Q: China Summer Travel Vacation Ideas

I am trying to decide on some places to visit this summer in China. I have been here for many years, and I have done the usual spots. Anything very unique and special that you can recommend? Must see type of places.

I am thinking about doing the Yangtze River Cruise again. I really enjoyed it, but I have already done it and would prefer to do something new and different.

I am also contemplating another trip to Yunnan Province. I have been there, but did not get to see all that I wanted to see.

I am not a big cities type of person, so try to steer me clear of those kinds of locations.

Not sure of the Tibet restrictions, but there are some places off the beaten path there if you have a good connecting tour guide. I went to a nunnery that most people never see and some caves that had not been burned out by flame throwers yet, but soldiers in tents were everywhere in the city. It was worse than the British occupation with the IRA troubles years ago.

You ever been to Inner Mongolia? Hohhot for camel riding and grasslands.

That is a good idea. I wonder if it is much different than goingto Mongolia.

If you go to Yunnan go to kunming and go visit” The kingdom of the little people” ....it’s actually pretty fun and the little people make pretty good crafts and little odds and ends. ....it’s the closest thing to the shire in lord of the rings.... if all the hobbits were Chinese. It’s a bit exploitive...well actually it’s very exploitive.... but they put on a pretty good show.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
