Packs everything in, but you'll want another day!

Our guide Esther was lovely and very helpful. It was great to have someone help us with lunch and travel arrangements which we would not have been able to do well alone! The glass bridge is fun for a photoshoot, but if you're not looking to get those photos then you might prefer to spend your time in the parks rather than travel and queue for this. Really cloudy weather when we went which was amazing - no idea where the sky or ground were on Tianmen! All tickets and lunch were included saving us a lot of hassle!
