Seriously...as ridiculous as this sounds...Qingdao...is amazing...simply because you can buy 2 liter bags of beer with straws in them for less than $1 USD....as well as the beaches there are so overcrowded, so between the masses of people and the drunken state of inebriation...Qingdao was a great weekend trip of mine...

you also might want to do a yangzhe river cruise......

Qingdao, brewery town eh. Haven't been there yet and don't have the time, but beer is generally ridiculously cheap everywhere in China.

I loved Inner Mongolia though. Not the biggest fan of Beijing to be honest, but the Great Wall was great - the Simatai section was fantabulous but more out of the way.

Yellow Cliff Caves in Shanxi were actually really nice too...a lot of China would be that much better if it wasn't so friggin' smoggy here.
