We're landing in Guangzhou in about 6 am in the morning on Wed. The only flights direct to Huangshan from Guangzhou is at 19:25. If that is the case, our whole day is gone.I have different scenarios that I was trying to play out.
So my next scenario would be to go to Hangzhou first (Wed - Fri) and that would leave Huangshan (Fri - Mon). We really want to avoid the weekend and the weekend crowds. Last case scenario?
Wed -- Fly out of Guangzhou to Huangshan from 19:25 and arrive 20:50, go to our hotel.
----- Is there anything open after we go to our hotel and settle in? What time does the shops closed in Tunxi? -----
Thu -- Huangshan in the AM on Thur. night in the summit.
Fri -- Huangshan; go back down to the mountain on Western Steps.
Sat -- AM: Huangshan to Hangzhou by BUS
Wed -- Fly directly from Guangzhou to Hangzhou w/our luggage (8:00 - 10:15) -- Take the bus from Hangzhou to Huangshan (3 hour bus ride) -- Spend the evening in Tunxi
-------Is there a place where we can store our luggage in Hangzhou?-------
Thu -- AM to Cable Car (1.5 hour)--Huangshan--Spend the night
Fri -- Huangshan
Sat -- Huangshan to Hangzhou by Bus again.
Do we have the time for the surrounding villages (Hongcun, Xidi, Mukeng) with any of the scenarios?
