    Just wanted to say thank you for this post. A month ago I decided to go to China and I wrote down the top spots I wanted to go. You nailed every one and there were some I didn’t even know existed! This will make planning my trip much easier.

    Thanks for your reply Adam! Your blog has really inspired us and we have managed to plan a trip similar to yours with a few added extras along the way. It’s been such a massive help.

    Can I ask one last question? Can you advise me on vaccinations required for travelling around China? I’m a little concerned about vaccinations required when visiting rural/remote areas.

    Thanks

    Sarah

      That’s great to hear Sarah! Unfortunately that’s not something I can help with, best to speak to your local dr.

      Good luck with your trip!

        Hi Adam –

        Our trip to China is fast approaching and I have one more question (which I hope you can help me out with)!

        We are booking trains in advance like you suggested – as well a few overnight trains – I’ve searched online about the likelihood of being placed in the same compartment as my partner on the sleeper trains. Is there any guarantee that we will be together when booking in advance or do you just choose a ‘bunk’ when you get on the train?

        Hope this makes sense!
        Thank you!!
        Sarah

          Hi Sarah

          All the seats/bunks are allocated. If you go through a company like China DIY Travel to make your booking just tell them what you want and they will seat you together. Their website is also very useful for finding out how to read train tickets etc. See https://www.china-diy-travel.com/en/

          Cheers
          Adam

    Hi Adam – my partner and I are travelling around China in the summer. I’m struggling to find alternative travel options from Kashgar to Beijing. Can you offer any advice? There doesn’t appear to be any trains and flying is a bit expensive!

    Thank you
    Sarah

      Hi Sarah, if going by train from Kashgar you will have to go via Urumqi as there are no direct trains to Beijing. But don’t rule out flights, there are often cheap fares to be had, especially if travelling from Kashgar-Urumqi-Beijing. It’s a big time-saver too!
