The obvious is the main attractions around Beijing, but I think Shanghai has much more to offer. The bund is old and very colonial and the new pudong area has an array of the worlds tallest buildings, hotels and restaurants. There are plenty of good restaurants too with western food if you need that comfort. In addition, if you like sport, not often the opportunity arises and it's worth it too as a circuit, the F1 Grand Prix is on 13-15th April. I think best seats are last corner by pit entrance - see loads of the the circuit - Hope this helps. almost 7 years ago
China is so big it helps to have a theme to keep your research focused. What are your interests? Are you looking at something historical, scenic or special interest?
Try to aim for a balance between big cities (hard to miss in terms of travel arrangements) and countryside; Sichuan, Yunnan and Guizhou are some of the most popular for the latter. almost 7 years ago
