3 weeks itinerary China

Jump to last reply

Hi all,

We are planning a 3 week holiday in China with my girlfriend, between 21st of July and 11th of August. It will be our first trip, however, I will get a slight feel of China when I will be working 2 weeks, just before our holiday, nearby Shanghai, in Jiang Yin. Below our first idea of what we could see/do. Any suggestions, corrections and advice would be much appreciated.

Itinerary 3 weeks:

Day 1: arrival Shanghai, take night train to Beijing

Beijing

Day 2: Arrival/Hostel, Tiananmen Square, Jingshan Park, Red theater Kung Fu Show

Day 3: Mutianyu Great Wall, Ming Tomb, Birds Nest, Water Cube

Day 4: Summer Palace, Hutong, Peking Duck dinner

Day 5: Lama temple, Beihai Park, Temple of Heaven, night train to Pingyao

Pingyao

Day 6: Rishengchang Bank, Wang Family residence, Shuanglin temple, City wall, night train to Xi’an

Xi’an

Day 7: Arrival/Hostel, City wall, Bell tower, Big goose pagoda, Tang Dynasty show

Day 8: Terra Cotta Army, Huaging hot spring, late night plane to Chengdu

Chengdu

Day 8 late night: Arrival/Hostel

Day 9: Pandas, Green Ram temple, Remnin Park, Hot Pot dinner

Day 10: Le Shan Buddha, Mt. Emei base (sleep there)

Day 11: Mt. Emei summit, sleep in Chengdu

Day 12: Early morning train to Chongqing

Chongqing

Day 12: Arrival/Hostel, Laitan ancient town, Chongqing city/Erling park

Day 13: Dazu rock carvings, plane to Huangshan

Huangshan

Day 13: Arrival/Hostel, spend time in the city, if any left

Day 14: Yellow Mountain, sleep there

Day 15: Hongcun and Xidi, bus to Hangzhou

Hangzhou

Day 15: Arrival/Hostel

Day 16: West Lake, Tiger Spring, Dragon well

Day 17: Yellow Dragon cave, walk around in the city, late night train to Shanghai

Shanghai

Day 17: Arrival/Hostel

Day 18-19-20: Explore the city, shopping before departure, relax after the long trip, flight home

The part between Chongqing and Huangshan is a bit tricky with travel, we were initially planning to go to Zhiangjiaje, but is either a lost day for travel, or expensive flight. So the last part is not best planned yet. Please feel free to suggest!

Thank you! Gr. Laszlo
