      i would like to go away on vacation in DECEMBER-JANUARY. i can leave as early as DECEMBER 10, 2016 and return at the latest on JANUARY 8, 2017. i would like to go somewhere SUNNY and HOT, preferably with a BEACH, and NOT (TOO) EXPENSIVE. i would be travelling alone. i am not too fussy about the destination, but a basic minimim would be nice. is there a website that has special deals with last-minute deal on 'surprise' destinations? i heard about that some time ago, but i am not sure where. thanks in advance!
      p.s. i would be leaving from MONTREAL, QUEBEC.

    • Beijing Capital International Airport

      Beijing Shi Sep 26, 2016 at 7:05 AM


      Do you think 60 minutes is enough for international transfer in Terminal 3 at Capital Airport?
      I am landing at 12:25 and the connecting flight is at 13:25, so I have exactly 60 minutes.

      Hello, we are traveling to Bejiing next week for several days (I know it will be busy as it is a national holiday), but want to know recommendations for best experiences at the Great Wall. We have looked at several tour agencies, it is advised to take a tour with a guide?

    • visit to Datong from Beijing

      by limlaycheng Online Now Jul 25, 2007 at 9:12 AM

      We are planning a trip to Datong from Beijing - can anyone advise if there is nice scenery on the way if we take train in day time? Would we be able to buy soft sleepers on a day train from Beijing to Datong ? We thought of spending 1 nite in Datong and then taking the CITS tour for 1 day to Yungang grottoes and hanging monastery. Then to return to Beijing subsequently same day in evening - would there be long distance buses departing Datong to Beijing or would it be better to take soft sleepers on nite train but there would be problem what to do for whole nite in Datong while awaiting for train which leaves about 2300 hrs or so for Beijing. Planning to go Datong on Wed 26 Sept and returning Beijing on 27 Sept - travelling with 2 elderly folk in 70s. Any advice much appreciated

    • Datong -- is one day enough?

      by heymikey Online Now Mar 26, 2007 at 11:08 PM

      I'm thinking of arriving in Datong early morning from Beijing and leaving later that night to Xi'an. I don't really intend sticking around town for more than a day and I only plan to see the cave and the hanging monastery. I just have some questions about the logistics:
      (1) Can I book a cheap tour through CITS once I arrive in Datong? If so, how much?
      (2) Are there any storage lockers in the train station?
      (3) Are there any shower facilities at the train station?
      (4) I will be arriving in Datong on May 7, which is during the Golden Week. Will it be hard for me to book a sleeper ticket from Datong to Xi'an on this date?

    • Train tickets back to Beijing

      by tanby Online Now Jan 26, 2007 at 7:33 PM

      I have checked with a few online travel companies in Beijing, only able to get Beijing-Datong train tickets.

      How can I arrange for someone or travel agent in Datong to help get Datong - Beijing overnight sleepers?

      Intend to visit Datong's Yungang Buddhist Caves and Hanging Monastary only.

      Has any VTers gone with CITS day tour to these 2 places? How to book?

      Boarding the Trans Siberian in Datong

      by mikegr Online Now Jun 12, 2004 at 7:47 PM

      I'm intending to travel from China to Western Russia on the Trans Siberian. I was wondering if it is possible to board the train at Datong, rather than in Beijing (I've been to Beijing before and it will add a long distance to my travel plans if I have to go back there). I'm not planning todothe journey in one go - the first leg would be as far as Ulaan Baatar. Hope you can help me out with this - I'd appreciate any information. Thanks - Mike
