Good morning Sharon,

Thanks for getting in touch Smile

I am pasting below an excerpt from our information we send to our customers when they've booked, I hope this will help. Regarding the current status in China re. weather and flooding, we monitor it everyday and take FCO advice, to date none of tours or their components are affected.

----------------------------------------
Climate & Clothing
Casual dress is the most appropriate clothing throughout this holiday; we recommend layers of clothing as it can be chilly in the early mornings and late at night.

All our China tours require you to be fairly fit as you walk a fair distance due to the amount of sightseeing included. We suggest you take a comfortable pair of walking shoes/boots, sun cream, sunglasses and a hat. We would also suggest you take a small rucksack to carry drinks etc.

Winter months - October to mid March
Travelling to China during the winter months is ideal as you will avoid the usual crowds. However, please remember that you will need to wrap up warm by wearing several layers of clothing to combat the cold, as much of your time will be spent outside, sightseeing. You will need to take with you a winter coat, hat, gloves and warm comfortable footwear.

Spring months - mid March to mid May
The climate in China during the spring months is pleasant and sunny with daytime temperatures averaging 50-60ºF. However, you will need to take with you a lightweight waterproof jacket in case of the odd rain shower and also a warm sweater/ jacket to wear in the evenings.

Summer months - mid May to September
The climate in China during the summer months will be quite hot, with daytime temperatures reaching the upper 80’s we recommend that you take with you lightweight clothing.
---------------------------------------------

In respect of flight times, it is a direct flight back from Hong Kong to Heathrow, with a flight time of around 11.5 hours,

I hope this help,

Kindest,

Ben
