Hi, im going to China at the beginning of january, and im sure its gonna be pretty cold in some areas. Do you guys suggest taking a sleeping bag or not?

I would recommend a sleeping bag. You never know when you will need it and it will keep you nice and warm! I think it's a great idea.

Hi, ruckerthe,
I do not know which part you will travel in China. If you are planning a your trip in North China, the sleeping bag is necessary. because the temperature in north China in January is very cold and the temperature will be below zero.so if you want to travel by train, you'd better take the sleeping bag.
but in south China, the weather will be comparatively warm, only a sweater is enough.
anyhow have a nice trip.;)

Been living and travelling all over China for the past 3+ years and never needed a sleeping bag anywhere. Haven't been to Tibet Autonomous Region yet though.
