I'm doing the final details on my trip to China on May, 2013.
As I'll do an itinerary along the Hexi Corridor, starting in Jiayuguan, I'd like to know:
Is 24 hours enough for Jiayuguan's main highlights?
I shall arrive at the airport at around 16:00, will have a night at downtown then will leave the city by train the next day at around 15:00.
I plan to visit the Overhanging Great Wall, the Fort and the Fire Tower (if it is actually worth the visit). Considering my timeframe is possible to do these highlights without hurrying up? In order to save time going around these spots I'd go by taxi.
I have no idea on what is the recommended time to allocate for each of these attractions. 2 hours each is enough? 3 hours?
On the first day I'm thinking about the Overhanging Great Wall as I've read it closes later (7:00 PM) in Spring, so going there and spending about one to two hours is enough?
Then, on next morning I plan to visit the First Fire Tower (about one to two hours) and then going to the Fort, spending the rest of the morning in there. Then it is time to lunch, pack things up and head to the railway station.
Also, I read about the Fort's ticket allowing for entrance in the other spots (First Fire and Overhanging Great Wall). Is that correct?
Any suggestions or changes are very welcome.
