If you are wondering what places you should see in China and only want to come once….and insist on DIY. Here is my suggested itinerary route.
The home of 3 national parks, one being featured in Avatar movie.
Short time in Changsha, mainly just to get to Zhangjiajie
A few more days back in Shanghai, including Disneyland!
2 days in Chengdu- see the pandas!
My time in Xi’an for the end of Chinese or Lunar New Year and visiting the Terracotta Soldiers.
My time in Shanghai celebrating Chinese or Lunar New Year 2018, year of the Dog!
My time in Beijing, China- jumping head first!
The adventure started before even leaving the Czech Republic!
