    • 9 days - Lijiang, Dali and Shangrila

      Lijiang Apr 12, 2014 at 12:37 AM

      I am planning a 9 days trip to China where I will be flying into Lijiang and hoping to cover Lijiang, Dali and Shangrila. I would like to do some trekking and explore around to understand the local way of life.

      Some help in my planning is greatly appreciated:
      1. How many days should I spend in each of the places?
      2. How do I go from one place to another? Do I have to book in advance or will i be able to just do it via the guesthouse?
      3. How long is the travel from place to place? I am particularly concerned about the treks where I might require a stayover? Which are the ones I should look out for so I can factor that in my planning.

      THANK YOU very much!

      How can I reach Zigong from Suzhou?

      Zigong Mar 21, 2014 at 7:25 AM

      I am travelling to Suzhou next week. I will be staying in Shilla Hotel Jinji Lake. And I want to visit Zigong Dinosaur museum during Sunday. How can I reach Zigong Dinosaur Museum from Suzhou? I couldn't find a direct train from Suzhou to Zigong. How can I reach Zigong through train or internal flight? I know the road is very long between Suzhou & Zigong, that's why I excluded automobile or bus transportation.

    • Hiking from jinshanlin to Simitai without a guide?

      China Apr 14, 2014 at 11:01 AM

      Hello,

      I'm visiting Beijing this summer, and I really want to hike on the great wall from Jinshanlin to Simitai.Unfortunately, the organized trips are quite expensive.
      So my question to you is whether it is possible to hike this part of the great wall on your own. Or are there chances I might get lost or might not be able to fix transport?

      Many thanks in advance :-)

    • 3 weeks in China, Beijing and countryside

      China Mar 18, 2014 at 6:20 AM

      Hi,
      Me and a friend plan to spend 2-3 weeks in China around late/mid november this year. We plan to land in Beijing and spend 4-6 days there and then head out and experience the countryside and other things worth seeing. We're also thinking about going to Hangzhou for a couple of days.

      What we're wondering is where would you recommend going after Beijing if you want to experience as much of Chinese cultures as possible in our weeks? As we're thinking about going to Hangzhou sometime during our trip it would be beneficial if it's somewhere around Beijing or hangzhou. It might be worth mentioning that we're trying to avoid the cold as far as possible.

      All advice appreciated!

      Buying fast G train ticket right before departure (Beijing South to Shanghai)?

      Beijing Apr 3, 2014 at 5:59 AM

      I will land in BJ early afternoon (from USA), but I do not want to pre-purchase a ticket (in case of miss it due to traffic etc.). Can I buy a ticket at the Beijing South train station for the immediate next departure train to Shanghai (I am an American)?

      Or do I really have to pre-purchase online? Any suggestion on which website to buy (ctrip.com???). If I miss the train I have the ticket for, would it be too much trouble having to have the ticket (for the missed train) refund first, then but another one?

      I am leaving tomorrow, any quick advice would be highly appreciated! Thanks!

    • 3 weeks in Hong-Kong, Guangzhou and Guilin

      China Mar 29, 2014 at 11:12 AM

      Hello dear travellers!

      Me and my friend are planing to go to the southern parts of China in mid November and stay there for three weeks. We want to spend approximately 1,5 weeks in the bigger cities such as Hong-Kong, Macau and Guangzhou and spend approximately 1,5 weeks on a trip in the countryside surrounding Guilin with the final destination of Guilin.

      First of all we are wondering if this seems doable given our period of time.
      Secondly we would like to get feedback about these destinations and if there is anything special (sights, cities etc) in the vicinity that you'd recommend we see (or if there is any cities nearby that might be of more interest?)

      Best regards

      Has anyone been to Jingzhou? We're going there for one of the stops on our May holiday trip and are looking for some tips/recommendations. Or, personal experiences/opinions also welcome!

      1) How do you move on to Wudangshan, from Jingzhou? I guess it doesn't make sense to go back to Yichang to try and catch a train. Are there direct buses from Jingzhou? If not, where should we change... probably at Xiangfan?

      2) How long would you allow for sightseeing in Jingzhou? We were planning on perhaps 3 hours, but wondering if it's too long or too short.

      I've heard one cannot book railway tickets in China earlier than 5 days from the trip date. I have also heard there may be difficulties (ticket availability-wise) with catching a train on a midway station

      sorry if I sound a bit too fidgety. Do you have any idea if trains in this part of China are packed at this time of year?

      Hye Everybody

      My name is Julien, I am from France and I will be in Wuhan at the beginning of April (5th) for working.
      Can you give me some advices for finding a flat (3-5000 RMB it is alright) or a share flat (I have several experiences in France, Scotland and Beijing).

      Waiting for your reply

      Thank you very much and see you soon!!:)

      I might be going to China over the summer for grad school and I was wondering what the prizes of things are. What can I buy for a dollar? For five dollars? etc. What are some nice things that I can buy for myself and the people at home?
