Wow I thought this thread would be dead...glad to see all of you still checking in, this thread has been so helpful! I am leaving March 19 on a little different tour than most. Back to Ancient Capitals of China 18 day. We board the Yangtze in Wuhan (no Three Gorges) 4 nights ending our cruise in Shanghai. Don't hear much about that part of the Yangtze we are going to Yellow Mountain. We have 1 internal flight and 3 high speed train rides.
I'm most concerned about weather...how cool it will be? Glad to hear buses aren't packed. This was a TZ special that I booked in August.
Getting excited my visas are on the way!
