Am interested in purchasing a Tamron Lens for my Canon T5i but am hesitant because of the warnings of electronics stores in Shanghai. How do I verify the store & merchandise prior to purchase? Am I being too cautious?
I will be in Guilin in late December. I have heard that the water in Li River may be low at that time of year and that the cruise will only go from Daxu to Yangdi and will not go all the way to Xingping, therefore, skipping the most beautiful part of the Li River. Is there an alternative to go down the Li River other than being on the big river boats when the water is low? Is Yangshuo worth staying for a night or two or should I just go there on a day trip from Guilin? I want to go to Huangyao. How do I go there from Guilin? How long is the bus ride? Could I do it as a day trip or should I stay there overnight? Thanks
I have a few extra days to spend in Shanghai and would like to know what ancient water towns to visit. Looking to visit the ones that are not over run with tourists.

I've bought tickets to China from Jan 3rd to 16th, arriving in Peking and leaving China from Shanghai.
My first idea about itinerary was spending 4 days in Peking, taking a night train to Xi'an, staying there for 2 days, then train (or flying) to Hangzhou for 2 days, 2 in Suzhou and 3 in Shanghai (all those cities in trains).
However, I really thing it's gonna be kinda busy, specially considering it's gonna be winter and I won't be traveling really light.
What I really wanted, apart from visiting Peking and Shanghai, is to visit some other less touristic places, a "traditional China". Xi'an seems to be cool due to the Terracota warriors so probably it's an important place to be included in my trip. All other places, I'm confused if it's worth it visiting or not.
Hangzhou seems to be beautiful, but it's gonna be winter, not sure if visiting this city makes more sense in summer or spring.
In Suzhou I loved the canals in Zhouzhuang or Xitang and wanted to visit one of them.
To make it even more complicated, other places that I didn't consider visiting seems to be really nice. The old town of Lijiang seems to be exactly what I meant as "traditional China", but it's so far away and getting from Xi'an to this city seems to be complicated. Guangzhou seems to be really nice as well, but also far away and probably "one more big city".
So my question is: What would you do? I know this question is kinda hard to answer, but some ideas would be great to me, would help me a lot.
As an information, I've been to HK couple of times already, that's why it's not part of my plans.
Thank you a lot in advance!

Hello, I have an upcoming trip to Beijing in a couple of weeks and I would like to know how to get to Simatai from the centre of Beijing. I have never been there so I would like to have all the details you can give me. It can be by train, bus, anything, I just need it to be detailed, because I do not want to get lost in Beijing :) Also I have read that people can sleep there by locals, can someone confirm this information? Thank you, looking forward to your answers.
If there are some locals from Beijing here, I will be happy to meet you there if you are interested in exchanging cultural experiences and meeting new people (I am from Dresden, Germany, btw)
We're going to be in Hong Kong and we have about 15 - 17 days free before heading to Bangkok. We were thinking of going to Guilin / Yangshuo for a number of days and then some nearby attractions before going to HK. We are looking for some nearby sites in South China that are doable and worthwhile. And from where we can get to Bangkok without too much hassle.
This will be in January.
