I am planning on backpacking in China and Taiwan for approximately 4 weeks in the summer.
Looking for someone to travel with. I am a Chinese American and speak pretty good Mandrian.
Whoever is interested, shoot me an email.

Hi. I am in the Chicago Backpackers group in the United States and I'm trying to find out worthwhile areas to do a 2-3 night backpacking trip.

I'd like to visit the more traditional areas of China, rather than the Tibetian or Western regions. I would be interested in hearing any suggestions. (Areas to visit/best time to visit)

wnm: Beijing and Xi'an would be the top destinations on your list. Other good destinations to consider would be Shanghai, Nanjing, Hangzhou, Suzhou, Huangshan and so on. What you choose would depend on the amount of time you have and the amount of time you have available to spend in China.
Best time to visit would be Sep/Oct, and then Apr/May. However avoid the 1st weeks of May/Oct like the plague.
