Q: Before we leave, what should we see? What should we do?

My wife got her visa finished a few weeks ago. We're going home soon, and before we do go, what should we see, and where?

 

We've already been to the following provinces (and many of their cities, so don't list anything therein):

 

Anhui (awesome)

Beijing

Guangdong (the worst food in all of China... sorry)

Heilongjiang (awesome)

Henan

Hubei (my wife hates Wuhan, this is how you know we're soulmates)

Hunan (my wife also hates Changsha now; we went back recently and we were BOTH hulking daily. She hates it. Again, soulmate)

Jiangsu

Shandong

Shanghai

 

So that leaves the other stuff... where to, and why? We'd prefer some beautiful scenic areas which aren't beset by smog, and we've been strongly considering Yangshuo or whatever. Next week we're headed home, so let's make it count!

 

I'll also have some fresh and hilarious (well, I think it's hilarious!) drama to share here once we get out of the country.

I would consider Sanya on Hainan, there is an Island with monkeys and a pretty big statue. If you are lucky you can get a really good deal on some actual 5 star hotels/resorts for visit. 2-4 days would suffice and then you have seen China's Hawaii. 

 

I cannot help to think it is strange that you return to this site at pretty much the same time that the resident Wumao decides to take a break.

What about a visit to Inner Mongolia?  Head for the Grasslands and, if what my adopted sister tells me is true, you'll see more stars than you've ever seen.  Or try Bingyugou in Liaoning -I've still got to go but everybody I know who has been, Western or Chinese, has loved it.

How about Hangzhou in Zhejiang?  You've got the West Lake, a myriad of historic temples, tea plantations.  As long as you don't visit during a national holiday, the throng of tourists shouldn't be too bad.  And if you're on your way out, Hangzhou is well connected to Shanghai by high speed rail with many trains to choose from, some taking as little as 50 minutes for the journey (I'm assuming you'd need to leave from Shanghai or Beijing to get back to the States....).

Go to Yunnan! You hear a lot of people complaining about how Dali and Lijiang are too touristy now but it's still absolutely worth it. In Dali, rent a bike for a few days and just cycle around all the little villages around the Erhai Lake and then explore the nearby mountains. Then head to Lijiang for a day and from there take a van to the Tiger Leaping Gorge. The gorge was one of my all-time travel highlights so far. The scenery was so beautiful and the thrill of walking along (and surviving) the dangerous high-path with it's super-narrow, slippery parts and 1000+ meter drops and constant threat of falling rocks was the ultimate adrenalin kick. The food was so delicious in Yunnan too and the people were some of the friendliest I've ever met.

surpriseGo to Hong Kong for sure! Also, go to the island of Macau and gamble all of your earnings before you go. NO j/k! In Hong Kong you should go see the laser light show and go to the PEAK. The laser light show is a guiness world record. The Peak is probably the coolest spot in Hong Kong. You can go to the wax museum. 

 

In Macau go to the Venetian. It's probably the best casino they have there. He he, I said: "casino"! (Drunk!

Whatever you do, don't go to the island of Macau, that place is a scam. The peninsula called Macau could be worth a visit, you wife needs a visa though. We did manage to get my wife to Macau with a residence permit to my home country in her Chinese passport. 

Same applies to Hong Kong, but Hong Kong is an actual island, although part of the area known as Hong Kong is also more than just one island and the part that is a peninsula, Kowloon, is where you want to go in Hong Kong (imho)

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
