Hohhot

— 5 nights
Hohhot, abbreviated Hushi, formerly known as Kweisui, is the capital of Inner Mongolia in North China, serving as the region's administrative, economic and cultural centre. Get some cultural insight at Inner Mongolia Museum and Hohhot Five-Pagoda Temple (Wuta Si). Go for a jaunt from Hohhot to Da'erhan Maoming'an Lianhe Qi to see Xilamuren Prairie about 1h 40 min away. There's still lots to do: try your luck at Inner Mongolia Racecourse, examine the collection at Geological Mineral Museum of Inner Mongolia, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Xilitu Zhao Temple, and get curious at Inner Mongolia Science and Technology Museum.

Covering most of the northern edge of China beyond the Great Wall, Inner Mongolia has scenic grasslands dotted with natural lakes, deserts, and industrial cities. Tourist attractions in Inner Mongolia include a World Heritage-listed geopark with a granite forest, ethnic villages, and museums detailing the life of nomadic tribes. Numerous lamaist temples housing exquisite bodhisattva images give insight into this autonomous region's Buddhist heritage. Certain traditions of the vast grassland empire remain alive and well: an itinerary in Inner Mongolia can include horse races, camel rides, and sand sledging, plus visits to Mongolian yurts and plenty of samples of kumis (fermented horse milk).
