    • 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 am travelling to Suzhou next week. I will be staying in Shilla Hotel Jinji Lake. And I want to visit Zigong Dinosaur museum during Sunday. How can I reach Zigong Dinosaur Museum from Suzhou? I couldn't find a direct train from Suzhou to Zigong. How can I reach Zigong through train or internal flight? I know the road is very long between Suzhou & Zigong, that's why I excluded automobile or bus transportation.

    • Hiking from jinshanlin to Simitai without a guide?

      China Apr 14, 2014 at 11:01 AM

      Hello,

      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 :-)

      Buying fast G train ticket right before departure (Beijing South to Shanghai)?

      Beijing Apr 3, 2014 at 5:59 AM

      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)?

      Or do I really have to pre-purchase online? Any suggestion on which website to buy (ctrip.com???). If I miss the train I have the ticket for, would it be too much trouble having to have the ticket (for the missed train) refund first, then but another one?

      I am leaving tomorrow, any quick advice would be highly appreciated! Thanks!

    • 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

      Transport Tianjin to Beijing

      by Mikebb Online Now Dec 20, 2013 at 3:27 PM

      I am looking at a cruise which includes a 3 night stop at Tianjin port. My problem is we visited Beijing in 2011 for 5 days and took tour to the major attractions.

      We do not want to take the tours offered by the cruise as they cover what we have already seen. We are confident in sightseeing Beijing by ourselves.

      Some questions:
      Is the rail station close to the cruise port?
      How many connecting trains to reach Beijing central district?
      How long would it take by train and is the service regular?
      What distance (km) and is it possible by taxi, or traffic too bad? Approx cost?

      Is there much to see in Tianjin. 2 full days in port might be a waste and it may be best to select another cruise.

      Appreciate all advice

      I have bought a tour for 5D4N in Beijing. But I have booked my flight ticket to arrive in Tianjin 2 days earlier than Day 1 of tour and also my departure flight is a day after the last day of the tour itinerary. This means I have at least two and a half extra days on my own.

      How much time should I spend in Tianjin? I arrive in Tianjin at about 3 pm and have two days before joining the tour.

      We will arrive at the cruise port in Xingang in October 2009 and would like to go to the Tianjin Railway Station to take the bullet train to Beijing. I need information on how to get to the bullet train from Xingang cruise port. Can someone tell me the approximate cost of a taxi from Xingang port to the railway station? Or is there a light rail train between Xingang and Tianjin? Or would it be better to take the bullet train to Beijing from Tanggu instead of Tianjin? If so, what would a taxi cost to the Tanggu station?

      We have been to China one before and love the country but it is sometimes hard to find information details from so far away.

      Thank you for your help,
