Help with 29-day China itinerary

Jump to last reply

I am planning to visit China this August for a 29 day tour. When I was last in China, I was in Beijing, but I didn't see any other places other than south China. I am personally fluent in Chinese (know approximately 4000 characters), so I'm more interested in a do-it-yourself approach and don't want to use English-speaking guides. (but I would be open to local guides).

This trip to China, I want to go through central/west China primarily by train and get a sense of not only the sites but also the scope of the country, though I'm not so interested in spending lots of time on slow trains. I'm also interested in history and cultural museums. Here is a rough outline of where I plan to visit so far. Please comment about what could be changed and improved:


Shanghai Region – 7 days
Shanghai – 2 days
Suzhou – 1 day 1
Hangzhou – 2 days
Wuxi – 1 day
Nanjing – 2days

Wuhan Region – 5 days
Hefei 1/2 day + night (or Jiuhuashan?)
Jiujiang & Lushan 2 day (Nanchang day trip?)
Wuhan 2 days
Changsha 1 day (day trip)

Xi’an-Zhengzhou Region– 7-8 days
Zhengzhou 1-2 day
Visit Henan Provincial Museum; Temple of the City God.
Luoyang 2 days
Huashan 1 day
Climb Mount Hua
Xi’An 3 days

Plane from Xi’an to Chengdu.

Sichuan – 8 days
Chengdu 3 days
See Chuanju (川剧)
Zigong 1 day
Dazu 1 day
Chongqing 1 day
++
Return to Shanghai, take 1 day before flight out.
Total: 29 days
