Hello everyone,
I am going to visit Beijing and Shanghai for my vacation from 6/15/14-7/8/14 this summer. Knowing the pollution is very bad in urban areas in China, I do want to avoid these places. Can anyone list a any tourist attractions within 200km of each of these cities? I have been to these cities in the past so please do not list mainstream attractions, such as the Great Wall of China. Comments are appreciated.

You're not worried about eating the food over there? In a recent Economist magazine article on Emigrants from China, one of the reasons listed for their relocating to another part of the world was safer food to eat!

I wish I could do my 3 Chinese trips all over again, and skip the big cities and do rural areas instead, but from what I've read, decent lodgings are not easy to come by in the rural areas.

I'm sure there are many overlooked areas of China to visit, as in my latter stages of foreign travel, in Latin America, I bypassed the big cities and only traveled to the rural areas, but fortunately, even in the smaller cities, I was able to find some decent lodgings and food.

Have a nice trip, after doing some thorough research!
