Visiting China, HK and Taipei, have some free time and need suggestions

Jump to last reply

Hello!

I will be in Beijing, Shanghai, Taipei and Hong Kong on a trip with 70 of my classmates. This is a pre-organized trip so most of our sightseeing and hotels are pre-planned/pre-arranged. However, I still have some time left in each city to do a few things on my own:

Beijing: Staying at the Beijing Renaissance Capital hotel.

One evening, after 8 pm the group wants to go clubbing and I'm absolutely not interested in this. After a certain age, clubbing and such is just beyond me. Any interesting things you feel I could do instead? I love photography, FWIW.

Shanghai:

- Have almost a full free day (9 am to 4 pm).

Hong Kong:
- There is one evening at Temple street. I've never been there. But I've heard its touristy. Should I do it just once? Thoughts?

Taipei:
- Shilin night market: One night we're going there from 7-9 pm and then the folks are heading clubbing. Any suggestions on what I can do after?
- Have a dinner at Xin Yeh another night. After that we're free 9 pm onwards. Apparently there is a 24 hour bookstore in that area. Is it worth visiting?
- 2.5 hours in the afternoon at Jiu Fen streets. Any suggestions on vegetarian food there?
- 11:30 am to 4 pm on another day: Completely free.

We will be visiting in the first two weeks of January.

Thanks!
