Hi,

I'm planning to spend a coupleof/a few weeks travelling from Beijing to Shanghai in a few days. The key places I want to see include Qufu, Qingdao, Nanjing and Shanghai, although I would like to call in at a few other places. Can anyone reccommend more places to see, an idea of how long I should allow, and most importantly how much one should budget for, say, three weeks staying in these places and train fares?

I know that's a lot of questions, I suppose I'm asking in anyone has done something similar.

Thanks.

a couple of week is enough to visit China, if you like you can take a trip to Mount huangshang in Anhui province .it will takes you about 1 hour from shanghai to Mount huang by air ,6 hours by train. on the day of your arrive ,you can climb Mount huang and stay at hotel on the top of the Mount huang ,the next day you can come down and return to shanghai or other places like nanjing etc.

Skip Qufu. I was there in winter last year and it was pretty much a tourist trap. I'd rather spend the time on Taishan or Huangshan.
Eh... I'd say possibly 500 RMB/day would be ok, not rock-bottom though. Take overnight train sleepers wherever possible to save on accommodation and transport costs.

u really should go to nanjing.it is a good city.i have been there for 4 years. but if u go there in summer i am afraid it is a little hot and humid.u should go to xuan wu lake,qi xia mountain,Dr. sun mausoleum,ming palace ruins park,mingxiao mausoleun,etc
