      Chengdu 22 hours ago

      Hey people. I'm in Chengdu with my girlfriend at the moment, and we are looking for something fun to do, that ain't the typical "oh go see peoples park" or "look at something really chinese" - No we want to have fun. Bowl, swim, skate - whatever. Something funny for people who lives here as well. Do you have any suggestions to what we might be able to do ?

    • 5 weeks in china traveling with child!

      Shenzhen Aug 15, 2015 at 12:59 AM

      hey I am looking for advise..
      During next years summer holidays July 2016 I am hoping to travel to china so far my plans are to:
      fly from London to Beijing were I intend on spending 5 nights, then fly to Shenzhen were I will be spending 21 nights, then over to Hong Kong for 7 nights.
      I have already started looking into costs of flights accommodation and reserved and booked certain parts of this trip ..
      its more other expenses that I cant get a general idea of like the cost of food, transport and day to day living cost.
      I will be traveling with my 7 year old daughter obviously traveling with a child brings along more worries then going solo, any advise on attractions, things to just any general advice regarding this would be of great help.
      Also while in Shenzhen I am hoping to find some volunteer work just 2/3 days week within a school setting ideally summer schools, play group/English school ect.. This is just an idea, as I work in education day to day within a high school specialising in working with SEN within a main stream setting, and think this would be amazing opportunity for both me and my child. obviously I would need to find somewhere that wouldn't mind her being with me but as an idea I was wondering if this was possible?
      any help would be brilliant

      I was planning on spending 3 nights in Guilin before taking Li river cruise to Yangshuo and spending 3 nights there. 6 nights total in the area. But from what I've heard, Yangshuo is the place to be. Is there a lot More do in Yangshuo that Guilin? Should I spend just 1 night Guilin and 5 in Yangshuo?
      On another note, We want to do the rice terraces but my dad has bad knees and can't walk long distances or climb. I'd really like to stay there 1 night but with dads mobility issues I don't know if it's a good idea. Would it be better to just do a 1 full day tour to rice terraces? If so, should we take tour from Guilin or Yangshuo?

    • Suzhou Grand Canal Cruise

      by tansteven22 Online Now Nov 8, 2011 at 6:26 PM

      Hi, I would appreciate it if someone can help me in this. My family will be in Suzhou next week and we would like to take the Grand Canal Cruise. I have been reading postings from various sites and this makes me confused. Some recommended to take the cruise in front of Tiger Hill. Others said that cruise starts at Shuishang Lvyou Wharf. But I could not find the location of Shuishang Lvyou Wharf on the Suzhou map. Yet another site advises that "guests should purchase tickets at the port beside Renmin Bridge within the central urban space of Suzhou. the value is CNY35 per person, and therefore the cruise lasts for concerning eighty minutes".

      Any advise on exact location to take the cruise is most appreciated.

      Side (daily trips) from Shanghai

      by KaterinaJordan Online Now Sep 14, 2011 at 7:51 AM

      Hi all,

      We are planning to visit Shanghai on March 2012 and stay for 9 days there.

      Our plans for side trips is to spend 2 days. We are interesting to visit "water towns", see picturesque canals, old houses and gardens, take a boat ride etc.

      A draft plan is one day to Hangzhou and the other one to Suzhou.

      What are your proposals?

      I read that Zhanghzou is a tourist trap. What other villages can be combined with Suzhou and how we can go fm Suzhou there?
      What is your opinion about Tongli, Nanxun?

      Also is it cheaper to buy silk fm these towns than in Shanghai?

    • Tongli instead of Souzhou

      by carlos40 Online Now Sep 6, 2009 at 11:06 AM

      Hi, in October I want to go by night train from Beijing to Souzhou and than take a morning bus to Tongli, where I want to stay 2 or max. 3 nights. I expect Tongli to be a little bit smaller than Souzhou, which I would prefer, because after Tongli I will continue to Shanghai. Is Souzhou a must? I have already seen gardens in Beijing and I'm not such a garden fan. I would prefer to see a typical water town with all the little bridges and waterways. If I stay for 3 nights I even could do a daytrip back to Souzhou but concerning my interests a daytrip to Xitang would be maybe better. Or does Souzhou offer better views of a typical water town (brideges, canals) than Tongli and Xitang?.

We will only be there for the day, but I'd like to purchase a length of silk fabric as a souvenir to make something back at home. Does this sound possible? Or is it very expensive for a bolt of cloth, maybe a few yards/feet/metres? Where is the best place to go to bargain for a good deal on a decent length of silk cloth? Thanks!
