Our guide recommended Shilin over Paiyonlou as we are told the rooms are larger and cleaner. Shilin was a comfortable stay on the mountain. The double room was very small so you might consider opting for the twin room which is slightly larger and has a small balcony.
Zero English. Meals were OK but nothing special.

... on a tour of two historical villages, Honcun and Xidi. We thought it was just a hostel run tour so were pretty surprised when a massive coach full of 50 something chinese tourists pulled up, complete with a tour guide who spoke for pretty much the whole hour long journey I think without breathing. Once we got to the villages however we were allowed to wander off on our own. Both villages were ...
At 4.50am we set off up the mountain to see the sunrise at 6am. It's about a 40 minute hike up quite a steep slope with many many stairs and it's pitch black! We told Ada to have a sleep in so we went alone.........well we were alone except for a few hundred others, mainly Chinese. They did have torches however so they were quite handy to stay near. By the time we reached the top, the mist was so thick you couldn't ...

The actual hike itself is not as tough as Huashan Mountain, the stairs are less steep and much less scary, despite this though I'm still out of breath and sweating like crazy, guess my fitness level still needs to improve a bit but it sure is fun to be hiking again especially on such a beautiful ...
Today is all about travel. Getting from one city to the other. After breakfast we went to go outside but it's really raining heavily so that's a no go. Our guide arrives to take us to the airport for our flight to Tunxi. This airport is closer than Pudong but there is still a fair bit of traffic and the weaving in and out is like a slow dance. Our guide gets us to the check in counter and that's his job done. We have a couple of hours to ...
Today is a nice and easy day, I sleep in a little bit before I go to buy my bus ticket for the afternoon. Just my luck that the ticket machine is broken but it's not that big of a deal as the hostel reception tell me that I can get bus tickets on the day at the bus station, which was good, it just meant I had to leave earlier than planned. I go one last time to my street food place to grab some funky bread for breakfast but it's not that great so I go back to the hostel and ...
