk long distances or climb. I'd really like to stay there 1 night but with dads mobility issues I don't know if it's a good idea. Would it be better to just do a 1 full day tour to rice terraces? If so, should we take tour from Guilin or Yangshuo?

      I do not know how to ride a bike so I plan to walk around West Lake. I would be there in early January. I know the lake is large and has a lot of small paths that deviate from the general trail around the lake. How long would it take for a leisurely walk around the lake?

I'm thinking to take an early train from Shanghai and arrive in Hangzhou around 8 plus and to get to the west lake by 9am. Later in the afternoon, around 3pm, to catch a train back to Shanghai.

      Appreciate any suggestions or advice. Thanks!

      Bus Travel in China--Hangzhou to Huangshan (September)

      by SandiM Online Now May 16, 2011 at 6:07 PM

      How does bus travel 'work' in China between Hangzhou and Huangshan (Tangkou)? If we buy a roundtrip ticket to Tangkou from Hangzhou (is there enough time to buy it the night before or even day of?), do we get some kind of guarantee that we will definitely get on that bus going to and coming from? I don't want to get down to the bottom of Huangshan after our 2 day exploration only to find the bus is sold out to get back to Hangzhou (anybody got the schedule for Tangkou-Hangzhou as well as Tangkou-Tunxi-Hangzhou? I heard this route might be faster than the direct from Tangkou but it depends on when these buses leave Tangkou. We might opt for sitting for 5 hours over going 1 hr, waiting 2 hrs, then sitting for another 4hrs etc). Please and thanks!

      West Lake Huangzhou & photography

      by SandiM Online Now Feb 7, 2011 at 7:29 PM

      We are arriving at SHA airport around 230pm from Canada and hope to grab one of those express buses outside the airport to go directly to Hangzhou Tourist hub on Huanglong Rd. Got the schedules already, so that's done. Trying to select a hotel around West Lake in Hangzhou but need to know this: which section of the lake is the most photogenic? West Lake is huge and we want to be up early in the morning to shoot some photos of the lake & pagodas and statuary (if any). So, which approach is best? that way i can select a hotel nearby to start from (oh and we also need to get to the West bus Station on Zijingang Rd around lunch to grab an express bus to Huangshan Mtn so that gives you an idea where we want to be around. The hotel choice is not as important as the west lake approach part). thanks!
