you should go by yourself nada :)

Ive always wanted to go there as well, but none of my friends could afford it or find the time to do it, so now I`ve decided to go alone.

It sounds a bit scary, but I think it will be great!

I'm a little too scared to go on my own! Especially in china because of the language!

I'm sure you'll have a wonderful time, hope it all goes well! You might even inspire me :)

HI there,
I`m carlo. Can see my profile here, my user name is chatwin. To say in brief: I have been in China lots of times and can also speak mandarin quite fluently. I am currently in Kunming, for one month holiday, and live at the local Yunda university as my purpose of getting back in china is not just to travel, but to practise chinese. When are you planning your trip? unfortunately I gotta come back in italy by the beginning of november, so would like to see if timing can match

Hi, I'm John

I'm heading to China either on the 28 Dec or 3 Jan, starting off in HK and finishing at Beijing. In between isn't set in stone though I'm looking to do the likes of, Yanshuo, Gullin, Shanghai and Xi-an, though I'm still seeking advice and ideas.

If are paths cross, let me know
