Here are my suggestions for day trips from Shanghai, from the lovely gardens of Suzhou and the lakes in Hangzhou, to the must-see Sex Museum in Tongli.
Have you ever gone caving in China? The interesting Silver Fox Cave just outside of Beijing is worth checking out.
The CCTV Headquarters in Beijing remains largely unoccupied even three years after its completion.
The Terminal 3 of Beijing Capital International Airport is truly amazing, with its huge space and awe-inspiring architecture. Its strategically-placed structures draw your eyes upwards, giving you a feeling of being under a star-filled sky.
Declared a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1998, the Summer Palace in Beijing, China is an impressive “garden” with a number of bridges, pagodas, temples, pavilions, and other beautiful structures that work in complete harmony.
Go on a day trip from Beijing and marvel at a desert seemingly dropped out of nowhere. The Tianmo Desert is only around two hours from the city.
If you are in Shanghai and have a bit of time, don’t miss going to Tongli, just 2 hours away. This small, water town is so charming and serene you won’t want to leave. China’s Sex Museum is here too!
