My sister and I (both in our mid-20s) are planning a trip to China in June for 2-3 weeks. We love to travel - but have never been to Asia. From our research, people have encouraged us to take an organized tour since we have heard that China can be difficult to get around if you don't speak mandarin (we don't!) Even the tour books mention this.
I would love to get feedback from any one who has travelled china not on a tour. How was it? Was it difficult? Frustrating?
Thanks in advance!
