    • Hiking from jinshanlin to Simitai without a guide?

      China Apr 14, 2014 at 11:01 AM


      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 :-)

    • 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!

      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)?

    • 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
      The happy travellers Joactor

      1. Does Shenyang have some type of subway or railway system for getting around the city? If not, is it supposed to get one sometime in the future? When, if so?

      2. Is there anywhere on the north side of the city to buy "foreign" type groceries like block cheese (as opposed to the fake slice cheese found in all the grocery stores) or tortilla shells or anything like that?

      3. Is there anywhere in Shenyang to find Mexican food either in a restaurant or grocery store?

      Please answer even if you can only answer one of the questions! I appreciate any help!
