I'm going to Luoyang in april (will just miss the festival :( ).
This is my itinerary:
* evening - train pickup - hotel
* day 1: Hotel - Shoalin Monastery - Hotel
* day 2: Hotel - Longmen grottoes - take 18:28 train to Xian from Luoyang Longmen
What would be the best, but not too expensive, way to do this?
I see driver prices for 800RMB/day, which is a bit too expensive for me to be honest.
But I don't mind spending a few hundred a day for decent transport if necessary.
Or should I stick to public transport (but probably very crowded?)
Anybody got any tips?
