I'm thinking about going on the 'Journey across China' but have some questions about it.
1. Can I skip the hike in the tiger leaping gorge? I am terribly scared of heights and I don't want to bother the other travelers. Besides, it would be no fun for me at all.
2. Is there another way to see the places that you advice to go to by bike? I cannot ride a bike.
3. I also want to see Shanghai. Is there a direct flight from Lijiang to Shanghai? If not, a direct train perhaps? How long would it take and what would the price be?
