Memorable parts? Visiting the Big Wild Goose Pagoda in Xi'an and seeing the amazing jade carvings and Buddha statue. Tips? Beijing airport is full of fairly elaborate scams - call your guide if you can't immediately see them. It's worth getting a SIM that works in China, too, for this reason. Local benefits? I felt like this benefited the local people, though I don't think it specifically reduced environmental impact. Overall rating? Amazing experience, one of the... (more)Owen Cawley

It is really hard to pick favourites but Hong Kong was probably the least favourite part and we would have preferred more time elsewhere. The cultural/historical visits were enough to inform and illuminate without becoming too lengthy for... (more)Linda Mail
