April 25-May 6 in china

Jump to last reply

Haven't been to china since 1981, when things were QUITE different! and even then,only to Canton and Beijing. My partner is a fairly terrified flyer, so as much of our travel needs to be by (overnight?) train as possible. He has meetings in Beijing until the 24th, so in addition to other requests, 'second string' things for me to do alone in Beijing advice is welcome (He'll want to see the Wall, Tianamen, Palaces, etc. WITH me!)

We have FF free tix RT NY-Singapore, will fly INTO Beijing on the 21st, but can return to Singapore from almost anywhere (that has jets, al least 737s if I want him to get on them!)

Is an itinerary to include 2-3 days in Beijing after his meetings, Guilin, a Yangtse cruise and Shanghai feasible? Thoughts on how best to construct it? I'm JUST beginning to think through options. We are experienced travelers, no fear of(in fact a delight in) strange foods, places, situations. Reasonable at deciphering characters in Chinese.

Thoughts about sights, hotels (say in the $150 a night range), best trains, etc. would b MUCH appreciated, as well as input on any and all itinerary issues. Is continuing to Shanghai reasonable, or too far?

If this is unreasonably broad, let me know and I'll post again after more "homework".
