Questions & Answers on Great Buddha Temple Pictures
Asked by Mrs.Junck from MALAYSIA | Aug. 02, 2009 06:54Reply
Hi there - My husband & I are planning on a trip to China around 17-Sep-09. From my little bit research, I gathered that I should be taking a train from Hong Kong to Guangzhou and then to Xi'an (without spending overnight in Guangzhou). Then, we would be spending 3 nights in Xi'an before taking a train to Beijing. I have a few questions - How much does it cost to get a local tour guide in Xi'an and Beijing (for our Great Wall of China trip)? We do not speak Mandarin or Cantonese - are tour guides advisable then? I have been to Beijing several times before but my friend was living there, so I never had to travel on my own in the city.

My family and I intend to go to Xi'an on our own this June. Would 5 days be sufficient to cover the main historical sites? To minimize the need to change hotels frequently, can we just stay at one place and do the sightseeing from there? If yes, where should we base ourselves, and how should we cover the place? Thank you.

Five days is enough for visiting Xi'an. you can stay in one hotel near the city center, on the first day you can visit the warriors , the second day you can visit the city, such as the city wall, the pogoda,the museum,etc.on the 3day you can visit the mountain Hua, on the 4th day you can visit the famen temple and the Qianling mausoleum.
