China has many vibrant cities. Have being to #1 Shanghai and #2 Beijing which I would rate as world cities. The other top ten major cities that I have been to are #3 Shenzen, # 4 Guangzhou, #6 Nanjing and #7 Hangzhou.

You can stay in 5 star hotels, fine dining, go to a concert, excellent taxi and great choice of night life. Or you can visit the historic temples and sites, see acrobatic performance, a local zoo (Shanghai, Beijing, Guangzhou, Hangzhou) or get a traditional foot massaage.

The other remaining top ten cities that I have yet to visit are #5 Tianjin, #8 Dalian, #9 Shenyang and #10 Harbin.

Other cities and towns in my visited list are Xian, Suzhou, Xiamen, Guilin, villages of Tunxi, Xidi and Hongcun(Anhwei) and the towns of Zhaoqing, Chaozhou, Shantou, Meixian, Foshan, Dongguan and Zhuhai(Guangdong).

For a first visit, either Beijing or Shanghai. Recommend Shenzen or Guangzhou if you are visiting Hong Kong.
