10 days in China during May 1st Holiday

Jump to last reply

Your help and suggestions please!

I booked an air ticket to Beijing from the 26th of April till the 6th of May. Unfortunately after my booking I heard that I should avoid this holiday period like the plague because of the huge crowds. So, what should I do to suffer the least and enjoy my stay there?
I have made no plans yet. But I want for sure to go to Xi'an for 2 days and vist the terracota army there.
I am thinking to:

1. Stay in Beijing and see all the sites (plus Great Wall) during the 27th, 28th and 29th of April with no crowds

2. Relax in Beijing during the first day of the Holiday (30th of April)

3. Take the train to Xi'an on May 1st because I suppose it will be less crowded to travel in the middle of the Holiday (all the people will travel in the afternoon of the 29th of April and the next day. Am I right?)

4. Go and see the terracota Army in the afternoon of May 2nd because all domestic tourists will be heading home during that time and the tourist site will be relatively calm (May the 3rd is working day, right?)

5. Return to Beijing in a crowd-free train in the evening of May 3

6. Enjoy my last days in Beijing or maybe take a trip to Datong to see the buddhist caves and stay one night there.

I don't know... what do u say? Is it manageable or am I dreaming? The truth is, I don't know anything about transport in China and I speak no chinese (only Nihao I am going to say all the time). Will I make it or I am going to be swept away by the crowds???

thank you so much!!!
