China Travel Tips & Suggestions

Wudang Shan (Wudang Mountain), the famous Taoist mountain, is close to Wuhan. Xiang Fan is a cool stopover to get to the mountain, about an hour away.
The old town is a must place to see. Go to Shangri-La.
I love Beijing! The air quality is terrible, the traffic is a nightmare, and all of the tourist sights are crowded, but I still love Beijing because there is so much to see and do. Locals are very friendly, but make sure you bring a Mandarin phrase book. I easily spent six days here.
Hangzhou is an absolutely beautiful city. I took it as a 4 day trip out of Shanghai where I was studying and fell in love.
I live in Chengdu, so if you're looking for a cool party or exhibition check out the noncommercial platypusmusic.cn website.
Shanghai is like any big city and it feels too Western. The old city and Yuyuan Gardens is touristy but beautiful and the area across the water from the Bund is beautiful. There is not much to do here, so after three days I was ready to move on.
For Tianmen Mountain, Zhangjiajie is a fine location. For the rest of what you'd go to Zhangjiajie for (Golden Whip Stream nature hike; Yellow Dragon Caves; Baofeng Lake; and of course the Avatar-movie-type mountains, including "Hallelujah Mountain," stay in Wulingyuan. This is China, so don't expect Western standards …
The Terracotta Army and the walled city are fantastic, inside the walls are old markets which are fun, but two days max is enough for Xi'an. Outside the walls are dreary houses and factories.

Hohhot is a strange place in that it is very touristy but it's not an easy place to be a tourist (unless maybe you speak Mongolian and have a vehicle). The city itself, the capital of Inner Mongolia, is typical of China although cleaner and of a more comfortable size than many Chinese big cities. If you are coming from …
Daocheng is a small town, in Sichuan province, in the southwest of China.

Probably you will have to …

It is a great place to escape the hustle …
Kunming is the main city in the Yunnan province, a city with only a few things in common with other cities in China.

Bouncing along the dirt road in a tiny bus stuffed with big bags of rice, packages, babies on knees, sweaty boys, and big-hatted ladies, you will feel the excitement of venturing slightly off the tourist track and into the calmer, more rural side of China that is Xingping. Xingping is a quaint yet beautiful town …
