It has taken me almost two years, but I have finally finished uploading the photographs I took on my 2013 trip to China.

I spent a week on the 'mainland' visiting the cities of Shanghai, Beijing and Xi'an:

  • Day 1: arrive into Shanghai from Melbourne, riding the Maglev from Pudong Airport, and checking out The Bund.
  • Day 2: Visiting Pudong, riding the Shanghai Metro, inspecting the rubber-tyred Translor tram, and watching mainline trains at Shanghai Railway Station.
  • Day 3: Shanghai to Beijing by high-speed train, and exploring the Beijing Metro
  • Day 4: Template of Heaven.
  • Day 5: Summer Palace.
  • Day 6: visiting the Great Wall of China, travelling there and back by train.
  • Day 7: Tiananmen Square, Forbidden City, and the Beijing Railway Museum.
  • Day 8: Beijing to Xi'an by high-speed train.
  • Day 9: Terracotta Warriors, watching trains at Xi'an Railway Station, and exploring the Xi'an Metro.
  • Day 10: flight from Xi'an to Hong Kong.
