Trip Report Back from 21 Superb Days in Seoul, Beijing, Shanghai

Jump to last reply

My head is still a bit foggy so I will not go into details now, but just wanted to thank everyone (Shanghainese, KimJapan, PetitePois, John M, Rkkwan, Easytraveler, Paulchili, Koreaprincess, and everyone else including the very congenial local people I met....) who was so helpful in aswering my Endless questions and in allaying my fears of traveling alone in China. The trip was fantastic all around.... and incredibly free of any difficulties!

My trip comprised:

7 days/6 nights in Beijing; 5 nights/days in Shanghai; (train between the two) and the remaining time in Seoul. This proved to be an excellent time outlay which provided lots of time for taking it easy and schedule-free exploring.
Hotels were the Peninsula Beijing and Le Royal Meridien in Shanghai; both proved to be excellent choices. (I stayed with a relative in Seoul)

I will report more when I am a bit over the (not too bad) jet lag....
