Hi,

I'll be in China for 2 weeks in October. Flying into Hong Kong but want to travel outside there and see a bit more of China. Can anyone suggest any good places around that area (obviously not too far from hong kong as we are restricted by time)

Thanks
Bob

One time when I was in Hong Kong, I went to visit Guilin in China because it wasn't too far away. The cruise down the Li River is unforgetable! It's absolutely beautiful, a somewhat mystical, magical experience.

Cheers, just looked that up and it looks beautiful. Roughly how far is it from HK?

I'd say around 475km (NNW form Hong Kong).

Macau is also worth a day trip since it's close to Hong Kong, you just take a ferry there.

I agree that with a tight schedule, the best choice is Guilin and Yangshuo. Spend more time around Yangshuo than Guilin. If you want to take a train, there is a nice route. First take a two-hour train to Guangzhou and spend a few hours shopping and eating at Beijing Lu (Street). From Guangzhou to Guilin, there is a direct train and if I remember right, it took about 7 or 8 hours.

Hello,

I will be in Shanghai for 3 days starting on the 18th of July. Can anyone suggest places of interest to visit? Please also include the approximate cost of each tour/visit? any suggested tour organizers? I just booked a dinner with acrobatic performance. I would like to do some sightseeing during the day. Thanks.

There are a few nice places near to Shanghia. Wuxi is a place where you can see & experience the Grand Canal. There's also another city nearby (I'll remember the name later and post it) which is known as the beautiful city of gardens. So you can definitely take a couple of great day trips. The acrobatic performance should be great.
