Anhui attracts travelers from all over the globe, which means getting from A to B is a breeze. Be sure give yourself some time to experience the numerous scenic and cultural wonders this region offers. Examples of places in the vicinity of Chaohu are Wuhu, 30 miles (48 kilometers) to the west, and Tongling, 35 miles (56 kilometers) to the north.
Hefei is around 50 miles (80 kilometers) from Chaohu. This center offers a number of interesting attractions, like Hefei Botanical Garden, Hefei Wildlife Park and Anhui Museum. Baohe Park, Anhui Laomingguang Stadium and University of Science and Technology of China are also good places to spend time.
Maybe one of the most practical gestures you can pay to locals you'll encounter in your travels is to put in the effort of memorizing a little of their language. Why not try to pronounce "Nǐ yào bú yào gēn wǒ tiàowǔ" This means "Would you like todance with me?" "This gentleman/lady will pay for everything" is also useful, so practice pronouncing "Zhèiwèi xiānsheng huì qīngdān"
As your holiday here winds down, you'll be sure to bid the region a teary "Zàijiàn"
