Guanxi, Guizhou, Hunan - suggestions?

Jump to last reply

I am started very, very preliminary research for our 2nd trip to China. The first was a rush affair in February 1997 for a wedding. So we covered Beijing, and the Wall & Xi’an & a very non-touristic Handan. This time around, we have set our sights further south. Enter/exit via Hong Kong. Since big cities are increasingly annoying to us, we would probably just stay 2 nights (one full day for the greatest hits) & move on.

Yongshuo: A nice stay, maybe 3 nights in a rural boutique like Yangsuo Tea Cozy.
Longsheng: A leisurely stop or a night for the morning photo opps?
Possibly 2 – 3 nights at Dong Village Hotel or similar.
After the long drive maybe Leishan for 2 nights?
Zhenyuan and/or Fenghuang as night(s) worthy or photo stops only?
Zhangjiajie for 2 -3 nights.
Then the fastest route home.

(The complete reverse would be just as easy or better?)

For transportation we would use planes, high-speed trains & automobiles. Maybe private drivers at times where it works. We don’t travel rough & we are well above the hostel level & willing to pay a reasonable premium but if I can self-book it all???

Questions:

When? Our window is February – August so the fall season is out. May or June would be ideal but we would not like a soggy or cruelly hot trip.

Any other suggestions - especially re places & hotels - are welcomed.

Ian
