Fellow travellers to China November/December

Travel Forums Asia Fellow travellers to China November/December

Hello everybody! I'm planning to be in China either in November or December 2012. I'm planning to visit Bejing, the Yunnan region and - if the legislation changes permit me to - Tibet. Everything more or less in a month.

I would love some advice about whether it's better to go in November or December or if it doesn't make a big difference anyways. Also, I was wondering whether it's actually safe to travel around in China as a solo girl (I'm 24) or not.

Either way, I would like to find some travel companions, does anyone want to engage in an adventure in China? :) Maybe we could share our travel plans and try to coincide somewhere!

Don't forget it will be cold in Yunnan / Tibet at that time of year, especially at altitude... I'd aim for November as early winter is probably better weather.

Yunnan is gorgeous, and easy to get around. You can fly into Kunming and then train/bus around Dali/Lijiang /Shangri-La.

Have fun!
