Yangshuo: Most Beautiful Mountains in China?

Posted by ryanjhall on 8/10/2018 at 08:07

I recently spent a month travelling around China and an absolute highlight was my 5 days in Yangshuo. The mountains and the river are absolutely stunning. I couldn't find any detailed video travel guides online, so I decided to put one together myself. I travelled as a backpacker, so I've covered hostel prices, getting around and the best things to do (including how to get up to the infamous TV Tower viewpoint). If you are interested, I'll leave the link here. Hopefully somebody will find it u ...

I was thinking about Lijiang or Chengdu ? I hear Lijiang is a little expensive though, I travel long term so I'd rather find somewher ...

Posted by Haggis101 on 24/6/2017 at 20:32

Hello, We are wondering what we should do for our proof of onward travel. We will be applying for our visa in Hanoi and won't leave for a few days after applying for it.

(This is for t ...

2-3 Weeks in China - Beijing to Chengdu, Shanghai to Yangshuo - To Ambitious?

Posted by aszasz94 on 26/12/2016 at 22:49

Hi there, I was looking for some advice about my upcoming trip to China. I am going to Japan for 2 weeks January 18th and plan to leave sometime in early February. I have read in many guide books and heard it would be best to travel China in March. This way I could avoid any left-over New Year scramble and get some better/warmer weather. Is it worth it to head to South Asia and wait until March by touring Vietnam, Laos or Cambodia or will mid-February be ok. Secondly, I was looking for some ad ...
