Wow, I think you might be over doing it there.
I'm thinking that you can shorten the list by at least 50%.

You can't cover the entire China in 2 months. Perhaps a few regions at most.

You amazed me by knowing so many city in China.I think it is too much place for you in 2 month, you'd better shorten your travel, you can divide your trip to some parts:
1 BeiJing,qing dao, chengde
2 huangshan, nanjing,suzhou,shanghai( including some small village near shanghai),hangzhou
3 xi'an--tian shui---dunhuang
4 jiu zai gou---yun nan province,
5 Tibet
6 hai nan, hongkong,marcao

I am not specialist in travelling, I just show you the famous city in China, you can select some you like, but not too much ,otherwise you will tied of the trip.

Thanks for the posts. I will definately rethink my trip - I would probably need 12 months for all of the places listed.

Thanks again.:)
