I'm a young female professional travelling through China on my own this June 1-15th.
I will be coming either from Chang Mai (Thailand) or Hanoi (Veitnam).
I want to do a combination of adventure travel with hiking to access the beautiful scenary of China (mainly in the south from what I understand) and do the big ticket stuff ie. Beijing/Great Wall, Xi'an/Terracotta warriors.
- From the looks of it, Shanghai and Hong Kong just seems like a big city - I'm more interested in culture, old architecture and outdoor activities ie. hiking, etc. Please correct me if I'm wrong.
- Anyone have any suggestions of a good route that optimizes my time but hits all of the above?
- Any thoughts on the utility of the following and which combination would make a good route?:
- Zhangjiajie (Avator inspiration)
- Chengdu - specifically Jiuzhaigou (5 color pools/waterfalls)
- Tiger Leaping Gorge
- Yangshuo and Guilin area
- Er Wang Dong
- Is it safe and easy to travel through these parts as a single female speaking no Mandarin/Cantonese. Any tips on how to get around ie. reading signs, making trains, communicating with minimal language skills?
I am NOT trying to do ALL of these - rather wondering which are most worthwhile and make a good, practical route.
Any and all help is very much appreciated!
