We started to plan our next trip to China for this fall (2013) probably around the September. We prefer to go in the spring and or fall timeframes because it is not too hot or cold and we avoid the major travelers in the summer time. We plan on flying from LAX to Beijing and stay several nights in Beijing to visit the Great Wall, Forbidden City and the Tiananmen Square. We are looking at Chinese hotels on elong.net and ctrip.com sites for the best prices. After Beijing we plan to take the bullet train from Beijing to Nanjing and then a short car ride to Lishiu (near the Nanjing Airport). After a week in the Nanjing area we plan on visiting our travel accessories factories in Shenzhen and Cixi (Ningbo area). We will probably fly from Nanjing to Shenzhen then fly back to Hangzhou to visit Cixi. We plan on staying for 5 weeks in China. We had such a positive experience with Air China airlines so we are trying to book with them for our flights. We were in China for Chinese New Year this year and Air China has new 777 airplanes from LAX to Beijing. We booked directly on the Air China English version website and reserved our seats which are a major plus for me. The check-in process was excellent and the outstanding service during the flight cannot be beat for economy seats.
Passionate for everything related to China travel.
