Good place to stop between Kunming and Shanghai?

Hi guys

Going to China for 3 weeks in the summer. We are travelling from Kunming to Shanghai by train and want to stop somewhere in the middle ish.

Any suggestions for fun cities, mountains etc we can spend a night or two?

Thanks!

Possibly take the overnight sleeper train K80 to Huaihua arriving in the morning and from there get to Fenghuang which is not too far. Then maybe bus up to Zhangjiajie.

You can also consider travelling from Kunming to Guilin, or Hangzhou or Jiaxing South Station (for Xitang water town) along your rail route to Shanghai

Both Hangzhou and Jiaxing are well over half way - almost into Shanghai.

Thank you guys! Agree with Mike, might be a bit far.

I have previously been to Guilin, so might pass on that this time.

Perhaps it is better to just fly over.
