Itinerary Advice

Jump to last reply

I was hoping I could get some feedback about this itinerary. I won't have that much time and I've been waiting for this trip for a while, so I'm tying to fit all my must sees in.
Land at PEK Nov 29th at 4:00 PM
Beijing-3 Days (Nov 30-Dec 2)
Nov 30-Great Wall Hike
Dec 1-Sites/Opera Show
Dec 2-Sites/Shopping
Overnight train to Xi’An on the 2nd at 8 PM
Xi’An-1 Day (Dec 3)
Arrive by train at 8 AM
Terra Cotta Warriors around town.
Late flight to Chengdu on the 3rd at 9:00-10 PM Possibly have hostel pick me up at airport since I'll be arriving late at night
Chengdu- 2 Days (Dec 4 and 5)
Dec 4th-Panda Research Center early morning, sites shopping after lunch
Dec 5th-Day trip to Leshan Giant Buddha area. Any remaining time will be for sites.
Dec 6th whole day spent flying to Siem Reap 2:30 PM-10 PM Again possibly have hostel pick me up at airport since I'll be arriving late at night
Siem Reap- 3 Days (Dec 7-9)
Dec 7-9 Angkor Wat, Aspara show one night, and around town/markets.
9 AM flight to Bangkok on the 10th
Bangkok-3 ½ Days (Dec 10-13)
Dec 10-check in at hostel by lunch see sites in town
Dec 11-Day trip to Ayutthaya (all day)
Dec 12-13 Around Bangkok
Fly home on the 14th at 11 AM
What do you guys think? I have already purchased my main international flight and the flight from Chengdu to Siem Reap because the price kept changing. I've read posts about peope visiting Xi’An in one day but should I cut Xi’An (and use that day in Beijing) and fly straight to Chengdu from Beijing? What about Ayutthaya? Should I leave that out in favor of another day in Siem Reap or Bangkok? Thanks for any advice. I appreciate any help.
