A Travellerspoint blog

Deciding where to go..

While the main draw of going to China this summer is of course the Beijing Olympics, we want to see a lot of other things while we are there. I've started to make a list of places and points of interest I'd like to explore while I'm there. If anyone has any suggestions of fun things to see that aren't on my list, please let me know!

Beijing
· Great Wall
· Forbidden City
· The Ming Tombs
· Temple of Heavan

Xi’an
· Museum of Terracotta Warriors
· Ruins of an ancient 6000 year old city

Guilin
· Li river cruise
· Reed Flute Cave

Shanghai
· Yuyuan Lu River Garden
· Jade Buddha Temple
· Shanghai Museum

First Entry!

Inspired by both Stephanie and now Kailey I decided to start a travel blog of my own. I'm unsure as to what the internet access will be like in China, but I'll update and add pictures whenever possible.

So here's some details about the trip! In a few weeks here I'm going to China for about a month with three awesome people: Kailey Offerman, Roommate extraordinare, (read her travel blog here), Alex Wills, my awesome better half who has no travel blog yet, and LiHao Zhang, former UCSC friend and now NYU student who's parents are kind enough to let us stay with them while we are there!

Our Flight Itinerary:

July 22, 11:50 PM

Return Trip:
Monday, August 18 4:15 PM
