Visit to China - Feb/March 2014
Looking at a serious plan now.
It is a huge trip so needs loads of planning so I have started now.
I am wanting to at least book flights. Malaga to Chongqing central China is a great starting point looking at Friday 28th Feb 2014 ( I did look at the 3rd March but that seems a waste of the weekend) return on the 27th March with Finn air the price is €673 only 14 hours out but 30 back there is a long stay in Helsinki but enough time to actually visit Helsinki so still a great flight as it arrives early evening. The flights can be changed before for €100 and it is a 25% cancellation so they are pretty flexible fares.
Plan is to go from Chongqing to Chengdu, drive to Yaan Beifenxia gorge see Pandas, ( Shezuan Province) 2 nights
Very close South to Emei Shan trek the mountain (more details as you can also take a bus and cable car ) visit Dafo the great buddah in Leshan. 2 nights
Make our way to Zhondian either fly Chengdu to Kunming and then to Zhongdian drive or train plan to be made yet…Between here and Lijiang is Tiger Leaping gorge, Trek here possible ( Yunnan Province) very Tibetan 3 nights Then train to Kunming takes 9 hours
Then Kuming to Nanning Guanxi Province fly 1 hour (12 hour train). 150 kms West of Nanning is the Deitan waterfall close to the Vietnamese border Karst hills grubby towns and amazing scenery, bamboo rafting etc. Interesting ethnic groups 3 nights
From Nanning drive to Beihai and take the Ferry to Hainan Island
Hainan interhash 13th to the 16th
After that you may wish to fly Hainan to Shanghai or Hong Kong on the 17th 3 nights, Beijing great wall etc 2 nights side trip to Xian terracotta warriors 1 night return to Chongqing Yangze river cruise if time and then flight on the 27th
Looking at the possibility of hiring a private driver wherever we can and using the train seems a shame to fly over China!
This is a really basic initial plan I just want to put some ideas down, try and get some rough timings and book the international flight.
Please let me know if you are serious and I will send flight details so you can book them, or you can send me all your details and the cash and I will book it all as a group.
You then need to register for interhash $180 at the moment. Visas can wait until after Christmas.
Budget I would say hotels per night €25 pp more if you want good ones, food is minimal, internal travel I would budget 400 euro plus whatever you fancy doing after Interhash.
In China you have to pay for every thing you want to see so there are also entry fees and they are not cheap around €10 a go some less some more.
I will continue to work on it but this is a start.
All ideas welcome.
