      Guilin 14 hours ago

      I'd like to find an under 150 Yuan/nite hotel that is clean, quiet, with English tv. Agoda reviews show not many hotels meet this. Do you have any suggestions?

      Thank you.

    • Guilin 3 Full Days Tour plan

      Dazhai Apr 27, 2015 at 1:19 AM

      Hi I am visiting Guilin form 2nd - 5th May. My return flight is on 5th May morning.
      So I have total of only 3 days to see most of Guilin (2nd, 3rd and 4th May).

      I have made two hotel bookings. One at Dazhai Village (2-4 May) and another in Guilin (near Guilin Railway Station) 4th-5th May.

      Could you please kindly suggest a preferable itinerary for 3 days Guilin visit? How much does a cab cost to book for 3 days from airport pickup, 3 day tour and airport drop?

      Does below makes any sense
      Day1
      Arrive at Guilin
      Guilin City tour
      Drive/Train/Bus to Dazhai, Longsheng

      Day2
      Longsheng Rice Terraces
      Nearby attractions

      Day3
      Early check out
      Drive to Yangshuo
      Li River, other attractions
      Drive to Guilin

      Day4
      Drive/Bus/Train to Airport

      Please share your tips. Thanks in advance.

      Hey guys, i am planning on taking a trip to shanghai in july and was wondering if its possible to visit the mountain in a day and be back in shanghai? i found that a bus from shanghai station to Tangkou will take roughly 6 hours if i leave on the first one at 6am, spend a few hours on the mountain (4-5hrs) and then take a bus back to shanghai. is this a good idea or crazy? also, i dont know exactly which bus goes back to shanghai and from where (Tangko or tuxni) if anyone has experience/advice/suggestion or specific bus routes to take would help a lot!. thanks

      taxi to qiaotou for Tiger Leaping Gorge

      Yunnan Sheng Apr 6, 2015 at 6:50 AM

      Hi,
      What's a reasonable price for getting a taxi from Lijiang (Shuhe old.town specifically) to Qiaotou for the start of the tiger leaping gorge trail?

      I've been told numbers ranging from 50rmb per person to 500rmb in total.. So am a bit hewildered!

      Secondly I hear that many travellers choose to take the bus from lijiang bus station instead. Whilst we (3 of us) are willing to pay up to 200rmb for the cab, does anyone know the bus timetable in the early morning around 9-10am?

      Thanks so much.

    • is it better to stay in Hong Kong or Shenzhen?

      Shenzhen Apr 26, 2015 at 10:23 PM

      Hi We are coming to Hong Kong for 8 days, my question is is it worth it to break it up and spend a few nights in Shenzhen for the shopping or should we just commute? From what I remember on our last trip, (we only spent a day in Shenzhen) it was exhausting and we only went in one shopping building which had multiple floors. Is there any other shopping besides that one building and is it worth it to stay for a few days as opposed to just going for a day. Basically what I would like to know is there more than just that one building for shopping? I know the prices were much lower than in Hong Kong and since this is mainly a shopping trip I'm curious to know what others think if it's worth our while spending a few days there. Thanks.

      China Apr 10, 2015 at 8:03 AM

      Hey,

      My friend and I want to travel china in July - September (not quite sure in which month exactly).
      We are worried about the heat and the rain.
      Do you think it is possible to travel during this time of the year or would we be held by the weather?

      Is it recommended to stick to a particular part of China during these months?

      Thanks a lot!

      Airlines to China

      China Apr 6, 2015 at 7:50 PM

      Would like to fly to China in September either from Vancouver or San Francesco, and suggestions on best airline. Would be flying economy.. Will land in either Beijing or Shanghai, having made final plans yet.. Want to see both cities and as much as we can see in 5 weeks. I assume we would travel by either train or air while in China. Perhaps if someone could point me in the right direction regarding travel within the country would also be very helpful.

      If any fellow VT member has experience it shall be valuable in giving me guidance. I watched long, big and shining green area down Zhangye,Shunhua and Dunle villages(38.06 -38.16 N & 101.01-101.14 E Elev 9153 ft)). It is at the border of Gansu Sheng & Qinghai Sheng provinces. This seems like rice or Rape plantations, but could it be so large?. Could you please give me some information on this ; what is this place, how big is it, its name.

      The famous museum in Lanzhou - possibly the only reason for visiting - is closed for renovations, but until when? I heard November 2004 from one person and February 2005 from another. Any news? Why don't the authorities advertise that it is closed?
