Hohhot – The city
Hohhot is the capital of the province of Inner Mongolia and an interesting mix of Chinese and Mongolian culture. Evidence of the area’s rich history and its connection to Genghis Khan can be seen everywhere. Hohhot's size means that it offers a wide range of amenities without feeling overcrowded and makes it possible to travel everywhere by bike or cheap green taxis.
Surrounded by grasslands, the air quality is also very good. The city itself is located on a plateau about 400km west of Beijing and has its own international airport. Hohhot's location makes it the ideal place to come if you wish to experience the 'real' China, that of a developing country in transition, while at the same time being within touching distance of the metropolis of Beijing.
Hohhot is dry and sometimes windy. Summers are pleasantly warm and can get quite hot, with temperatures from June until the end of September averaging about 20oC. You can go from wearing shorts and enjoying an ice-cream in the summer to ice-skaking on the frozen lake in the park in winter.
Hohhot boasts an excellent range of restaurants, mixing the Chinese with the Mongolian and a teacher's salary is comfortably enough to eat out every night. Aside from the themed Mongolian restaurants, Hotpot restaurants and seasonal summer barbecues, there are restaurants offering cuisine from every part of China. There are also a number of hotels offering all-you-can-eat buffet meals, which cook a fantastic mix of Western and Oriental food. Even at the 5 star Shangri-La hotel, this comes to a very reasonable 148RMB (13GBP/22USD) a head.
Hohhot offers all the amenities of a similarly sized western city. Hohhot has a number of large Western style shopping malls and countless shops. There are also a number of both indoor and outdoor markets, where it's possible to haggle for a huge range of items. The city also benefits from its close proximity to the grassland and is the location of Zhao Jun Tomb, the burial site of Wang Zhao Jun, one of the famed Four Beauties of ancient China.
