Subject: China travel
Dear Mei-Ching, I would caution your family to try to see the major cities of China while trying to include a trip to the Yangtze Gorge. That would be like trying to see the major cities in the US and throw in a 3-day trip down the Mississippi. Maybe a better suggestion would be to visit one major city (Beijing?), take a couple of side trips (Xian, Guilin?) and then the Yangtze Gorge cruise. Each location has good tour guides and can be easily arranged through hotels (if you decide to go to Xian, I can recommend a very good guide). China is a wonderful destination and I know they will have a good time. Best regards, Bob Beijing, China
