      Walking in the dark and distance to Baiyun Hotel

      Huangshan Jul 1, 2015 at 6:21 PM

      I only have one night and two half-days on the mountain so I'm trying to fit as much as I can without over exhausting myself. I decided that staying at Baiyun would be the best midpoint for this trip but I was wondering if it would be safe for a 31 year old average-moderately athletic man to walk these routes in the dark in July.

      I want to see Cloud Dispelling Pavilion during sunset but how long would it take to return to Baiyun and would it be safe to walk this route in the dark?

      And in the morning, I wanted to wake up at 4am and walk to Fairy Walking Bridge for sunrise. How long is the walk and would this be do-able or would is it too dangerous in the early morning?

      Hi,

      I plan to travel to Qiandeng from Shanghai for the day. I am wondering how to take the bus there from Shanghai. I also want to go to Zhouzhuang from Shanghai and stay the night at Zhouzhuang and then go to Fengjing from Zhouzhuang and then return to Shanghai from Fengjing. I am wondering if there is a bus from Shanghai to Zhouzhuang and than a bus from Zhouzhuang to Fengjing and from Fengjing to Shanghai.

      Thank you

    • Issuing Tibet traveling permits in Kathmandu

      Tibet 11 hours ago

      Hi, Does any one know how long will it take to issue all the required permits for Tibet trekking through an Kathmandu agency? I plan to find a traveling agency to do the arrangements once I get to Kathmandu (September 2015) and was wandering how long will it take. If I understood correctly, the Tibet entry permit takes about 3 days to issue (with some extra costs), but the trek i want to do also requires an Alien’s Travel Permit, which i'm not sure can be issued so fast...

      Thanks! Miriam

    • Harbin - China medical services

      Harbin Jun 8, 2015 at 1:32 PM

      Anyone knows if it is there any medical clinic, hospital or even doctor, for foreings?

      I would travel there and stay for work over 2 years, and i have a ilness that is not curable but treatable, so i need to be able to do that (treat it). For example, go to a doctor, ask for certain analisys, ask for the medicine (recipe) every 3 or 2 months. Then the treatment follow up and diagnosis would be done by mail by my actual doctor.

      The thing is i've read a lot of expiriences, and none of them is very good, if it is in normal chinese hospitals. So i wanted to know if i can find in harbin something like a specific foreing place or doctor.

      I don't need to say that i dont know chineese for the moment.

      Thank you

      Getting to and from Simatai

      Beijing Jul 1, 2015 at 7:02 PM

      I read about the 980 Express Bus from Dongzhimen to Miyun bus station and then the Miyun mini buses to Simatai so I planned my whole trip around that. Upon more research, I found that many people never found the mini buses and were pressured to pay for a 200-400 RMB taxi ride to Simatai and then another to get back.

      Has anyone actually taken the mini bus and how long does it take? I plan on taking the 980 bus from Beijing around 0700 on a Friday, around what time can I expect to arrive in Simatai? Or will I be forced to pay 200+ RMB to get from Miyun to Simatai and will I have trouble getting back to Beijing the next day?

    • 3 week China itinerary

      China Jun 18, 2015 at 6:50 AM

      Hi all,

      We are planning a 3 week holiday in China with my girlfriend, between 21st of July and 11th of August. It will be our first trip, however, I will get a slight feel of China when I will be working 2 weeks, just before our holiday, nearby Shanghai, in Jiang Yin. Below our first idea of what we could see/do. Any suggestions, corrections and advice would be much appreciated.

      Itinerary 3 weeks:

      Day 1: arrival Shanghai, take night train to Beijing

      Beijing

      Day 2: Arrival/Hostel, Tiananmen Square, Jingshan Park, Red theater Kung Fu Show

      Day 3: Mutianyu Great Wall, Ming Tomb, Birds Nest, Water Cube

      Day 4: Summer Palace, Hutong, Peking Duck dinner

      Day 5: Lama temple, Beihai Park, Temple of Heaven, night train to Pingyao

      Pingyao

      Day 6: Rishengchang Bank, Wang Family residence, Shuanglin temple, City wall, night train to Xi’an

      Xi’an

      Day 7: Arrival/Hostel, City wall, Bell tower, Big goose pagoda, Tang Dynasty show

      Day 8: Terra Cotta Army, Huaging hot spring, late night plane to Chengdu

      Chengdu

      Day 8 late night: Arrival/Hostel

      Day 9: Pandas, Green Ram temple, Remnin Park, Hot Pot dinner

      Day 10: Le Shan Buddha, Mt. Emei base (sleep there)

      Day 11: Mt. Emei summit, sleep in Chengdu

      Day 12: Early morning train to Chongqing

      Chongqing

      Day 12: Arrival/Hostel, Laitan ancient town, Chongqing city/Erling park

      Day 13: Dazu rock carvings, plane to Huangshan

      Huangshan

      Day 13: Arrival/Hostel, spend time in the city, if any left

      Day 14: Yellow Mountain, sleep there

      Day 15: Hongcun and Xidi, bus to Hangzhou

      Hangzhou

      Day 15: Arrival/Hostel

      Day 16: West Lake, Tiger Spring, Dragon well

      Day 17: Yellow Dragon cave, walk around in the city, late night train to Shanghai

      Shanghai

      Day 17: Arrival/Hostel

      Day 18-19-20: Explore the city, shopping before departure, relax after the long trip, flight home

      The part between Chongqing and Huangshan is a bit tricky with travel, we were initially planning to go to Zhiangjiaje, but is either a lost day for travel, or expensive flight. So the last part is not best planned yet. Please feel free to suggest!

      Thank you! Gr. Laszlo

      Huashan Jun 20, 2014 at 4:14 PM

      My son is going to climb the mountain and wants to see the Sunrise. 1. Can he make a reservation at a hotel on the mountain? I cannot find a way...Or must he just go there and hoe for the best? And 2. On the day after, once he has seen the sunrise, he wants to come back down to the train station where the fast G trains are going back to Beijing. How long will it take him to get down and to the train station, and what is the best way to do that? G672 leaves at 9:48 am, and G660 leaves at 11:35 - can he make either of those?
