I spent a month in China in 2003. Much of what I saw will stay with me for the rest of my life.

Did you visit the Humble Administrator´s Garden? Offhand, I can´t remember where it is, but then I´m travelling again at the moment (La Serena in Chile, but I´ll be back in dear old Blighty in a week) so I don´t have the referebces to hand. It´s one of the greatest places on the planet, IMHO.

i first went to china last year for a couple of weeks travel around beijing and shandong. had an amazing time. i now live in south china, close to hong kong and macau, been here for 4 months. the reality of china is far removed from what we experience as 'tourists' and i have mixed views about the place these days, a real love hate thing. i am both amazed and horrified by the things i see here everyday. china is changing quickly, perhaps too quickly for its own good. i reccomend getting here as soon as possible before it changes too much, just dont stay for too long!

I remember when i was on the cruise the staff were always friendly but were never allowed to have a drink with you and there was always an internal police officer on duty to make sure that they didnt get to mingle..

Bags and rooms were also checked when we went off the boat to go places in Chongqing and the Ghost City.

I've had conflicting reports about what type of weather to expect in Beijing and Xian in November I'd appreciate hearing from someone who has been to these places at that time. Thanks.

I just returned from 1 1/2 weeks. A whirlwind tour with 50 teenage musicians - we all had a great time. Shanghai, Beijing, Shijiazhuang and Xian. I wasn't surprised by the pollution, the skies were always clear, but never blue. The food was good. The guides were thorough. The hotels very comfortable.

I really enjoyed the atmosphere (not the air), and I would return on my own without the confines and constrictions of a guided tour.

We were welcomed at every place we went, including three schools.

The weather was very confortable, mid March. Only rained the first day in Shanghai, the temperature never exceeded about 20 degree Celcius. We wore our school jacket most of the time.

ive been to beijing in november, it can be a bit chilly at night but the days are pretty clear and crisp, blue skies etc. I think its the best time of the year to go, far less busy too.

ive been to xian too, but not in november but i think its pretty similar to beijing.
