Resolved Question: I'm planning a month long
I want to see The Great Wall, The Terra Cotta Warriors, Tianamen Square, and some of the shrines.
What else should I include? What about Mongolia?
I do not care to see Shanghai or Hong Kong.
I will probably be traveling when the weather is suitable.
Please advise any places of interest in my month long tour.
Thank You I've been to Guilin and Guangzhou. I agree, one needs a translator or a tourist guide once inside mainland China. I enjoyed my short trip to southern China a few years back. Time was a factor then, which is why I am setting aside a month this time.

Resolved Question: China historical question
Hi, i am going on holiday to china around march time. And i am really inspired by how people used to live in china decades ago. I would like to visit some historical places in china while i am there, any suggestions? i am looking for some towns or places that still keep the Ancient living style... im talking about places that are still living the samurai/kung fu/peacefull live era. Like villages that are quiet and calm. OR places that live the meiji era.

Resolved Question: What are some old, iconic
I know that after the cultural revolution, and ecnomic flux in china, alot of the heretage sites were done away with for the sake of modernisation. But what are some of the old buildings in china that still function today? And where is that enormous arch with the curved rooves that's recently built or being built? It looks like a pagoda with lots of layers, only it widens nearer the top?
At first the new, 'cutting edge' feats you see in places like UAE were incredible and amazing to me, but they just stop impressing me after a while. Kind of like the current Avant Gard trend in pop music.

Resolved Question: How much money do I need
My boyfriend and I are planning a 7 week backpacking trip throughout China, Vietnam and Cambodia.
Basically the first month we'll spend traveling Beijing, Pingyao, Xi'an, Chengdu, Lijiang, Guilin, Nanning (and of course the sites around these areas).
Then spend about 10 days in Vietnam, visiting Hanoi & Halong bay and then make our way to Angkor Wat in Cambodia for 3-4 days.
We'll then travel back to Hong Kong and fly home from there.
We're not planning on staying in Hostels all that much, just inexpensive hotels and eating in mostly small restaurants and street food. We'll also use the train system as our main source of travel and probably buses for shorter trips.
I was wondering what kind of budget we should aim for? I was hoping for about $4,000 USD or less, not including air fair, visas, vaccines, etc (thats about $1,500 USD). Does anyone have any idea of the cost from experience? Any advice as to how much we will spend per day, etc?
Any advice would be appreciated!
