Great photos !!!
Thanks for posting.

We're thinking of planning a trip to China, though not quite as extensive as your.

What would it be like in mid to late May in Shanghai, Xian and Beijing?

Wonderful photos!

Myer: The best month is October but May is comparable.

Gorgeous photos! Thank you for sharing.

I love reading the trip reports but it's really the photos that make me excited to visit places. I can't wait until December when I get to visit Beijing and Xi'an and your pictures just made me even more excited for my trip! I want to blow off work and just go NOW!

How was the weather at that time of year? We are going with Viking next March/April. Not quite sure how to pack.

Loved your photos.

Your pictures are great and I am now wishing the summer away in anticipation for our own departure date. I noticed on your link that you hired a driver to take you to Datong. Was this from Pingyao? How much did it cost? We are looking at different ways to get from Datong to Taiyuan and I am wondering what we could roughly expect to pay for a driver. Also how did you find a driver (referred, through the hotel, etc)?

Thanks again for the great photos!

I'm sorry that I haven't replied to questions. I've been hanging out in the Europe forum looking for advice on Ireland and Scotland.

h2otstr: the weather was comfortable. Sometimes a bit chilly even. We we able to layer clothes. We have friends that went in July and they suffered with the heat. The only real rain we encountered was near Guilin.

Ladouca: Including a very expensive golf diversion and souvenirs, and not including airfare or visa, it was about $7,000 for 2.
