    Don't try to cover too much in one trip, as you'll miss much of the authenticity you ate looking for. Depending on the time frame, but if it's your first trip, must hit the prime stops: Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Hong Long and terra-cotta in Xian. Personally, I loved Xinjiang and the Turpan/Kashgar region, very different side of China. almost 5 years ago

    I agree. China is a rather big country and you must choose for a first trip something like following route: Beijing (Great Wall, Forbidden City and Summer Palace), Xi'an (Terracotta Warriors), Shanghai with trips to Suzhou and Hangzhou). It will take 10-12 days. almost 5 years ago

    Oh my. China is huge. Best way is to focus on one big city and other smaller cities adjacent to that city. Eg: Beijing- Tianjin or shanghai- hangzhou-Suzhou or harbin-dalian etc. almost 5 years ago
