      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).

      Does below makes any sense

      Guilin City tour

      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.

      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.

My place is very near to the campus of the Fudan university. Do you know by chance any similar interesting museums or art exhibition in that area?
