Travelling to China from Poland is not an easy thing, and when you decide to plan a trip to China, we suggest you spend 10-15 days in China, if it is within the limit of your budget, because China has so many beautiful places for you to see. And another reason is that most of you won't travel often to China, therefore you should cherish this China tour and see more places.
Visiting a place, you need at least 2 days, and 2 days are only for a short tour. If you want to visit 4 places or more, you need over 11 days. If you are travelling on your own, you may need more days, because you are likely to take public transportation.
Usually speaking, you could visit Beijing for 3 days, 2 days in Xian( 4 days in Xian including Mount Huashan), 3 days in Zhangjiajie, 3 days in Guilin, 2 days in Chengdu(4 days in Chengdu including Jiuzhai Valley), 5 days for Yangzte River Cruise, and 2 days in Shanghai. But it is not always the case. You could spend another 1-2 days, or even more in a place that you are very interested.
Here are some China tour itineraries for your reference to decide how many days to stay in China:
