Hi there, I am currently in Beijing after travelling up from Shangai with my girlfriend. Our next stop is Xi'an for a few days to check out the warriors.
I am wondering which route is best to take next as our Vietnam visa activates on June 1st. We dont want to waste money on mundane sightseeing,but do want to see places of real interest and get away from touts and rammed cities!
Thought about going to Chengdu after Xi'an,then on to Guilin and finish up in Kumming? Basically we need somewhere with cheap accommodation where we can soak up some days before getting to Vietnam. Also,are there more travellers in and around Vietnam hostels e.t.c? The hostels in China seem pretty dull!?
Thanks in advance!
