In 2011 I crossed borders with China at the border with Laos. I traveled overland to Beijing and have visited some recommendable places that I would like to share with you.

  1. The Great Wall Ruins (长城)(I believe I was at Jiankou – 箭扣, hard to tell)
  2. Lotus Mountain (华山)
  3. The Terracotta Army (秦始皇兵马俑)
  4. Li River (漓江)
  5. Xuankong Temple (悬空寺)
  6. Yungang Grottoes (云冈石窟)
  7. The Bund (上海外滩)
  8. Xiaoxihu Lake (小西湖)

There are many more interesting and/ or beautiful sights in China, but unfortunately I did not have the chance to visit them yet.

In Yunnan I would visit Lijiang + hike in the Tiger Leaping Gorge.

In Shanghai I would recommend to visit the propaganda museum, Yuan bar for a good cocktail, and I would go to the YuYuan gardens/area.
