Hi there, I lived in Jakarta, Indonesia and intend to bring my 70th years old Mom for a trip to China. My brother in law intend to bring his Mom also and we are planning to meet at KL/Spore , group of 8 person (together with my wife, my 7yrs old daughter, 2 yrs son, and my sister) and have a guided tour to these places. Its more like because none of us speak Mandarin (except my brother in law) and I once saw Guilin and thought it would be great to have a vacation there.

I checked with few travel agents and the best time to visit is on September (planned to do it on Sept 28 - 8 days tour max, my daughter would be delight if we can end up at Disneyland Hongkong).

Please share your opinion/ides/ information on reliable group tour and best attractions in these places.

thank you.

Don't visit mainland China in the 1st week of October as it's National Day holiday week. Even if you're on a group tour and don't have to worry about accommodation and etc, you'll still have the problem of too many people at the sights and getting stuck in traffic.

If you're on a group tour, I don't think you'll have much say about which attractions you'll be able to visit, so is there any point to naming those?

The price will much higer than usual in Sep,2008. It is only a month late than Beijing Olympic game and the price of hotel still high. So if you have time, you can visit China in Apr or later March. It is much better than Sep.
