By crossing the country via train you'll not only be able to visit a bunch of different cities (and Hong Kong!) in just under three weeks, but you'll also get to see the diverse landscapes that make up the world's most populous country. Stand face-to-face with the Terracotta Warriors, cycle the ancient city walls, practice Tai Chi with locals, go shopping in Shanghai, or sing your heart out in a karaoke session. If you're feeling adventurous, do it all.
