Topic From: Beijing Weather in December
Hello and thank you for your advice. I would like to know how are the conditions on the train from beijing to lhasa. How are the sleeping cabins. I have been reading some blogs and i am not pleased with that they have to say. The bathrooms are atrocious and the staff is not friendly. I will be traveling with my best friend who is deaf so i hope we will not have any problems. And the taxi situation is no better. One guy said the driver would not relinquish his luggage unless he paid like 3x the fair ughhhh. We booked this tour from dec 17-22 for lhasa. Thank you for any advice you can provide.
Actually on the train，the facility is simple. You need to share the bathroom with ohter passengers. There are four soft beds in a compartment and six hard beds in a compartment. The staff on the train can speak Chinese, Tibetan language and simple English.
As it is expensive to buy the food on the train and at the train station, I suggest you'd better prepare some snacks and pure water.
By the way, I would like to remind you should apply for a Tibet permit before travelling to Tibet. Wish you a good trip!

Topic From: Beijing Weather in February
Hello there, I am planning to visit Beijing with my wife and young kids from 3 - 7 Feb 2013, mainly to witness the Chinese New Year celebration, however, being in China and not to visit the Great China wall is same as being in France and not seen Eifell tower. However, my concern is that since I am travelling with young kids (the youngest one is 1 and half year and elder one is 6 1/2), would it be advicable to visit during this time, without being worried about any serious threat that weather can put to me and my family? Please give me an honest ''advice'', thanks.
Thank you for your tour inquiry ,It will be good time to visit Beiijng in the New year time , there are a lot of nice decorations on the street and new year celebrations, you will watch the fire crackers play in the evening , it will be more fun than normal time.
It is no problem for you and young kids to travel to the Great wall, you can take the cable car up and down, but the weather will be quite cold. the temprature can drop to -5degrees, please bring your warm coats , warm gloves and hats with you.
I can arrang the New year Beijing tour for you, please advise.
