    My aunt and nieces raved about the shoe shopping in Guangzhou when they in China last year. That's all the first hand info I have icon_neutral.gif

    That and my uncle very illegally pried a loose brick from The Great Wall and smuggled it in my niece's backpack >_>;

    Oh yeah they also didn't like Beijing for some reason.

    Hong Kong for shopping!

    In India go see the Taj Mahal. Go to Goa, Darjeeling, Hampi, Varanassi, Jaisalmer, and the whole of Rajashthan.

    I didn't really like Mumbai or New Delhi.

    Sorry I know you wanted to know more about China but I just went to HK it's pretty awesome though!

    LOL at the smuggling brick!

    Well Hong Kong is good for shopping in the bargaining area only! Lower your asking price to about 25% of the price they are selling! Don't go to the fancy shopping mall, wasted money. I would recommend Shanghai, it was fun when I went 6 years ago. Tibet if you're into China's buddhism.

    Hong Kong is a big shopping center you ever seeicon_lol.gif
    It is a small Island and I live in there.
    Also I don't think you want to go to the China mainland,
    there are so many pollution problems and fake food.
    If you want see the ancient civilizations of China,
    Japan would be your best choice because the Chinese communist destroyed a lot of historical sites, and re-build some fake in these years for money makingicon_neutral.gif

    Hope it can help youicon_razz.gif

    Depends on your purpose.

    All cities are similar to some extent.

    The obvious, big ones would be Beijing, Shanghai, and Hong Kong. No shortage of things to do in any of those.

    However, I'll be living in Shanghai for just under 5 months and I'm most excited to fly to Chengdu in Sichuan province. It's great if you're looking for a place that isn't obvious and will give you an opportunity to do something that few people ever get to do. It's a city of about 12-15 million in central China and it's the only place you can hug and pet a baby Panda while it sits on your lap. And if you like spicy food, they have arguably the hottest, best, and most well known in the world.

    I think you should replace China with Thailand (Bangkok, Chiang Mai) or Cambodia (Angkor Wat) but if China is a must then Hong Kong, Great Wall, Shanghai.

    China's pretty sweet! Definitely try Beijing, Hong Kong, and Shanghai, and Xian if you have the time. Nights there are really beautiful, go to the street markets! XD

    Beijing is an obvious choice. The Forbidden City, Tianmen Square, Mao's body, The Great Wall, Summer Palace are all massive tour attractions, and for good reason. But don't forget the small things... Getting lost for hours in the Hutongs, people watching, and trying that questionable street food are also all part of the experience.

    I don't know how long you will be there... Xian has the Terracotta soldiers, but if you're short on time, Beijing has something similar, they are just much smaller. Shanghai and Hong Kong are fun international cities... but they have far fewer cultural attractions. If you are looking for mountains, Guilin, Lijiang, and Zhangjiajie (my second hometown) are all gorgeous. Suzhou has been described as the Venice of China. As another RJer mentioned, in Chengdu you can hold a Panda... I could go on and on. It really depends on how long you stay and what you are interested in.

    Watch this video to learn a little about Chinese culture before you go: http://www.tudou.com/programs/view/AZbvpZ847-A/

    Hope this helps. Have an incredible journey, wherever you are, wherever you go

    Split your time between Hong Kong and Shanghai, but only go to Beijing if you've got to see the Wall and Forbidden City (and don't mind the cold). In Shanghai you must see the Bund, the French Concession, the World Financial Center, and the only Mag=Lev train. In Hong Kong see the Peak, The Peninsula Hotel, and just wander around central.
