hmm, things you must and 'off the beaten track' might not be quite the same in Beijing. Most of the things you "must see" there are pretty big ones: The forbidden city, the great wall, the summer palace... There's an art district called Art 798 that might interest you. http://www.798space.com/index_en.asp. about 10 years ago
What's there to do in Guangzhou? Thinking about training it there for the airport, but wondering if there is any must-dos...
I'm with jm...not too much. There are some good clubs I think but I forget the names now. about 10 years ago
Is it safe to travel solo in China for a female? Sticking to the major spots, not really going off track.
Yeah, China is pretty safe in general. The biggest threats are scams and pickpockets (which can be ubiquitous in the major tourist places/train stations...). Messing with foreigners is highly frowned upon by the national government and they don't mess around when it comes to punishing those that disregard what they frown upon. almost 9 years ago
