      Travel agent or book myself for domestic flights and river cruise?

      China Dec 25, 2016 at 8:43 PM

      We will be in Shanghai in early June 2017 and would like to do a Yangtze River cruise from Yichang to Chongqin then fly to Xian for a couple of days then fly back to Shanghai again. Is it feasible to book this myself or does this need to be done through a travel agent and be on a private tour?
      I figure we don't need a tour guide while on the cruise, but is it easy enough to get from end of cruise in Chongqin to airport with maybe a quick look around or trip to the zoo if I just organise a guide/driver myself?

      Has anyone here booked a tour in China?

      China Dec 20, 2016 at 3:54 PM

      I'm planning a big trip to China next year (Beijing, Shanghai, Xi'an and maybe a few others) and I want to book either one big tour or a few smaller tours. I don't know whether to book a private tour (which costs more) or a group tour? I don't think I want to be on a tour bus full of people but am aware of the costs of private tours. I don't think I can travel in this region without a guide, especially as I have zero language skills.

      Has anyone had any experience with this? What should I look out for or be concerned about? I'm not really sure where to start.

      Also, does anyone know any good value places to book tours? Is it better to wait until i'm there and find them or book from an agent here?? Any help welcome!

      Dear fellow travellers
      I will be making my way to visit the different ethnic villages in Guizhou. I am currently doing my research on these places and found it confusing about the public transportation. I am coming from Guiyang and would like to do the following route.
      Guiyang -->Xijiang ->Ronjiang ->Zhaoxing -> Congjiang -> Kaili -> Guiyang

      My questions would be :
      1) Are there direct buses to all the above places or is there any someplace that i need to detour in order to follow the above route.
      2) Is there a better suggestion that the above one
      3) Is it possible that anyone would know of the timing of bus, the fare and the journey for the above route.

      Thanking all in advance for the assistance in helping me plan my itinerary.

      Train travel from Guilin to Shanghai

      Guilin Sep 2, 2010 at 6:58 AM

      I may visit Guilin, Longshen, and Guiyang but afterwards will move across to Nanjing. I see that trains go from Guilin to Shanghai and takes about 29hours. Is this recommended as a way to get to the east coast ? I know flying is quicker but the train journey would be a good experience i thought. So would it be easy to travel, without too many changes and interruptions, and is it a sleeper ? I would be travelling alone and am 57

      Zhenyuan Water Town--Black Dragon Cave

      Kaili May 21, 2010 at 7:48 PM

      Has anyone been here? I am thinking that it can be done as a day-trip from Guiyang, since there seems to be many trains from Guiyang to Zhenyuan proper (and back again). Is there any information on how to do the Wuyang river cruise to the Black Dragon Cave complex? I understand that the best part is to take photos from the river, and you can skip going through the buildings, so that's why I was considering doing it as a day trip from Guiyang (or any other city nearby that I can fly into from either Shanghai, Chengdu or Chongqing).

      Guizhou Sheng Sep 7, 2007 at 1:07 PM

      Does anyone have anything to say about Chishui in Guizhou province? There's a dearth of information about that place: I've searched Lonely Planet's ThornTree travel forum, VirtualTourist's tips and also the forums/interactive section and destination guide of Ctrip.

      A smallish group of us (2-5 people) would be visiting for October holiday week. We're all native Chinese speakers.

      How many days should we spend in Chishui?

      What would be the most convenient jumping-off point to get there -- Chongqing, Luzhou or Zunyi? Looking up the stuff on Ctrip, Chongqing -- Chishui buses are 4.5h, Luzhou -- Chishui 2.5h and Chongqing -- Luzhou 2.5h. :) All just part of research so far. Hongjiang in Hunan province would either be right before Chishui, or right after.

      None of us are fans of long-distance bus travel in China unless absolutely necessary... especially sleeper buses. Thus essentially I'm looking for a hub that'd be relatively easy to reach from Hongjiang (via Huaihua?) and with a relatively short bus ride to Chishui.

      Would appreciate tips/recommendations for accommodation (max of around 200 RMB for twin with ensuite), transport and sightseeing in general. Thanks in advance. :)

      Guizhou for May holiday week!

      Guizhou Sheng Apr 11, 2006 at 4:18 AM

      My friends and I will be heading to Guizhou for the May holiday week. Our tentative plans are to depart Shanghai (plane/train) on 29/4 (Sat) and be back in Shanghai by 7/5 (Sun) night, or at the very latest, early morning 8/5 (Mon).

      1) What are your best recommendations for sightseeing in Guizhou?
      1a) Ideally, we'd like to visit a Miao village, a Buyi village, a Shui village and a Dong village, without any repetition. I don't mind missing out Buyi and Shui villages due to time constraints, especially if they're not very photogenic... any opinions?
      1b) We'd also like to see 1 waterfall, 1 group of caves and enjoy 1 rafting experience. I've thought about going for Huangguoshu Waterfall, Zhijin Caves (instead of Longgong Caves) and the rafting at Maling River Gorge... any opinions? I've heard that the Zhijin Caves are not very well-run... If visiting Huangguoshu Waterfall, I'd ideally leave it till the end of the holiday week when there should be less tourists there.
      1c) It seems that northern Guizhou isn't very interesting, so I'm skipping that. Any other recommendations for the rest of Guizhou will be welcome!

      2) Apart from me, there should be about at least 4 other friends coming along. The number of people coming along could increase by quite a lot, but I'm not keen on having such a big group, due to logistics problems! It's pretty hard to satisfy everyone in a big group, and also less freedom for everyone. If I had my way, I'd take only a maximum of 3 other friends, and that's it. Any ideas on how to manage this? Especially since I don't want to offend anyone by being rude...

      3) Should we fly both ways, train both ways, or train and fly once each? I'm getting worried about the budget and time constraints! Train is cheaper, of course, but takes 33 hours each way; flying would be about 1500 RMB each way!

      4) Any recommendations on where to hire a vehicle for 5-10 people? Driver recommendations will also be very welcome. Minivans seem to take a maximum of 9 people... :(

      5) Any festivals during this period that'll be worth seeing? As far as my research shows, there're a number of festivals on 5/5 (Fri) as it's the 4th day of the 4th lunar month.

      6) Any recommendations for where to stay will also be very welcome! :) We're on a student budget, so nothing too expensive.

      Thanks in advance to all for any advice offered. Happy travelling!
