      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?

      by mingmat Online Now Jul 28, 2008 at 1:14 AM


      I have never been to China except Tibet. I want to come to Longyan to meet a friend and his family. What's the best way to reach Longyan. I might first come to Beijing or Chengdu. I need helpful information on train service from these two places to Longyan. How far, how long the journey and is it helpful, etc. I can't speak Chinse is that a problem. Thank you.

      by chinchin Online Now May 2, 2006 at 9:10 PM

      I plan to go from Longyan to Kunming on 30th may.
      I checked : K231 train ; leaves 21:43 and arrive 08:47 ( not stated the next day or next next day)
      I reckon it is around 36 hours.
      Soft sleeper around 650rmb.
      Has anyone done this before ? Comfortable ? Clean ?
