Beijing - Xian - Chengdu - Leshan - Lijiang - Dali - Kunming - Guilin - Yangshuo - Guangzhou - Hong Kong - Macau


Short info

Our stay in China was a booked group trip. Since this was part of a longer trip, we booked the flight separately. The group trip started on the 3rd day in Beijing and ended on the 24th in Hong Kong. The additional nights we have organized locally, as well as the onward flight in a travel agency in Hong Kong. Travel time was June / July. Transport took place by chartered bus and public transport, we stayed mostly in customary hotels, partly in hotels with "international standard".
