About:Mount Taishan (Tai Shan)

We are a family (3 kids) travelling around the world for 14 month. We plan to come with a train from Beijing, climb the mountain with a cable or a bus (do you know the prices? What is better) and then continue with a night train to Nanjing.

1. Do you think one day on the mountain is enough?

2. We have tons of luggage. We can:
a. Take a day train (for example D31), sleep in the city, climb next day and then catch the night train K101/K104 to Nanjing.
b. Take a night train from Beijing (for example K101/K104), get rid of the luggage, climb, (Sleep one night on the mountain?), get down and catch train K101/K104 to Nanjing.
What do you think is better?

3. Anything else to see or do in Tai'an? You wrote in another place that there is nothing to see there, but it is a big city..

4. Anything else nearby before we continue to Nanajing (we already visited Jinan).

The ticket fare of Tianwaicun-Zhongtianmen tourism bus is CNY30 for a single way, and the bus ticket fare is the same from Taohuayu to Taohuayuan. The cable car ticket of Zhongtianmen-Taohuayuan is CNY80 for a single way and CNy140 for a round-way.
1. I think one day is enough for a Taishan Mountain trip.
2. personally, I prefer plan A, since you'd better sleep a night in Tai'an City to have a good rest, so that you have enough energy and strength to climb the mountain the next day.
3. Tai'an is a small city in fact. Other attractions in Tai'an are Dai Temple, Dongping Lake and Lashan National Forest Park.
4. I think you can also spend 1-2 days in Qingdao or Qufu.
