How to Do China in 12 Days
by Wendy Perrin
A question came in from Conde Nast Traveler reader Phyllis Nova:
"I enjoyed your China Iconic Itinerary in the March issue. Lots of good info. I'm interested in your bonus trip to Xi'an but can't seem to access it online. Please inform how to get it. Thank you."
So sorry about the delay in getting my Xi'an recommendations onto cntraveler.com. (I've been busy!) They're there now.
Yes, folks, my hard-won China advice, based on that backbreaking Operation China recon mission you may remember from October/November, is now on the newsstands. The article is a step-by-step 12-day itinerary for travelers who want a smart combo of China's highlights as well as its off-the-beaten-path gems. Should you opt to read it online, BE SURE to read the PDF version, since this contains all manner of vital advice and cautions that are NOT in the non-PDF version!
By the way, Conde Nast Traveler has also designed and test-driven step-by-step Iconic Itineraries for Russia (I wrote that one too), Machu Picchu and the Amazon (which Brook wrote), Southeast Asia, India, and Egypt. To read the PDF versions, click on "Print the Whole Story + Maps" (which you'll find inside the box entitled "Online Extras"). Enjoy!
