                            Top Descriptions

                            Famous for Tsingtao beer, fresh seafood, and for being one of the cleanest and prettiest cities in , Qingdao in Shandong province makes for a coastal city worth visiting – especially in the warmer months when you can take advantage of the many beaches on offer here. This city did win an award for being ‘most liveable’ in back in 2012, and it’s not hard to see why. This is a large city though, and some attractions are quite spread out, so make sure you come with plenty of time to spare, particularly if you’re looking to hike in nearby . Many restaurants here also do not cater too well for an English-speaking clientele, so be prepared to have to sometimes go on the hunt.

                                        Unless you’re living in Harbin, you’ll most likely be visiting this northern city in Heilongjiang at some point during the bitterly cold winter months. And you’ll be visiting no doubt for the excellent and snow and ice festivals which are held here every year. While these world-class attractions might be a little ways outside of the city centre, there’s still plenty to keep you occupied downtown for a few days at least. Whether it’s the fascinating mix of Chinese/Russian architecture and food, the bustling and fairly well facilitated shopping streets, or simply the deep winter feel of it all, you’ll no doubt find yourself amply occupied here – unless you’re not a fan of the cold! As with many parts of northern , understand that Harbin isn’t the cleanest of cities (although this doesn’t become too apparent until the roads begin to thaw) and facilities such as hotels and restaurants are somewhat dated too.

                                        Top Tips

                                        There are a few snow and ice festivals on offer, but the two biggest and most famous are the and the zones. The sites for both of these are quite large and are both over the , so consider visiting them on separate days. Also come well prepared if you’re walking there as it can be as cold as -30 to -40 Celsius.
                                        If you’re visiting when everything’s frozen, watch out for those odd warmer days. The snow and ice will thaw and refreeze smoothly, creating a city-wide ice rink that for the unsteady or unstable can prove a real difficulty. For those that are good at ice skating though, it can be quite fun!
                                        Think twice before you visit the . Although there might be some good reviews of it online, this is more a petting zoo than conservation area. It’s also not the safest of attractions, and some believe that the tigers are sold off here for parts in Chinese medicine.

                                                    Tourists don’t really visit Datong for the city itself. Though some serious reconstruction is going on, many areas are still not particularly pedestrian friendly – and some areas of the city, especially near to the ancient , have looked particularly reminiscent of a bomb site for some time. Nevertheless, the attractions that do draw tourists here, such as the and the Hanging Temple are certainly impressive and well worth the journey. Most of these attractions are in the caves and mountains that surround Datong and take a little effort to get to, but as long as you stay close to train or bus stations you shouldn’t have much trouble getting about.

                                                    Top Tips

                                                    Don’t expect too much on offer in Datong in terms of dining. There are some good restaurants here, particularly if you like hot pots, but these can be spread out across quite large distances. Do some research online before heading out to eat, perhaps.
                                                    It can get very cold here in the winter, so do prepare if you’ll be travelling here in or around that season.
                                                    Don’t miss out on the while you’re here, whatever you do. There are hundreds of well preserved Buddhist carvings in these caves just outside of the city.
