|Nanjing > Huangshan > Shanghai in July 2010|
|Mar 25, 2010 08:39|
|I will be visiting Shanghai in June/July to attend Shanghai 2010. After that I plan to go to Nanjing for a few (two or three) days.|
After Nanjing I will have a few free days (maybe 6 through 10 July, inclusive) and I would like to go from Nanjing to Huangshan and then on to Shanghai. I want to be back in Shanghai on or before the evening of 10 July because I am flying to Beijing on 11 July.
Any suggestions re: Nanjing > Huangshan > Shanghai in, say, 5 days?
I am a 68 year old man who is, generally, accustomed to good three or, usually, four star hotels in China. I will, probably take the cable car up to the top of Huangshan unless the walk is not too steep and unless I have a companion with whom to do it.
What is/are the best mode(s) of travel? Where should I stay in Huangshan?
Any suggestions would be most appreciated.

|I usually recommend 1 night in the summit area. If you're feeling rich (or have other reasons to do so) then you could stay an extra night.|
Be warned that Huangshan hotels will not be as good (by far) as what you can expect of 4-star hotels in major cities like Shanghai and Beijing. They're somewhat between 2 and 3-star standard going by Shanghai standards, but they still cost a pretty penny. Avoid staying on Fri/Sat nights as that's the most expensive.
Nanjing -- (bus) -- Huangshan -- (bus/overnight train/flight) -- Shanghai will work.
If you have extra days in the area you could consider visiting the Hui-style villages nearby such as Xidi and Hongcun. If you can venture a bit further for less commercialised options (and also much less English-speaking-friendly) you could go to Wuyuan county in Jiangxi province, also Hui-style villages as this used to be historically part of the same "country".
