26 hours on a Chinese sleeper train sounds like a terrible way to spend a day, and an hour. Cramped beds, no where to sit, 60 people in a carriage, no air con, no showers, dirty squatting toilets and everyone’s smell. But I would do it again and again.
Beijing is famous for the Great Wall, its 2008 Olympic park and of course it’s smog, but we had blue skies throughout! (Almost.)
I have been in mainland China for 3 days, my back is covered in love bites and I have had more selfies and free drinks than I could count.
