Hi All,

Hope that some of you will be kind enough to help me out (again) on my trip. I am heading from Japan to China on Tuesday. Was planning to stay for 6weeks but we can only get a 30 day visa. I have the following plan:

We fly into Beijing and want to spend at least 7 days there

Xian for maybe 3 days

Shangahi for 5 days

10 days between Hong Kong and Macau before crossing into Vietnam.

What do you think of this plan?? I watched a programme on TV before I came away and the guide went to the Yellow Mountains of Huangshan and they looked AMAZING but I cant find any one who has been there on this site and I dont know how long it woudl take to do them and if I could do them on my own(ie not with a tour bus).

If any of you could help with this it would be great.

Thanks a million,

Dev xxxxxxxxxx

I am heading to the yellow mountains too, in about 8-10 days, I read lots about it and I am pretty confident it is easy enough to take a train from Shanghai and than a bus to one of the villages near the mountains, there are 2 different routes up, depending how fit you are and how much you want to walk..

When are you planning to go there?
