I will be traveling to Beijing on business in May.
I plan to take 2-3 days off from work at the end of the trip and travel to Mt Huashan to hike the crazy trails there.
Do I need to make travel reservations in advance or can I make the reservations when I get to Beijing?
I might be interested in taking the overnight train from Beijing to Xi'an, then head to HuaShan first thing in the morning. Possibly spend 2 days in Huashan and hopefully stay at one of the hotels on the peaks. Then take the train back to Beijing from Xi'an overnight and fly back to NY.
Can I just book all the travel and hotels last minute once I get to Beijing?
