Hi

Me and my boyfriend are most likely going to be on this trip. We haven't booked yet though as we are still a little dubious about the weather - humidity and rain!

Have you done a trip like this before?

Hi Jules,

No, I have not taken a trip quite like this before. But I've been meaning to see China for some time now, and this seems like the best option and timing for me.

As for the weather, I think the worst of the rainy season is July-early Aug, but it will still be very hot and humid. I won't mind, because I hate cold weather and I'm used to wet/grey and often cool summers.

Hi Devin

We are all booked on to do this now! Really looking forward to it. It's something that we have been wanting to do for a while and due to work commitments this is really the only time we can go.

Fingers crossed for the weather! I'm used to wet/grey and cool summers too......I'm from the UK after all!

Good to see that it's filling up...

I'll arrive in Beijing on the 18th at 2pm local, which is really weird since I'll depart at 1pm the day before. I wish I could arrive a day early to make sure I see Yiheyuan and Xiangshan (Summer Palace and Fragrant Hills), but at least I'll be staying an extra day in HK (I may even go to Ocean Park or Disneyland if the weather is nice).

Got my tetanus and Hep A shots today, and will apply for a visa on Wednesday. Almost ready!
