Our preferred route was to fly from Harbin to Xi An, then bullet train to Beijing as Tianjin is only about 30 mins train ride away from Beijing, but the flight from Harbin to Xi An is very expensive due to the holiday season I guess. So. now, we are thinking of taking bullet train from Harbin to Beijing instead and then bullet train to Xi An, then flying from Xi An to Tianjin to catch our flight home. Anyone has any suggestions? If we don't go to Xi An, are there other province we can go visit instead that are not too far from Beijing?
This will be our first trip to China.
