Itinerary tips China/South Korea

Jump to last reply

I'm taking the Trans-Mongolian Express to Beijing with a subsequent trip to North Korea in July. I then want to spend a few days in China before moving on to South Korea to visit my cousin. I'd appreciate some tips on the following loose itinerary:

- 02-22/07: St Petersburg-Beijing
--- Having spent 2 days in a tour group seeing the main attractions, would you recommend staying in Beijing for another 3 or taking a trip out of the city (bearing in mind July weather)?
- 25/07-01/08: North Korea
- 02- ~10/08: China (leaving from Beijing)
--- We would particularly like to visit Xian, before spending a day or two in Shanghai city & surroundings... other suggestions for this time?
- ~10-20/08: South Korea
--- A couple of days in Seoul, some time in Daegu and? I'd love to finish this intense trip somewhere relaxing!

China/South Korea dates are fluid - for example instead of staying in Beijing for 5 days would it be better to go to Xian then?
