Suggested Itineraries

Simon Foster Hunter Publishing ePub

The following itineraries can all be completed in seven to 10 days; if you have more time you can combine any of them to make a longer trip.

Arrive in Beijing and spend a few days soaking up the Imperial sights the Forbidden City, Temple of Heaven, Summer Palaces and the Great Wall. Spend your evenings enjoying Beijing duck, opera and maybe a trip to the acrobats. If you have time, take a train up to Chengde and spend a couple of days enjoying the imperial retreat before returning to the capital and flying on to Xi'an. Allow a full day at the Terracotta Warriors and another day to explore the fascinating walled city. Make sure you enjoy a Dumpling Banquet, as well as dinner in the Muslim markets. Reflect on your trip in the overnight train back to Beijing.

Fly into one of the international hub airports (Beijing, Guangzhou, Hong Kong or Shanghai) and then on to Chongqing. Spend a day in this mountainous city before boarding your boat for the spectacular three-day trip to Yichang (or Wuhan). Stop off at the Ghost City of Fengdu and take a stunning side-trip up the Lesser Three Gorges or Shennong Stream along the way. Disembark and fly on to your choice of the international hubs, where you can spend time enjoying the city and surrounding attractions before flying home. Remember that, if you choose the same hub to fly into and out of, this should reduce your ticket price.

Huangshan & Around

Simon Foster Hunter Publishing ePub

 

 

The Yellow Mountains

 

Towering over the south of Anhui province, the Huangshan range are arguably China's most beautiful mountains and are definitely worth putting on your itinerary if you're in the area. In developed eastern China, countryside is a rare treat and the fresh air and stunning scenery makes the Yellow Mountains a highlight of many visitors' trips to this part of the country. There are 72 peaks in all and the highest is only a little over 6,100 feet, but what the Yellow Mountains lack in stature they more than make up for in scenery. Lone pines perched on jutting crags mystically disappear and re-emerge from behind swirls of mist. The whole scene is fresh from a scroll painting. Huangshan is China as you dreamed it might be images of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon spring to mind and it's no surprise that parts of the movie were shot in the area. Although the top can be reached by cable car, the tough climb up adds to the sense of reward. It's worth staying on the mountaintop to maximize your chances of some good weather and to enjoy Huangshan's famed sunrise. There are also a host of other scenic spots in the vicinity and you can easily spend a few days here exploring the mountain, waterfalls and wildlife.
