Which city will you arrive first? You may think about a high speed one from Xi'an to Pingyao first and then an overnight trip to Luoyang.
Answered by Buntoon W from THAILAND | Jun. 01, 2016 03:49

I plan to first fly to Beijing from Bangkok, and travel by speed train to visit each city. How should I do it? Do you have any suggestion as to which city to go first, for how many days for each city in order to appreciate the city well? How about hotel, are there 5 star hotels in each city?

Do you have a tour frequently organized that I may join?
Answered by Harrison | Jun. 01, 2016 20:27

If you depart from Beijing and back there as well, the trip can be supported by all high speed ride. You may try to go for Pingyao first and then to Xi'an and finally to Luoyang. There are good hotels in all these cities. You can check details on hotel booking website or a booking agent.
