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.

Dear Andy Tan, Some of the scenic spots are far from the down town, so it is not easy to quote to you at present. Could you please let me know which spots you would like to visit? In addition, our driver will serve you about 8 hours per day, there is an extra fee if you would let him serve you more time. Our driver only speak Chinese, if you don't speak Chinese, we need to arrange an English speaking guide for you. Please feel free to let me know the details. My e-mail is lussie@chinahighlights.net

Dear kamthin, There are two buses from Xian to Hukou, it sets off at 8:00am and 13:20pm from Chengdong bus station(城东客运站). It costs about CNY110/US$18 and it takes about 5 hours. It is too tight to go back to Xian on the same day. The bus from Hukou to Xian sets off at 7:40am and 13:00pm at the gate of scenic spot.

Dear Mark, Guoliang village is located at remore area. You could take a train from Zhengzhou to Xinxiang(新乡)(around one hour), then rent a van near Xinxiang train station to go to Guoliang village directly(around two hours). It costs about CNY150/US$24 for rental. After visiting, you could take a train from Xinxiang to Xian. There are some high speed trains. It takes about 2.5 to 3 hours. You could search the time schedule and book train tickets on our website. Click: http://www.chinahighlights.com/china-trains/

Based on the former data, the temperature ranged from 10℃ to 20℃, it is cool. To avoid being wet and cold, you'll need warm clothing such as a jacket and sweater for cool temperatures and rain gear such as an umbrella.
