According to Yangtze Evening News, Li Xianfeng hopes to tour five provinces and one municipality.
He intends to visit the most historic spots and natural landscapes.
Xianfeng, a retired teacher in east China's Jiangsu province, intends to satiate his love for ancient Chinese poetry, which depict natural scenery and historic sites, with the trip.
He said: "I have had the idea in mind for years to pay a visit to these sights with my own eyes."
Xianfeng will travel across Anhui, Henan, Hubei, Hunan and Jiangxi province as well as Suqian municipality in Jiangsu province.
He added: "I did a lot of homework searching for the destinations' history, culture and tales online.
"It's a challenge for me and I want to visit more places and learn from sightseeing before I get too old." (ANI)
