Normally, there are two kinds of preferences for the first-timers to visit Inner Mongolia. Some would start their tour from Hohhot, the capital of this region, and spend 3~5 days to take classic Inner Mongolia tours. While some would head to Hulunbuir on the northeastern most and spend 5 days or so to explore China's largest and most beautiful grassland, wetland and forest and sample the border flavor of three countries - China, Russia and Mongolia.
During the classic Inner Mongolia tours, visitors spend 3~4 days to savor the highlights in Hohhot and visit nearby Huitengxile Grassland or Xilamuren Grassland. Huitengxile is recommended for those prefer the picturesque vista, while Xilamuren is recommended for those keen much on the grassland activities and nomadic traditions.
If you have one day more, please don't hesitate to add Kubuqi Desert, a paradise for desert hikers and lovers, into your trip.
