    Dear Ted,

    Thanks so much for contacting us.

    If you will go from Guangzhou, I would recommend you to fly to Taiyuan, then proceed to Pingyao for a 1-2 days' visit. After that, you can take a speed train to Xian (2h50min). From Xian to Chonqging, you can choose to fly or take overnight train (12 h). At the end, there is a speed train from Yichang to Guangzhou, which departs in the morning, taking about 7 hours.

    For more details, our professional travel consultant will be in touch with you soon.

    Have a nice day there!

I have no idea of how many minority villages I have visited in the mountains of Southwestern China. But I still feel the urge to explore more unknown areas.
