  • I took part in the tour, so I went to the destination smoothly by the Chitterbus. There is usually a lot of waiting time because of the bus line. I was able to do sightseeing by reversing the excursion course by guidance of a local guide and avoiding crowding. I recommend the shoes which are easy to walk up the stairs and walk up to 18,000 steps. The scenery was magnificent and continued even more than I imagined.

  • When the Japan was GW10, it was expected that China would suddenly be crowded with the four consecutive holidays in May. So I bought a ticket at the hotel the day before and was at the gate at seven, and at around 7:30 I took a bus and moved early. By the way, it was only around one day. I acted early, and the cable car is without waiting, but a few persons, but a charter with a name. The cable car was great. The person increased gradually, and the bus was full when moving, but it was not in the elevator again, and it was possible to the monorail, and it was able to sightseeing smoothly. However, I forgot the map to the hotel, so I moved to see the map of the Japanese in the smartphone, it was also difficult to ask questions. If you have a map, you can ask a question of which bus is required. Because there is a person, it is serious when riding suitably because the bus heads here and there. If I roll to think about the route properly, I would have roll roughly in a day. The rock formations are so amazing.

  • I have 10 people planning to visit the park to all the important points. Huangshizhai-Jinbianxi-Bailong Elevator-Yuanjiajie-Yangjiajie-Tianzishan-10 Miles Gallery and choose to sleep in the park to there is no need to pay up-down, many rounds, with a stay in line. The Shentangwan bus stop named Xianju Inn and the hotel is located another 2-3 place where all the restaurants are built in. Don't be afraid, just don't be Shopping like a Wulingyuan city. The front of the hotel is the Panorama View Tianzishan watching the sunrise.
