16 day itinerary for Yunnan/Shanghai, April / May

Hello and thanks for reading.

I am a student living in Beijing. My mom is coming and we want to do a loop starting and ending in Beijing. I need help planning the Yunnana/Shanghai part of the trip.

My plan now is:

- fly from Beijing to Yunnan; 10 days in Yunnan

- fly to Shanghai; 6 days in Shanghai, Hangzhou, Suzhou

I am accounting for a few days before and after in Beijing not shown on itinerary.

My question is how would you move through Yunnan and onto Shanghai?

What route would you take?

What would you see?

How long in each place?

Fly out of where to Shanghai?

We want to do light hiking, nature, and culture. We're not big on cities, we prefer rustic. That said, we don't want to camp or carry gear, we want to stay in nice cute guesthouses.

Any suggestions?

Please refer this for your Yunnan trip


When you finish your trip in Shangri-La,catch bus back to Lijiang for your flight to Hangzhou,then fast train to Shanghai and Suzhou.

Yulong snow mountain is a must-to-see in Yunnan and Lijiang is also a great place.
