My husband and I have booked a trip to bejing, xian, tibetand river cruise. unfortunately we arrive on Oct 1, 2014. I am concerned about the crowds and our ability to enjoy the sites in the city and tombs. At the time of booking Viking cruises did not tell us that this is a major holiday and extremely busy. We will be visiting from the US and this was to be a trip of lifetime. Do you recommend that we reschedule our trip for a later date despite the extra costs for making these airline and tour company changes?

Dear Sandra Terwillegar, In fact,there are lots of tourist in the scenic spots, because from Oct. 1 to Oct. 7 it is Chinese National Holiday. You could spend long time to join the queue for tickets. It also might affect you to take some good photos. If you could, I suggest you change your travel time.

My flight from Beijing to Tokyo on Sunday will be at 16:40. When should I be at the airport? Will 2 hours ahead be long enough? I will take the Airport Shuttle from Beijing Railway Station. When should I take the Airport Shuttle? How long is the bus ride from Beijing Railway Station to Beijing Capital Airport?

Dear Henry, I suggest you arrive at the airport 3 hours before departure time as you will take an International flight. It takes about one hour by shuttle bus from Beijing railway station to the airport, thus you could take a shuttle bus around 10:40am.

Am traveling to Beijing next week for business. Many of the meals will be provided, but I will be on my own for breakfasts and some meals, including "snacks." I am from the U.S. -- how much US money should I bring, and exchange for China currency at the airport (sightseeing provided by my hosts)? Or do you recommend exchanging before arrival? Thank you!

Dear Larry Brooks, Here are some information for reference as below, I hope it is useful for you. Exchanging Money: Changing Money can be done in a number of ways. Most hotels will have a foreign exchange service and will exchange cash and travelers' checks. As with hotels everywhere, the exchange rate will not be the official bank rate. Most large banks will exchange money and travelers' checks. It is a requirement that you present your passport to complete the transaction. Banks will only accept foreign bank notes that are undamaged. Notes that are even slightly torn will be rejected. Travelers' Checks can be a secure solution if traveling for a longer time. Cash withdrawals from Visa and MasterCard: Credit/debit card can not be used everywhere in China, so it's wise to carry CNY800-1000 cash with you everyday. It would be quite enough for you to cover the cost that’s not included in the tour. Credit/debit card are possible at the main branches of the Bank of China in each city. A small fee is charged by the Bank and charges are also applied by the bank/credit card provider. Bank of China ATM machines, which are widely used in China, are compatible with Cirrus and Pulse so cash withdrawals are easy to complete using these machines. Only use ATM's that display the Visa and MasterCard symbols. An English menu will appear when you insert your card. The exchange rate that is applicable through ATM's is good and this can be a very convenient way to organize your money. Locations for ATM's are available from your card issuer. Limits for withdrawals on each transaction differ but US$250 per transaction is common.
