We are young, fit, Mandarin-speaking couple looking for a nice getaway from the city. quick questions:
arrive Tunxi 15:00 from Shanghai
visit Hongcun in the afternoon
Stay overnight in Tunxi or Tangkou (which is better?)
get early cable car Yuping or Taiping (which is more scenic on the way up?)
hike for 5-6 hours
take late afternoon cable car down
dinner in Tunxi
22:30 flight back to Shanghai
Which cable car/hikes would be most scenic and less crowded to do?
Would you say that sunset on the mountain is a must-see? (I can possibly extend the trip by one night if it is worthwhile).
