Yo China Couchsurfers,

My friend and I are going to Xining on 23rd of July. We plan to go to Qinghai Lake, temples around there and then head over to Gansu to Mogao Caves in Dunhuang. We will be traveling between 23rd of July until 30th at the latest. It's a gorgeous route that my friends have done before.
(if you read Chinese, I am borrowing this travel route on this Chinese website. We are not joining their group, just borrowing their route

We have almost planned everything out, but we want to look for 1-4(preferably 1-2 ppl) more travel companions so we can rent a car for a cheaper price. As far as I know, the seven day trip will cost around 6500RMB to hire a driver and a 4 seats car.We plan to stay in hostels so it would cost us around 45 RMB per person max each day. We don't want to rush to many touristy sites, we just want to fully experience this silk road trip. I am painting in Sichuan from 16th until 20th. Then I will go to Chengdu to meet up with my friend on 20th and then fly to Xining on 23rd.

I am an architecture student, rising third year in University of Virginia. I am from China, and I speak Chinese and English fluently. I also speak some German and a tiny bit of Hebrew(yay). My friend is from Germany and he is working in Beijing/just finished studying Chinese in Peking Uni atm.

If you are interested, please let me know ASAP. I am calling the driver today and make sure he is available. But please add in ASAP so we can figure out which kind of car we will be using. I prefer calling better: 0086-13918045944 since I will be gone painting in Sichuan in one day and I don't think I will have internet access there. You can also email me at yl9d@virginia.edu.

Thanks guys! Happy Couch-surfing!

Y.
