My hubbie and I are thinking of going to China.
The plan is to save now and go 2 weeks in April 2015 or 2 1/2 weeks July 2015. I have looked a bit on cnto.org
We don't know anyone who has gone and our broad outline of an itinery is below based on what we have read and are interested in. Any advice please would be appreciated....
1. Fly to Bejing- 2 nights on Beijing...the sights
2. Fly or train to Xi'an- 2 or 3 nights....terracotta army
3. Fly or train to Chengdu, 2 nights- pandas
When is the best time to go? for these areas... April or July?
Flights or trains between destinations?
Are we giving too much time in any one area or not enough?
Any other areas/sights you would recommend? We are interested in Buddhist/History culture
Who would you recommend fly with?
Should we book direct with a tour group?
How much money should we aim to bring with us?
Any advice please, Cheers!
